Underwater Life - Low Poly Illustration by Mordi Levi

After finishing my latest Low-poly portraits for “Game of Thrones” and “The Big Bang Theory,” I wanted to work on something different than a human portrait, and to see how this technique will adjust to different forms. This project took me almost 3 months to complete. All of the Low-poly Illustrations were made by hand. Line after line, poly after poly. No scripts and no automatic process.

Herman Miller Quality by Dress Code

A rare glimpse into the details and production at Herman Miller. Focusing specifically on the Eames Lounge and Ottoman, the video not only shares a visual account of the construction of the chair in Zeeland, MI, but narrates the process with an exploration of the ethos of Herman Miller design.

Minim Playing Cards at Ode to Things

 

Minim is a deck of regulation playing cards re-imagined by NY-based designer Joe Doucet, who managed to successfully reduce the familiar shapes of hearts, clubs, diamonds, and spades to minimal geometric symbols. The requirement to mark the backs of regulation cards has been fulfilled by a single diagonal line instead of the traditional ornamental patterns.

There are over 640 Google web fonts available for free. Problem is, pairing typefaces isn't easy. And, many of the fonts in Google's library don’t work well when applied to typical webpage (desktop) layouts. Part of the 25x52 initiative, this collaborative, ongoing project helps provide typographic inspiration for using Google’s web fonts for web applications.
