Creating a memorable logo may well be one of the most challenging tasks a designer can face. The success of an organization or brand can hinge on the effectiveness of a logo. So much information can be contained within those few shapes and lines. Here we present logos from designers who were able to rise to the challenge and produce exemplary work.

Showreels is a great way to present your work and it’s a science in itself to create a really great one.
This special feature is a selection of some of the best showreels I have seen out there the past few months. These examples are a mix of talented indivudial artists and studio reels. Wether it is how they are composed, the atmosphere, originality, or the work itself presented in the showreel – these reels got a little extra X.

So grab a big mug of coffee, sit back, and enjoy!

It is often said that 3 in 4 consumer buying decisions are made at the point of purchase. That is why it is crucial for product packaging to have maximum shelf presence. Great packaging should capture the shopper’s attention and give them enough information to close the sale. An effective package design should also build brand awareness and customer satisfaction in the purchase decision they make. In this packaging gallery, we present the latest of our findings from the wonderful world of packaging design.
