Nebula Series

Nebula-1-Design Crush

 

Artist Andy Gilmore’s Nebula Series is perfectly kaleidoscopic and mesmerizing. The collection of six pieces of Gilmore’s work is centered around a theme and hexagonal foundation shapes, the result being a poetic and dreamy experience to view.

PS: Read about my pre-existing crush on Andy Gilmore.

JazzberryBlue-1-Design Crush

 

Fast on the heels of yesterday’s Customized Map Wallpaper we have an ultra-modern take on city grids with these modern abstract city maps. The OCD in me gets excited just imagining the perfected monotony of creating each colorful city block!! (via Colossal)

Elemental

Elemental-Design Crush

It’s been 144 years since George Mendeleev created the Periodic Table. Artist Joseph Perry set out to design his own circular version, one that’s meant to be read clockwise from the center outwards. Elemental is a take on such a classic design that manages to maintain the integrity of the original while adding a updated graphic twist. I’d say it’s a success.
