  3. Rather liking the visual identity created for Vancouver based Brassneck Brewery by design studio Post Projects. The identity makes use of bold typography and clearly contrasting ink drawings. Cheers! (via AA13)

  5. Furniture maker Greg Klassen builds intricately designed tables and other objects embedded with glass rivers and lakes. Inspired by his surroundings in the Pacific Northwest, Klassen works with edge pieces from discarded trees (often acquired from construction sites, or from dying trees that have begun to rot) which he aligns to mimic the jagged shores of various bodies of water. You can see much more of work here, and several tables are available through his shop.

  12. Not satisfied with running a commercial design studio our Creative Director Daniel Freytag is also pretty handy with a camera in his hands and has recently setup his new photography site Freytag. His evocative images are of scenes that are, more often than not, overlooked for their seeming banality. And yet it’s in locations and still life such as these that Daniel’s talent comes to the fore, transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary through unique composition, colour and tone. Check our the site for yourself — Freytag.co.uk
