Tree of Life

From a distance, this poster looks like the imprint of a tree stump. But trust me, there's more to this poster than meets the eye.

Viewers can see that the bigger imprint is actually made up of minuscule animal silhouettes. As the artists describe, "animals revolve around their living space, the rainforest. And since animals are not able to speak for themselves, the destruction of their habitat leaves them suffering in silence."

This poster goes beyond portraying a captivating image; it speaks to the responsibility we, as humans, have in letting animal species thrive in their natural environment. I'm so impressed by this design because it goes beyond pleasing the eye... it warms the heart.

Three guys with three ambitious linear concepts based on movement, learning and food were able to turn the trip of a lifetime into a beautiful and compelling short film.
The footage is simply stunning.
Take a look.

Typography on a Chalkboard, Simply Stunning.

Take a look at this time-lapse video to see watch the evolution of the Nagging Doubt Viognier wine label. Created by Bernie Hadley-Beauregard & Laurie Millotte of Brandever, the typography on this chalkboard label was completely hand-drawn! If only I had that kind of patience...
