Craig Baldwin is a recently graduated graphic design student at the Winchester School of Art with a keen interest in print and publishing as well as blogging and web design.

Welcome to the sixth edition of Be Inspired! So this week I’m guessing I’m feeling in a bit of an illustrative mood because it seems to have added up many illustration but maybe that’s just what was presented to me in my RSS reader, which is Fever by the way.

I get through about 200 items each day from FFFFound, Design You Trust, Graphic Exchange and many more. If you feel you have some great work to share then feel free to email me; craigsbaldwin [at] gmail [dot] com.

Tebe Interesno

Be Inspired! (By Everything) 06

Ah good old Tebe (or whatever his real name is), he’s been illustrating for many years as you can probably tell from the fact he still uses LiveJournal; I guess he’s too settled in to bother moving. Either way his work is worth checking out and there’s plenty of it.

Pascal Monaco: 35mm

35 films in 2 minutes apparently, I can’t honestly spot many of them but I guess I’m just not a big enough film buff but that doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy the brilliant animation and illustration that just flows so well.

Irina Vinnik: Sketchbook

I would love to see this sketchbook in person to really enjoy the intricate detail in all her drawings, I think it really comes together in the typography; I can imagine them as really beautiful drop caps.

Jonathan Hoffman: Down For The Count

Be Inspired! (By Everything) 06

Not that I have anything against Twilight (all right I do, I loathe it) but the Count was here first and it’s quite satisfying to see this, also the title is quite the clever pun, get it?

Plaid: The Perfect Pour

Be Inspired! (By Everything) 06

Can’t really vouch for the information as I’m not a fan of hot drinks so I don’t particularly like Coffee but I hear it’s all the rage with designers so I’d thought you might enjoy this handy guide.

Tweed Tom: Brian

Be Inspired! (By Everything) 06

Apologies for how long this image is but I feel it’s important to be able to see it in its full size and not just close up shots that would be more friendly towards your scroll bars. ‘Brian’ is a five colour screen print and measures in at 1000mm x 353mm and costs £120 which for what it is, is pretty good value in my mind. Doesn’t mean I can afford it mind.

Leon Ryan: Arc-de-Trouser

Be Inspired! (By Everything) 06

A little bit of humour.

Patrick Branigan: 322

“A portfolio illustrating the influences and outcomes of five smaller projects. Each page is designated to a specific project. Each page is also a slip folder which would hold the original project described.” It’s the boldness of the yellow contrasted with the black, and the type, that I love. So just the normal things that attract me then.

Steven Burke: Poor Little Trees

I imagine the logging company was a bit miffed to find paint on ‘their’ trees but I don’t particularly care about that. A great way to personify the felling of trees and maybe make us a little bit guilty about it.

Ugur Derinogullu: GRA08

Be Inspired! (By Everything) 06

Does this look nice? Yes. What’s it for? Who knows.
