As a huge fan of script fonts and hand lettering, I could not help but notice this pin while I scrolled through my Pinterest. A London-based designer, Craig Black, was interested in how humans survive in extreme circumstances. This project was based was based on the proven fact that humans can survive unexplainable situations such as surviving an avalanche for 24 days without food or water. This philosophy is based around Charles Darwin’s idea of natural selection theory and Walter Cannon’s ‘Fight or Flight Response’.

In order to translate this philosophy into design and simplify it to a greater audience, Black created an identity, package and product design for a beer company. The whole ethos of the design is based around when Charles Darwin first thoughts of natural selection occurred when he was aboard the HMS Beagle and if there was a shipwreck the only thing surviving was this crate of beer and therefore came the title of his project: ‘Only The Strong Survive’.

I was surprised by how much I gravitated toward this week’s pin of the week. You’ll notice that is it quite simple, both in concept and in execution. Yet, it is striking, so modern and so clean. Something about the black and white photo on the wall with a punch of color from the tape really catches your eye. This image proves that you do not have to buy something fancy to make your home look beautiful. All you really need is a print and some painters tape.

By now, I am sure you have seen this hilarious Shark Week 2014 commercial starring 80’s heartthrob, Rob Lowe.

As soon as August rolls around, there seems as if there is a sudden fetish for sharks. They are pretty impressive animals when you get to know them. Though 70% of sharks give birth to young ones, they are not included in the category of mammals. This is because they breathe through gills and have skeletons composed of cartilage, which technically makes them fish. And did you know that a shark’s jaw is not a part of its skull? They can dislocate and protrude their upper jaw to grab and hang on to prey. How cool is that?

All this shark talk has been a source of design inspiration. If you’re planning a Shark-Week themed cookout or birthday party, we’ve got you covered. Next family outing, have your little guy be the #KingOfSummer with Hello Little One’s Shark Bite Birthday Party Invitation.

I stumbled upon this pin while searching the World Wide Web and I fell in love. I have always had a mini-design obsession with triangles and an even bigger obsession with bright colors. Thus, everything about this design caught my eye. Australian designer, Olivia King, has crafted everything from the logo to the packaging to the mobile design for this Trig branding. In my opinion, it is everything a design should be — eye-catching, simple, and fun!

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder they always say; however, sometimes beauty may be hidden to the naked eye. Sometimes it may only appear briefly. Photographer Guy Tal shows us just that in his series, The Good BadlandsThe Badlands, a national park in South Dakota, is a harsh landscape where one could easily miss the beauty amongst its cracked, barren ground. It can be years before the brilliantly colored wildflowers grow from the desolate landscape. So we may not be able to view The Badlands’ wildflowers for ourselves, but thanks to Guy Tal we have the next best thing. Below are some examples of his work that show us that there is delicate and subtle beauty in abundance for any viewer with patience and desire.
