jeremy pettis alphabet zoo

Some interesting interpretations of type as image here. I understand the idea to be that the word is illustrated to poses the visual qualities and characteristics of the animal in question.

some lovely photographs of manatees by chris hannant

Very nicely taken photos of manatees. Really communicate how amazing these creatures are.

manatees are endangered

The website below - of a group called 'Save the Manatee Club' is dedicated to saving the manatee from extinction. As of January 2011, Save the Manatee club says that there was only a 4480 manatee count.

manatee steamboat in the sky

Jack found this for me. A delightful illustration that captures the slow and lazy characteristics of the manatee by turning it into a sluggish steamboat. Why they are in the sky I am not too sure. But it's definitely a good thing.

4 posters advertising a series of 4 lectures about the experiments of the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland. These present a successful layout with some interesting imagery to accompany the text.

the planets book covers

Some interesting interpretations of the inner planets on these book covers that I found on Behance. The ground that is a closeup of each planet is a very interesting piece of imagery to include.

A really good example of a contemporary, well designed billboard in London, which incidentally is simply an advert in order to get people to 'Discover London'.

evaos contemporary restaurant

A great example of how contemporary design fits into an environment and how fitting design into an environment makes it spatially effective. This is relevant to designing the event that Chris and I are proposing to Glayva to promote it to businesses.

british library chopin exhibition

The design for this exhibition was done by Leicester and London based graphic design company Checkland Kindleysides. The aesthetic of the design fills the exhibition making everything work together. This is essentially what Chris and I want to employ in the promotional Glayva event that we would target business owners with.

Also, it would match the contemporary packaging that Glayva have recently had re-done by Elmwood. Here are some top notch redesigns of scotch single malts:
