01. Nike Transformer Style
Elroy Klee (opens in new tab) has over 15 years of multidisciplinary experience in graphic design, with projects ranging from brand design and corporate identity to packaging, online media, art work, advertisement campaigns, video and animation. This is a personal project in which classic Nike sneakers are reimagined as Transformers. We love sneakers (opens in new tab), we love Transformers, and we think this is awesome!
Sarah Ushurhe (opens in new tab) is a London-based illustrator/creative/writer who's available for collaborations, commissions, and freelance work. We think her sketches are just beautiful, and this one is typically entrancing.
03. Freeze Frame
Scott Oppenheim (opens in new tab) is an interactive designer living and working in Washington DC who specialises in web design, online advertising, e-mail marketing and Flash animation. He pursues generative artwork as a hobby, and we think this piece is just stunning.
04. Fluid Animals: Caiman Crocodile
Ben the Illustrator (opens in new tab) has an affinity with nature; "trees, flowers, animals, birds, streams, oceans, rainbows, mountains, grass..." - you get the idea. This cute creature is typical of his superlative work, which has won him clients including Nickelodeon, Pixar, and the BBC.
05. I My Me Mine
Caitlin Burns (opens in new tab) is a designer, illustrator, typographer and a bunch of other things, too: she describes herself as a "one-stop shop for getting any type of design project done". This bold and imaginative use of typography just blows us away!
