I don’t often share my sketches: I feel that within the sketches are possible other ideas for new projects, and it can sometimes seem a little trusting to bear your creative soul in such a way as to just asking to be ripped off. Guess I’m not feeling so cynical today. However: all images are Copyright of imjustcreative-Graham Smith 2012.

Seeing this reminds me I need to get my finger out and do something equally spectacular for my portfolio. As not real as this American Airlines might be, there is something undeniably easthetically comforting about this Experimental ID for American Airlines by Anna Koveses.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration Design Program is a modernist vision for an optimistic future.…Read More

Time to call out Ph0t0sh0pguy over on Freelancer.com for taking my PedalWorks logo, putting it in their own portfolio to pass of as their own work: simply calling it “work16″ as I guess calling it Pedalworks would be too obvious.
I’m particularly enthralled with this paragraph on their bio: “We are a branding, intellectual property and internet consultancy company that create and capture value for our clients by designing compelling brand propositions and experiences across all media applications.”
Maybe worth checking the rest of their porfolio for other cases of stolen work.…Read More
