This has awesome written all over it! Art director and graphic designer Koji Iyama has started these installations across the Japan's countryside promoting masking tape and all the wonderful things you can do with it. With the big movement of wasbi tape on anything and everything craft, it looks as if big brother masking tape is taking things to a whole new level, yah!  We are in awe Koji, bravo.

Enjoy more on this project over at My Modern Met!  Follow him on Twitter @iyamadesign.

I discovered the artwork of Johan Thornqvist last week and fell in love with how he creates amazing little worlds and characters with a simple iphone photo of exterior or interior landscapes.  The photograph really comes to life when his illustrations hit the page.  You can check out more of his work on his website and can purchase prints from him, also check him out on Pinterest to see more of his great creations. 

Also take a look at the process that he uses in photoshop to create the multiple layers that goes into his work!

It's that time of year again! The time of year when the Make it Show rolls back into town and brings some of the best local designers together in a room, and open the doors to thousands of hungry shoppers. It truly is an amazing show. Wonderfully curated to bring you only the best in independent design.

Think museums are stuffy and boring ~ think again! These fake posters were done as a school ad project by Jenny Burrows and Matt Kapler, and they absolutely nailed it! Unfortunately the famous museum they were designed for didn't think they were so hot, and made them change the logo and copy at the bottom to read "Museums".
