Robert Murdock Richard Pendavingh 26.05.10

I think most people are a little suspicious of the high price tag attached to large commercial re-branding and logo design projects. They look at something like this three letter wordmark for Nokia's 'Nex' division and wonder why something so simple cost so much to develop. Surely an experienced graphic designer could knock that out in an afternoon.

Sometimes a good, simple idea is like a gorgeous girl on the arm of some average-looking bloke.  You're jealous but at the same time you can't help but stare. I think this logo was a bit like that for me.

The good thing about living in Melbourne is that there are very few suburbs suffering from the sort of urban decay that you find in some European and North American cities.

I come across a lot of high-quality infographics in publications like New Scientists and I'm continually impressed by how designers find new ways to present information.

Corey Arnold Richard Pendavingh 21.02.10

There are some truly remarkable places to work in this world but few opportunities to really see them up close. Corey Arnold is a Photographer who has worked for most of his adult life as a commercial fisherman and his images of life onboard these ships are powerful and frightening but also shot through with humour.
