It’s time for another Designer Love post and today we’re looking at someone who I’d be surprised if you hadn’t heard of or seen his work before. I’m talking the awesome talents of Olly Moss.

It feels like ages since my last unique everyday design post! Today I want share some quirky and cool designs I’ve found over the past couple of months.
The Semi-Permanent Creative Conference finally rolled into Brisbane last Thursday after an unfortunate rescheduling from July. It was worth the wait for the 8 talented speakers that came to share their stories, experience and advice. This was also a special year for the SP as it was their 10 year anniversary (5th time in Brisbane). Despite the disappointment of the video intro saying ‘Sydney’ (Brisbane pride!), the day was, as always, insightful and inspiring.
Over the past couple of months during my usual Sunday RSS browsing, I’ve come across various products and concepts that would greatly help people in their daily lives. I’ve put them all together in a new unique everyday design post for you! So let’s see what we’ve got.
I’ve been a bit slack in following up on my designer love series so I figured I better get back into it. I was prompted to write about this designer from the buzz over the last few weeks about her latest project. I’m of course talking about the wonderful lettering work of Jessica Hische.
So you’ve all probably heard about the magical social ‘scrap-booking’ website thing called Pinterest yeah? I put off getting an account because at first it didn’t really interest me. However after browsing the site for a while I caved in and decided to get on the waiting list and see if it was worth my while.
Remember the favourite artists series from last year? Well I want to start another collection, except this time for designers. Lately there’s been a particular company’s work that I’ve falling in love with more and more. I’m talking about the talent from Interbrand Australia who I first mentioned last year during my Telstra brand refresh post.
If you work in web design, you probably use or have access to a google analytics account and if you have an account, you probably know that a new version has been rolled out over the past couple of months. I’ve spent some time working with the new analytics and while there are great new features, there are other things that equally annoy me and make me want to revert back to the old layout.
Most people I know (think that I’m crazzaeeeey!) use Google products or services at some capacity and since the launch of Google+, they’ve been slowly updating their UI and designs to give them a much needed face lift. Recently the new Gmail and Google Reader layouts were unveiled and it’s been interesting to see how the changes have affected my experience with them.
I think most of the Australian design community is aware of Telstra’s recent brand refresh by Interbrand which started circulating about a month ago. Since Telstra is arguably one of Australia’s biggest brands, it’s not surprisingly that this 3 million dollar refresh has been everywhere lately. I’ve decided to review the components of the campaign to see how it is now being rolled out one month on. Lets get into it!
