King of diamonds Sagmeister homage
Rejoice! There is new Daft Punk material imminent! If, of course, you have been under a rock for the last week, i shall point you in the direction of this teaser of new track Get Lucky and this video of the new outfits designed by Hedi Slimane (and thus instantly coveted). All of this is VERY VERY EXCITING for someone who grew up dancing in smoky nightclubs to the first three albums.
Anyway, the long and short is that I wanted to draw Daft Punk so here you go: Guy Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter in full robot regalia. Enjoy!

Received a beautifully printed invitation to the University of Readings BA Graphic Communication degree show this morning.
I’m looking forward to seeing all your work!
RANE | Francesco Muzzi
During the redesign of the magazine IL I was asked to develop, under the creative direction of Francesco Franchi, the visual project of the new cultural section: RANE.
The brief was to create a sort of magazine inside the magazine, with its own bold language: the tone of the articles was provocative and challenging and the visuals had to reflect this attitude.
The first and foremost inspirations for the project were some futurist magazines like Lacerba and Dinamo Futurista: the name RANE comes from a quote of a medieval poetry work (called L’acerba) from Cecco d’ascoli, which was used by the magazine Lacerba as a sort of payoff (the whole line goes as “Qui non si canta al modo delle rane”). Starting from there, we tried to elaborate a more modern language, incorporating infographics and visual storytelling to accompany the articles content or to build a parallel-yet-related story along them.
While the basic text font is the same used on the rest of the magazine, the titles are set in Graphik, designed by Christian Schwartz, who also custom-drew the letter masthead RANE
After the project was done, I kept working on the section for the first six issues, designing it and also making the illustrations and infographics. I then left the project in the good hands of Micaela Bonetti, who already helped me finishing this first 6 issues.
Words cannot describe how in love I am with this guy’s work.

I’m in the process of revamping my portfolio, personal id and website. The first step for me is revisiting and rethinking the design of my personal mark.
I’m not quite finished redesigning the little guy, but getting close. The curvature of the feet and the twisted contortions of the right hand, still need some work.

In the same way that Disney’s Mickey Mouse, or Studio Ghibli’s Totoro, serve as both mascot and corporate mark, my intent is to design a “living logo- A mark with a personality and back story. I wanted to create an icon that not only serves as my brand id, but also acts as an extension of who I am as a person- the visualization of my personal life philosophy, as well as a representation of my approach to design, my style as an illustrator and as an artist, overall.

I’d love to live in a house similar to this in size, one day, except with electricity and central heat and air. LOL
Born in 1944 and completely self-taught, Lou Brooks was once employed as a dishwasher at Howard Johnson’s on the Pennsylvania Turnpike before undertaking a more lucrative career as illustrator, designer and author. His art has appeared in just about every major national publication, including over a dozen commissions for covers of Time and Newsweek. His comic art appeared continuously for ten years in Playboy Magazine, and is recently featured in Playboy: 50 Years of Cartoons, edited by Hugh Hefner (Chronicle Books).
His ubiquitous re-design of “the little guy in the top hat” for the game of Monopoly is practically as famous as Mickey Mouse, and is known internationally to anyone who plays the game.
Major advertising clients include: Coca-Cola, Pizza Hut, Budweiser, Dr. Pepper, CBS, NBC, Milton Bradley, Nikon, Sony, IBM, TWA, Clairol, Verizon, AT&T, Exxon, and others too numerous to mention. His art has been animated for television by MTV, Nickelodeon and HBO .
For two years on Saturday nights, he raced a modified midget at Airport Speedway in Dover, Delaware. He has also at various times in his life worked as a disc jockey, stand-up comedian, and night club bouncer. Along with Bill Plympton, Elwood Smith, and Mark Alan Stamaty, he was a founding member of “Ben Day & the Zipatones,” an all-cartoonist rock band. But Lou’s proudest lifetime achievement: having dinner with Soupy Sales which escalated into an all-night joke-swapping marathon.
After almost twenty years in Manhattan, Lou and his wife Clare now live a few hours north of San Francisco in a secret little valley whose location he refuses to divulge.
He is currently developing several illustrated book projects.
