Our friends over at Column Five Media are always creating really cool data visualizations, and this one is no different. This annual report for Krochet Kids Intl. is not only visually unique and interesting, but it is for a company that has the awesome mission of empowering women. If you look at it on their website, you can’t fully comprehend everything that went into creating this report until you see behind the scenes. It is always nice to see companies stepping away from the computer and using tangible mediums to create awesome, interesting work.

We love the creativity and cleverness in using yarn to create the annual report of company that sells crocheted goods. Column Five used string and photography to visualize all of the data elements. Krochet Kids Intl. works to empower women from property stricken areas and help them transform their communities. Their model provides these women with jobs, education and mentorship. Learn more about Krochet Kids Intl. and check out their 2013 Annual Report here.

As I would never have found these illustrations in the wild, I was so happy I spotted them on Behance. Each of these fragrance bottle illustrations are so rich in color and texture. It was a smart move for artist Tatiana Boyko to stick to big, bold shapes when applying that much heavy texture. It seems like the textures are a bit heavy handed, but at closer inspection it works quite nicely. What an impressive series of advertising illustrations.

In honor of tonight’s full moon (and eclipse in some parts of the world), I couldn’t resist sharing these astronomy based prints by Small Talk Studio. All of this series is inspired by the sun, moon, and stars. I’m loving the effect of the limited color palette and textures on these illustrations. Unfortunately, Small Talk Studio is on hiatus, so I can’t find these prints anywhere, but if you like the style of their work, check out their Society 6 shop for other past projects.

Collaboration is a wonderful thing. It brings talented people together to create something better than would have been created by one’s self alone. Netherlands based publishing duo CoffinboysAart-Jan Venema and Niek Pronk, put together a collaboration for their latest project, Zacharias, and the results were a pretty awesome story filled with unique and varying art. I love how each page is something so new and different as each artist interprets the story in their own way.

Zacharias is a short story written by by Ingmar Heytze about a shrink who has just as many problems as his clients. The book was put together by Boris Rijksen and contributing artwork was done by Merijn Hos, Ward Zwart, Lennard Kok, Kim David Bots, Astrid Yskout, Yngwie Boley, Aron Vellekoop, Jasper Rietman, Pieter van Eenooge and Coffinboys Niek Pronk and Aart-Jan Venema. It can be purchased here and you can see more of the project here.

Every time I see new work by MUTI, I get excited. This small creative studio, located in Cape Town, South Africa consistently produces such excellent, fun work. Today I wanted to show off an awesome new poster they created that highlights the lighthouses of Southern Africa.

If you haven’t already been following MUTI, you really should. One thing that consistently wows me is their ability to work in a myriad of styles. You can follow their work on Dribbble, Behance and Twitter.
