Get Lucky in style


Regular viewers of the ol’ D to tha J will already be aware of South African graphic swashbuckler Luke Ritchie. You may then recall his enterprise with @simonalander, LuckyFella Clothing Co., which was in the pipeline. True to his word, hey presto – he’s only gone and launched it! Says Ritchie; “LuckyFella Clothing Co was born out of a desire for clean and custom type-centric clothing. As a graphic designer and typographer, I wanted to […]

Mytton Williams {Bath}

Awesome agencies

D&AD, DBA Design Effectiveness, Graphis Design, Clio Awards, Roses… the list goes on. It’s an embarrassment of riches for Bath-based consultancy Mytton Williams. But don’t hate the player hate the game. It’s founders (with previous experience in Pentagram & Interbrand (née Newell & Sorrell)), have been trading in sumptuous creative solutions that simply fit the bill since 1996. Nice work. Nice ethos. Tw. @myttonwilliams / Facebook  

Matthew Lyons {UK}


Stunning illustration from UK based illustrator and man of the moment Matthew Lyons. His work is highly imaginative and full of stunning depth and subtley of colour. He also curates a nice blog of things he finds inspiring here which provides a great insight to where the nuances and style of his work is born.  

mooz {Recife}

Awesome agencies

An award winning team of designers located in the sunny climes of Recife, Brazil make up the creative talents of Mooz. With strong grounding in illustration their designs speak of the vibrant influences of living in one of South America’s most cultural places. This love of culture reflects in the projects Mooz take on, ranging from editorial design to simply stunning tee’s. Tw. @estudio_mooz

No Sügar Stüdio {Swansea}

Outstanding individuals

I think it’s best to start any post with a bit of truth. If even if the truth is, well, somewhat awkward… Martin Lee Grügel is an Everton fan. There; I said it. Make your peace with that now. But, and despite the fact that my own allegiances lie on the rouge side of Stanley Park we couldn’t begrudge him his rightfully earned place on the Journal. I’ve long been a fan of Martin’s work […]

Sara Kiesling {Minneapolis, Mn}


Absolutely love the work of Minneapolis photographer Sara Kiesling. Her bio states she began her work in the music industry in 2004 as a graphic/web designer, and started with photography in 2007. Sara has been doing photography professionally since July of 2008. In addition to music, her current primary focus is fashion photography, but she also specialises in headshots and senior portraits. There’s almost a magic to her absorbing images, the capture of her subject’s […]
