Rutger Paulusse {New York}

Outstanding individuals

Allow us to regale you with a tale of perseverance, triumph and the American dream… Hailing from Eindhoven, the Netherlands, meet Rutger Paulusse. His misspent youth was pivoted around graffiti-based antics, as he grew older his interest for letters only swelled; he kept drawing and tagging, drawing and tagging. Because of that, a friend of his, a tattoo-artist, motivated our young hero to go to art-school. He’d never thought of that… thus registered himself for admission. Alas, […]

James Kape {Sydney}

LWC / Outstanding individuals

James Kape is a New York based designer so a slight cheat this week but the boy does hail from Sydney, Australia. He focuses primarily on branding, print and web design. James is inspired by refined design, typography and photography. He approaches each project with interest and enthusiasm, always striving to create something both visually effective and appropriate for its intended audience. A perfect candidate to join our troop of outstanding individuals me thinks. www.jameskape.com

Mike Collinge {currently nomadic}

Outstanding individuals

Hailing from Wellington, Mike’s gone on walkabout. I know, I know, tenuous, it’s an aborigine thing, but bear with us. Perhaps it’s better we think of it as more of a design pilgrimage – a pilgrimage from the ol’ Long White Cloud to Europe; Hamburg to be exact (as we type), via a scattering of Scandanavian hotspots, Mike has asked not what the design world can do for him, but what he can do for […]

Sam Pemberton {Sydney}

Wow, move over Superman… there is a new hero in town. Currently working out of Sydney, Sam’s portfolio has recently made its awaited debut onto the world wide web; here is a tantalising tit […]

Stephen McCarthy {Dublin / London}

Outstanding individuals

Saturday’s St Patrick’s knees up made us take a good long hard look at ourselves ~ there was a distinct lack of presence from the Emerald Isle on our dear Journal. Enter Dubliner (though London-based) Stephen McCarthy and his delicious brand of goodies. And goodies they are indeed from the über talented chap. Just five years out of university and currently earning his crust working for Imagination, of his work McCarthy says he; “employs a reductive […]

Luke Woodhouse {UK-Sydney bound}

Outstanding individuals

You know someones portfolio is worth looking at when they cite applied branding to jumbo jets and spaceships as part of their skill set. Currently making his way out of the depths of the English Winter, Luke Woodhouse has (in his own words) ‘decided to try something new, in a new city, new country, and new Hemisphere.’ Something that I love to go on about is simplicity. Simplicity in an idea. Simplicity in execution. Luke […]
