Hannah Jacobs – Animator

August 31, 2017

I really admire the work of UK-based animator Hannah Jacobs. Her films always capture a sense of raw, human emotion and feel very personal and intimate. Before first seeing her work through The School of Life, I never imagined illustration could be brought to life in such a way. Above is her showreel of selected work.

The colors and mood are incredibly beautiful. The Spanish designer (now Brooklyn-based) also does amazing work with typography and design. Check out his website here.

Francesco Franchi’s Infographics

September 30, 2016

Francesco Franchi is an award-winning art director and editorial designer based in Italy. I first discovered his work in the Cooper Hewitt Design Museum and was struck by the level of detail and quality of his imagery. His infographics are a real testament to the fact that often, the role of the graphic designer is to be an interpreter between the content and the reader. In Franchi’s words, “Infographics help us understand, create and experience our reality. They reveal the hidden, explain the complex and illuminate the obscure.” Infographics not only must be well-designed and meaningful, but they have to tell a story or narrative.

Look at more of Francesco Franchi’s infographics here, and watch a short video below.

Louise Fili

August 29, 2016

I just stumbled upon this graphic designer in my feed, and I am captivated by her work! Louise Fili is a New York-based designer, but her graphic design and typography, in particular, derives from beautiful Italian design. It is fresh and impeccable work in my opinion! She also has a Before & After page on her site which is cool to explore.

Check out her recent SVA subway poster video above.
