In this inspirational roundup, you will find ten unique brochures that will put that creative spark back in otherwise humdrum brochure designs. Some of these brochures simply have a great design, and others have another distinct feature like 3d design elements that really make them stand out. Brochures and flyers are a very important element when it comes to promoting your firm. They represent you and what you do.

Share them with us in the comments! Stephane Pianacci I really like how Stephane clipped an image into the font and how he designed and placed the map on the inside of the flyer. Maurizio Pagnozzi There is a lot of action into this flyers’ design (which is very fitting for this media), but it’s very nice balanced. I especially like the logo–it’s sharp and clean and the yellow color conveys the energy behind the event. R E B E C C A _ W I L L I Looks different but great!

We all know that giving a well designed business card to a potential client is very important because it represents you and your business as well. In this inspirational collection, you will find 10 innovative business card designs that really stand out from the crowd. But one thing to note is that when designing a business card of your own, you need to keep you the layout as simple as possible because you don’t want your client to search too much for the email or for the phone number, right?
The name of a business sets the tone of an entity as well as defines the service expectations for potential buyers. Therefore, the success of a business weighs heavily on the company name. Additionally, a logo further defines a business, but it appeals to only one of our five basic humanistic senses–our sense of vision. A logo further defines a business and allows for easier visual recognition from buyers. So for today’s inspiration, we’ve rounded up a few well done logo designs that we hope will inspire your logo designs.

When I got to Goldsmiths to do Design BA, I was so involved…

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to do a large 3D anamorphic drawing.

By the end of this tutorial, you’ll understand my work flow from the first studies through to the final work. I’m also going to teach you all kinds of graphic tricks to help you work faster and draw difficult shapes such as guns and hands. 1.

To the Point: An Interview With Alex Mathers
In this collection, we are presenting a fine collection of experimental vector illustrations for your inspiration. The term ‘Experimental Art’ refers to exploring and discovering new and creative ways of art expression. Recently, experimental art is very popular among the designers as it gives them a freedom to express themselves without any limitations. Monster by Hassmework This experimental vector art portrays a unique way of art rendering. The interesting thing here is that how the artist uses triangles within the design to construct such a detailed portrait–a technique known as Mosaic Art. Kokeshi by Schizophrenic brain I find this experimental vector art interesting because of its vivid color and how the repetition of patterns is tactfully handled. The floral arrangement in between the characters gives this artwork a very nice look as well. Color construction 04 by Andre Oustinov This vector art makes its place in this collection on account of the vivid colors that blend together to create a pleasant and soothing visual effect. The Travellers by Dualform When designing with bright colors and bold shapes, it’s easy for a piece to appear overaloaded and crowded. This piece uses these bold artistic elements sparingly though, so it creates a simple, yet complex and intriguing “out-of-this-world” design. Curious mess by NELZ This is an experimental design created using newly spawned brushes together to create the feeling of a conjured mess.
