Effektive Design is not only effective, it’s f’ing BRILLIANT! Greig Anderson based in Glasgow, Scotland, UK has an astounding collection of work as well as a self promotional piece which worked so well it nearly had me in tears, joyous “I want to design something of that caliber,” tears.

First and foremost, I must admit that it has taken me this long to cross paths with Design You Trust, a extremely well organized blog with more visual inspiration than I know what to do with. With that said, I encountered a post featuring the work of Susanna Hertrich and her Chrono Shredder. A very interesting piece of work that she delves into on her own personal website.

Go ahead and scavange through Susanna’s impressive portfolio along with doing yourself the distinct pleasure of adding Design You Trust as one of your most trusted bookmarks.

Are you kidding me!? This packaging absolutely blows me away. Please take a look at my Eleven Magazine post, which goes much further in depth about the sneakers. It’s a simply amazing approach to personalizing a classic sneaker (produced by Concepts).

There’s a hilarious little click through of multiple vector illustrations on Ain’t Life Grand, that’s sure to keep you entertained. I love it when a person can combine humor and great execution, it can’t fail!

Ran across this image on Flickr and was thrilled to see a Brazilian McDonald’s menu that was designed for the previous World Cup with a handful of clever little illustrations.
