Viktor Hertz has proven time and again that he’s a master of creatively using negative space in design. His Time For Wine poster is a gentle reminder that it’s always happy hour somewhere! Purchase this poster at Viktor’s online shop. And he has even more posters for sale at RedBubble. Check it out!

This wooden mug designed by Oji Masanori makes me want to head into the forest to drink coffee and hang out with some bears.

Buy it at Mjölk.

These Photoshop levels landscapes by Jasper Elings are really clever. I’m having another one of those “Why didn’t I think of that?” moments.

One year ago today, on April 24, 2010, CMYBacon was born (If you’re feeling sentimental, check out my first post). It has been a blast putting the site together and showcasing the inspiring work of so many great artists and designers. Most importantly, I want to thank everyone that has been following my blog over the past year and encouraged me to keep finding new things. I have some fun plans for the coming year and I hope I can entertain a few folks along the way.

Cheers,
CMYBacon

Zagreb-based graphic designer Ena Bacanovic, a.k.a. Ruby Soho, has made some very witty, minimalist posters that I absolutely love. It was hard to choose, but here are my three favorites.

Ok, seriously, this keyboard rocks. The keys on the Engrain Tactile Keyboard by Michael Roopenian have a sandblasted wood grain texture and really break the mold of traditional keyboards. Unfortunately, it’s a prototype…but judging from what I’ve seen of his work I expect we’ll see some pretty wild stuff from Michael in the near future.

I really like these minimalist designs by Jonathan Calugi, which explore the concept of “human vs. nature”.
