As we go along, we're picking up more and more talent to visit --and we've had several good nominations in the works. It's all about taking a broad look at this fresh and unique talent. Dear readers, I'd like to introduce you to Michela Picchi, Amanda Jane Jones and Amy Cox!
We're going to continue into April, since we have such an overflow of talent!
Michela Picchi multidisciplinary to say the least
WOW ... take color, shape, collage, and a special vision for illustration and you've got the world of Michela Picchi! Don't take our word for it, just ask some of her clients : Girl Effect, Nike, American Express Italy, Saatchi & Saatchi London, Fendi, Monikers Avaaz WW, De Morgen Magazine, High Tide Studio, Milk Magazine and Life & Death Records! It's all about 3D mixed with 2D! I love the Volks Bus, by the way! Michela writes :
I envision, develop and visualise both recognizable artworks & graphics. Everything is experimentation for me, and the point is how a perceptual experience is related to visions, and how to transfer it into artworks. I follow planets movements & they follow me
Amanda Jane Jones
Amanda is a graphic designer and art director from Chicago, IL. We checked in on Amanda several years ago, and we're delighted to revisit her digs, and catch up on her remarkable design works!
You will also want to visit her Instagram feed for some fresh photography!

Amy Cox ~ it's a paper world
Amy Cox from Falmouth, United Kingdom is into Typography Graphic Design Illustration in a big way! She's showing up all over the place through those graphics bundles hawkers with a huge selection of hand-crafted fonts.
The one that caught our attention is Paper Cutout Free Typface is a simple, display font made entirely by paper cutting. This is a personal project to create a working typeface which was created through paper cut.
You can get the fonts free at www.behance.net
See her installation at Blue Island Press
Another favorite font is LAND, also free.
