It’s here again! The prestigious design conference, Graphika Manila, will once again inspire students and graphic enthusiasts this 2012 in SM Mall of Asia this August 11, 2012! I tried my luck in submitting an illustration for the GM 2012 book and I do hope I get in!! (>.<)*nervous! Anyways I look forward to the speakers for this year because my idol group (ano to? kpop group?) , Create.ph is participating! I heard it’ll be Sir CSJ89 and Rob Cham who will be presenting! Yey!
ARTIST FEATURE: Meet the super duper ultra kawaii duo, TADO ♥♥♥
The moment I saw their feature in Computer Arts I immediately said, KAWAII! (Cute for Japanese). TADO is composed of two graphic designers, Mike and Katie, and I’ve been a fan of them since 2009. Their works have been published in vinyl toy books, japanese themed art books and some merchandise you can see in Gola. Currently they hold a prestigious line of clients including MTV, Kidrobot, Nike, Adidas, etc. However I used to think that they were from the same group of Tokidoki but after checking their online portfolio, you can clearly see that both artists (Simone and TADO) have the same influences but had different output in terms of art style. Anyways! enough chit chat and click on the picture to see their website! ♥
collecting graphic design pieces! i usually get inspired from them a lot especially back from my FMCG graphics job in Unilever. now im hooked up with Body Shop’s perfume designs and Etude House’s make up packaging. :)
