Moxy Creative: Sweet and Simple

Superbly creative and down to the bare minimum are the works from Moxy Creative House. They were featured back in November 2010 and are still killing it with simplistic designs.

Look ma! No breaks!

The chaotic, intricate and raunchy awesomesauce that is Bicicleta Sem Frieo is back after their epic EK Interview! This illustration studio collective from Brazil was first featured in 2010.
