We absolutely love the murals of Spanish artist David de la Mano, who is known for creating silhouettes and shadows of people on a journey, looking for their place in the world. thisiscolossal.com published some of his latest work which you can find in today’s Friday Favourites. In case you want to know more about David de la Mano, here’s the link to his Intagram which is filled with inspirational work.
Besided the beautiful work of David, we also came across the work of artist Thomas Dambo, who together with his team at the Danish Street Art Project has been building over 3,500 bird house installations across Denmark and beyond. The bird houses are being made out of recycled materials, which is the case for each of Thomas Dambo’s projects. Find out more about his work here.
Creative Review published a great collection of brand slogans that stand the test of time, including one of Design Bridge’s clients; KFC. Great read!

A Friday Favourites wouldn’t be complete without a foody touch, so here’s the lovely work of Matthieu Lavanchy who brings some of the world’s most-loved food emojis to life for the cover of The Gourmand.
