Sometimes designers create projects out of thin air or embrace a challenge that transforms dullness into a clever bliss. Ji Lee, a designer and frequent contributor to the New York Times whose work has been featured on ABC World News and in Newsweek, Wired, the Guardian, the Huffington Post, and Boing Boing, came up with Word as Image that invites you to see letters from a different yet familiar perspective. A former creative director at Google, and now a CD at Facebook, creates images of the words using only the letters without adding outside elements.
Japanese artist Riusuke Fukatori creates incredibly realistic 3D painting works of goldfish that swim in the bowls. The three dimensional fish look convincingly alive and real. Riusuke uses acrylic that he paints in layers with clear resin to create a dimensional effect.
