Design in a Hailstorm #2: ilovedust

I absolutely love these guys. A multi-disciplinary design boutique, ilovedust specialises in creative solutions from graphic design and illustration to animation and trend prediction. The boutique is split across two studio spaces, one in exciting, hip, arty, and still-up-and-coming Shoreditch in East London, and one in a rustic former butcher's workshop in the Hampshire countryside. ilovedust claims that "the blend of both environments provides us with a unique and inspiring perspective," and as far as I can see, something must be working, because their portfolio site is fabulous. 

My favourite section is, of course, the illustration work, but some of the typography and graphic design is stunning too. I especially like the retro styling and soft, limited colour palette of the studio's re-branding of No.6 Cinema; and the amazing chaotic detailing and scale variation in the below editorial for Spread Magazine NYC and Colete.
