This past week—number 11, for those of you who are keeping count—saw noticeably fewer submissions to the Coroflot Genius Gallery, possibly due to a little hurricane that went by the name of Irene. Still, we're pleased to report that submissions were as strong as ever, particularly in illustration and graphic design, and we're happy to share the best of the best, as well as our latest prize winner. Once again, we have a dazzling mix of cars, packaging, illustration and other designs—check 'em out below.
Industrial designer / Preschool Design Director Joe MacCarthy of Oakland, California made the cut for the Genius Gallery last week, but his consummate portfolio warrants a little more attention... which he's getting in the form of this week's book prize! Not only is he an outstanding designer, he's also been on Coroflot since 2001 and his activity has paid off: Joe's garnered some 4500+ likeys, all well-deserved. Congrats, can't wait to see what you come up with!
Zofia Bogusz (New York, New York) - Zofia's lush paintings are all the more beautiful for the natural canvases she paints them on.
Marc Senger (Boston, Massachusetts) - Marc's vehicle renderings are great, but some of his other concepts are even better.
Dirk Dzimirsky (Bocholt, Germany) - Dirk's hyperrealist drawings are (hyper)really unbelievable... we'd love to see these in person.
Phil Rose (Sydney, Australia) - Phil's product design portfolio is as straightforward and focused as it gets.
Yael Miller (Lakewood, New Jersey) - Yael is a pro at expressive, eye-catching packaging design, and her vanity barcode design ain't bad either.
Mark Law (Merseyside, England) - Mark takes Dieter Rams' (or Jony Ives') less-is-more approach to heart in his electronics designs.
Daniel Newman (Newberg, Oregon) - Daniel's intricate illustrations are worth a closer look.
Katarzyna Bazylczyk (Warsaw, Poland) - Katarzyna's simple designs would add a nice, playful touch to any desktop or bookshelf...
Keep those submissions coming, folks: we have three more galleries and one more prize to give away. Head to the Genius Gallery to submit your portfolio today!
