Mr. Div is Tumblr I find myself (and apparently 30,000 other followers) visiting quite often, due to the amazing world of Animated GIF’s and Motion Graphics that inhabit within, designed by Matthew DiVito.

Branding 10,000 Lakes is a project or massive undertaking by Art Director and Graphic Designer Nicole Meyer.
