I first noticed Sydney-based design duo WBYK’s work on my recent trip to Australia for the Tycho tour. I was at the Metro Theater and the poster for a run of Best Coast shows immediately caught my eye. Once I got home and did a little more research I was really impressed by the depth of work in WBYK’s portfolio. I was also very surprised that their work somehow slipped by me for 7 years. Lots more good stuff over at their portfolio, some of the more exciting poster art I’ve seen in a while.
For those in the Austin, TX area, WBYK are having a gallery exhibit at Mondo through January 5th
Just a quick note to all our Australia friends that Tycho will be kicking off a three date Australian tour tomorrow night, our first ever.
Weds, Nov 21 – Hi Fi Bar & Ballroom – Melbourne
Fri, Nov 23 – Strawberry Fields Festival – Kawarren
Sat, Nov 24 – Metro Theater, Sydney
Hope to see you out, really excited for these shows, going to be the last of the year and happy to be sending 2012 off in Australia.

Betty Wants In crafted this very unique skydiving video using a GoPro. It’s exceptionally peaceful; it makes skydivers look more like they’re floating gracefully underwater as opposed to plummeting through the windy stratosphere on their way toward terminal-velocity.
I’ve never used a GoPro, or gone skydiving for that matter, and now I really want to experience both. Mission accomplished Melbourne Skydive Centre.
Toko is a multidisciplinary design studio based out of Sydney (formerly Rotterdam). Their work is difficult to pin down as they exhibit design prowess in many styles and mediums. In the works above you may notice a consistent ‘distress’ to each poster — whether it be a simple fade or a TV-like distortion. Almost looks as if the posters were laid out and then tampered with by some visually gifted distress-gremlin later on. I especially love the “A Lack of Space” piece.
Also notice they are sporting one of those ever so shiny .nu domain names.
