Madgalena Marchocka is a Polish illustrator, with a typographic focus and love for animation. Her illustrations have a beautiful, tender, handmade quality to them. Homely and warm colour palettes complement the scratchy texture of the brushwork, further bolstered by her unconventional and striking use of negative space. We were lucky enough to be able to pick her brains about her practice. Her brilliant work "Eden" is available from graphic editions.

Vratislav Pecka, better known as Posterlad, created the Posterlad project to redefine how we perceive and interact with posters. His approach to the poster is aesthetic and ideas driven, rather than promotional and advertorial. On the Posterlad website, Vratislav says "the project is all about pleasing the viewer's eye. Because the world needs good looking things". And who could possibly disagree with that? The project has been a huge success, receiving awards and critical acclaim, and Pecka's style is hard to forget once you've laid eyes on it.
