We don’t know if it’s just us, but sometimes we find ourselves lost in the sheer amount of brilliant work that’s out there. With this in mind, we’ve started Blue Stag Selects. Collecting our favourite finds over each month for your viewing pleasure. Whether we’ve found something thought-provoking, eyebrow-raising or just pretty to look at, you’ll find it in here.
The Equal Justice Initiative confronts racial injustice. Advocating for equality, and creating hope for marginalised communities. I’m a huge fan of their work and I’ve chosen this brilliantly-made and deeply informative timeline. As it takes a day-by-day account of racial injustices and presents them in a form that’s easy to understand and learn from.
In the words of EJI:
‘[We] designed A History of Racial Injustice as a set of tools for learning more about people and events in American history that are critically important but not well known.’
I enjoyed having my eye for detail tested by a series of frustratingly difficult puzzles on Can’t Unsee. The retro problem-solving game, asks you a series of spot-the-difference questions that get more tricky as they progress. Guaranteed to get you scratching your head whilst strengthening your visual language understanding.
My choice is an anarchic, surreal tale of a law enforcement officer ready to prove the world he’s still got it. Wonderfully directed by Josh Soskin with a cheeky sensibility and great attention to detail. Housecall is an unforgettable four-minute burst. Without spoiling it, we’re going to label this one NSFW.
Maxim Shkret’s stunning 3D sculptures caught my eye. Fulfilling the creator’s aims experimenting with the intersection of digital and physical worlds. He builds each of the immense works digitally before created in physical form via 3D printing and 5-axis CNC machining centre. You’re going to want to see these sculptures for yourself!
This genius chatbot battles boredom and procrastination with helpful nudges towards good ideas.

I have chosen Bored AF as a way of making better decisions – we could all learn a thing or two from this chatbot.
I’m a keen coffee slurper and grew up loving cartoons. Therefore, this branding project by Futura for Austin, TX roastery Superthing hit the sweet spot. I dig the playful, hyperactive design approach, vivid colours and the way it’s applied across the entire project.
My February selection is Nathan W. Pyle’s charming comics. Approaching the mundane aspects of human life from an intergalactic standpoint. Nathan W. Pyle’s well-written alien lifeforms have struck a chord with me, Blue Stag’s resident space enthusiast. They explore such earthly eccentricities as vintage wine, peek-a-boo, dreaming and pet ownership.

There’s a rustle in the Welsh woods that has been whispered about for generations. They believe it to be Blue. They say it’s not sasquatch, but Stag. All that’s been spotted is the odd antler in the overgrowth or hoofprint on the forest floor.
We’ve taken matters into our own hands and set up a series of cameras to try and locate Seb the Stag for ourselves. Brave visitor, can you help us in our quest to unravel the mystery and marvel at the myth?Launch forest cam
