I once asked if one color can define a brand. Of course that question was silly and rhetorical. Project Projects, and studio out of NYC that I greatly admire, proves that no colors are needed with the identity system they created for WORK Architecture Company. Make sure you check out more of their design work [...]
Shane Loorham teams with a host of design agencies in Melbourne as SilentPartner. Clever name, right? I have to assume it’s hard to go unnoticed, however, with a portfolio like Shane’s that is jam-packed with excellent examples of brand identities, custom typography, clever layouts – you name it. The fun calligraphy and illustration for The [...]
Jessica K. Heltzel, Tim Hoover, Eric R. Mortensen have teamed up to create The People’s Pennant, a project that aims to “elevate the pennant from the confines of sports to celebrate the everyday.” And elevate these pennants do. I really enjoyed watching their factory tour video – it’s the kind of thing where the process [...]
100 IDS: It’s a poster / video / business card(s) / self promotion solution, got it. Throwing one stone at the multiple media birds that are modern branding, gotta love that. Check out more work by Barcelona / Amsterdam / Portugal designer Silvio Teixeira. via The Strange Attractor.
Take a loot at this material for the Ten Days Arts festival, in Tasmania, Australia. Fun, energetic, and colorful, design firm Toko sought to develop “a versatile and dynamic identity based on the juxtaposition of the arts and nature.” The festival brings artists and performers from Island Cultures around the globe together for an island-wide [...]

Intro recently updated the design of their site and have included several great new projects. Among them is the Guerrilla marketing campaign for Foot Locker and Converse that brought together Yarn-bombing artists for an event in the streets of Berlin. The eco-friendly alternative to grafitti is quickly becoming a worldwide trend, and Intro appropriates the [...]
If design is about solving communications problems, then design is not art. In most cases, art abstracts communication. However, an education weighed heavily by postmodern art swayed me to believe that art doesn’t need to be framed and hung in a gallery. I happen to hang design on my wall. And I would be more [...]
Do the names Josef Müller-Brockmann or Herbert Matter mean anything to you? If so, the name Mike Joyce might also be of interest. In his Swissted project, Joyce has taken old Punk and Indie Rock posters and reformatted them in the Swiss International Typographic style. Some of the posters are clever, like the Black Flag [...]
A Clockwork Orange was a beautiful and deeply disturbing vision of Stanley Kubrick. It’s a really great movie, one of my favorites. These posters from Us & Them, created for No Doubt’s 2009 reunion tour, tap into the 1960′s corporate minimalist style, yet still retain that Kubrick creep factor. Great concept, great execution.
