Lotta Nieminen

It doesn’t take much to please me, graphically, if the solution is smart, simple, and appropriate. Brooklyn-based designer and illustrator Lotta Nieminen accomplishes all three throughout most of her portfolio, but I’m particularly drawn today to her work for Maeven – an online shop of vintage and pre-owned designer clothing. It’s smart because the color [...]

BVD

Swedish design firm BVD recently gave their own identity a facelift, and I’m really liking the simplicity of the geometric letterforms they went with. From their website: We have given our­selves a new design. BVD has appointed a new CEO, installed a new Chair­man of the Board and wel­comed a new Part­ner and in our [...]

Salih Kucukaga Design

It’s the little things that please us designers the most, and Salih Kucukaga’s portfolio has plenty of little details to appreciate. Check out his latest work completed for Los Angeles’ Espresso Republic cafés. Notice the little orange ring at the bottom of Espresso Republic’s coffee cups – that match the letter pressed business cards. Helllo! [...]

Fivethousand Fingers

If you have a second today, head on over to the online portfolio of Fivethousand Fingers, a design duo from Vancouver, Canada. The first project that I noticed was, well, the first project – Dodge and Burn. According to the website, Dodge and Burn is “is an online boutique selling products based on the fetishized [...]

SilentPartner for Snowman

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 [...]

So I was perusing through some old bookmarks this morning — just taking a glance at some of the links my past self might have thought my future self would like to reference again — when I happened to cross this fairly recognizable branding project. So now I know who did this. See more work [...]

Live Stock

Brand consultancy Greenspace worked with Friends of the Earth to design the Live Stock logotype and a number of staging concepts to bring the event to life. The campaign itself is serious, of course, but that didn’t stop them from creating an atmosphere of fun. And that’s what I like most about this concept – [...]

Get London Reading

What is that, Avant Garde Gothic? Nice. I don’t think I’ve used that font since college, but I’m really loving its application for the Get London Reading campaign designed by KentLyons. Created for Booktrust to get Londoners reading books set in London, KentLyons created a simple type lockup set next to a line of books. [...]

Ineo Designlab

I can’t tell you much about this project other than it’s an identity for a wine label and it was designed by company out of Denmark. How’s that for investigative journalism? Something tells me that the logo was inspired by either the mountains or a loaf of bread. Either way, the circular icon made out [...]
