DesignUnit

I’d argue that many of the unwritten rules for design (you know, flush left, ragged right, 8/11, and so on) become obsolete when designing for fashion, which is why I’m always a little jealous when I see a portfolio filled with work like that of U.K. firm DesignUnit. In particular, I’m digging the layouts for [...]

Tim Boelaars

I grew up camping, fishing, and hunting, and so I guess you could say I was naturally drawn to these pieces by Tim Boelaars, an illustrator from The Netherlands. While I don’t do much hunting these days, I still do fish and camp, and there’s a simplicity his artwork that really captures the spirit of [...]

Stetson

Your free font fix arrives a little early this week, in the form of Paul Soulellis’ geometric Stetson. I’ve admired Soulellis’ work for some time now, and was surprised to see he offered his typographic exploration as a free download on his site. Stetson was created from a small photograph of hand-drawn type found in [...]

Studio Patten

Studio Patten does: art direction, graphic design, editorial illustration, web, typography, and packaging. I dig their playful approach to both design, writing, and illustration. Sometimes you see awesome work, but their explanation or tone of voice just doesn’t seem to fit. Studio Patten makes it simple and poetic: Trusting in design as a starting point. [...]

Studio 2br

I’d like to begin this post by pointing out that, as a new design blog, I basically rely on looking for inspiration and content from, well, other design blogs. There’s a slew of them that I visit on a regular basis and I try to reference sources whenever possible. Today, I’d like to point out [...]

Offscreen Magazine

Interesting concept for a magazine I came across today on Swiss Miss titled Offscreen. We spend a lot of time in front of screens, looking at amazing websites and apps, and this “collectible” magazine will give us a glimpse into the lives of the people behind these creations. This validates my theory that humans still [...]

Feltron 2011 Annual Report

Even though he was busy putting together the Facebook timeline last year, giving presentations on data, charts, and numbers, and teaching Interaction Design at SVA, Nicholas Felton still managed to find time to compile data and create graphs for his personal, and now ubiquitous, Annual Report. Although, this year it comes in the form of [...]

Coast on Komono

It could be my affinity for large lifestyle photography on newsprint, or it could be the soft tones of the photography itself, but I’m really liking the looks of this catalog for Komono by Belgium design firm Coast. Devised as a series of unbounded posters, the catalog unfolds to reveal each photo overlapping the next. [...]
