Great brand study work by Dawid Cmok, a graphic designer based in Zabrze, Poland. He expertly captures the essence and tradition of a barber shop through a design solution that’s thoroughly modernized for today.
Great range of graphic t-shirts’s from The Social Department; “hand printed by a couple of humans in the state of Ohio”. Using awesome typography, they create fun stuff for design nerds, foodies, “athletic supporters” and regional lovers. All t-shirts go for $25 & they offer both men’s and women’s sizes. (As always, click to shop!)
The Big Harumph is one of my favorite Etsy shops. They make letterpress prints and linocut prints from a studio in a converted church in the “nitty gritty” of Wichita, Kansas. Love the modern whimsy and cheeky attitude of their cards and prints! All of the linocut prints featured here today are 8″ x 10″ and sell for $22. (As always, click to shop!)
Abarrotes Delirio is a charming cafe located just outside Mexico City, in Roma. Founded by chef Mónica Patiño, they offer delicious gourmet fare using local products. Making it all the more inciting is the beautiful branding and environmental graphics by Mexico’s Savvy Studio; a multidisciplinary advertising & design firm whose work is consistently stunning.
These amazing environmental graphics were designed by Paris-based Sébastien M for the the School of Environmental Management & Engineering (EME), located just outside of Rennes, France. They have a kind of retro vibe (well, if you consider the ’80’s retro), that feels current without being contrived. It’s a feat to design something that’s both youthfully relevant and deftly sophisticated; yet he’s accomplished just that. Bravo!
Love this project by Sydney-based designer Olivia King. “Trigonometry is a concept packaging project that looks at the how an increasing demand for a greater user experience and interaction with a product can be met through a thoughtful design approach. Focussing first on establishing a bright and engaging visual identity for this idea, I also wanted to explore the way that an app can allow for a fully unique creation of an item that is tailored to the customer’s personal preferences – from colour, shape and material – and in doing so, elevate the value of the customer’s role in both the brand and its product.” Gorgeous!
Toronto designer Matt Greenwood recently created this brief video about design principles… with a little nudge towards breaking them.
