An extraordinary bit of branding & identity work by Raul Gomez for La Bocana restaurant in Cadiz, Spain. It’s particularly cool to see a little of the sketch work leading up to the final graphics, which make the place look delicious! The design team even had the chance to get out of the studio and hand-paint the mural inside.
Call me old fashioned, but I like having an actual calendar – you know, one made of PAPER – in my life. Hung up in the kitchen or propped on my desk; it’s a sweet, gentle reminder of the passage of time. (As always, click to shop!)
I was doing some math in my head (yes, really) and calculated the fact that if one is in the mood to send out greetings of the season, ye best start picking out the cards! Here are a few of my favorites from this years crop… (As always, click to shop!)
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.

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!)
