Looking into typography & type packages, I immediately thought of Gemma O'Brien after seeing her speak & perform her process at various creative events in Australia. She is a real enthusiast for type, she calls herself a 'letterer' & treats the work she creates as Art. They are a visual masterpiece, all hand drawn & crafted with thought & process. She creates type packages for commercial use, but ...

I adore the work of Amber Asay, a recent graduate of BYU university who is living and working in Orlando Florida and interning at Disney Design Group. The examples of her work are student projects, and I was really impressed with her simple but clever designs. She has a clear understanding of what 'branding' means and executes this really well through repetition, typography and colour. The...

There's something about this curious little identity that I really like. The simple colour palette, maybe, with that Mambo-like red eye watching over it all? The fit-out makes the restaurant look like something from another world.  Make sure to check out ...

Nobrium: Towards True Precision in the Control of Excessive Anxiety Why is it that so many cool books are just so hard to find? Stumbled across this little gem, designed by Pentagrams Mervyn Kurlansky in 1971, for a Pharmaceutical company. As you would expect, captures the zeitgeist of the early 70's perfectly! ...

Ever wished the your enemy the worst? Like, maybe, being haunted by a ghost? Katey Mangels obviously has, and she has turned the idea into a wonderful identity and sales book for a fictional company called Phantom Calls that hires out ghosts to haunt people. ...

Brussels-based studio Stoëmp has a great portfolio of work, a classy website and really great record designs. I'm loving this one in particular, mostly for the behind-the-scenes shots of the print production. Messy and fiddly but such a bea...

Georgia Hill, the talented Australian typographer living and working in Berlin, designed these pretty "Reserved" signs for the Michelberger restaurant. And what a lovely way to secure your table - only they'll have to keep an eye on them, they might be too lovely for some sticky-fi...
