I think the re-brand of San Francisco Design Week is beautiful and adaptable, as well as being simple and clever. I love that the type in block allows the typeface to be translated into a different colour easily, while keeping the effectiveness of the logo. I love the idea of the letters peeking over each other - emulating the houses in the San Francisco hills. I think it's a personal touch that r...

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 ...

Lovely business cards for UK digital marketing company Tall. With a print process that involved die-cutting, laser cutting, block foiling and three different types of stock, they certainly pack a punch.  ...

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...
