I especially love the monochrome palette and hand-generated li...

A fantastic presentation from ManvsMachine last night at Glug London's summer do. It was so interesting to see the different options that went to Channel 4 for approval.

I really love the simplicity of this More4 rebranding concept by London based design & motion studio, Man vs Machine.
