I love the work of Jason Munn (a.k.a The Small Stakes) for his clean, almost minimalist designs, which are always striking in their composition. He specialises in creating posters for gigs and, more recently, film screenings. I find it really inspiring the way he pares a band's identity down to a couple of simple visual elements and then plays them against each other in really interesting, clever ...

I heard via the grape vine that Interbrand Sydney worked on the identity re-invigoration. This could be partly their work. I think the logo still looks like it was designed by a grandad who thinks he look...

The guys at the Canadian studio Rethink have come up with the most incredible album artwork. Chris Tarry is not just a jazz musician, but also an accomplished author. Rethink turned his new album, Rest of the Story, into a little book of Chris' short stories. How amazing is the detail, that silver ribbon marker, the die-cut ...
