One of the picks has to be the latest in a series from Laurence King Publishers, Logotype. The hugely successful (and essential inclusions on any serious designe...

As has been well blogged about in recent times, there are an awful lot of hipster-esque identites surfacing around the traps.

I was fortunate enough to be taught...

With incredible studio experience behind her (um, RoAndCo and Pentagram, anyone?) this girl knows what's what. Everything she does has such a strong personal aesthetic and flair. Her illustrations are quirky and texture-heavy, but it's really her affinity with mat...
