I really admire the type work and aesthetics by Copenhagen/New York based studio NR2154. They are the guys behind the initial design for LOVE magazine (which has a FAB masthead) and I also really like their work with Rika. I think both are original takes on approaching the identity for a magazine treating the masthead etc. as something more than just stuff to stick on the cover.

Atelier Martino & Jaña

It is safe to say that I am definitely NOT a fan of jazz. I know that it’s a bratty attitude to say that I don’t like an entire genre but it just really stresses me out. What I do like about jazz though is the graphic design that often accompanies it. Like the work by Atelier Martino & Jaña. They’ve done so much amazing work over the years for jazz clients and there’s super nice type and publication design.

I LOVE the book as media and when I see someone who makes it something special it makes me so happy. I shared Sara de Bondt’s design for Jonathan Safran Foer’s special edition before but you should check out Visual Editions the publisher behind it. They do books with visual writing, books that aren’t just books, but that has conceptual meaning in how they look. Visual Editions started a Flickr account where there are also some great examples of other people’s work (second example below). Would love to see more of this!

I blogged Design Army more than four years ago and I was so happy to have my eye caught by new-ish work of theirs. Did you see the AMAZING work they did for the Washington Ballet and their ‘Alice inWonderland’? I LOVE the display type, I LOVE the photography, I just LOVE the whole shabang! If only Design Army would put more stuff on their website!

Fat or fiction

How to make counting calories look attractive? Right this way! Have a look at this little project, a collaboration between Christina Winkless, Anna Brooks and David Rosser. I would love to see this site built out even further with loads more stuff to look through and loads more clever infographics.

Penguin – Great Food

Have you seen the Great Food series from Penguin? I love it, makes me feel so nostalgic. It’s kinda like rummaging through your grandmother’s secret recipe books or looking at vintage cookbooks on holiday somewhere warm and lovely. These are my fave ones. See the entire series here.



More Tong

Was totally blown away when I saw this series of posters by Chinese designer More Tong. I think they are so dramatic and contrastful and I really admire the skills behind drawing these characters. They just seam so much more complicated than our silly little alphabet don’t they? Fab work!
