I was checking out the winners of the European Design Awards and came across this project by Elyron, an Italian studio. They did the exhibition design for The Museum of Everything, a name that makes me quite curious! The design is vibrant and playful and I bet it will put a smile on the faces of the visitors.

I just came across this signage project by Australian studio Collider and couldn’t help but think that if a signage system can get my pulse up, then I really am a total nerd. But then so be it! Cause this is freakin’ brilliant! I love the matarials and the use of space, light and shadow as designfactors.

If I say there’s a place called “Chocolate Research Facility” what do you say? Dreamjob? Yep, me too! But this is actually a shop/café in Singapore and the Singapore based studio Asylum did the visual identity for it all the way from the shop interior to the packaging. Look how yummy it is!

One more handlettering example today, god I love this one! It is done by Swedish design agency 25ah for Skofabriken, a new conference center in Stockholm (yes, a conference center, eventhough Skofabriken means shoe factory). I LOVE that it’s pitch black, the white runny letters give it such great contrast.

All I can say to this one is WOW!!! Check out this typographic installation by Portugese studio R2. The piece is called “Vai Con Deus” (Go With God) and is made on the facade of a gallery. Brilliant!

I first came across Dan Tobin Smith’s work when I saw his photo on the cover of the Jay-z album. And later I fell totally in love with his Alphabet series which continues along the same lines. I love how it is spatially built up and that each one is from a different angle. Be sure to check out all the photos to see how the A is cleverly thought out horizontally and vertically.

I’ve mentioned Groovisions before but I simply must feature them again. They’re a Japanese agency and they do such wonderful work. They are behind the visual identity of two of my fave havens in Tokyo, places to take a bit of a time out. I’m talking about Cinagro and the 100% Chocolate Cafe. Last mentioned is double good as another of my fave agencies, Wonderwall, did the interior which is to die for.

See more of Groovisions’ work:

PS. If you ever get a chance to taste the 100% Chocolate hot chocolate you will think you have died and gone to heaven. It’s seriously worth going to Tokyo for in itself.

Interior from the temporary Isetan shop done by Wonderwall.
