If you don’t already know illustrator Christoph Niemann you should. He’s done this fantastic series with Lego about New York. Love it! Kinda Shrigley-ish. You might need to know a bit about New York to get it.

See the full series.

Lokk at this lovely series of packaging for beer company Josefs done by German designer Humberto Gregorio. It’s a lovely way of using the content of the bottle as a focal part of the colourscheme.

Were you ever in need of trashy neo-classic letters but could only find horrible pixelly ones? I’ve been numerous time and now I’ve come across the solution. Check out the work of Mark Kusek from T.26 He’s been collecting woodtype for years and years and has digitized them and put them on DVD’s. They are high HIGH res so you can use them big without it looking shit. There are so many absolutely beautiful ones. Just have a look at these samples.

Today it’s a feature that I don’t do that often, which is spatial design. When it’s done well it’s amazing but I don’t know that many companies who do it, so inputs are welcome. I did however come across Dizel & Sate who do some really cool things.

Today I went to visit wonderful Copenhagen agency e-types with my students. Thanks to my lovely friend Mari for taking time to show us what e-types do so very well. I love their recent identity work for the Danish Radio Concert Hall which is definitely proof of challenging their client.

Another packaging post today. If I say I’m doing a water feature I don’t mean adding a fountain or anything but I do love water bottle design (is that even a term). So here’s the climax of my continous water bottle adventures.


Comme des Garçons

I really do love the perfumes from Comme des Garçons. They are all designed by Marc Atlan a “Franco-American” design (that’s his word). The shapes of the flacons and the simple design is just right for this Japanese (bet you thought it was French) label. Marc Atlan has also done loads of other great beauty packaging for the likes of Dior and Prada.
