TGIF for sure as we head into a much needed holiday weekend around here. It seems like the week leading up to a long weekend is always hectic. Deadlines get moved up and everyone’s trying to fit Monday’s workload in before they cut out early. For those that find themselves with a few minutes of downtime this weekend, here’s a recap of our weekly faves.
So everyone’s favorite search engine has sparked quite the debate among the design community. Check out what designers on both sides have to say about Google’s logo redesign.
Speaking of Google, we L O V E Google Canada’s medium of choice for their New Prime Time campaign targeting media buyers and creative directors. Apparently we’re not the only ones impressed by this – the campaign was awarded gold in the Graphis Design Annual 2016.
While we’ll be enjoying the last good weekend for al fresco dining in Cleveland, we’re on the hunt for a crisp & clean wine. This rosé pairs its contents with a copper foil label for stunning results. Packaging this good has got to be tasty. #cheers
How do you follow up a massively successful kickstarter campaign? If you’re Jessie Reed & Hamish Smyth, the creatives behind the wildly popular NYCTA Graphics Standards Manual reissue, you reach for the stars. In this case it’s with the reissue of NASA’s 1975 Graphics Standards Manual. While there’s a month left in the campaign, they reached their goal on day 1.
When you just can’t decide. You like the look and feel of uncoated paper but need the printability of coated sheet. There’s a paper for that.
What could be better than food trucks and grilled cheese? In the case of Morris, their brand identity looks pretty delish. Mmmm cheese.
We mentioned things were hectic here in the sample studio this week, this little black box might have something to do with it 😉 #sneakpeek
Have you ever wanted to tour a paper mill? These abstract hand-cut paper illustrations are a pretty accurate portrayal of the 140 year old French Paper mill in Niles, Michigan. The only thing that’s missing is the sweet smell of sulphur.
Luxe like a box set and pretty enough to steal, this silkscreened and letterpressed wedding invitation suite sets the tone for a perfect pirate party.
How could we not SHARE this fab blind emboss/deboss combo?
