One of my favorite studios right now is Project Projects. Their work makes up an impressive collection of websites, exhibits, books, identities and environments. Their work is consistently effective in it’s communication and aesthetic. I think that what they do best is focus on the message behind every project, rather than attempting to dress it in some trendy graphics or type. Smart and beautiful, that’s it. Must be why they were named finalists in this year’s National Design Awards by the Cooper-Hewitt.
