ANTI-DESIGN FESTIVAL ///

I was really happy to receive this email about the London Anti-Design Festival. It’s about time someone decided to shake things up a bit and we’re planing on doing our part to help out in any way we can. Read the info below and share with friends, colleagues, collaborators, professors, students, etc., especially those in...
ABDUL BASIT KHAN ///

ABDUL BASIT KHAN ///

Abdul Basit Khan is a graphic designer, currently working in the Department of Architecure at the University of Singapore. There is a wonderful amount of research-based projects in his portfolio.

TRUTH DESIGN ///

Truth Design is a UK design studio/consultancy. They’ve created a great body of work. I especially like the invitation for the Reebok Pump relaunch event, shown above. Milton Glaser recently agreed to design a #4 that the studio will use to create posters in celebration of their 4 year anniversary. I’m jealous.

SUPERMUNDANE ///

Another really great portfolio from the UK. This time the work of design/illustrator Rob Lowe (A.K.A. Supermundane).

ROSE BLAKE ///

Amazingly well-crafted design work coming from Swiss studio Moiré.

I love how their site captures the gorgeous letterforms they’ve created alongside photos of high-end book...

DAN STILES ///

Portland is the new Brooklyn, or something like that. I say this because I can’t stop coming across a ridiculous amount of talented work from designers and artists based there. Dan Stiles is one more to add to the list. Amazing posters? Check. Amazing illustration work? Check. Silkscreened goodness? Check. Dan’s got a lot more...

JIMINIE HA ///

Take a look at Jiminie Ha‘s work, really beautiful stuff there.

PANTONE PLUS SERIES ///

I love Base. I love Pantone colors. I love the Cool Hunting video series. Doesn’t get any better than this. Oh, yeah…and if all else fails throw in some cameos by John Maeda and Tina Roth Eisenberg (Swiss Miss). “To celebrate the release of The Plus Series, the next generation of the classic Pantone Matching...
