STUDIO VON BIRKEN ///

All I can say is I want to work for SvB soooooo bad. Ridiculous. Amazing, Beautiful. They make it look so easy.

COSAS MINIMA ///

Cosas Minima is the work of illustrator and design Blanca Gomez, from Madrid, Spain. I think the thing I love most about Blanca’s work is the fun and carefree nature of some of the characters she illustrates. There is a beautiful sense of balance and minimalism to her work as well.

Even as I first really learned what graphic design was I distinctly remember getting their catalog in the mail; the metallic ink, the throwback logo designs, design parodies of cultural ephemera, it’s all stuck with me. Literally. I’ve kept all the catalogs. As my wife, kids and I...
