The current five ▾
- A puppet protocol:
It's Nice That tweeted about something great they learned at the AdobeMAX event yesterday: Turns out Elmo and the Cookie Monster have actual brand guidelines! I love that the Elmo Eye Diagram exists.
- A smart solution:
When Host Home needed a logo that reflected their eclectic collection of home furnishings, Studio NinetyOne delivered. Four unique letterforms are used to make a nicely mismatched wordmark that's both flexible and distinct.
- A print project:
California-based Hybrid Design created an issue of the Mohawk Maker Quarterly publication and it's the best. Seems like there's a lot happening in it... but it's bright and playful and probably a total joy to flip through.
- A phenomenal photographer:
The images in photographer Scott Snyder's portfolio are polished and product-focused, but never sterile. His style seems to be colorful, composed, and always charming.
- A terrific typeface:
Oh, dang, have you looked at Simula by Sharp Type? It's lovely; that lowercase "a" in particular.
