The current five ▾
- An impressive instrument:
The People Powered Press is the world's largest letterpress printing press! Created by JKN OilTools, run by Leeds-based studio Split, and used by community members for all kinds of fun stuff.
- A superb series:
Gratitude, Money, and Body Image are just a few of the issues that have been covered, so far, with well-designed and well-written publications in this collection called A Kids Book About.
- A delightful design:
Kelli Anderson, Meg Lewis, Hayelin Choi, and Frank Chimero each had a hand in the Dropmark redesign. It looks fantastic, and the absolute best detail is the animated double-clicking cursor-nosed smiley face on the homepage.
- A sort-of stencil:
The designers of Caserne, from Montreal, came up with this really interesting logotype for French studio Saison. Instead of a baseline they created a nice horizontal break towards the top of each letter, and it totally works.
- An artful aesthetic:
You've maybe seen the work of artist and illustrator Luis Fitch at La Doña brewery in Minneapolis, or pasted to an electrical box around town. His ideas are cool, his goals are straightforward, and his work rules. Check it out.
