Truth be told, I’m not a huge fan of pies (except pumpkin with homemade whipped cream), but I am a big fan of the branding designed for Emporium Pies by Foundary Collective. I love the color, in particular, but everything about it is pretty fabulous! Thanks to designworklife for sharing.

This evolution of the Alzheimers Australia logo and brand (the old logo is in the upper left corner) that I found over on Brand New struck me this morning. The bold, simple type and strong teal/black color combo are quite effective. The fact that the logo itself can also serve as a number of different taglines is clever, and some of the additional graphics are quite energizing, the fist/heart in particular. It did just occur to me, however, that it’s a bit reminiscent of the Livestrong identity, but better, I think.
I just came across these beautiful typographic “logos” for EF Languages on design work life. I love how the designer, Albin Holmqvist, captures each town’s essence using only typography, fantastic color, and a simple icon. I was so hoping they’d have one for Aspen, but then I realized that there are no language schools in Aspen. Too bad. It would be fun to see how someone else perceives our little town.
I just came across this lovely invitation on one of my favorite blogs, design work life. I love all of the little details and different textures, along with the hand lettering and subtle colors! It’s by a firm called Ice Cream Social. What a nice way to start a life together!
And, by the way, we do invitations, too! I’d love to do something creative and subtly textured like this for someone!
I came across this on one of the design blogs I follow, noisy decent graphics, and I think it’s wonderful advice for a much broader audience than just design students. Some of the points are apropros for excelling in life in general. Check out the full post here. The fun sketchy graphics are a bonus!
We recently wrapped up a really fun project and wanted to share it here on our blog. Weems Westfeldt, a local skiing treasure has been involved in the ski industry for 45 years and we were the lucky design firm that got to bring-to-life the 2nd edition of his instructional skiing book aptly named Brilliant Skiing, Every Day. The book is now in stock and for sale on Weems’ website. It’s garnering rave reviews from industry experts and we wish him the best of luck with it.
Despite the fact that I gave a big cheer when my husband’s bike-racing season officially wrapped up last night (with him on top of the podium – yay Joel!), I had to smile when I saw these posters on the HOW Blog this morning. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge cycling fan, but supporting a spouse’s racing gets old after 20 weeks. With that said, I love the colors (most of them anyway) and simple graphic combined with clean typography. Between all of that and the Mario Cipollini quote, I’m sold! Apparently, you can buy them here.
