Here is another small design stu­dio based out of Lon­don, that’s pro­duc­ing amaz­ing work. Socio’s work is sim­ply stun­ning. Not a sin­gle piece is sub­par, and the level of detail that went into every project is astonishing.

This is the kind of work that you look at and makes you think “man, I suck!”. It def­i­nitely made me feel that way, dammit! But that’s a good thing. I think every once in awhile we all need some­one or some­thing to let us think that we suck. It motivates.

Unit Edi­tions just announced a new book titled Man­u­als 1 Design & Iden­tity Guide­lines. It’s a study of cor­po­rate iden­tity design man­u­als from the 1960s to early 1980s. The book includes man­u­als cre­ated for NASA, Lufthansa, British Steel, NYC Tran­sit Author­ity, Cana­dian Broad­cast­ing Cor­po­ra­tion, ABC, and more. The ABC man­ual is from my col­lec­tion that I’ve contributed.

I’ve been really look­ing for­ward to this book. Man­u­als are such a great learn­ing resources because they’re not only great to look at, but they also give you insight into the ratio­nale and think­ing behind each sys­tem. You get to expe­ri­ence what the design­ers were thinking.

The fore­word was writ­ten by Mas­simo Vignelli and the book includes text from Adrian Shaugh­nessy, NASA designer Richard Danne, Greg D’Onofrio and Patri­cia Belen of Dis­play, Armin Vit, Sean Perkins and John Lloyd.

Avail­able in March and you can pre-order now.

I really like this self-identity designed by South African designer Wanda Priem. What really grasps my atten­tion is the schematic-like feel of the entire sys­tem, which is all based on prime num­bers. Head here for more images and the con­cept behind the identity.

Won­der­ful new iden­tity and event graph­ics for Plat­form by Eddie Opara’s team at Pen­ta­gram. Love the use of the black line as a wayfind­ing system.

Open is a bike com­pany that devel­ops high-end moun­tain bikes, who’s guid­ing prin­ci­ple is “Relent­less Sim­plic­ity”. They stick to this is in every aspect of the com­pany, from prod­uct line-up all to way to the indus­trial and graphic design of their frames. These have to be some of the most beau­ti­ful bikes I’ve ever seen. Not only are they made out of car­bon, and weight almost noth­ing, they sport a stream­lined frame design, and a very min­i­mal graph­ics. Some­thing that is almost never seen in the cycling com­mu­nity. Most brands slap their logos all over their bikes, but Open has shown great restraint, and it has paid off.

Beau­ti­ful.

Exper­i­men­tal Jet­set recently launched a new web­site with a ton of amaz­ing new work. One of the projects that stands out for me is the iden­tity work they did for the Whit­ney Museum of Amer­i­can Art in NYC. EJ devel­oped the graphic iden­tity, and Whitney’s in-house design team used the sys­tem to design all the pieces.

I’m going to have to visit the museum and grab as much printed stuff as I can. Looks stunning.
