I’m really enjoy­ing the work of Pol­ish archi­tect and graphic designer Tomasz Bere­zowski. His design work is looks like it come right out of the 60s. Sim­ple, typo­graphic design.

Carl Brett

Carl Brett

Carl Brett was an Irish graphic designer and teacher who worked in Canada since 1954 and helped pio­neer mod­ernism in Canada. He was a found­ing mem­ber of the Soci­ety of Graphic Design­ers of Canada and served as pres­i­dent on two occasions.

Couldn’t find much info on him, and only found this gallery of his work at a small res­o­lu­tion, and some sort video inter­views with him.

NYC based skate­board com­pany 5BORO has released a series of decks that pay homage to VHS tapes from the 80s and 90s. I’m a sucker for this kind of stuff.

Eich­ler Homes was a com­pany, by vision­ary Joseph Eich­ler, that built over 11,000 Mid-Century mod­ern homes in Cal­i­for­nia between 1950 and 1974. Eich­ler was respon­si­ble for bring­ing mod­ern archi­tec­ture to middle-class Amer­i­cans. Eich­ler Homes com­mis­sioned some of the most promi­nent mod­ern archi­tects of the time includ­ing Anshen & Allen, Claude Oak­land & Asso­ciates, Jones & Emmons, A. Quincy Jones, and Raphael Soriano.

The pho­tos above were taken by Dar­ren Bradley and are part of a col­lec­tion of Eich­ler Homes that he’s pho­tographed. Also, be sure to check out his other Flickr collections.

World Cup Stamps 2014

World Cup Stamps

I freakin’ love these World Cup Stamps designed by Por­tuguese stu­dio, Maan. Unfor­tu­nately, it’s just a self-project. I’d buy the entire set if they were for sale. They also design some pack­ag­ing around it, and they put together a Tum­blr to show­case all the stamps.

Fridolin Müller

Fridolin Müller

Fridolin Müller (1926 – 2006) was a Swiss graphic designer, edi­tor, and teacher who stud­ied at The Basel School of Design. He designed the poster pic­tured above in 1963 for the Eidg. Schützen­fest Zürich (Swiss Fed­eral Marks­man Fes­ti­val). One of my favorites. Saw one in per­son once, it’s huge.

You can seem more of his work here, here, and here.

Studio Iknoki

Stu­dio Iknoki is an Italy based design stu­dio by Chris­t­ian Jugo­vac and Francesco Greguol. They’ve done some great work, but I’m nuts for the work they did for “Acqua e Ter­ri­to­rio”, an exhi­bi­tion and the con­fer­ence curated by Lat­i­tude Plat­form. I love this very stripped-down style.

They have more of their work on Behance.

P.A.R is a design stu­dio based in Barcelona made up of Iris Tar­raga & Lucía Cas­tro. I love their work, and their aes­thetic. I really really love the brand­ing work they did for the Insti­tuto Lati­noamer­i­cano de Estu­dios Uni­ver­si­tar­ios a Dis­tan­cia. So perfect.

Leica T

Leica T

Leica T

The Leica T is a new mirror-less cam­era sys­tem which fea­tures a super min­i­mal design, and a body made com­pletely out of a sin­gle block of alu­minum. Aes­thet­i­cally, it’s beau­ti­ful. There are only a few but­tons on the top, and the every­thing else is han­dled through the touch­screen on the back.

The level of engi­neer­ing and crafts­man­ship that goes into mak­ing a Leica T is impres­sive as expected. The way the strap con­nects to the cam­era seems bril­liant, and the body is pol­ished by hand for 45 min­utes. The video above shows the entire 45 minute pol­ish­ing process.

A lot of prod­ucts today don’t offer this kind of crafts­man­ship. Good to see some com­pa­nies that still care.

Naoto Fukasawa: Hiroshima Chair

Here’s a great video of Naoto Fuka­sawa speak­ing about the ele­gant Hiroshima chair that he designed for Maruni. The video also gives a glimpse into the crafts­man­ship that goes into mak­ing the chair.
