Mucca Design has created a stunning package design for Brooklyn based gourmet store, Brooklyn Fare. The branding features a proprietary typeface by Mucca called Fare Serif that is used everywhere and a 4 color system. Another aspect of the minimalist branding that I love is the edgy, humorous tone of the copy.
A Hello t-shirt was inevitable. The concept works on a shirt and I must say it turned out great. Working with Buddy Carr on this project has been a dream come true and it is great when the client just gets it. Buddy gets it.
Man, I wish I lived in Minneapolis right now. The Minneapolis Institute of Arts has an exhibit titled Swiss Graphic Design: Precision and Presence that features a series of 20 Swiss posters dating from 1950 to 1985. It has been on display since January and I’m bummed that I’m just hearing about it now because it ends this Sunday! It’s good to see that such a great era in design is still being respected and passed along. We need more exhibits like this. I really have to try to curate one here in NYC.
Emmi is a graphic design practice based in London that was established by Emmi Salonen. They focus on environmentally sound solutions for identities, websites, catalogues, books and other printed matter. Their broad portfolio really shows off their attention to detail. Love it. Pictured above is an annual review for the Finnish Institute and uses environmentally friendly papers and printing methods.
