Brooklyn Fare

Brooklyn Fare

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.

You can see more of this project on the Mucca newsletters as well as the Eat Me Daily blog.


The Principles of Swiss Graphic Design

Blanka Brockmann

This is awesome. I need to get my hands on it.

Designer Dylan Mulvaney has designed this splendid bilingual, expandable book for Blanka. It honors the man, the legend, Josef Müller-Brockmann as well as conveys the principles of Swiss Graphic Design as exemplified by the leader of the revolutionary Swiss Style. Sounds perfect to me. Too bad I don’t see it anywhere on the Blanka site.

I contacted Blanka and they’ve never heard of Dylan Mulvaney nor are they part of this project. Really weird that this guy would claim such a thing.

Swiss Graphic Design: Precision and Presence

Swiss Graphic Design ExhibitImage above by Ryan Nelson.

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.

I apologize for the bad photo, it’s the best I could find, but I did manage to find two Flickr sets of the exhibit. One by Joe Kral and the other by Ryan Nelson. Enjoy.




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.
