T-Star Typeface


Every now and again a condensed typeface comes around that simply knocks my socks off. T-Star by designer Michael Mischler is one of them. Originally designed for the book Los Logos, T-Star is a condensed sans-serif that features 9 weights and some interesting details like the Q. I love how simple and light the face feels overall.

Chocolat Factory Identity System


Here’s an great example of a well designed graphic identity that doesn’t over do it and supports the content. Designed by Ruiz+Company for Spanish chocolate company Chocolat Factory, the identity features a clean sans-serif (which looks like DIN) and a wonderful color palette. Reminds me of the gorgeous identity system for Brooklyn Fare.
