Teatre CCCB

Hey studio teatre CCCB

Hey Studio in Spain continues to impress me. These communication pieces for Teatre CCCB really caught my attention. At first glance the design seems very simple, but the mix of muted colors, bold black outlines and type really make this pieces stand out.

Nooka Mercury

It’s good to be back. Hope everyone had a great week.

While I was away, lifestyle brand Nooka released this super minimal, ridiculously stylish sunglasses. The shades feature a polymer injected frame, blue lenses with silver mirror finish and are available in 6 fancy colors.

I’m a huge fan of Nooka, and with the Mercury they continue their simple approach in both aesthetic and construction. It’s a great addition to their already excellent lineup. Matt and crew are drinking the good stuff over there.        

Dieter Rams Less and More

“Good design is as little design as possible.”

Damn right. Words to live by.

Dieter Rams is one of the most influential industrial designers of this past century. Jonathan Ive, Senior Vice President of Industrial Design at Apple, is heavily influenced by Rams’ work. You can see huge similarities between Apple and classic Braun products in their simplicity, beauty and function.

From November 18 – March 14, The Design Museum in London is having an exhibition titled “Dieter Rams Less and More“. The exhibition will showcase Rams’ inspiring designs for Braun and Vitsœ. I might have to head to London just to see this.

To satisfy your fix, here’s a short documentary of Rams, a Dieter Rams Flickr group and a Braun Flickr group showcasing the classic Braun designs.
       

Wine In A Can

I love the simple design of this wine can by swedish designers Jens Andersson and Jonas Forsman. I’m not sure how wine would taste from a can, but I’d definitely buy one for its aesthetic value.

Good Graphic Design

I love this business card that Jose Antonio Contreras designed for himself. Simple, fun, interesting and effective. Jose didn’t go wrong with naming his site Good Graphic Design cause that’s exactly what this card is.
