Australian design firm, End of Work, created this wonderful identity for a coal mine called Mangoola. I never imagined that a coal mine could have such beautiful print material. They explain:
Mangoola is a coal mine situated in Australia. “Mangoola” is thought to mean “black cockatoo” in Aboriginal language. The Cockatoo is a native bird to Australia. Using the name’s meaning as inspiration Sydney based studio End of Work created beautiful print pieces to represent the the feathers of a bird and the strata layers of the earth. This was achieved through a large foil blocked pattern, and laser cutting paper. Launch invitations, Commemorative books, brochures, cards and stationery was produced on black Notturno paper stock.
I’m back from a short break and I hope everyone in the US had a great Thanksgiving.
To start the week back up we have this really nice stationery done by FEB Design for themselves.
Here’s a great little project by the talented Craig Oldham. Hand Written Letter Project was started in 2007, and is a collection of hand written letters by some well-regarded designers on their own stationery. Some of the invited designers include Michael Bierut, Steven Heller, Tony Brook, Milton Glaser, and my favorite of the collection, Wim Crouwel.
The collection will be released in a limited edition book that will accompany a traveling exhibition, both of which will be raising funds for the National Literacy Trust.
Great idea and cause.
Sorry for the week long hiatus, folks. I moved and I was without internet for over a week. I almost lost it.
Anyway, here is some great work from Australian agency, Sweet Creative.
