Vanessa Beecroft

These posters / invites were created by Experimental Jetset back in 2007/8 yet they would not look out of place alongside the great Swiss designers of the 50s/60s. Experimental Jetset, are a small, independent graphic design studio based in Amsterdam, made up of Marieke Stolk, Danny van den Dungen and Erwin Brinkers. These posters were created for performance artist Vanessa Beecroft and are all based on simple ideas but are executed perfectly. For a full description of the these posters and other great print work visit the archive section on their website.


NYC Transit Authority Graphics Standards Manual

Imagine finding a set of brand guidelines designed by the great Massimo Vignelli. Apparently this first edition designed in 1970 for Unimark was discovered in a locker under some gym clothes! The manual has been kindly made available by the collective efforts of Niko Skourtis, Jesse Reed, Hamish Smyth. To view the full set of guidelines and why wouldn't you?! headover to standardsmanual.com Thanks for sharing guys.


The Private Space

Loving this minimalist identity by Lo Siento for an exhibition gallery in Barcelona, Spain. The identity is based upon the abstract shape, representing space that has been taken from the form the typography created from the gallery name – The Private Space. The 400sq metres acts a meeting point for all lovers of the arts. 


Mega Design

With a name like Mega Design you are immediately expecting something beyond good – fortunately this design consultancy based in Copenhagen in Denmark doesn't disappoint. With a plethora of good work that would easily fit into the themes of this site I have settled for the identity and packaging work that they have created for Skærtoft Mølle. The company is a small organic mill that mill their flour traditionally on a stone grinder. The reasons for respecting the craft of yesteryear is not one of romanticism, but purely it is the best method for producing the closest natural product possible. By milling in this way the grain retains every nutrient. Thus, it was natural for the identity and packaging to follow the natural, pure, stripped back craft of the mill. Great work.
