Giovanni Pintori

These amazing adverts were created by Giovanni Pintori (1912-1999). An Italian painter and designer who in 1930 won one of two scholarships of Consorzio dell'Economia Corporativa and began to study at the ISIA in Monza. In 1936 after graduating he got offered a job working within Olivetti's advertising department in Ivrea. In 1940 he became manager of the department and in 1950 he received the Golden Palm of the Italian Federation of Advertising, the first of many design and advertising awards. In 1952 after many years of creating impressive work for Olivetti, MoMA in New York organized the exhibition Olivetti: Design in Industry, which featured much of his work. Giovanni continued to design over next decade and to win many more awards. In his later years he devoted his time to painting until his death in 1999. For more of his great work have a look at the MoMA collection.


Motif Wine

If Motif's wine tastes as good as their bottles look then your palate is in for a wonderful treat. These fantastic colourful geometric wine labels were designed by Kristina Bartosova of multi-displined design agency EN GARDE. Their website is well worth a look as they have some visually stunning work.


Japan Society

Love this minimalist identity by New York design student Jessi Tsai. Japan Society is the leading U.S. organization committed to deepening mutual understanding between the United States and Japan in a global context. The architecture and the staircase inside of the building, located at 47th street and 1st avenue in New York City has been the inspiration for the logo and graphic language.
