Strike

Both my parents have collected matchboxes from their travels, near and far for all my life. Somewhere along the way I started a collection of my own. The design and function matchboxes as an object are usually distinctly separate and usually intend to convey the brand or message of the place they are from first and accomplish the task of creating fire second. Strike is a collection of reimagined matchboxes that come in fun colors and a variety of sizes. Clara von Zweigbergk and Shane Schneck teamed up to design the set for HAY, the Danish product design studio.

The common matchbox is used almost exclusiving for advertising while the intricate red phosphorus pattern along the sides are secondary to the advert. Strike honors the activity of creating a flame.


Oda Haugerud

Print design and printed matter in general seems like a bit of a rarity these days. Especially for those of us who work predominantly in the digital sphere. Despite that the stuff I do find on seems to be very highly refined. The pieces here are by Swedish graphic designer Oda Haugerud and they feature really interesting and unique printing, binding and covering techniques which help to elevate the overall pieces. I definitely have to say my favorite piece is the top image of a series of illustrations entitled Meteorit, which came out of the near impact of a meteorite in Malmö, Sweden this past February.

Autumn Gourds

The fall season is always one of my favorite times of year. Despite the influx of colder weather and the trees shedding their leaves it has a nice feeling to it. I especially love all of the harvest time and autumn vegetables. Christopher Dina has captured some squash and other related fall bounties in the two “Autumn Gourds” prints available in Dina’s shop on Society6.

Pilot & Captain Carry Ons

At this point it seems like every company makes a tote bag either for sale or just as a promo piece. Despite that I am still really loving the foray Pilot & Captain have made into the realm of carry goods. I am yet to see anything by The Heads of State that isn’t beautifully designed. Not dissimilar from their shirts and prints previously released the Carry Ons feature designs reminiscent of vintage luggage tags and the golden age of air travel.


Beer Friday: Beer Press

My mom has always collected things, which included matchbooks, postcards, coasters and a bunch of other far more mundane things. So I definitely inherited an appreciation for a well designed coaster.

This new Kickstarter project launched by Jordan Mummert plans to produce a small line of coasters(6 to begin with) called Beer Press, which features distinct and beautiful letter-pressed designs. The typography and copy on each and every one is really smart and clean with a nice level of intricacy, which highlights the care and quality with which they are printed.

Paper App + Moleskine

I have been a huge fan of the Paper iPad App since it was launched, but now I think I just became an even big fan. They have teamed up with another paper and drawing related favorite of mine. Together Moleskine and Fifty Three will allow you to layout, edit and print custom books directly from your drawings in the Paper App. I have to say that is completely ingenious as is this very cute little promo video they have put together. Checkout a sample book here.

Stack

Every printer I have ever used always has an annoying way of loading paper and also has so many seemingly useless parts and pieces. Mugi Yamamoto‘s Stack design really pairs it back to the bare essentials. The inkjet printer sits right atop the stack of paper and uses gravity to feed the paper.

Minimalist Superhero Postcards

The Cartography of Kitchenware

As far as infographics go this one doesn’t display data in a revolutionary new way or even break down an either wise confusing subject matter. It does however combine two of my greatest interests. Good design and cooking or at least the utensils for cookery. “The Cartography of Kitchenware” by the wonderful folks over at Popchart Lab. The poster shows all or most of the kitchen implements you will realistically ever need and how they are all related to one another.

Beer Friday: Mikkeller Seasonal Beers

Swedish design studio Bedow really pulled together some amazing elements for their label designs for the seasonal line of beers by Mikkeller. Using heat sensitive labels and minimalist graphics and typography they were able to show the transitions that happen during each individual season. Pictured above and below is Autumn. Winter, Spring and Summer are shown after the jump. I have only encounter this sort of interactive or change related label design a few times, but this is by far the best executed.

Giant Garage Sale Newspaper

I have long wanted to design a newspaper from scratch, and when I first saw this project by Kelli Anderson I was immediately infatuated with it. Created for Martha Rosler’s recent Meta Monumental Garage Sale exhibition at MoMA. The paper also features some of Kate Bingaman Burt’s awesome illustrations.

Beer Friday: Landland Poster

Vintage beer cans are a total obsession of mine, and this poster designed by Dan Black of Landland incorporates beautiful illustrations of vintage beer cans and rad hand drawn type. The poster is a 4 color silkscreen print and was designed and printed for a performance by Eric Church at the CMAC Performing Arts Center.


D.D. and Leslie Tillett

Growing up you are never quite aware of the interesting and amazing the people around you. In my case it happened to be Deck and Kathleen Tillett who were carrying on the hugely influential textile design work of D.D. and Leslie Tillett. Kathleen still runs the business today out of an amazing factory overlooking corn fields and meadows, which fade off into the distance. This week an exhibition opens at MCNY entitled The World of D.D. and Leslie Tillett, which documents a great deal of the duo’s work. New York Times published an article entitled When Design Burst From Cloth on the Tilletts the other day as a primer for the upcoming retrospective.


Beer Friday: Brooklyn Larder Posters

Brooklyn Larder in Park Slope is one of my favorite provisions shops in New York City. They carry a great variety of meats, cheeses, beer and other quality grocery items. I recently came across this series of posters they made which highlight each of their different categories of products. Since this is Beer Friday I am featuring their Beer Poster, but check out all the other great posters for sale on their website.

The print is 18″ x 24″ and is printed on White 100lb French paper.

Beer Friday: Repeal Poster

As the nights grow cooler the pale yellow suds are replaced by hearty amber nectars. The bittersweetness of the shift from growing season to harvest season is at once perceptible. Bitter as the temperature slowly creeps downward and sweet as we enjoy the toothsome goodness our gardens and farmer friends have reaped.

This poster was designed as a commemorative marker of 79 years producing great beer for Summit Brewing. Designed by Studio MPLS the heavily type driven design features some great typefaces from our friends over at Lost Type Co-op.
