Some News—

I’m now a contributor at the long-running art/design blog OkGreat. You can see my posts here. Of course I will still be posting here at Labor&Curse, so don’t fret.


A plethora (yeah, that’s right: PLETHORA) of inspiring work coming out of Barcelona’s Toormix.

Schaffter Sahli

Geneva-based studio Schaffter Sahli has a portfolio full of beautiful cultural institution-focused work.
By relating to the ambitions of our clients and associates the studio is able to achieve a level of design where the form of message and its communicative content intertwine tightly.
I can dig it.


Some solid identity work coming out of Australia’s SouthSouthWest design studio.

Prill Vieceli Cremers

Zurich-based studio Prill Vieceli Cremers have a portfolio full of wonderful poster and book design. There’s a lot to look through, so get to it.


Rumors, a Brooklyn-based studio, cranks out great work for the likes of Verso books (two great examples above from a whole series that uses a “rigid palette of line and type”), Bidoun magazine (see above), and the now defunct ReadyMade magazine. They sure do have good thing going.


From the Netherlands comes Dietwee with a portfolio full of inspiring work.

Conor & David

Based in Dublin, Ireland, Conor & David have a solid portfolio of thoughtful, superbly-executed work. I love the simplicity of the mark they created for the Architecture Tours Ireland.

Peter & Paul

Love this identity by Sheffield-based Peter&Paul for The Architecture Foundation.

I Like Birds

I Like Birds from Hamburg, Germany got in touch recently to point me to their portfolio. I love the playful experimentation they’ve got going on. Great work.

You know how to read—

I’ve been slowly making my way through the I Read Where I Am site, which features essays on the future of reading by the likes of Ellen Lupton, Erik Spiekermann, James Bridle, among many others.

Also of note is The Autonomy Project newspaper, which is an “international collaboration between art/education/research institutes and organisations, practitioners and thinkers… (that) seeks to redefine and redress the issues around autonomy in the fields of art, design, theory and cultural policy today.”

You can download issue #1 here

Interesting posters from Macau-based MO, the studio of Chao Sioleong and Hong Chong Ip.
