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


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.

Hassan Massoudy

Considered by some as the “greatest living calligrapher”, the work of Hassan Massoudy is downright beautiful.

“When I think my gesture is just right the interior conflict ceases, even if that sensation only lasts a few minutes. It is a moment of joy when the alphabet is no longer an instrument of logic but an attitude of writing, a pure sensation that can easily come into contact with the poet, who has probably been through the same process. This calligraphy reflects my vision of the world, it has become the desire that the world should be thus, with a new harmony and new freedom.”
- Hassan Massoudy

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

Nakano Design Office

A very small sampling of the incredible work coming from Nakano Design Office to end the work week right.

Curtis Flanagan

I’m a sucker for a nice annual report, and Curtis Flanagan (a fellow UArts alum and designer at Ideas On Purpose) seems to be cranking them out left and right. Pictured above is work for TB Alliance, Moodys, and an IOP holiday poster.

Les Graphiquants

There is simply too much beautiful work coming from Paris studio Les Graphiquants. A lot of the work reminds me of one of my favorites, Philippe Apeloig. The design of their site isĀ  pretty fantastic, too. It’s unfortunate that I can’t read French.


Very nice work from Barcelona’s TwoPoints.Net.
