This has nothing to do with graphic design but I’m going to reblog it anyway.
This is my dream space, look at those stairs storage!
Love, love, love!
Stockholm based strategic design agency Bold designed this brand identity for MTG Media, an international entertainment broadcasting group. The logo was created from a graph showing TV, radio and online media consumption in a 24-hour period. How I would love to have an envelope like that arrive on my desk!
When I first arrived in Fiji I did a lot of research to get my head around the difference between Australian design (clean, minimalistic) and Fijian design (busy, colourful). Unfortunately my searching didn’t come up with many decent results, save for Bula Coffee.
From the designers’ Behance account:
"We were approached by a non-for-profit organisation that is helping the villages of Fiji to produce and package their coffee for sale. Targeted at the tourism market in Fiji, our brief was to come up with the complete package. Brand name and story, positioning, point of difference, unique look and feel, cultural cues and personality. Our concept "Bula Coffee" came to life with the idea that a real coffee drinker loves their daily brew so much they could almost speak to it!"
I actually came across the coffee in my local foodstore in Suva, and it’s now sitting proudly above my fridge.
Woah! I just discovered Noma Bar, the master of negative space. After trawling through design work and art today this is the first time I’ve sat up in my chair.
Bar has illustrated over sixty magazine covers, published over 550 illustrations and released two books of his work. What a clever, talented individual.
I highly recommend you check out his portfolio.
Reminds me of one of my favourite quotes: “It’s a design thing. The cat is lost in the negative space.”
