I am very excited to announce a Collate Giveaway courtesy of the kind folk over at StudioSmall. To coincide with the release of their limited edition book that celebrates ’Ten Years with Margaret Howell and Eric Gill’ they have very generously put up 20 copies of these beautiful books as part of a Collate Giveaway.
For your chance to bag a copy for you and a friend all you have to do is head over to Studiosmall's Instagram page here and leave a comment on their competition image tagging your friend. They will then pick 10 winners at random from the comments section.
The Competition closes on Friday 5th February 2016. Good luck!
Some recent work from Experimental Jetset with brand identity for Mash Holdings, a Tokyo-based company, consisting of several fashion labels, health food restaurants, and organic make-up stores. Read more about the project and watch the brand animation here.
'The graphic identity we eventually developed for Mash was partly inspired by Metabolism, the Japanese architectural movement. In short, we came up with a graphic system consisting of arrows – arrows that were organized in several patterns. To us, these patterns represented some of the themes that were also widespread in Metabolist architecture – themes such as (organic) growth, modularity, movement and structuralism. In the specific context of this project, these patterns also refer to the idea that all different parts of Mash are connected to one underlying structure. And no matter how conflicting or contrasting these separate particles appear to be – in the end they are still part of the same fabric.'
'Project managers, account handlers and producers are the unsung heroes of the creative industries, working away behind the scenes making projects happen all the way from pre-pitch to post-delivery. Behind the Design is an accessible and engaging look at these roles which will appeal to those who work in them, those who work with them and those who have an interest in how creative work is commissioned and made.
We’ve brought together insights from top international design agencies such as Moving Brands, Wolff Olins, dn&co, 4Creative, Made Thought, DesignStudio and Hüman After All. These have shaped in-depth examinations of how creatives and project managers work together, and how creativity can be nurtured and protected within the often stressful constraints of budgets and time.'
Hon Jiun Wong over at Monocle magazine has been in touch with news of their recent short they created filming three unique gin distilleries in London, Hamburg and Finland.
'Just like craft breweries, small local distilleries are reinventing drinks that have fallen out of fashion. Monocle films visits three entrepreneurs who have uncorked the potential of the old spirit in London, Hamburg and the Finnish countryside.'
