I’ve been a big fan of Andrew Kolb for awhile now. His wonderful illustration work has just the right amount of retro flare mixed with pop culture. It is surprising and lovely—full of humor and graphic eye candy. Be sure to check out his portfolio and blog—he’s also a great follow in Pinterest.
Over the last couple months we’ve had the pleasure to work with Zeus Jones on a number of projects for Purina One. We’ve always been a huge fan of this Minneapolis agency and so when we were back in town we thought it would be nice to drop by, say “Hi” and check out their office. It’s a great space on Lyndale with a large collective table running down the middle. It feels very collaborative and cool. Their work is just as fun, especially all their packaging for Thymes—full of texture and color. To see more of their work be sure to check out their site here.
I am still baffled that I never wrote about Javier Garcia while actually in San Francisco. Well better late than never—especially for such an awesome illustrator and designer (and all around nice guy). Javier’s style is graphic with strong vintage influences, yet it always feels like his own take on it. I particularly love his fictitious record covers—geometric and playful—there’s no doubt that you would snatch these up had you come across them at an antique or thrift store. To check out more of his work be sure to visit his site. Enjoy!
Earlier this summer we had the great pleasure of meeting the Lost Type crew during their Field Trip SF, where they went letter hunting in San Francisco’s Mission district. In the end, producing their first installment of Mission Script, designed by James T. Edmondson. While they were here, another Lost Type masterpiece was also in the making. Let me introduce to you DUDE by Daniel Gneiding. Dude is a robust slab serif with a remarkable twelve different styles—pretty unreal! We were definitely honored to play a part, contributing a spread to the Dude Type Specimen Book. Great job Daniel and everyone who contributed to the book.
