Guest Toiletries: Free Printable Labels

on August 24th, 2012

Another free label post to help you with your guest toiletry organisation – my latest obsession, I’m afraid. I’ve been obsession over the jars to put them in, what type of toothbrushes to buy (decided for bamboo, but they aren’t in these photos as they haven’t been delivered yet) and whether to buy bath robes […]

Angelina Jolie, Louis Vuitton and Annie Leibovitz: Fail.

on July 14th, 2011

If you read this blog before you’ll know I’m a fan of Annie Leibovitz. I also happen to love Angelina Jolie for a whole lot of reasons. I’m not into the whole Louis Vuitton “brand yourself as middle class by hanging a bag that spells its label on your shoulder” kind of thing, but that’s […]

Kitsch and Cool Restaurant Branding

on July 6th, 2011

Lactobar Retro-Bistro is a new and very popular restaurant in Oradea, Romania (Lactobar means milk bar, in Romanian). Obviously, the drink of choice is not milk, but bear, however what’s interesting about this joint is the outlandish, crazy, cool and perfectly kitsch decor. From an old Romanian car embedded into the wall to doilies, old […]

Circular logos: fascination and inspiration

on April 20th, 2011

It seems to me, of late, that everyone is attracted to circular logos more than any other type. I have started avoiding providing a circular option – unless I am very happy with it, for fear my clients will choose that over stronger, non-circular concepts. And yet what is it about circular logos that attracts […]

Been to the State Library of NSW today, doing some research for a new logo project (for a sumptuous Greek Kalamata olive oil, watch this space!) and came across some lovely pottery images, not the ones one can usually find online but some more obscure and quite unusual ones.

on March 16th, 2011

Logo Design Love: L’Usine Gourmande

on February 3rd, 2011

Found on Behance recently; not sure whether it’s the orange (new fave colour of mine), the letterpress feel of the stationery or the fresh take on the retro craze that has swept the design world for the past year, but whatever it is, I love L’Usine Gourmande.

Copyright saga: a bad western movie, and I’m the bad guy

on January 5th, 2011

(UPDATED 14.02.2011) I think this needs documentation, since it is an issue that concerns all designers out there, or at least all the designers who put their work on Brandstack, Dribbble, Logopond and so on. We all do so with a certain understanding of the risks we run, the most important being our work being […]
