Communal Table by Caroline Hwang

Communal Table is a publication of recipes, illustrations and photographs curated and illustrated by the talented Caroline Hwang and designed by friend of Grain Edit, Joel Speasmaker of Forest. I love the lovely quality of her work, which integrates so well with the casual flowing feeling of this cookbook. I’ve tried out a couple of recipes and they are all quite tasty (the ‘arugula salad’ is awesome). To pick up a copy, you can find it here, bonus points go to the fact that proceeds go to the Farm to School charity!

Telegramme Studio

telegramme studio

Interesting concept behind Telegramme Studio, this fantastic UK-based studio. It started as a collab between two designer/illustrators sending work and things back and forth in the post. Eventually this mutual love for design and mail sprang up a fully-functional studio, which we now enjoy here.

Most striking to me are the gig-posters and typography. They really keep it wonderfully fresh and inventive. I love the loud colors and heavy textures on a lot of the work. And lots of details. I love all the typographic detailing.

Todd Oldham who put together an excellent monograph on Charles Harper and Kiera Coffee recently released an exciting new book chronicling the work of the late Alexander Girard. This 672-page beast published by Ammo covers virtually every aspect of Girard’s distinctive career. As one of the most prolific and versatile mid-20th century designers, Girard’s work spanned many disciplines, including textile design, graphic design, typography, illustration, furniture design, interior design, product design, exhibit design, and architecture.

Anton Pearson

Really cool work coming out of Minneapolis by Anton Pearson, a senior at Minneapolis College of Art. Anton creates work that is especially fresh feeling, with innovative type treatments and painterly techniques. I really love his use of color and most of all, how consistent his portfolio of work is—I’m excited to see where Anton takes his work after he graduates and beyond.

Tony Dispigna

tony dispigna

Tony Dispigna may be a very influential craftsman to today’s “throwback” design connoisseurs without many realizing. In 1969, shortly after graduating from Pratt, Tony joined forces at the legendary Lubalin Smith Carnase. He has worked to produce notable classic typefaces like Lubalin Graph and Serif Gothic. Tony is currently a professor at Pratt and the New York Institute of Technology, and has also taught at SVA. Although much of Tony’s work is based on type, he also has a really good sense for creating wonderful logos, as you will see below.
