Element One

element one

Element One is a Polish design studio specializing in identity and publication design. Their work is crisp and to the point.

I’m a big fan of their editorial work; the use of scale along with type and image is fascinating. Nothing feels untouched. They can make things loud and bold but delicate at the same time.

Also, they publish FUTU, a rad design magazine. Each issue is art directed by a different studio. (Like the one Studio 8 art directed.) Not to be missed.

Sophie Alda

Sophie Alda
A friend turned me onto London based illustrator Sophie Alda’s work, and I immediately fell in love. The content of her work is so strange and exciting, especially when she juxtaposes architectural buildings with unusual figures. Her use of muted tints and shades of color are a nice touch, as well as the various abstract forms she creates. Definitely be on the lookout for this gal!

Bandito Design Co.

bandito design co

Bandito Design Co. is the home of designer/illustrator extraordinaire Ryan Brinkerhoff. Ryan has his hands firmly entrenched in the exciting gig-poster, screenprinting, music-meets-design scene. He also possesses some fancy hand lettering skills. Skim through his work: it’s hard not to like. I really love his color palettes, and the mileage he can get from using such a small number of colors.

Check out his shop if you’re looking to add some brightness to your home.

For fans of brutalist architecture, feast your eyes on this beautiful slice of Brasilian modernism conceived by architect João Filgueiras Lima. The Edifício Morro Vermelho complex, aka “Red Hill” housing. features a series of swiveling bright orange fiberglass panels that are not only pleasing to the eyes but also act as a functional shading device.
