Founded

founded

Founded is a Newcastle-based studio specializing in branding, packaging and environmental projects among other things. To me, their strong suit are their branding and identity projects. They do a great job of making subtle references and effectively using restrained typography while still managing to be witty — all within a very clean, minimal style.

Strohl for Lekerlee

strohl design

I have been an avid consumer of this German treat for years, but I can guarantee you that it was never the packaging that drew me in. SF Based Strohl took Lekerlee to the next level by creating packaging that is sleek and modern, a sharp contrast to the traditional gothic type and overly-illustrated german villages that usually adorn the cookies’ container.

Poster Pick: Curtis Jinkins

Curtis Jinkins

Austin, Texas is a hotbed of design talent and Curtis Jinkins is one of our favortites to emerge from the scene. In this week’s poster pick, Curtis pays homage to home state with this bull print. Black and gold are prominently featured, which makes perfect sense given the history of this oil rich land. In the background, a blood red setting sun illuminates the derricks and wind mills that dot the landscape.

This print as well as other works by Curtis are now available at the Poster Cabaret.
