Two Times Elliott

two times elliott

Two Times Elliot is a London-based studio, whose focus centers around print, identity and web. Their style is a mix of typographic elements, clean lines and bold color palettes, bringing each design to life with its own personality. I’m also impressed by their ability to incorporate mixed media into their work without disrupting the flow of the design.

Grace Danico

Grace Danico

Today I’m excited to present our very own Grace Danico. Over the last couple of years, I’ve gotten to know Grace as someone who is very fun-loving, warm and personable. These same qualities are reflected in her illustrations.  With colored pencils and crayons as her guide, her work flourishes within the constraints of the deceptively simple lines and charming doodles.

I especially appreciate her illustrations of food. Her portfolio is adorned with lemons with mustaches, blushing oranges, pizza slides and other characters laced with Grace’s contagious sense of humor. All of these await your perusal here.

For those of you interested in zines, Grace is teaching an upcoming Skillshare class titled Zine and Be Seen: Promoting Your Work Through Self-publication. The course will cover zine history, construction and distribution. In addition each student will create a 12-page zine based on the subject matter of their choice. You can register for the class here.

Loose Leaf, Edition 2

loose leaf manual creative

Loose Leaf is a project by Manual, located here in sunny San Francisco. Caught somewhere in between art publication and curated print series, the format of the project is part of what makes it so enticing. Each edition comes as a series of leaves, hole-punched and ready to install. This allows the user to continually rotate and swap out images.

They’ve also picked some fabulous artists and designers with which to work: Mark Giglio, Jon Boam, Chris Dent. Oh, yeah, NASA contributed an image, as well.

See more here. Check out Manual, too.
