As promised, here’s Saturday’s round-up…
BBC gets a refresh — A great look behind the scenes of the UK’s preeminent television station’s re-design. (Maybe not the juiciest of stories, but thorough.)
Patterns! — A great visual system for seeds. Seems so obvious but I don’t think I would’ve thought of it.
Mouse vs Mouse Trap — A great twist on what you’d expect.
Sustainable Design — thomas.matthews gets re-designed in a seriously ecologically friendly — and very attractive — manor.
Topography — A good example of a flexible identity system that doesn’t involve simply masking images.
Peekaboo — Some seriously cool business cards. (And to think all that stuff inside means something.)
AAAAAAAANGRY — Aziz Ansari is not afraid to call out all those who have disappointed him in his co-authored mix tap endeavour.
Corrugated Cardboard? — Seriously, that is some cool lookin’ packaging for cardboard.
GOOD gives you the Top 10 of TED — If GOOD is recommending anything, let alone presentations from TED, you gots’ta check it out.
A cafe with attitude — I know I’ve mentioned this cafe’s packaging before, but there’s a bunch of stuff there I hadn’t seen before that’s as good as the rest. When you get it right, you get it right.
James Cameron in a nutshell (or Venn Diagram) — Sometimes it’s best said simply with a diagram. I laughed out loud a little.
Liechtenstein — A cool branding for a location, albeit sort of bloated with the typical “everything means something, even though it doesn’t look that way” pitch.
Old School — A new typeface with old character.
INDIA/ANAPOLIS — People seem pretty mixed on the ‘A’ split, but I’m with Armin on this one; a nice typographical solution to a widely varied problem.
Fruit with hats — Charming packaging for a line of dried fruit.
There you have it. If you don’t want design related links, you obviously shouldn’t be reading this.
