So those of you who read the blog regularly will know that i’m a sucker for flat design. So when I spotted that Shapes & Co had created a series of superhero postcards using flat design principles I was all over it.
Logo design is one of the most complex tasks that a graphic designer will ever undertake. It is your duty to translate and interpret the fundamental nature of what a company does, and convey it to the world. If done correctly, your logo will be seen and instantly recognisable to hundred, thousands or even millions of people. it has to also be something that looks good on a large screen, in print, on mobile devices and even possibly merchandise.
I’m a fair believer that less is more. I’m a simplistic soul and simplistic design is something that really inspires and excites me. There’s very little else that can compare to the simplicity of a monochrome logo. Instantly recognisable, invertible, and works on any medium.

Vermont-based design studio Untreed Studios has created a series of typographic posters that was inspired from the popular Disney film ‘The Lion King’.
Each poster features a prominent character from the film, as well as quote made by the character. Very Cute!
Calligraffiti is a combination of calligraphy and graffiti. It is about the art of writing and very often uses Arabic or Japanese characters, sometimes using the Western alphabet in Eastern style. The father of Calligraffiti is Niels Shoe Meulman, who started to experiment with mixing calligraphy with graffiti: traditional handwriting with a metropolitan attitude.
In my day job, I work with a very talented designer called Philip Joyce. He was tasked with a massive undertaking last week. That was to reimagine and redesign the monstrosity that is the Ryanair website. Although the finished product has been admired by many, it has also been pulled apart by the hating few. My question to these people… could you really do any better (in a few days while trying to get all of your other work done simultaneously)? And if you think so… bring it on!
