/ What's new in the design digital culture

Printed affair

designlsc. is a modern design studio specialising in producing visual identities for design-led clients. They have a profound and evident passion as well as extensive experience of print production.

Elegant and edgy. Traditional and modernised. Design history and style.

Following featured projects show so.

For Office Use Only

For Office Use Only is a graphic and interactive design studio hailing from NYC. First discovered their work back in 2004 – we are 10 years later – they are steady holding pace.

Vast difference? More experience and expertise warranted garnering high-end cultural mostly entities and projects.

They are good. Very very good.

Outstanding projects

Presenting two outstanding projects by Josep Puy – a Barcelona-based (I LOVE BCN – missing tapas + cava) graphic designer, specializing in editorial and branding.


Creation and branding design for Beige, dedicated to personal hygiene nature-based products and aromas of plants, trees and other natural elements for body care.

Who would have thought of using a ‘front-slash’ as replacement for the ‘i’ letter. LOVE it! The line palette is unequivocally ‘beige’ – tone friendly for everyone – no matter their cultural roots. Smart!


The Studio is a new TV channel that offers programs based on contempory art and all fields of design.

Love the use of whiter shades of pale – in this instance baby blue and powder pink. The logo deconstructed typography is gorgeous.

Graphic design sitting nicely at the shore of edgy yet not too so. And what about the beer wraps! Subtle.


Love Type? Oh yes. Yes. And yes. So he. Typeaholic?? Oh yes. Yes. And yes.

Sweet branding suite and print collaterals circa? Guessing these were part of either his ‘student years’ or ‘early career’ portfolio.

Angus MacPherson is now a resident creative at Human After All.

126 Logos

Can you tell he’s busy? Can you tell he’s prolific? Can you tell he’s talentend? 126 logos retrospective poster by Mark Bloom aka MashCreative designed between 1998 and 2014?!?!

This is their shop!

Cover master

Rodrigo Corral studio creates conceptual design and art for prints, brands, interior spaces and film. New website just relaunched. Have a lookee.

He has created some of the most iconic visuals in publishing.

He is a master at cover design and some of his book and magazine covers are iconic.


Sensitive topics PRINT magazine cover. Too bad the ‘glass ceiling’ syndrome is in the mix.

A type of Show #1

Strikingly creative typographic treatments.

Typography is no longer master of words destined for print or screen only. Recalibrated itself sorta speaking + was elevated to standalone media status by all walks of creatives – they use it to render a kaleidoscope of visual projects.
