/ What's new in the design digital culture

Kat Teutsch

Kat Teutsch photographic style is like cup to cake and leave to twig. Not overstuffed! Not overlit! Not over staged! Not overdone.

Natural. No less than quietly brilliant. Genuine. Feels ‘real’ and warm.

_______

She is a food, still life and interiors photographer living in New York City. She also shoots a lot of travel/personal projects around the world.

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.

Hello Hel Looks

A unique photo reportage and inside peek into how ordinary people show their street (or not) smart fashion styles: Hel Looks.

_______

Project is part of the Best of the Year roster in 2005.

Factum: One of the project co-founders – Sampo Karjalainen turns out to be co-founder of the Moves app acquired by Facebook in April / 14. Wow!

Paula Scher *

She is not a refiner. She operates on instincts; she gets it the first time or second or never.

She thinks clients like to buy process (time) and are afraid if you get it instantly!

She was told to illustrate with type.

She felt her hands had been cut off when the puter came around.

She thrives for this moment when she knows she has nailed it and lives for it!

Meet Paula Scher from Pentagram.

_______

Her design approach seems to be to stamp as many – and as much big BIG typography as possible.

Her knack at putting odds + odds = eccentric intrinsically beautifully balanced projects.

Her best work are letter driven – not picture driven. But her choice of visuals with off-center cropping and / or duotoning and / or monolithic subjects complete her expansive typography – perfectly.

Visual osmosis. Virtuosity.

_______

Guess it’s easy to understand why one of her books is titled: Make it Bigger! A journey into her three decades of design.

Must read!

Deluxemodern etc.

Christine Tafoya is a self-professed design addict and renamed ‘etiquette‘ by ‘manners‘ to describe her online store Dear Miss Modern Market ethos where you can find exquisite ‘templates’ for special occasions.

_______

I am a grown-up geeky tomboy eye candy seeking editor while she is this buoyant festive stylish stylist for brand and home!

She recently quipped: ‘HTML gives me asthma.’ To which I replied: ‘<a><strong>O2</strong></a>’.

_______

She befits perfectly the description of a Powagirrrl: Women who rock the design scene with more than pink design..

..and Pink is definitely a predominant color with none of the pejoratives.

_______

Deluxemodern design studio tagline: ‘Mixing business with Pretty – Specializing in all things chic and clever.’

LOVE LOVE LOVE!

(He)Art by inaluxe

At inaluxe (tandem made of Kristina Sostarko and Jason Odd) learning never stops since as artists running their own business – is an ever changing thing!

They freelance and work on independent design and writing gigs.

Colorful abstractions to adorn walls.

Authentic Hyperkit

Hyperkit is a design studio and the collaboration between husband-and-wife Tim Balaam and Kate Sclater.

Their main preoccupation is ‘authencity’ and this seems to be conveyed in a simple manner – no extravaganza – communicating their ideas that empower every day life.

Each portfolio pieces renders exactly that.

Steph says hello

Steph Says Hello is the portfolio of Stephanie Baxter, a freelance illustrator living & working in Leeds, West Yorkshire.

Her hand-lettering projects are a joyous overload of pen (digital or not), pencils, chalk and inky goodness with loads of curlicues and capitalized letters.

Typography applied over edibles?

Freshly.

In Question

Rilke is an independent creative studio based in North West London. Established in 2009 by David Davidopoulos and Kate Smith, Rilke set out with a clear mandate: ‘We want to produce work that matters. One fundamental step: we question.’

This is a sweet website – using a one-page storyboard that includes tangible visuals and quirky design elements.

IR = Loves you

Her portfolio is extensive and expansive. The breadth of her creativity is constantly paired to remarkable conceptual ideas with a thang of ubiquity and sweetness – in any and all of the branding suites – packaging what-not she enterprises.

There you go – Snap! What a tagline: A sweety branding studio. That loves you.

_______

No wonder there is so much ‘charmingness’ in her work. Passion. Color. Experience x repeat ad infinitum = Isabela Rodrigues / Porto Alegre, Brazil
