Earlier this week I posted about The Company You Keep, one of the (many) design studios in Melbourne that gets my heart racing. Sweet Greek is a recent project from another of my favourite Melbourne studios – Studio Brave. I am seriously crushing on this identity. That deep, Greek blue, those stamped business cards – plus my mouth starts to water when I think of what delicacies might be hidden in that lovely white box! Perhaps my next holiday should be to the Greek islands?
I can imagine that as a kid Florent Tanet would’ve been the one at the end of the table building forts with his peas. I’m glad that even as an adult he hasn’t stopped playing with his veggies, because his collection of images (entitled La Grande Epicerie de Paris, or The Great Grocery of Paris) are just lovely.
A new favourite studio from Melbourne with a rad name and incredibly spiffy work. The Company You Keep makes identity work seem just so easy. The use of colour is spot-on, and that typography – man oh man, I would love to create work as beautiful as this.
In 2012 I promised myself that I would do more things that scared me, and to take a trip overseas – even if I couldn’t find anyone who would go with me. In the end I managed to kill two birds with one stone. The thought of travelling alone overseas terrified me. But there was nothing to be afraid of. My month alone traversing five countries and three different languages was indescribably wonderful.
Last year’s resolution worked out so well for me, is it cheating to make the same promises for 2013?
