Will this be the only fishing spot left for your grandchildren?

  I found this ad while I was looking through a very old National Geographic magazine and it immediately caught (pun intended) my eye! I think it is very clever and speaks volumes to the viewer about the subject which is fish habitat conservation. Being in black and white, there are no distractions from the…

Wine Packaging

            Trader Joe’s always amazes me with their unique packaging design for everything from snacks to frozen foods.  This morning, I was browsing through items and I came upon the aisle with a wide range of wines.  I immediately noticed this Micheal David “Freakshow” Sauvignon wine by its eye-catching circus…

FOXBLOOD: For babes that wear black.

FOXBLOOD is a clothing company created by Lindsey Hearts for those who have dark tastes and also desire to be comfortable and confident in what they wear. The majority of the clothing items have a minimalist feel which I think is greatly represented by their logo. The logo is shown with a simple font in…

“On Love”

Cover design for On Love by Alain de Botton This book cover design, made for Alain de Botton’s “On Love”, strikes first with vibrant red and second with a typographic layout that almost feels like it will float off the page. I love the simplicity achieved by relatively complex methods of layout design; the composition…

City Life Book Cover

This book cover for “City Life” by Donald Barthelme caught my eye as I sifted through books at my local book shop. The immediate impression it gave me is that of a city that is alive and bustling with life, as the typeface used in the title resembles a 1960’s style of flashy and invigorating…

Smokey Bear Coronavirus

This is a card that I received at a restaurant a few days ago. Along with this they provided bags to put masks in while we ate so that we did not have to put the masks on the table or another unsanitary surface. I really like this design because it takes the very common…

Amazon Packaging

This is an Amazon shipping box, something that has become increasingly more popular in our lives as we move forward. So when a package arrives that isn’t in a plain brown box with a smiley face it draws more attention to the consumer because of the contrast. The design on this box is fully colored…

a world of many worlds…

This particular print is one I got from a book store a couple of years ago. It seems to be an ad from around the 1950s. This ad had a purpose, which was to sell a subscription to this magazine, LIFE. I really love this ad (enough to buy the print) for many reasons. For…

Malina

It would be an understatement to say that I absolutely adore this design. This design is off the Tshirt of my favorite band, Leprous, on an album which is my favorite, sadly, only for it’s visual designs. Whenever I view this design, I am immediately taken by the rigid geometric structure of the environment paired…

Why You Should Judge a Book by Its Cover

I know that the popular phrase “don’t judge a book by its cover” is a sweet idea on how an individual shouldn’t judge the character or quality of writing based on appearance alone, but I argue that everything should be judged on its exterior because it is an indication of what they are really about.…

It’s Now or Never.

THINKING LIFE WILL BE BETTER IN THE FUTURE IS STUPID. I HAVE TO LIVE NOW. I was first drawn to this poster because of its unique choice of typography and its vibrant color. However, when I took a look closer to read the maxim on the poster, I was even more curious about the meaning…

Modern Classical

This design for the album merchandise for the metal band Trivium immediately caught my attention because of the contrast between the style and connotation of the typeface of the word versus the style of the logo above it. The typeface is very obviously reminiscent of Roman stone-chiseled letters, with tall all-capital letters, thin stems, arms,…

Is the Ordinary too ordinary?

The Ordinary is a skincare company that has become very popular over the summer of 2020 through social media outlets like Tiktok and Youtube. It’s growth in popularity can be related to the mandated quarantine as people found themselves at home with an ample amount of time on their hands. But perhaps, one of their…

Protomartyr In Design

The design I chose is this one of a Protomartyr poster. It has always intrigued me and has quite a lot of depth and dimension in the image by using photo montage, photo cropping, and bleeding off the image page, creating an interesting impression to be mesmerized by. Not only this, but the choice of…
