Graphic Design “In the Wild”

I was walking through Target the other day when I noticed this bag that belonged to one of other shoppers. Instantly, I was obsessed with the look of this design and I asked her where she got it! She told me she ordered it from Etsy and that was no surprise to me because Etsy…

Wild Design- AHA

I chose this can of sparkling water because of the different elements of design that I noticed.  First, I noticed the bright colors how the font stood out.  After reading the brand name, my eyes noticed the other, smaller typeface around the can.  I was also drawn to the colors because of the contrast to…

Wild Design

What I love about this image that I post is that the focus of the image feels warm and aesthetic to look at. This is one of the points that attract me. The other point that attracts me is the part where the setting uses neutral colors to bring out the warm, clean, and calm…

Wild Design – The Chameleon

“The Chameleon” is an imposter-in-the-group board game. The box cover has a green-yellow checkerboard that allows for a “disappearing text” optical illusion depending on how you’re looking at it. I love this design largely for the thematic aspect, but also because I think it’s able to stand on its own without knowing the game. When…

Wild Design: Nike

Before I get into my writing I will claim this is my photo and how I know it is, is because I have very boney hands and those are my dad’s legs in the background. Anyways, Nike is well known for having many different designs as they bring on many different athletes and creators to…

Wild Design – Twitter

I always find it intriguing when a logo or app can be noticed without any type of typography. The twitter logo can be noticed from anyone. I love the simplicity of it and the unique shape of the bird that is now fully associated with twitter. I think it is important when designing logos, especially…

Protect the Pack

This poster sits outside my dorm room and is a quick reminder for anyone who sees it to wear a mask. I think this poster is done pretty well for the message it is trying to portray. The red background draws the eye to the poster and catches the viewers attention while also making the…

“ANOTHER Neighborhood Improvement Project”

I took this photo on Rose Ave. in Venice, CA. Rose Ave. is sometimes referred to as “Skid Rose”, as a lot of homeless people have set up camp on the side of Rose, ironically on the street-side of a private golf course fence. You can see the golf course fence behind the fence that…

Wild Design: “Rules” for Teachers and Students

I came across one of these designs as I was scrolling through Pinterest. When I clicked on it, it came up with multiple others that were very similar, and I was immediately drawn to the catchy wording and retro colors. These digital illustrations were made by Caitlin Keegan, who illuminated the 10 rules made by…

Between the World and Me

The opening sequence for Between the World and Me is a work of art, bursting with color, knowledge and history. The use of design and design elements is not scarce throughout, the visual designers took every second and ran with it. As the audience you are able to see the precise use of color, movement through text…

Coca-Cola In The Wild

Coca-Cola is one of the most prominent beverage companies. Their packaging and style has changed quite a bit throughout time. In the photo below, you can see their history of bottles over the years. The bottle I have looks to be a similar shape and size as the 1991 bottle. Personally, I have never enjoyed…

Teddymat

While Karl Gerstner was well known for his work on the magazine Capital, he also did very powerful and influential work in packaging and branding, specifically for Teddymat, a store-brand laundry detergent. Gerstner, Gredinger, and Kutter, the owners of GGK design, were brought in by Coop, a union of Swiss retail chains, in 1964. Their…

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…

Capital Magazine

In 1962, Karl Gerstner was commissioned by Adolf Theobald to design a quarterly magazine titled Capital, that attempted to make economics accessible to the common man while creating a magazine that is appealing to the business sector. The magazine sought to provide a “human view of economics, and an economic view of humanity” (Tochilovsky 1). Gerstner…
