Feeling like a Cannonball

when it comes to Lo Siento the design studio always ready for nice branding and good packaging. The small studio always enjoys taking over whole conceptual and identity projects. Situated in Barcelona Spain, the concurence is quite big. So they need to step out with some creative ideas like the cannonball type made with littel metal balls or the green ink drop font on the wall. As they said:”Its main feature is an organic and physical approach to the solutions, resulting in a field where graphic and industrial design dialogue, always searching an alliance with the artisan processes.”

Typo found on Instagram 23

This is our crop of the week on instagram. This great inspirational platform offers a big collection of everything. We love the catched moments by artists, designers and even people who have their eyes open on beautiful things and situations. Especially when it comes to see some creative artworks that will be never released or seen by the public, like the Punk is Dad sign or your’ve changed. If not the artist, who else is making a photo of it and keep it for the next generation? Enjoy them!

For Typography Lovers

Some weeks ago we met Andreas from No-Gallery on the Blickfang design fair in Stuttgart. As we passed his little stand we saw a lot of people there and sometimes you could spot a little word or sentence made of wood and other materials. As we came nearer, we saw the great collection of typography beauties.

The designer couple Elisabeht Rosenkranz and Andreas Burgmann found their brand No-Gallery 2012 in cologne, germany with the inspiration of the furniture fair IMM. In the beginning they used their most favourite words and within time more and more inspirations and expressions out of literature and the daily life. Often people say that these words make them happy. And that is what they try to give - hapiness. They sold over 1000 words to happy customers and sometimes a word can be as light as a wing of a butterfly. With the help of modern machine power they create beautiful artworks and colourize them as you want them to do it.

We really recommend them to you, if you are still looking for an easter egg - this could be your inspiration. Enjoy it!
