The Four Icon Challenge/Kyle Tezak

Kyle Tezak makes these small posters for well-know movies, books, historical events, with just four icons. Incredibly, the icons seem to capture the essence of each…thing…to a tee! (For more on Kyle, click here.) All of Kyle’s work is clean, clear, and no-nonsense. I especially like his logos, so go check them out!

The Bear Cave

The work of this New York based design duo is simply beautiful. I especially love “Last Bummer" Records. Clean lines, geometric repetition, and a nice sense of color and form really brings out the temperament of the firm, which I feel is friendly but hip.

Brooklyn designer Bradley Hughes has really impressed and inspired me with his editorial design sensibilities. I love his mixing of lovely typography and contemporary imagery. Check out more of his portfolio and see my other favorite spread, “How to Do Everything Better.“

Whelp, looks like Starbucks is finally rolling out their new identity. I for one love it…but I’ve heard other remarks to the contrary. 
I especially like the introduction of that lime green on the coffee collar. Combined with a bleed and that nice zoomed-in trademark, very nice!
