  • The Geometry Clock - A Different Perspective of Time

    / Comments (0)

    The Geometry Clock puts time into a new perspective. It's dead simple interface features nothing more than a colored triangle set against a jet black base. As the viewer becomes accustomed to the direction of the triangle, telling time becomes easier. The clock is the work of industrial designer, Mauricio Romano. Romano suffers from synesthesia, a neurological disorder that impairs the cognitive pathways producing a wide array of altered visual stimuli. Many people who live with this disorder see color changes in normal objects. Mauricio sees shapes in everyday environments. This is what led him to create the geometry clock with it's simple, shape-based interface.

  • The Beauty of the Hand Drawn Letter

    If you've followed our writing here for any length of time then you know what huge fans we are of hand drawn type and lettering. The skill, patience and raw creative talent that goes into a well crafted set of hand drawn glyphs has to be one of our favorite things to look at.

    Polish designer, Mateusz Witczak, blew us away with his hand lettering style. The amount of time that he puts into just one piece must be phenomenal. The smooth strokes used to construct each glyph and the attention to fine detail is beautifully executed. Take some time to check out more of Mateusz's work. It's extremely inspirational and would serve as a model reference piece for your own hand drawn type projects.

  • OMFGCO x Stumptown Coffee Roasters

    / Comments (0)

    We recently featured some of the fantastic work that OMFGCO had completed for Portland Meadows. We apparently couldn't get enough, so we're back with another compelling project from the well known Portland design studio. This particular bit of work comes to us through time warp as it was completed back in 2009, but we've been big fans of the Stumptown Coffee Roasters branding work for quite awhile. The project was pretty extensive and encompassed not only the bags, mugs and coasters but extended to additional artifacts like postcards, t-shirts and even plaques.
