Miss Moss Blog Milk Giveaway #missmossblogmilk

i am so excited about this giveaway because it’s something close to my heart… beautiful blog themes! as a designer (and blogger) i really appreciate a nice theme. many times it influences whether i will visit a site again or not. understandably it’s not always possible for the average person to afford the services of a graphic designer to design their website, and sometimes it’s frustrating to find a theme that doesn’t look like it came pre-packaged with whatever platform you’re using. and that isn’t already used by a million other people.

Oliver Munday

Elizabeth Peyton

i found book cover design to be one of the most challenging tasks when i was studying. we’d see all these brilliant, often very simple, cover designs and think – of course! but getting there is such hard work (as with anything in design, of course). i am so impressed by the work of NY based designer Oliver Munday, whose book covers are so good i would buy them regardless of what the book was about. he has a tumblr too.

Identity Designed

Designed by Michelle Viljoen

have come across some wonderful identity designs lately. please click on the images to be taken to the original designer and more information on their process.

Archist

architect-preview

since it’s a bit of a design slash art history day around here – i dig these clever Archist posters by Italian architect & designer Federico Babina, where he imagines what buildings by 27 famous artists would look like (Architect + Artist – get it!)

A Poster A Day

Alex Proba // A POSTER A DAY

Alex Proba is a German designer, now based in New York, who spends 30 minutes of her day after work designing a poster – A Poster A Day. she has made 250 so far. the poster designs are a combination of manipulated found imagery and designs and patterns that Alex created herself. i love these kind of self-initiated projects that push already busy creative people to flex creative muscles that might otherwise be neglected in a working environment.

No. Six Depot

i will not hesitate to say that i judge my choice of coffee places pretty harshly by their cover – in other words, if i don’t know anything about them or their coffee (or tea, or food, or whatever) then i will make my decision to go there, or not, based solely on their design aesthetic. to me a beautiful representation of your space, product and just general vibe totally mirrors the quality of what you’re providing.

Food Studio

miss-moss-food-studio-004

Food Studio is a Norwegian collective of food professionals, designers and photographers who love, well, food. and natural, Nordic food at that. i first came upon their beautiful design work done by Oslo based studio Bielke + Yang, and then delved a bit into what makes Food Studio tick. they host interesting events, like this one that marries food + music, and set out to challenge the daily way we think about and work with food.
