The Creative Method, an Australian design studio, branded this taco shop to perfection. Guzman Y Gomez was given a typographic, almost newspaper-like, twist with their new identity and packaging. Of course I love the white/black/yellow combination, but the way that TCM blended the retro typography with the sort of kitschy-taco-hut type takes it to a whole other level.
In Brooklyn this past February a group of local creatives set up a gallery around the concept “Bad Words” and had the artists create pieces based on what that concept meant to each individual. The outcome (The Bad Words Experiment) is spectacular. I wish I had been in NY to see it in person! I love the look they created for the event and the invitation/poster suite is so solid. Brilliant work by Juan Carlos Pagan, Cindy Rodriguez, and Gaius Benbow
I was pulled aside once in a Forever 21, after trying on several dresses for an upcoming event and deciding on this one. The woman told me, nicely, that grey was just not my color. Since then I have not given up grey, though I do wear it sparingly, but I think about her every time I look in my closet in the color-coded grey section.
