One of our FFFavourites Pietari Posti has updated his portfolio. Filled with the sort of exquisite illustrations and beautiful colour combinations we have come to expect from the Barcelona based Finnish illustrator.
Perky Bros – Nashville, Tennessee. Established in 1883 & 2009!?
Neue Werkstatt was founded by Moritz Furmann, Peter Kraft and Jochen Maria Weber as a result or their final year project at the Hochschule für Gestaltung Schwäbisch Gmünd in Germany. They now design, manufacture and distribute simply designed, high quality products in close collaboration with local craftsmen and businesses.
The global boutique design studio Mucho updated their portfolio with a new brand & packaging project: Fisix, the sports cosmetics lab.
Fisix was initiated by a group of friends who run marathons together, they had an unmet need for cosmetic products that fit their active lifestyle. Mucho’s efforts started on the naming, the goal was to create a gender-neutral name that reflected a contemporary way of practicing sports. The next phase included a visual system that differentiates each product, the solution was inspired by the representative lines that divide sporting fields.
“By cropping and reinterpreting these lines we created liberating abstract shapes.”
The final result is a fine mix of opposites: the dark and pastel colours on the packaging, the elegant typography on the logo with a very fashionable beauty feel and a geometric sans serif counterpart to balance it and give it an almost clinical look.
This project suits them perfect on their new international approach since their merger with Dowling Duncan. Make sure to follow them on twitter for updates on upcoming projects.
I came across Alec’s work in the alcohol aisle last night — his artwork for London’s Partizan Brewing really stood out among all the other wired and wonderful bottles on display. Luckily his name was proudly printed on the label, so it didn’t take me long to track down his work. I’m a huge fan of his colour choices and fun quirky style.
Here’s hoping the beers are as tasty as the branding. Cheers!
Biggie Smalls is a recently launched agency based in Sydney.
It was launched by Brian Eagle and Nik Bragg, both of whom have considerable experience of working at agencies all over the globe.
The work is a nice mix of brand identity and packaging, which is executed rather nicely indeed.
I’m quite surprised we haven’t covered lg2boutique before now. This French-Canadian studio based in Quebec and Montreal have a sublime portfolio of work. Their branding and identity projects in particular are incredibly rich, unified and expertly executed.

The ridiculously talented folks at Anagrama have an abundance of exciting new work in their portfolio. Pretty much impossible to select only a few images to show you, I suggest you go and check out the rest!
I randomly stumbled across the portfolio of Bedow, an award winning Swedish graphic design studio run by Perniclas Bedow and boy was I glad I did. Working with a wide range of businesses and organizations — many within the cultural sector Bedow has a selection of wonderfully simple, clean, dare I say it Scandinavian style work across a varied range of clients. My particular favourites include the packaging work for Nostalgi – A classic rack system, corporate identity and stationery for Askeroths trappor och räcken — a small Swedish manufacturer specializing in custom built stairs and railings and the stunning packaging work for Mikkelle – A series of seasonal inspired beers with heat sensitive, beautifully illustrated labels. A real joy of a folio which has filled me with inspiration and renewed vigour on a cold winters day. Go warm up.
