Moody Tuesday | Pretty Pale Color Palette

NOTE: the images in this feed have been downsized or removed for copyright reasons. To see them in their unmodified state, please view the original post by clicking here.This pretty pale color palette is everything. I’ve never liked neutrals or fall colors, but this nude palette somehow combines both and takes them up a notch into something more sophisticated. A better version of both, if you ask me. I’m so in love with these colors that I created a little workbook with color swatches and web numbers (I even made up names and pulled colors from the images, because that’s my idea of fun). You  can either save for future reference, or pin to go along with the mood board. I designed the … Read More

Fanette Mellier

Brimming with bright hues and bold forms, the work of French designer, Fanette Mellier, is hard to ignore. I’m especially drawn to the identity system she crafted for Frac Aquitaine, an art museum in Bordeaux. At its center is a logo made from a reflected “A”. This emblem resembles the arrows of a compass and guides the viewer’s eye throughout the documents. It is also used to mark gutter folds in brochures, separate paragraphs, and is often superimposed over photos.

Studio Makgill

Studio Makgill crafts beautiful work that is deeply inspired by their clients’ passions. While crafting the identity for the brewery Wiper and True, Makgill noticed the company’s fascination with nature and the biological process of fermentation. This motivated them to create a packaging system that depicts examples of how humans have used nature to their own advantage. The bottles feature illustrations of elephants performing at circuses, hot air balloons floating in the wind, and much more. ——————– Also worth viewing: Shawna X Studio Moss Sindy Ethel Follow us on RSS, Instagram, Pinterest, Wanelo,  ——————– Share on Facebook Thanks to this week’s sponsor: The A’Design Awards – Click here to learn more about the prestigious event and how to register your work.

Perky Bros

Perky Bros crafted a quirky identity system for Forgotten Boardwalk Brewing. Inspired by beachside folklore, the beer’s packaging illustrates legends of pickpocketing magicians, the invention of the funnel cake, and more. Hidden within the imagery are humorous details and cryptic messages that are a joy to discover as you sip the contents of each can. Sitting front and center is the brand’s mascot; a mystifying three-eyed cat that serves as an ode to the notorious feral felines that lived under New Jersey’s piers.

Drawing from Egyptian and Japanese folk art, illustrator Lili des Bellons crafts space-aged versions of ancient beasts and samurai warriors. Set amongst barren landscapes, these haunting portraits are glimpses into the everyday lives of these majestic creatures.
