Limited Edition Method: Orla Kiely I am in lust with this limited edition Orla Kiely collection by Method. What a great collaboration between two beautiful brands. "Described by The Guardian as “the queen of prints,” Orla Kiely’s bold graphic patterns adorn her ready-to-wear clothing collections, house wares, furnishings, perfume and accessories. And now, you can also find them on a limited edition collection of method® hand wash, dish soap and all-purpose cleaner. our first collaboration with the Irish fashion designer combines her signature patterns with our iconic designs and fragrances. The relationship was a natural fit given our mutual love of color, patterns and design. like Orla, we believe that “color is an incredibly powerful element in design, as it is in life.”

How To Pair Fonts Like A Pro Script or cursive fonts are fairly obvious. You can easily identify this category when you see type that is created from handwriting and has strokes that are varied and fluid. I typically recommend choosing no more than 3 fonts per project. If you go overboard with different fonts, your final product can end up a jumbled mess. Since nobody wants that, try to keep your font selection to a minimum of 3 different fonts.

Milan 2015: SaloneSatellite Favorites The SaloneSatellite was created in 1998 to bring the most promising young designers from all over the world together with the most important business people and talent scouts gathered in Milan to visit or exhibit at the Salone. 700 emerging designers under the age of 35 took part in the 18th edition of SaloneSatellite, the theme of which was “Life Planet”, resulting in some really interesting work. Many designers took the opportunity to investigate the boundaries between mass produced and hand crafted objects – Meike Harde’s Wooden Aquarell (above) is a coloring technique inspired by the movement of pigments and water, that enables the the mass production of individually unique pieces. The Hoff is a playful, colorful modular sofa system by Bergen-based designers Morten & Jonas, upholstered in collaboration with Kioshi Yamamoto. You can mix and match colours and shapes. I absolutely loved all of Büro Famos‘ work, so it was difficult to chose just one product to feature.

Jelle Martens Jelle Martens is a young image-maker from Gent, Belgium. He creates highly geometric and minimal work, borrowing much inspiration from the roots of his not so ancient ancestors. I really enjoy these simple shape and collage experiments most out of his work. They have a very striking and organic feeling to them, and are like precursors to logotypes. More work is also viewable at his Flickr.

The History of Typography movie by Ben Barrett-Forrest Hundreds of cut-out paper letters tell the history of typefaces in this stop-motion animation by Canadian graphic designer Ben Barrett-Forrest. Starting in the fifteenth century with Johannes Gutenberg's Blackletter font, The History of Typography charts the major innovations in font design up to the present day. Barrett-Forrest explains the variations between early serif fonts such as Caslon and Baskerville and how they evolved into modern sans serif fonts such as Futura and Helvetica. Cutting out and animating the letters took Barrett-Forrest around 140 hours over a period of two months, on top of dozens of hours of research and post-production.

The 20 best tools for online collaboration A team of designers does not always work in the same office; you work in distributed groups, some of you may be working from home, and clients can be based all over the world. This is where collaboration tools come in - they make it easier and faster for designers to get feedback and approve artwork in a professional manner, and they come in all sort of forms, from free Android apps to Chrome extensions.
