It will be now under the mrcup-studio.com name as after working freelance for years, I am now in a real studio with Jef working with me. He designs this website and I thanks him for that, I guess it is important to have a new eye on your own work !

The Science of Creativity - Graphic Design

Oyyo. Woos (2010) by PetPunk from Lithuania. Am back from the UK, and here is Japan's Myoshka. The unofficial poster of this track. We're Open is a fantastic graphic design and advertising studio from Stepney, Australia. Good work by Postmammal. Hans Hartmann (1913 – 1991) is one of the less known icons of Swiss graphic design. Nicolas Zentner is a great Swiss graphic designer. Otl Aicher (May 13, 1922 – September 1, 1991), was one of the leading German graphic designers of the 20th century.

Check out the work of Italian superman Matteo Cibic. Have you seen the new identity of United Colors of Benetton? The new "face lift" by Pentagon's Michael Bierut and Daniel Weil is so subtle that one has to question why it has been done in the first place (and why anybody would spend money on this). But, it shows as well that the identity developed in the 80's is pretty much timeless... and at least it wasn't ruined by the redesign. Via Piero. Visuelle.co.uk.

FormFiftyFive – Design inspiration from around the world. Articles. We Love Magazines. Another Escape launched earlier this year and number two has just been published.

We Love Magazines

Like last time, it’s divided into four distinct sections – Inspiration, Exploration, Process and Response – and uses these to deal with different aspects of the extraordinary in the ordinary. Octopuses, rehabilitating old machines, beekeeping and the revival of the tango all make appearances as editors Rachel and Jody spread their net wide. A personal highlight is this story about coffee preparation (below). Another Escape is a very gentle, quiet magazine that deserves your attention. Environmental Graffiti. The Exile of Satan from Heavy Metal Design. — Those “heavy metal” bands that debuted during that first palmy MTV generation sound like nontoxic pop compared to today’s vast offerings of subaltern metal genres, where intricate is the new heavy, and glacially slow is far more radical than hyperfast.

The Exile of Satan from Heavy Metal Design

Metal has evolved in such diverse directions—drawing from and crossing over with punk, math rock, noise, and avant-garde musical threads—that perhaps the real surprise is how audiences who never thought of themselves as metalheads are now exploring bands with names like Baroness, Gojira, Isis, and SUNN O))). Detail from the 2009 Isis album Wavering Radiant Heavy metal has evolved visually as well. Gone are the fantasy illustrations of radioactive zombies and band logos composed of overlapping swords. After a generation of sprouting subgenres, the heavy metal field is littered with a diversity of styles that even the most hardy metalhead will have trouble encompassing. The band logo has always been the nexus of identity for metal bands.
