Brighten the Corners

Just discovered these posters by London and Stuttgart agency Brighten the Corners. To celebrate their 10th birthday they created 3 posters which including the creme de la creme of client emails from the past 10 years. Some of them had me laughing out loud.

My favourites include:

  • Hello. Attachment?!
  • Any other graphics or general fun that you can think of including would be great.
  • I don’t know what kind of ‘resolution’ is needed for this, but obviously it has to look crisp.
  • Foreword – can you please replace this with something a bit more salesy?

Some of their other projects that I really love include branding and a website for Holy Mountain and a series of posters featuring Italian sayings for the Italian Cultural Institute.

Studio Makgill

Lovely clean print identity work from Studio Makgill. I also love the the GPC Visa Annual Report – how to create something visually stunning on little or no budget. Inspiring stuff.

Emmi Salonen is one of my favourite graphic designers. I have long been an admirer of the clean graphic style that she combines with such clever, but simple (if that makes sense?!) concepts. I particularly love her brochure and document designs.

I can’t believe I haven’t posted anything of hers on here already, so here are a few of my favourite pieces of hers.
