Scottish Design Awards Nominations Exhibition

12_oh-eightposterI was through in Glasgow at this exhibition last night. My favourite piece was the only nomination in the poster category for Telford College’s Student photography exhibition, created by Glenn Garriock. Such  clever but simple idea really well executed – I wish I’d thought of it!

It’s a shame the graphics section of the exhibition was in a space with such poor lighting – it was really hard to get a proper look at the stuff on display without straining your eyes!

The portfolio of Swiss designers Julien Notter and Sebsatien Vigne. Full of clean and contemporary typographic work, the timeless design approach is sometimes reminiscent of Penguin book overs from the 70s.
