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.

I was sent a link to these brilliantly clever posters from Because Studio by Zoe at Conversation Pieces. They have a portfolio full of gorgeous print work. I adore this stationery for Low Winter Sun.
