  • Penguin Great Food

    May 6th 2011 katie

    These gorgeously ornate book covers for the Penguin Great Food series did the design-blog rounds a few months ago – and rightly so – but I actually picked a few of them up at the weekend – the buy-one-get-one-half-price display at Foyle’s was winking at me… Designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith, the slender, textural volumes are…

  • Pokelondon.com

    February 16th 2011 katie

    A brief segue into my day job, because I want to show off the recently-launched new Poke website, the design of which I was heavily involved in. Designing for yourself can be notoriously difficult, but luckily we had a solid brief with the objectives and rationale clearly set out. No one fundamentally hated the old…

    February 11th 2011 katie

    I always love to see a mash-up of traditional tactile craft skills with modern graphic design stylings, so I’m a whole lot in love with this work from Sydney-based studio Maricor Maricar.

    October 7th 2010 katie

    Time for less about me me me and for some pure visual candy instead: Hilda Grahnat, a Swedish graphic design student, has an amazing eye for colour and composition. Whether she’s working in photography, design or interiors, her styling and taste is impeccable in that idiosyncratically Swedish way. I’m envious of her lovely midcentury-inspired apartment…

    Trust Stephen Fry, ardent technophile and embracer of all things shiny and new, to create a publishing first – an interactive app version of his new book, the autobiographical Fry Chronicles. Designed by the extremely talented Stefanie Posavec and built by Dare it resembles, in Fry’s own words, a colour wheel or a flower. It…

  • Vintage map infographics

    August 19th 2010 katie

    I picked up these gorgeous vintage atlas pages from Spitalfields antiques market this morning. Each page has a map on the front and information about the country on the back.
