Anthony Neil Dart is a skilled and self-taught South African designer whose work goes from graphic design and illustration to movie and music production. In his beautiful works I found a surprising balance between typographical elements, photography, digital painting and illustration. Staring at those graphic compositions gives you the same feeling as if you were listening to good music. Last year he expressed himself like this, interviewed by Tara Hornor, questioned about creativity: “I think what inspires creative people manifests itself in their work — the artifacts and shrapnel of all that is digested and then poured out for the viewer to discover, little codes and secret languages.” (from Thinkdesignblog).

Diamonds is a typefamily designed by Hannes von Döhren. He describes it as “a straight and clear typeface…away from the path of classic and well learned letter shapes“. It’s equipped with all the glyphs for professional typography and a plus of arrows and geometrical forms. I like the modern treatment of the classic sans typo. I find it suitable in particular for fashion projects and logotypes. The trailer made for the launch of the font is also worthy of attention for the possible typografical treatments that it allows as much in posters as in movie design.

How to make honey desirable and attractive for kids? Ah&Oh Studio found an interesting and simple solution: they turned a simple jar in a delightful character with very little interventions on the graphic and structure of the pack, just few black stripes around the transparent jar, and a curved hand-written logtype like a smile on top. This is ‘Babees‘, a clear and yummy idea by a skilled couple of Polish designers.
