This Adidas rugby campaign from way back in 2003 won 180 Amsterdam an Epica for creative direction . It’s based on monoprints of rugby players jumping on paper. The look really does captures the dirt, energy and impact of rugby.
Came across the Nuvo, a soccer jersey inspired t-shirt, over at the Alien Workshop site. It’s got that retro-80′s color block going for it. World Cup 2010 kicks off today, good luck to all your teams!
We re-watched Sherlock Holmes and I forgot how amazing the titles and end credits were. The Art of The Title Sequence has an interview with Danny Yount, creative director, that goes into some detail about the process (below) of arriving at the final style (above) and the some of the inspiration behind it. Worth checking out on youtube. Beware of the sequence with some random rock song dubbed over it instead of the original Hans Zimmer composition.
It is absolute insanity to think that we started this blog in September of 2006 and it is now Summer 2010! But since then, the blog has only had minor tweaks to the design. We decided we had to up our game and make our blog a little more grown-up. We hope you enjoy the new look and thank you for all your support over the last 4 years!
We’re working on a logo for a friend’s business and I came across this link for pages and pages of 1-color vintage logos. How things have changed.

I like noodling around on font sites looking for new fonts to use in our projects. I came across Molecular Complex-1 by Wilson Thomas and was immediately in love with it. If you decide to use any of them, be sure to check the rights that the designer setup for the font!
