Konst & Teknik is a Stockholm-based design studio producing work ranging from type design to branding and editorial design. The identity they created for the X-Border Art Biennial uses custom typography as the basis for a dynamic identity system. [Pictured left].

The Avery Review is an online architectural journal designed by Eric Hu. I love the typographic treatment throughout the site, especially the combination of a thin display serif typeface and a bold geometric sans serif typeface.

The work of designer Lucas Descroix focuses on drawing expressive typefaces and also designing printed matter such as books and posters. In an interview with ItsNiceThat, Lucas Descroix discusses that his passion for type design came from the realization that typography is "at the crossroads of different fields."

Nao Tatsumi is an illustrator based in Tokyo whose work stems from an interest in architecture. His project entitled Street View Journey, uses Google's street view to create paintings and in an interview with ItsNiceThat, she shares that she is drawn to the mundane quality that characterizes many of the scenes she paints.

Toronto-based design studio, Blok, designed the publication Origen México that highlights the creativity that exists within Mexican culture.

Kiosk Studio developed the identity for the Buenos Aires based cultural center, Pavilion Nordico. Josefin Askfelt of Kiosk Studio tells ItsNiceThat, “for the identity they were keen to avoid any connotations of Nordic-Colonialism, as the whole project is about unity between nations.” With this in mind, the studio did a ton of research into Argentina as well as symbols seen in geographic and tracking technology. They found that the dot was an extremely prevalent symbol in tracking technology and used this idea to drive the project.

ASCII Town is a website created during a 2.5 hour drawing exercise using the ASCII character table. The participants were instructed to created imaginary dwellings with the character set that drew inspiration from concrete poetry and typewriter art.

After buying an array of floppy disks containing various data sets, David Broenner & Lucas Hesse created the publication Micro Floppy Archive to visual the data they discovered on the disks. The publication was generated automatically and was paired with a website that served as an index of the floppy disks they collected.
