Kalman and the Restaurant

Probably one of the best designer-client relationship ever was between greatest Tibor Kalman -well-known for his singular creativity, his work as editor-in-chief of Colors Magazine and his way to make commercial art serve society- and Florent Morellet, owner of Restaurant Florent in New York.

While Tibor made quirky advertisements for the Restaurant, Morellet fed the designers of M&Co (Kalman’s design firm) four days a week from 1985 to 1993. Great deal!

Careful, its work may have two simple purposes: to feed your inspiration or to completely kill your creative ego.

Countries and their logos

With the aim to have an identity, countries also have their own logos.

Putting together symbols, colors and typography to represent a whole nation is probably one of the hardest tasks for a designer. See a collection here.

The Other Side

The idea behind the book “The Other Side” just fascinates me. Each page has a corresponding opposite, so we get to see the “two sides of the picture”. Here is a door, what’s on the other side?

Hungarian Istvan Banyai, artist and designer, uses his characteristic stylized illustrations to surprise us with the answer.
