The year I discovered Sagmeister


Mélanie Kimmett – 1

A bit of a love in of Melanie Kimmett’s portfolio and blog. I discovered her site yesterday, checked out some of it today and am so impressed with the content of the blog and the fantastic work she does. Melanie is a designer and illustrator based in Vancouver “specialized in conceptualizing identity + brand design, print publication and illustration”. The work that she (and her team) worked on for the Vancouver Olympics is fab – in particular the AMAZING mascots that she was involved with – “from colour/fabric selection, approval of shape and form as well as calculating and producing 3D sewing patterns to ensure the placement of specific characteristics matched the 2D drawings”. I actually wanted these (and still do)!! Words and pics via her site. This will be the first of many posts…!
