The year I discovered Sagmeister


Betty & June – Ryan Feerer

Seen via Graphic Exchange – then checked out Ryan Feerer’s site. Really nice stuff, all the way from Abilene, Texas.
Love the work, but also the quality of the photography of the work – the fact that they are great shots and also the graininess of them.
Words and pics from here.

“…branding and packaging for my (Feerer’s) friend’s boutique here in Abilene, Texas. All of the bags, tags, and business cards were hand stamped. Its quite a bit of work but feels more personable this way. Also, its more cost effective in the long run. Its pretty hip for Abilene… which is a wonderful thing!”

French & German Film Festival 2010 – The International Office

In New Zealand, the Goethe-Institut, the Alliance Française, the German and the French Embassies have been active for many years fostering cultural cooperation and bringing films over here that otherwise would not have reached their Kiwi audience. Last year, the first German Film Festival in New Zealand commemorated the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. The French Embassy has for four years in a row organised a similar festival in different cities around the country. Typeface: Haas Grotesk. Stock: Media Satin

Designed by The International Office – not 100% sure of where they are based but I think this work looks awesome. Words + pics from The International Office.

Jenny Kallman

An interesting place to work in – staged but not posed.

“Jenny Källman works in the field between documentary and staged photography. The arbitrary quality to photography is being put aside and instead a drama in time and room unfolds. The drama often takes place between young people, who appear in the images, as they experience a first, under-the-skin contact with the brutal plays for power that shape the roles of adult reality.”

Found via It’s Nice That‘s twitter feed.

Originally seen via Yay! Everyday – a site which I love – image + words from here.

“The husband and wife food photographers, who work under the name Minimiam (meaning MINI YUM), spend their days transforming everyday foods into whimsical, storied landscapes.”
