Well the weather sucks across most of the mainland US right now, so my wife and I decided to get the F outta town. We're in Kaua'i right now and have been enjoying the weather, food, and the scenery. Duh. I've been keeping my eyes open for sign, logos and other interesting design inspiration out here, so here are a few little bits that I've encountered. Many more to come!

We have found a very limited selection of Artist Proofs and Printer Proofs of this fantastic print!
We are back with a third edition of one of our most popular prints. Autumn 2011 is just about here, so Aaron Draplin came back to pay homage to Minnesota in bright blaze orange hunting colors! Don't let your computer monitor fool you - that orange ink is eyeball-burning, hunter-deflecting fluorescent orange! Maybe our favorite colorway of this bad boy we've done.

When it comes to logo designers, you really couldn't hope for anyone more creative and prolific than the late, great Stefan Kanchev. During the second half of the 20th Century, he single-handedly put Bulgaria on the world graphic design map, pumping out hundreds and hundreds of logomarks, postage stamps, and other incredibly stylish and effective designs. Here is a collection of some of his best work. These images are from a series of photos from an exhibition of Kanchev's work found on logoblink.com
