Erwin Bauer

I absolutely love this book cover by Erwin Bauer. Great mix of type and architectural elements. The inside design has some really yummy type details. I love finding work like this, it feels so effortless.

Erwin Bauer is a man, and a design studio based in Vienna, Austria. They work on a wide range of projects, from architecture, traditional graphic design, and type design.

I like their “Rejected” section, which I assume compiles their unused designs. It would be fun to see this from more firms.

Reinforcing the saying “Less is more”

Love it! You just can’t beat giant letterforms.

A company I used to work at once compiled a whole section in their company brochure called ‘the ones that got away’ – a selection of all their unused logo designs, many of which where better than the ones used! It never got printed though, which was a shame :(

lovely and inspiring

Sometimes there’s too much rejection, not enough ejection. Right, Ethan?

Love the work on the site. Really beautiful typography, especially in German! Good design looks even better in a language you can’t understand.
