Simon Walker

The above (and below) typographic wizardry is brought to you by Simon Walker. I’m a total sucker for typographic compositions of this nature, and Simon has them in spades. Viewing his typographic and compositional skills paired with his bold, grungy take on Americana is an absolute delight.

Simon’s Flickr page is a fascinating testament to his relentless output of experimental, personal and commercial work. Alongside some of these grungier, worn-out type treatments are a number of slick, sophisticated logos. While the typographic sensibilities remain within the identity work, I particularly like the tight illustration and clean lines.

Be sure to see Simon’s logo, hand type, and illustration sets.

Amazing stuff, I love his style.

This work is beautiful! One day I would love to get into hand type design. I’d love to know the tools he uses to get to this final product.

Congrats Simon! Such killer work, always inspiring.

These style of logos are timeless

Those are logos right? I think Simon Walker clings to the beauty of vintage design, particularly in typography. For some reason, vintage appeals to most Americans and it is obvious from cars to designs. Aside from the fact that they are vintage looking, it’s surprising that they look pretty clean and neat.

This is amazing. I love his color palettes, so retro classic, and yet super tasteful!

i love his logos~ they have so much character in them.

So fricking good!

I think this stuff looks nice, but I don’t see what really sets it apart from any other logo designer. Very middle of the road and(although I hate to say it) corporate/ product logo styles. I wouldn’t even really call them vintage, either, just pretty normal logos. I could be wrong, but I don’t get the feeling any of this work was done by hand. I’m not saying this stuff isn’t any good, obviously it gets the job done and does it well!
