Brighten The Corners

Brighten The Corners is an independent, multi-disciplined design and strategy consultancy with offices in London and Stuttgart. It is also the title of the fourth studio album recorded by indie rock behemoth, Pavement. As an out-and-out fan of Pavement I find this connection quite interesting.

This letter pressed series of Italian quotes initially caught my eye, but the studio is indeed multi-disciplined—with their hands in a variety of projects. In particular, they’re very adept at handling smart, academically-minded publications.

The info section provides a brief note about the studio title: “Although tracing the connection may seem difficult, the more persistent listener will find that repeated sessions of Type Slowly, Date w/ IKEA or Old to Begin will offer invaluable insights.”

Uauu simply beautiful. The projects that celebrate I love typography.

‘Lettuce’ – classic! Love the typography and style.

Love the Victor and Susie graphics. When I did my design course at college I had to make a comic strip out of typography, was loads of fun, and an interesting, different way to look at type.

Also, the Arial Bembo poster is amazing. I would buy this as a print for sure. For a start, the shade of pink on a white background is effective, but the type layout, with letters missing is awesome. A little bit of an in-joke as well, unless you were a designer, it would make no sense at all.

Thanks for sharing. Very inspiring.
