Wow. I’m really impressed with Scotty Reifsnyder‘s work. He has great variety and a nice range of projects up on his site. His use of type and texture is really effective — lots of little details to soak up. Scotty is a recent Tyler School of Art MFA graduate, and works at Headcase Design by day.

Sweet Mother! Six columns of grid goodness! Antonio from Aisle One just emailed me with his latest project The Grid System. The site features links to articles, tools, books as well as templates and other goodies. It’s basically an ever-growing resource site on the topic of grid systems and anything associated to it. Tap it and pass it!

Fun! Prizes! Things! Anorak has to be one of the coolest kids magazines around. Aimed squarely at five to nine year-olds, Anorak is way more creative and engaging than the Highlights dentist fare I grew up with. In each issue they have original stories written and illustrated by contemporary authors, fashion and style for kids, and new children’s products. I’m definitely sold.
Toronto-based Doublenaut sent over some prints recently, including this Wolf Parade gem. I’m loving their type, texture, illustration, and color combinations. Bonus points for a great gargoyle as well!
Also, I believe that ‘R’ belongs in my personal collection.
Love, love, love these cover illustrations by Cristóbal Schmal! So good. All of his work has this same great texture and quality to it. Makes me want to touch everything! His type is super snappy as well, and integrates nicely with the illustrations. Check his site out, he’s got lots interesting projects and experiments going on.

Pretty, bummed, and sad? No way! San Francisco based designer and illustrator, Liam Devowski, is anything but that! His work is heavily influenced by bold ’70s type, and he successfully juxtaposes bright cheerful colors with lonesome emotional phrases. Liam also contributes to the pop art and design blog Viewers Like You, which features posts by Rad Mountain’s own Damien Correll.
Brian Roettinger is the L.A. based designer and typographic song-and-dance man behind Hand Held Heart. He created the above work while traveling with Liars and No Age, making individual 7″ covers for each city on the tour.
A lot of Brian’s work has this same focus and attention to detail. Every little piece is thought-out and considered. The work feels experimental and unique, and at the same time deliberate, intentional, and confident.
