Mathematics – Golden Meaning

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Often referred to as the ‘divine proportion’, the golden mean has long served as a blueprint for innovation and aesthetic appeal. Golden Meaning puts this to the test, exploring the relationship between graphic design and mathematics to present the golden mean as never before.

Intended to be as intriguing as it is illuminating, Golden Meaning collects the responses of 55 (think Fibonacci) designers, typographers and image-makers to the same brief – to communicate, explore or explain the golden mean.

 An attempt to demystify mathematics, Golden Meaning is not just a book for graphic designers. Whatever your interest or level of knowledge these 55 interpretations will inform and delight. A contemporary take on a golden oldie, Golden Meaning challenges perceptions of what – and who – graphic design is for.

Allegro Gets Musical

Antonia Skaraki A.S. delivers a clever rendition of a music note with the history of Italy and a wine strain in either red or yellow based on the type of wine. 

“A variety of visual elements make up the musical note. The circle of note is formed by the footprint that leaves a glass of wine. An ancient Greek figure that plays a stringed musical instrument, a Venetian pillar and banners perfect the note. The Zakynthian culture with the Italian in a musical symbol.” Allegro_03.jpg

BABA G

MIRADOR | Baba G

Named after the Middle Eastern aubergine dish babaganoush, Baba G is a small rotisserie deli based in Johannesburg, South Africa, focusing on street food with a fusion of Afro-Mediterranean flavours.

Tutto Food Co. approached Johannesburg based freelance graphic designer and illustrator Shaun Hill to create the brand identity for their new restaurant, Baba G. The idea was to create something contemporary and quirky yet still pay homage to the Afro-Mediterranean roots the restaurant is based upon.
