Los Angeles, CA – 2016
“My work is inspired by an ongoing observation of the situations happening around me, from the larger, shared experiences of our current events down to the more personal and intimate moments. I look at these experiences not in isolation from each other but as connected and often informing a larger conversation of how we are all connected. Through my work I reflect and distill those insights in an attempt to preserve those times or feelings during them. Because of this, I often see the final works as artifacts or reminders of what is taken away, and have come to use this perspective as a guide in my work — to create something worth being reminded of.
A large portion of my work focuses on typography through an abstracted perspective. In various ways letterforms are disguised or intentionally camouflaged to shift the viewer’s focus to the individual shapes within the characters, their relationships to one another and the overall mood of the work before uncovering the legibility of the message. It is intentional to not have the viewer read, but explore the ideas through more visual languages.” Scott Albrecht
What happens when you survey UK- and US-based graphic designers and ask prying questions about life and work? Presented here are the responses, by turn fanatical, funny and frank, of 1,988 designers. Exhausted but enthusiastic, critical and creative, frustrated yet optimistic… their answers will surprise. One thing is certain – they really love graphic design and what it can do.
Examining their responses in collaboration with social scientist Nikandre Kopcke, we present new findings and re-evaluate age-old clichés about graphic design: from studio to household, from student to CEO, across gender, age and the Atlantic.
Graphic Designers Surveyed was designed by LucienneRoberts+ with more complex visualisations by data designer Stefanie Posavec.

Melbourne based design studio Mildred & Duck were approached to create an identity for Souk, a new bar and restaurant, that would visually interpret their modern take on Middle Eastern food.
The resulting logo, a playful interpretation of the way Arabic is read from right to left, has been used prominently throughout the space and becomes a part of the entire experience. Coupled with the the sub-mark, a modern take on the traditional evil eye, the resulting overall design by Mildred & Duck is a memorable and characterful visual identity that compliments the space and sprit of Souk.
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.

All-natural, organic, eco-friendly and sustainable are terms that are frequently thrown around on products you’d find in the personal care section of any store. And yet, a majority of those products are still packaged in plastic and oftentimes include the kind of super-secret ingredients grown in an evil scientist’s laboratory.
And that’s why Wise’s line of men’s grooming products stand head and shoulders above the rest.
