Print Of The Week: IKONIK series by Darling Clementine

Every so I often I come across a design or illustration that sends me into an enthusiastic frenzy. This happened again last week when I discovered the amazing IKONIK series by a Norwegian duo who call themselves Darling Clementine. I completely love everything about this series. The shapes look like rough paper cut-outs and the use of the same 3 or 4 colours is just really inspiring. This work is so close the the kind of designs I’m working towards. If you look at my previous post you’ll see how the colours i’ve been using are rather similar. Take a look at their full range on the Darling Clementine website

Print of the Week: Abacus By Paul Rand

This weeks Print of the Week goes to Paul Rand. You may not recognise his name but you would certainly have seen his work as he designed the famous IBM and the UPS logo. I love his early book covers from the 1950’s but this design is my absolute favourite. This was originally a photogram that was used for his book Thoughts on Design and printed onto fabric. I love these colours and might try that combination out myself!
