Stockholm based design studio Chevy Chase not only has a compelling name but also has some equally compelling work covering the bases of logo design, identity, design manuals, yypography, web design, web development with CMS, digital identities, poster design, magazines, brochures, annual reports, packaging and imagery concepts. The kind of work that is compelling enough for them to have done a full creative blogosphere tour in the last week.
The one thing I want to know is if they have gotten a cease and desist from Chevy Chase’s agent yet.
Oslo-based multidisciplinary design studio Heydays has been busy and updated with a slew of new print and branding work this week. All of which is meticulously photographed (a skill in and of itself) and looks stunning. Their bold simple use of color makes their work pop.
Design and branding studio No Method has launched a new website with a huge portfolio of amazing creative work. There are a lot of gems to be mined but it is well worth the excavation.
London based Inventory Studio was founded in 2008 by Robert Boon & David Lane. They have some great work for branding and print including the logo and stationary system for the restaurant consultancy ‘Eat Green’. ‘Cracking’ as my friends across the pond might say.
Labzeus is the graphic design work of recently graduated but deeply life-experienced Denver based designer Brian Neumann. I am hoping to work with Brian on future projects as I embark on initiating the creative service branch of Changethethought. Brian has worked diligently to improve himself and his skillset and has grown by leaps and bounds since I first met him when we was in the middle of study. He is currently interning at Cactus here in Denver. I can say with certainty that he is also a really great guy and an equally great person to work with. He is currently accepting both freelance and considering full time opportunities in Denver. So you might want to try and snatch him up before I can figure out a way to keep him busy.
Hamish Makgill has updated his Brighton based studio’s website at Studio Makgill with some haute new work that has been burning up the creative blog-wire all day today. There is some beautiful work for print happening throughout the updated Makgill portfolio.

London design powerhouse Barnbrook has updated with a new website and a few new examples as work so far as I can tell. Regardless, it’s another excuse to peruse through their incredible body of expertly realized design work.

There is some gorgeous branding and print work in the portfolio of Lotta Nieminen who studied at both the University of Art and Design Helsinki and The Rhode Island School of Design. That is quite a background and it shows in the work.
