Improving upon, competing with or even coming close the the juggernaut typeface Helvetica is no small task. But that didn’t stop Mash Creative from making an extremely valiant effort in doing so. The end result of that effort is a typeface called RM Regular that you can now purchase at Hype For Type. It’s a beauty. I’d expect to see this one cropping up in a few projects out there this next year.
Mash Creative (who reached out to us) and Design Museum recently released a new series of minimal yet affordable products as a part of their State of the Obvious line. The entire collection is available only through the Design Museum shop and features some beautifully designed pieces like iPhone and tablet skins.
Creative Director, Mark Bloom had this to say about the release:
“Extending the philosophy & thinking behind our branded State of the Obvious collection, we have designed a set of products exclusively for the Design Museum.
The design of these products has been heavily influenced by the International Typographic Style from the 50’s and 60’s & shows an evolution from our original S/O/T/O collection. It has been designed to appeal to typography and design lovers alike.
At S/O/T/O we design and produce products which not only look good but also have a useful function.”
Mash Creative has updated again with another fun minimally designed and typographically-based project anchored by a simple concept.
Mark Bloom notified me earlier this week that some updates have been made to the East London/Essex based Mash Creative portfolio including some nice print and branding work.
Mark Bloom of Mash Creative sent me word about his recently designed and now available for sale A1 Calendar Poster. The run is limited to 100 and you can pick one up at Counter-Objects.
“The posters are printed 2 colour litho on 170gsm cyclus offset with a 60% cyan shiner to achieve an extra rich black. Each poster is hand numbered and signed by the designer.”
