These posters designed by Build were originally created and printed for now-defunct Australian magazine Refill. And now you can buy one of the leftovers. It’s a hot-looking item and apparently supplies are limited so get your hustle on.

Michael C Place and his wife have updated their website at Build. For the devout design fan Michael really needs no introduction as his work has been a strong influence on many designers over the years. His ‘keep it Helvetica’ approach has kept his work classic throughout his career and has kept him in the eye of many a client.

In case you do not know his story here is a little of his background from his new site:
Michael C Place studied graphic design at Newcastle College from 1988—1990 and makes no secret of the fact that he left early to follow his dream of designing record sleeves. Michael worked first with Trevor Jackson in London before moving back up North to work with influential graphics studio The Designers Republic in Sheffield, where he worked for the best part of 9 years. Whilst there Michael produced some of the best-known & seminal works of tDR that, although always anonymous, became well-known amongst followers of the studio. In 2000 Michael took a break from the design world and went on a 10-month world trip with his wife Nicky, returning to set up Build in 2001. Michael features in the 2007 film ‘Helvetica-A Documentary Film’, has spoken at numerous conferences worldwide, & has several times been a judge at the prestigious D&AD global awards.
Michael is the Creative Director of Build.”

Some nice work in the portfolio of one-time TDR employee Ash Spurr. Throw the guy a freelance bone, he has some great work in his book.

One of my all time favorite design studios, The Designers Republic, has offered a little flashing potential forecast of what could be a site update soon. Let’s hope so. It has been a very very very long time coming and I think all of us design junkies are have grown pretty weary of their current site. I have been a fan of their work going all the way back to college and I just cannot wait to see new work from them. I am always inspired by their work. Let’s hope a full update is coming soon.
