Studio Output has kept busy this past year and updated yet again with a lot of interesting new work. It’s all kind of a mixed bag in their portfolio in terms of how it’s displayed but start clicking around and you will find a lot of new inspirational goodies.
Chris Burnett is a BFA3 student at CalArts in the Graphic Design program. He already has a portfolio that shows a tremendous amount of maturity and an attention to typography that most veteran designers would be jealous of. It’s a safe bet to keep an eye on this young man because is going to go far.
Stephen Brayda is an illustrator with a strong typographic sensibility who is starting to amass a nice body of work. It feels familiar but in a good way and definitely points toward a growing talent.
Wonder Level is the work of Masato Nakada and he presents it in an interesting ‘here it all is’ kind of way. It’s a lot to take in and there is a wide breadth of influences happening but it’s an attractive body of work.
Vanilla BCN is back again with more kick ass typographical works for clients like Nike. We love their tee shirt work. It’s air tight.
Pablo Alfieri has been on a roll now for a while. He’s recently updated his Behance-folio with several new works including new typographical work for Nike and several other projects. He’s also still successfully helping run one of the hottest new motion studios out there at Plenty.
Self-taught designer and illustrator Jorge Amador has updated his website with some nice new branding, illustration and typographical work. It’s a solid showing of versatility especially considering the fact that he is self-taught.
Future Deluxe created this animated piece for One’s Global Famine campaign. It’s a simple yet effective little piece showcasing some sharp art direction and nice typography.

Barcelona based brothers Juan and Alejandro Mingarro are Brosmind. I have posted their work here before but it appears they have since updated with some more fun and playful vector illustration work.
If after many years of fucking experience, I could be so bold as to offer one fucking piece of fucking advice it would be to buy this fucking screen print, fucking frame it and fucking display it at your shop or fucking agency so all of your fucking people and clients can fucking see it because it holds many fucking truths.
“The Alphabet 2- a horn book video experiment – is a developmental spelling – video where each character visually represents the meaning of the word itself. Playing with different techniques and materials into little and big spaces, but always focusing on Helvetica font’s proportions. A collection of words in a delightful spelling-video.”

There is some seriously radical chrome action happening in the portfolio of Etienne Chaize. Lots of shiny, colorful and deliciously vector typography is on display and it’s a hell of a lot of fun to look at.
I may have posted Wayne White’s work a long time back but his word paintings are simply well…you can read it above. It’s absolutely amazing just how many of these he has done and how well rendered each one is. I’d love to have one to hang at home or in our studio.
Typographer Seb Lester has released another beautiful print with a simple message, ‘peace’. That message is communicated however through a complex and beautiful work of artistic typography. To find out more about purchasing the print visit Lester’s website.
I’ll be honest and admit that I don’t entirely know what is being promoted through this piece by Respublika but I do know that I very much enjoyed the animation and the attention to detail with the typographical layouts. The simple descriptor for the piece reads ‘Books. Music. Perspective.’
Bella is a new typeface drawing inspiration from Herb Lubalin designed by Rick Banks AKA ‘Face37‘ available exclusively at Hype for Type. I gotta say I think it is quite possibly one of the most attractive typefaces I have seen hit the market in a long time. The letterforms and the ampersand are absolutely exquisitely designed. I am itching to get my hands on a copy. It’s a truly gorgeous alphabet.
