There is always something stunning about coming across gems like these two mid-century color palettes. While they may not be the most attractive images, they certainly have helped me nail down that ever-so-unique mid-century vibe. I’m most drawn to the Siliconized High Gloss and Color Varnish sets.

You can see some other examples of these colors in use here and here.

These book covers caught my eye immediately as I was fumbling through mid century design archives. The designer who created these was Richard Paul Lohse for the swiss architectural magazine Bauen + Wohnen. The actual booklet size is about 13 x 9.4 inches.

Australian Designspiration + CTA

April 1st, 2010






All new designspiration from Australian based design studio, War Design. This project was for CTA, a technical adhesive company. The goal was to reflect a new level of professionalism and technical advancement in their field and I believe they’ve done that in a strong manner.

Wouldn’t you agree that the system put into place for the Prohesive, Polyblend, and MCB product lines make them sing? The unfortunate thing is that these bags will see the trash can all too soon.
