Graphic Design: Bumper Edition

It’s been awhile since I have showcased the impressive graphic design work floating around the internet, so I decided to go large with a bumper edition of book covers, corporate identities and packaging.

First up is Portuguese creative company FBA, who designed a series of minimalist book covers for literature reading guides catering to university and high school level students:

“The books are intended to support the reading of Portuguese literature masterpieces whose authors are true icons of Portuguese culture. Picking up on this notion of icon, the design approach was to literally “create the author’s face on the cover of the book”, thus transforming covers into faces and faces into covers. “

Anagrama is a Mexican design studio that consistently churns out amazing work of such a high quality. With this corporate identity for high-end boutique Cocolobo, they managed to make use of one of the most cliched icons – a heart – and turn it into something that is unique, elegant and stylish.

I really love the simple iconography and type design of Yoko Ono’s latest book, Acorn.

“In Acorn, renowned artist and political activist Yoko Ono offers intriguing, enchanting exercises to open our eyes on better ways of relating to ourselves, each other, and the planet we co-habit. Throughout the book are drawings by Yoko, many never before seen.”
