HIGHLIGHTS | Colorful typography

It is no exaggeration to say that we are now witnessing a new renaissance of creative typography. As extravagant, experimental specimens and typefaces roll off the production lines of punchcutters, we are putting our written culture to the test over and over again.

HIGHLIGHTS | Gastronomy wrapped in graphics

It might go without saying, but gastronomy goes hand in hand with graphic design. Many businesses are entering the market with more and more excellent visual identities, and many are willing to spend money and energy on the packaging. This week, we showcase projects where design goes beyond the culinary

Ever since ancient times, humans have used tools for their various activities.

This is not the first time in the history of our HIGHLIGHTS series that we are sharing design projects that revive the heritage of the past, but we have never presented works that bring a retro world to life in the form of campaigns and objects found in our contemporary

HIGHLIGHTS | We would go to such festivals this year as well

In recent decades, most young people have spent their summers at festivals. As last year many of us were forced to choose other forms of entertainment while forgetting the festivals, this year many events will open their doors again. In our current project selection, we present our favorite visual identities

Since the turn of the millennium, many novelties and technological achievements have come into the public view. Perhaps the best known of these is 3D printing technology, which can now move into anyone’s home. This week, we collected projects related to digital sculpting. Many times we hear, think that

Shiny, durable, protective: these and similar positive properties characterize metal, which has become the most practical material in the packaging industry by now. In this week’s selection, we show you metal-based packagings. When we think of ancient wars or medieval tournaments, metal armors covering the bodies of courageous fighters

HIGHLIGHTS | Colorful world

From a very young age, a mysterious, parallel world becomes part of our lives. We recreate this world over and over again, first through children’s drawings, and later, thanks to trained creatives, through professional illustrations appearing in our environment. Everything in this world is colorful, beautiful and functional. In

HIGHLIGHTS | Back to Home

To be able to work efficiently, we primarily need a calm and balanced environment, an indispensable element of which is a good workstation.

HIGHLIGHTS | Posters, prints, billboards

What makes a good poster? Above all, if it calls attention. But what makes a poster catch our eyes, speak to us and demand our attention? Is it a clever or funny slogan? Is it an unusual or perhaps tried-and-true font? And what’s the deal with the product the

HIGHLIGHTS | Carefree objects

The objects chosen for our daily work must (also) meet a strict set of criteria. We consider a laptop a long-term investment, which we don’t buy while in a rush (at best): we purchase the selected product after careful consideration, trusting that it will serve us every day. We

HIGHLIGHTS | Animated illustrations

When we hear the word animation, we tend to think of something unserious or even childish. Hearing the word makes us think of the world of fairy-tales, a sweet and unrealistic story: many times (wrongly) we think of the motion picture creations defined as animation movies as cartoons, and regard

Colorful duffle bags and suitcases fill the trunk of the bus. The driver tries to stuff one last backpack into the flood of packages. After a goodbye kiss, a hug and a “take care”, the great adventure begins. We travel on highways, and pass through unknown cities and villages until

While in former times, the products wished to be sold used to be promoted by paperboys, signboards, tastefully composed shop windows and cleverly worded advertisements, today, banners covering giant facades and billboards triggering interaction are telling us: “this is what you need.” But that’s not enough.

A poster says: “I’m available” – in other words, a print is an affordable work of art. We love to take our time when choosing the perfect poster, we consider several factors and think it over thoroughly, as it’s not just an everyday decorative element we choose to match

In the era of Gutenberg, the father of printing, type foundries and punchcutting workshops designed and manufactured the basic accessories of typesetting, the matrices and cutting punches.

HIGHLIGHTS | To go

Today, to-go paper cups have a reputation almost as bad as that of plastic bags used for shopping. A hundred years ago, disposable cups meant a major technological innovation: in 1908, Boston-based lawyer Lawrence Luellen came up with the idea of single-use paper cups to prevent the spreading of various
