26. Okay

Okay

The work of Carl Bender’s design studio, Okay, holds far more merit than its name implies. Having a strong sense of narrative, he creates distinct and memorable brands by integrating his client’s stories into his designs. I’m especially fond of his work for Bender’s Whiskey Co. Inspired by the company’s location on San Francisco’s Treasure Island, the whiskey’s quirky illustrative packaging pays homage to the island’s nautical history and the swashbuckling sailors who have spent time there.

Yana by Laura Worthington

 

Classy, calligraphic, and confident. Yana’s classical proportions convey worldly sophistication and experience. Yet unlike more staid classical faces, Yana’s concave terminals and elegantly flared serifs suggest romance, mystery, and a touch of Victorian extravagance.

Designed as a versatile family for everything from text use to headlines and titling, you’ll find yourself using Yana in project after project. Yana is available in regular, bold, and italic variants, and includes two sets of swash capitals — each available in standard sizes and small caps, but also in mid-sized petite caps, ideal for adding beautiful, properly scaled flourishes to the middle or end of wordmarks.

Yana is available through a limited-time promo deal here.

 

 

 

Yana by Laura Worthington

 

  • 3 different styles make up the Yana Family: Regular, Bold and Italics.
  • Every style comes available in standard sizes, small caps and mid-sized petite caps.
  • Includes 2 sets of swash capitals as well.
  • This versatile serif face sports more than 200 alternates, Old-Style Numbers, Small and Large Caps, and more.

 

Pick up Yana at Mighty Deals.

Graphic Designers Surveyed

Graphic Designers Surveyed
Edited by Lucienne Roberts, Rebecca Wright and Jessie Price with Nikandre Kopcke and Stefanie Posavec
Published by GraphicDesign&
480 Pages

What happens when you survey UK- and US-based graphic designers and ask prying questions about life and work? Presented here are the responses, by turn fanatical, funny and frank, of 1,988 designers. Exhausted but enthusiastic, critical and creative, frustrated yet optimistic… their answers will surprise. One thing is certain – they really love graphic design and what it can do.

Examining their responses in collaboration with social scientist Nikandre Kopcke, we present new findings and re-evaluate age-old clichés about graphic design: from studio to household, from student to CEO, across gender, age and the Atlantic.

Digital Design Theory: Readings From the Field
By Helen Armstrong / Published by Princeton Architectural Press

Digital Design Theory bridges the gap between the discourse of print design and interactive experience by examining the impact of computation on the field of design. As graphic design moves from the creation of closed, static objects to the development of open, interactive frameworks, designers seek to understand their own rapidly shifting profession. Helen Armstrong’s carefully curated introduction to groundbreaking primary texts, from the 1960s to the present, provides the background necessary for an understanding of digital design vocabulary and thought.
