Designer Challenges Himself To Create Logos With Hidden Meanings For A Year

Wordplay is a never-ending source of amusement for me, with puns, spoonerisms and double entendres bringing a little extra color and life to the everyday language that we sometimes take for granted.

Swedish designer Daniel Carlmatz also loves to get creative with words, but in a different way. He set himself a challenge to create a new typographic logo each day for 365 days, using a common word and adding related visual elements through symbolism, creative use of negative space, and geometry.

“The inspiration for the 365 day challenge came from trying to challenge myself to look at type and design from a different perspective,” Daniel told Bored Panda. “The challenge was just an outlet for my personal design thinking. And yes, I did manage to finish it without missing a day!”

The results are truly remarkable in their creativity and simplicity, proving that inspiration for design is all around us. For Daniel though, the process was anything but simple.

“I struggled,” he told us. “I didn’t want them to take up too much of my time so I used to do them in my head or sketch them down on my way to work, and then finalize them on my way home from work. But sometimes you just end up with nothing.”

“Cats Like Plain Crisps”: Brilliant Photos Of Great Graffiti In 1970s London

Roger Perry’s photographs of graffiti in 1970s London were compiled in the 1976 book The Writing On The Wall. Perry (1944 – 1991), a photographer whose work regularly featured in Time Out, The Sunday Times, Vogue and Nova, captured a side of literary London when the city was hit by recession, poor housing and urban decay.

As singer George Melly (17 August 1926 – 5 July 2007) notes in the book’s introduction: “In a world of supermarkets, office-blocks, processed chickens, VAT forms, computers, ECT, time and motion studies, what graffiti proclaims is ‘Human beings rule OK!’”

“I used to go down to Basing Street a lot because Island Records had their studios there,” says Pearce Marchbank, who designed the book. “It was really rough around there at night. You’d come out of the studio at 4am and it felt like people were sharpening their knives on the corners of buildings, that kind of thing. Now it’s David Cameron, isn’t it? Shops that sell scented candles.”

Brilliant Watercolor Paintings Of The Russian Artist Dima Rebus

Creating works that float somewhere between reality and the surreal, Dima Rebus is a young Russian artist working predominately in watercolor. Often described as unsettling, his paintings depict humans and their eerie situations, accompanied by often cheeky titles that evoke the contemporary times we live in.

His practice also includes making illustrations for magazines and publishing houses – just recently, one of his works became the image of National Geographic film Saints & Strangers.

Born in Naberezhnie Chelny, the artist graduated in 2011 from Graphic Design Department of the Moscow Institut of Arts and Industry, and in 2016, he enrolled at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Moscow. With an impeccable technique, extremely detailed, thought-provoking, and inspired at times by his Russian roots, Rebus portrays a unique vision of the contemporary world.
