Ritornell for Musicbox

Posted by Scott

Beautifully designed functional business cards designed by Katharina Hölzl for jazz duo Ritornell. The laser-milled cards play back music when ran through a specially designed music box. Very clever take on the idea of a calling card.

And for good measure here is a shot of Ritornell’s studio. Looks like a pretty serious setup…

Trading Card Designs – Part 1

Posted by Jakub

When I look back into my childhood I try and figure out why I have such a intense passion for certain layouts, design and unique printing. I’m sure some of it just stems from trying to revive nostalgia, though sometimes I think it all comes back to my obsession with collecting sport cards, I think I was at 40k+ cards at one point and every Beckett Pricing Magazine imaginable. I’m only showing the tip of this iceberg so i’ll make it a series, we’ll start with some classic O-Pee-Chee and Fleer and once we get into the deep cuts i’ll share some real favorites but pretty much that Cam Neely one is a favorite.

I still do my best to be a hockey fan these days but i’m kind of over it for the most part but I was an insane collector of NHL(mainly Vancouver Canucks and Pavel Bure) memorabilia when I was a little kid though. I saw these posted on facebook and I had to share since some of the layouts, pretty unbeatable compared to whats out there these days.

Belgian Design from Paul Ibou

Paul Ibou was a great Belgian graphic designer who studied at the Royal Academy in Antwerp. In 1961, at age 23, he began working as a freelance designer under the pseudonym Ibou. The term Ibou meant “inventive book designer and publisher”. Also, in French Ibou also meant “owl” which initiated the beginnings of his large collection of owl symbols.
