Designer Joe Bauldoff participated in a local pumpkin carving competition and fundraiser in Charlotte, North Carolina. He went for gold and carved the scariest thing any graphic designer could possibly think of: the rejected Gap logo. More info on his site. Nice work Joe.
Ballard Bee Company is an urban pollination company in Seattle, comprised of about 50 hives. Because Seattle limits the number of hives a resident can have their yard, Ballard contracts with dozens of individuals who volunteer to host hives in exchange for a couple bottles of glorious local honey each year. The end product is then sold to nearby restaurants and boutiques. A great interview with founder Corky Luster on Seattlest. (via mister crew)
Hot identity work for London salon Znips by mind design.
The Znips logo is inspired by locks of hair and hand-cut lettering we found in a 80s Punk fanzine. As part of the interior we designed an art piece made from chopped books curled into strands of hair resembling the curved shapes in the logo.
