Schwager is a steampunk slab serif typeface with an industrial accent in a contemporary tone. Its strong structure and male, makes it ideal for titles, headlines and brands of male lifestyle, technology and trend. This typeface contains alternate glyphs that help to emphasize text or headlines.
Sasha Barr, head designer and co-owner of Amigo Skateboards collaborated with skate wax company, Skate Sauce, to produce a limited edition skateboarding wax to coincide with the launch of their Stangland’s Stache Wax skateboard.
The box for Stangland’s Stache Wax was designed and hand assembled by Barr. Drawing inspiration from rider Ryan Stangland’s signature ‘stache, Barr creates an elegant, tongue in cheek design to house the skateboarding wax. Created in conjunction of the release of their Stangland’s Stache Wax skateboard, the design for the box echos the motif used on the skateboard. Grabbing the “‘stache wax” tin from the skateboard, Barr creates a play on words teasing that Stangland’s Stache Wax can actually be used to tame one’s mustache.
One of the most destructive of creative sins is an over-inflated ego. When many people hear the word “ego,” they immediately think of the know-it-all manager charging into the room and insisting that everyone bend their life and work around his every whim. This is certainly one exhibition of ego, but there are less obvious types that we must be careful to avoid if we want to do our best creative work consistently.
“During the first Designathon, a 48 Hour Design Challenge that took place in Athens, we were assigned the branding and web design of the –fictional- bottled water brand, Puro. Our task was to design the logo for the base product, as well as two side-logos for the Still and Sparkling Water counterparts after being given a short brief as well as the sitemap and copy for the website.”

Peter Clark is an epically-talented collage artist who focuses much of his expertise on creating dog collage portraits. The workmanship evidenced in his pieces completely blows me away. Peter uses an extensive collection of found papers as his palette “which are colored, patterned or textured by their printed, written, or worn surfaces.” He uses this found media to “paint” his collages. And the results are completely stunning!
