Launched in 2010, the site showcases design work from studios worldwide. There are hundreds of projects in these pages, from designers in Mexico, Sweden, Vietnam, USA, France, Australia, Brazil, England… all over.

Courtesy of the kind folk at US publisher Rockport, you can now pick up the accompanying books. Much respect to everyone who helped with those.

If you have a project to share, please send images at a minimum of 1200px wide, along with a description of the brief, the design idea, typefaces used, customised or created, paper stock, commercial printers, tales of the unexpected.
