Viva La Revolución Part II: Fernando Gaverd

Curator: David Grey
date: October 21, 2014
Categories: Art, Brand & Identity Design, Poster Design
Tags: graphic design, Mexico
Fernando Gaverd is another amazing Mexican designer. He creates some of the sexiest work I know; curves and lines that dance at the intersection of human form and geometry. He has the sensibility of a classic typographer and the curiosity of a graffiti kid. His symbols are amazing. They look like Frank Lloyd Wright inspired alien hieroglyphics. And his photography is stunning when used in his own projects. 

I’m always impressed by his sensitivity to scale and rhythm and movement and inspired by his confident mark-making. I have a feeling the world will soon be seeing much more of Fernando's work.

I'm loving the graphic façade on the new Warby Parker store on Abbot Kinney in Venice, CA. The store is close to the TRÜF studio and it’s even more stunning in person. In a town full of murals and street art, this one feels different.

Eephus League Resurrects the Nearly Lost Art of Baseball Scorekeeping

Having grown up in Cincinnati (aka the birthplace of the pro baseball), I still remember going to Reds games and being mesmerized by the dedication of some the old timers keeping score, marking every out, hit, even every pitch. It’s pretty cool how a simple series of numbers and straight lines can build to form the intricate and strategic story of a baseball game.


Eephus League, the passion project of Bethany Heck, has resurrected this art of scorekeeping with a gorgeous and thoughtfully designed collection of scorebooks, tutorials, and gear. Thanks to her work, I’m now an avid score keeper in the park and on the couch.

Swedish creative shop Kokokaka first caught my eye several years ago with their super smart and beautifully executed work for Wrangler which you can still check out here

Who knew you could build an interactive experience in which you actually interact with the product? Since then, Kokokaka has continued to push out great work for Ikea, Volvo, Louis Vuitton, and a handful of design-centric brands. Beyond just clever interactive pieces, all their work harmonizes the use of color, type, and of course photography and video styling.
