Sticking with the branding theme we seem to have going, I thought I’d take you across the pond, drawing your attention to a lovely little barber shop. This very impressive branding and identity project was done by Richard Arthur Stewart.
Now, Stewart is a Graphic Designer and Illustrator living in Boston MA. He describes Fast Eddie’s as a no nonsense traditional American barber shop, located in Allston, one of Boston’s many historical neighborhoods.
“This place is the epitome of traditional Americana, which I wanted the mark and typography to represent; Franklin Gothic and ATF Bodoni scanned from a letterpress book with a mash up illustration combining an iconic eagle and barber’s comb.”
“I wanted to stay away from the red, white & blue barber pole theme and stick with something high contrast and modern. Stark, rich blacks screen printed on whitewash 100 lb. card stock give the collateral a strong masculine feel while referencing the brand’s age and history.”
That is does, Rich. That is does!

An amazing graduation project from Dutch creative designer Jurjen Versteeg. The film is cleverly executed as it shows a summerised history of the title sequence. It includes all the names of designers who had a revolutionary impact on the history and evolution of title sequencing, as a possible documentary style title sequence itself.
Based in Rotterdam, Verteeg specializes in motion graphic design, animation, print and visual effects for film, television and web, although his main interest lies within title design. I would definitely recommend checking Jurjen Verteeg’s website for more projects, more information and news updates.
I know I’m pretty late with this but I’ve been meaning to post this for while now and wanted to start off the new site with it! Me and Ben went to London’s Zine Symposium for the first time and we were pretty darn impressed with the amount of zine enthusiasts there are out there! Being there was pretty inspiring and encouraged us to think, “hey, that should be us sitting there swapping and selling zines…”. So rest assurred it will be next time!
I think I’ve found a new love for zines recently, most likely due to the encouragement from the good people at Zineswap! I’m sure we’ll be making more zines soon and hopefully we’ll soon start a little section on the website dedicated to it. Keep posted on our Facebook page for more updates.
