10 Penneth is a collection of 10 short-essays on Graphic Design written and designed by Craig Oldham of Music. It’s an educational day-glo booklet, namely for students of Graphic Design, and is available from his website —free of charge. (£3.50 P&P… well worth it in my book). Hope to see you all ordering one of these over next few weeks.

The Italic Room
The objective of this project was to create an installation in the hallway on the fourth floor of Marienstraße 1 in Weimar Germany, which was unique for its parallel slanting walls. The installation employed the language of graphic design to appeal to this audience to draw the attention of the students from the Bauhaus University back to the extraordinary architecture of the building. Fittingly dubbed “The Italic Room”, physical italic type titled the space and was coupled with simple geometric rectangles of various sizes to further emphasize the slant of the wall. The white color of the installed structures was employed to draw attention to the space rather than to the work itself. The result was highly successful, as when people walked through the hallway, they would lean to one side as the shapes pulled them into the tilt of the walls. It was an installation that was thoroughly enjoyed by those who experienced it as it altered their perception of the space around them.

“The identity for micro-brewery Ribe Bryghus should have characteristics which felt like the beer; handmade and full of taste. The result is the logo and beer-labels made with a custom typeface in colors according to the content. The look and feel is contemporary and classic at the same time with the simple use of typography and colors. The ingredients-list, bar code ant other information is placed on the left and right sides of the label in order to be “invisible” from the front.” … more images here
