I was invited by Nick Carson, editor at Computer Arts, to participate in the Magazine’s Designer Challenge along with three other designers. Each of us were assigned to execute some designs using the words Earth, Air, Water, and Fire. My particular assignment was to execute four restaurant logos with the mentioned words. Tight deadline (as it usual is in the editorial realm) but a fun project. None of us four had any idea what the other fellow designer’s assignments were. Can’t wait to see what they came up with. I’m sure it’ll be awesome.

Like every year, the guys at Catch NYC asked us to work on some designs for the Yankees Poster Night Game. The day in which every fan finds a poster in his seat at the New Yankee Stadium and hundreds more are given out. In prior editions we have designed posters featuring Jorge Posada, Jason Giambi, Tino Martinez, and Mike Mussina. This year, among other layouts, we’ve executed a couple of stencil-based designs which I’ve enjoyed enormously. No design app or PHSH filter/plugin can even attempt to recreate the awesome effect that can be achieved with color spray The following is some of our contribution to the 2010 edition.

We were assigned to develop the identity, branding and collaterals for the new casual-chic burger spot chef Laurent Touroundel has opened in Downtown Sag Harbor, New York. LT Burger offers a traditional and classic prime quality american burger menu both to eat in and take away. For this typography based identity, we used wood-type for the logo and a wide range of typefaces to spread the american flavor throughout the menus.
Remenart sort of means “art-stirring” in catalan. It’s actually a made up word to describe what these guys really do. They get involved in all sorts of artistic related disciplines such as sound engineering or stand design for trade shows. Here’s the logo and business cards we have designed for them.
So after a long production process, I finally hold in my hands a sample of the BOS1964 Design Book. It looks really nice and beautifully printed, unfortunately the pics I’ve taken of it won’t fully deliver such impression. Bos1964 is a high-end top quality office furniture design firm and manufacturer which combines top-notch technology and traditional manufacturing processes to create really unique and exclusive office furniture. When you look at what they do you really feel like they are the Jaguar of the office furniture world and that maybe Mies would have wanted some of it for his own studio. I’d like to thank Xavi and Eva for their patience and implication in this project.
