Recent London part-time graduate Caden Salon quite fittingly received the peer-nominated prize for best portfolio at the recent London graduate show. Her take on the printed portfolio was really quite unique — presenting her work in a really beautiful bound book format, with a great mix of flat artwork and photographed p...

A truly incredible identity from Bureau Rabensteiner for an Vienna-based photo pro­ducer. The stationery is unlike anything I've seen before - the black varnish fades at body temperature, so when you hold any of the pieces in your hands you leave your own individual imprint. I'd spend all day playing with that busine...

I'm crushing on Vancouver-based studio Glasford & Walker big time. Started in 2007 by an Australian designer and a Canadian producer, their aesthetic is really clean, their typography is always lovely, and the colours are winners. This project in particular really stood out to me. Maybe it's because The Silver Star s...

Beautiful design for Studio Skate Supply located in Kansas. The aesthetic was influenced by the designer's grandfather, who would spend his free time at auctions, bringing bits and bobs home, fixing it up and making it new. Lovely memories and a really striking approach. ...

After Tanya's post the other day about Fontology, here's another great resource based around the wonderful world of typefaces. Search design pieces not by the designer or the colour, but by what font was used! Interesting feedback in the comments section too. Go forth and find some new inspiration. ...

Designers' personal projects are so damn inspiring. I love seeing what sparks an individual's creativity. From Cover to Cover is a fantastic project from Jenny Volvovski (one third of the creative team at ALSO); she is redesigning the covers of books as she fini...

I love invites. Even if it's just a simple paper and envelope deal I'll get excited, but after looking at this selection, sent to the Wallpaper* office for the autumn / winter fashion shows, I think the bar has been set. These are truly invitations that would surpris...
