Polpo Restaurant a conceptual Italian restaurant that specializes in Venetian fare with a focus on seafood. Polpo means octopus in Italian and is a staple in Venetian cuisine and a specially of the house.
Playing with historical images that were used in textbooks before the invention of photography created a playful image style in the context of this modern design.

A fantastic design by Richard Marazzi

In Memoriam: Anja Niedringhaus

Anja Niedringhaus, a courageous and immensely talented Associated Press photographer, was killed while covering elections in Afghanistan on April 4, 2014.

An Afghan police officer opened fire on Anja Niedringhaus and Kathy Gannon from the Associated Press in a police headquarters in Khost province, after the women arrived with a convoy of election materials on Friday.

Niedringhaus died almost immediately from wounds to her head, a health official said, and Gannon was taken to hospital with less serious injuries after being shot twice. She later underwent surgery and was described as being in stable condition and talking to medical personnel. Both were veteran correspondents with long experience covering Afghanistan.

Afghanistan, once a relatively safe place to work, has become increasingly deadly for journalists in the run up to the elections. Just last month Swedish-British radio reporter Nils Horner was shot dead in downtown Kabul. Days later Sardar Ahmad of the Agence France Press was gunned down, along with his wife and two children, in an attack on a luxury hotel in Kabul. His youngest son, two-year-old Abuzar, survived several gunshot wounds.

Niedringhaus has long been recognized for her expertise in gaining a subject’s trust and photographing them with a style that is immediately recognizable. Her attention to detail, composition and light come together to not only tell insightful stories but also to create works of art. 

She worked for the European Press Photo Agency before joining the AP in 2002, based in Geneva. She had published two books. She was the only woman on a team of 11 AP photographers awarded the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for breaking news photography.

Glossary of Design Terms

I love these little design booklets by Turkish designer, Volkan Olmez. They were created for presentation at the Turkish Society of Graphic Designers. Each colourful pocket size book describes a common design term such as Amorphous, Contour, Transform or Vector.

"Xoclad is a high-end pastry and confectionery shop located in the Mayan Riviera. In a place bustling with tourist activity, Xoclad needed to communicate the area’s strong Mayan culture in a classy way that could never be called cliché or tacky. First, we gave its name a visual and phonetic pre-hispanic feeling that also conveyed one of the shop’s prime products: chocolate. Then we designed a labyrinth-like pattern reminiscent of antique mayan art and architecture ornamentation. The color palette consigns the brand with a sober, clean feeling that makes it modern and sweet."

Ideas exchanged generate constant inspiration. Different points of view, opposite focus conciliation and comprehension of our own views, complement our success. That is why we open our doors with the best attitude to continuously collaborate with the press and education.

Playing wth type

These caught my eye—simple compositions showing-off typefaces designed by the Copenhagen based design agency, e-Types.

The shop, PlayType, is an extension of the agency, and was the first physical shop in the world, selling typefaces and type related products in 2011. 

As the name suggests, the shop is an entity where the in-house team can play with the letters they’ve designed and create products for design conscious shoppers. They also collaborate with other designers, artists or photographers, sometimes hosting exhibitions.

Simone Øster, the Store Manager told me a little about the shop’s origins:

“When we opened the store, the intention was that it should be a temporary pop-up shop, lasting for one year only—but, after great interest from around the world (including a 6 page spread in renowned magazine, Monocle) we decided to keep the store.

So, what we just thought would be a cool gimmick and way of promoting the type foundry, turned out to be its very own business. Playtype Concept Store has a different, and much wider audience than the type foundry itself.

We have expanded our product list, so not only are we selling posters and mugs, as we did at first,  but also: clothing, iPhone covers, skateboards, bags, books and more. By engaging in collaborations with Danish brands like Soulland and Mismo we have also expanded our customer base and made the Playtype brand known globally.” 

The best selling products are the posters shown above, with ‘g’, ‘C’, ‘N?’ and ‘A7’ being some of the most popular. Right, I’m off to book my trip to Denmark…
