Hessian

Hessian is an invader, an ode, a pitch to the market, a brand for sale.

Ben Pierrat developed this brand as an experiment for himself - that doesn't mean it doesn't have value for someone else. Ben hopes that value lies somewhere around the $18,000 mark.

There is a great article on Wired about the project.

His thinking is spot-on when he says:
"The core thought with Hessian.tv is that, as designers, we naturally see solutions to problems/opportunities we can’t help but notice in the market. We have concepts that we know are valid and worthwhile, and not only that but we instinctually know how they should be launched, how they should look, how they should work, and who their target audience should be.

HOWEVER, as anyone who has tried building something knows, the actual production and launch of a great idea is incredibly difficult. Not only that, but, as Svpply taught me, launching, leading, growing and managing a product is an entirely different skill set than most designers have or want to have or should be expected to have.

Inversely, there are oceans of MBAs, Managers and Entrepreneurs out there who are passionate and talented at the actual building and leading of companies, but may not actually be great at identifying worthwhile problem/solutions in the market."

Elena Giavaldi

Talented designer and illustrator Elena Giavaldi really knows how to make judging a book by its cover easy. As a book cover designer, she creates very cool, contemporary compositions for some of the best publishing houses in the business. She also manages to put very personal touches on each project, and add a bit of extra interest with unique type choices and very modern, experimental lettering. Other than her expansive covers archive, her portfolio runs the gamut of graphic design, making her an incredibly versatile designer. To keep up with Elena, look for her work in a bookstore near you!

Lotta Nieminen—Design

While most Grain Edit readers know Lotta Nieminen for her extraordinary illustration styles, but she also has an incredibly rich and beautiful design portfolio. Her keen eye for typography and layout design is relatively unmatched, and each project somehow manages to out-do the last. Together, her two portfolios create an exciting mix of work & almost a perfect dichotomy of truly minimal vs. extremely detailed.

Be sure to keep up with Lotta’s current projects on her websitetwitter and on dribbble!

Mads Burcharth

Mads Burcharth

Lots of cool, crisp typographic work from Denmark-based Mads Burcharth. I love his clean, minimal approach to lettering and type design and his ability to add flourishes and interesting details to his work. His style is strong and bold, and has a great flair to it as well.

Estudio Tricota

Estudio Tricota

Great work coming from Argentina-based Estudio Tricota. Shown above is their work for Calma, a music festival — I love the movement in the piece and all of the small, considered typographic details.

They do a good job of maintaining consistency with their previous branding for Calma, creating a new visual aesthetic but keeping some of the elements in place. These posters represent a fraction of their portfolio and capabilities. Check out their Behance for more branding, identity and editorial work.

Fresh work coming from Mr. Brad Woodard in sunny Southern California. Brad’s an accomplished designer/illustrator and an info-graphics whiz to boot. I love his color palettes, form-making and how deliciously his illustration style bleeds into his information graphics. The two play very nicely together.

Currently, Brad is a designer at the very cool design/data vis studio Column Five Media, and a writer for Visual News. And he’s got some prints for sale up in his shop.

Matt Chase

Matt chase

I’ve been a fan of Washington D.C.’s Matt Chase for quite a while now. Matt has a lot of versatility as a designer/illustrator and I’m always impressed with his ability to work with a gamut of styles. He transitions so well between smart identity work, engaging, colorful illustration and on-point lettering.

Be sure to check out his shop, too.
