Amazing! Branding project for Realtree by Hammerpress.
“For their 25th year anniversary, we created a branding piece for Realtree, documenting the old process, used by Hammerpress, to print their limited edition posters.”

The Works of StudioFM
⎯ Ciao Dear readers,
I am back from a holiday & fresh of new Enthusiasm and Energy! As part of my online morning routine I stumbled across a Design Studio called Studio FM based in Milano, Italy who are truly creating some amazing design work.
The initial lead came from a young chap called Matteo Gualandris who is working at Studio FM as a Graphic Designer. He posted a couple of magazines on Behance which really impressed me and lead me to dig deeper.
StudioFM specialises in Graphic Design for Print and Online Experiences and have truly impressed me. Their material is exactly down my road: purposeful, precise & clean, no frills. Layouts are very clean with thoughtful use of grid systems, outstanding typography and great use of whitespace. The use of line elements gives their work a clean and controlled touch. Exactly how I love it :)
Their website features very solid work indeed, I am particularly fond of their Riders Magazine Restyling as well as their MCS Project. Check it out!
Enjoy your weekend!
"It seems to be common knowledge among graphic designers: When you need a legible font, pick one with a large x-height! […] It’s pretty obvious how the larger x-height increases the legibility, right? So case closed? […] Well, I don’t think so!"
