"The logo is four letterforms drawn from two different perspectives.  The letters are freestanding forms designed to represent IKEA’s furniture in a room, showing the ability to mix and match with different angles, styles, and perspectives. The logo is organic, just like IKEA, it changes from a black line to a colored one to fit its context. The rest of the identity is based around the four primary colors (all sampled from current IKEA ranges) and the idea of assembly. The logo is often split up across several different elements (business card, and lanyard) which requires interaction to assemble and create the logo - exactly what IKEA is all about. "

Joe Ling is a second year Graphic Design student at Norwich University of the Arts. He has a particular passion for print design, editorial design, branding, and analogue/digital photography.

"A book designed to reflect on secrets of the story. Commentary by the author, explanation and annotation of illustrations are printed with UV ink, which is only visible under UV light. The binding is designed in a way that the attached UV-lamp could fit inside the book, but at the same time it can be removed and used to explore hidden messages."

Marton Borzak is a graphic designer from Hungary, currently studying and freelancing in Copenhagen, Denmark doing a graphic design internship at RoAndCo Studio in New York City.

Campton: The new font from Rene Bieder.

Rene Bieder the master designer behind Quandon, Gentona, Canaro and other lovely fonts, is launching a new geometrical Typeface derivated from Canaro: Campton.

Campton is a simple sans serif with a geometric skeleton, based on the mid to early twentieth century visual trend of achieving neutrality. Although, there are a lot of typefaces focusing on similar principles, tries to find its niche in the field of anonymous typefaces by combining simplicity with a subtle friendliness. It is perfectly suited for graphic design application ranging from editorial and corporate design via web and interaction design through to product design.

You can buy this font with 84% off here (you won’t regret it, is a very professional font the real cost is $250): http://myfonts.us/D48xEE
