Benetton redesign
Benetton redesign

Have you seen the new identity of United Colors of Benetton? No? Well, it's no wonder, because there is hardly any difference from the old one...

The new "face lift" by Pentagon's Michael Bierut and Daniel Weil is so subtle that one has to question why it has been done in the first place (and why anybody would spend money on this).

But, it shows as well that the identity developed in the 80's is pretty much timeless... and at least it wasn't ruined by the redesign.

Our dearest Canadian Writer Matt Prins has a new project, called Instant Books:

1) to copy the instantaneous and often shite style of blogs and transfer it onto paper, 2) to slow down and make something more “artful” of instantaneous and shite writing, and 3) to force out new material, rather than re-editing the old.

And for your enjoyment, an educational video about hot dogs.

Swiss bank notes
Swiss bank notes

Switzerland, in general, doesn't like to stand out too much. But... not when it's about ca$h. The current Swiss note design by Jörg Zintzmeyer (1995) is famous across the globe.
Now, after twelve years, the Swiss National Bank would like their notes to get a new face and did set out an competition a few years ago. The winner was Manuel Krebs. His design convinced not only visual, but also intellectual. The 1000 Swiss Frank bill (= 620 Euros) is decorated by a skull (design was completed long before Damien Hirst came across) to remember that nothing lasts forever. The 200 Swiss Franks bill shows a close up of the HIV virus. Very nice and thoughtful.
Therefore it was quite a surprise, when the Swiss Note Bank decided to sign the second place winner, Manuela Pfrunder, to get her design ready for print this summer. Her designs are beautiful, no doubt, but the content shows a rather stereotypical view: ski riders, mountains, snow flakes and others... just missing the chocolate bar.
