Kristín Agnarsdóttir seems to be one of the brightest prospects in graphic design. I recently spotted these beautiful conceptual package ideas via AisleOne.

The simple nature of the packaging is eye-catching and functional. I was impressed to see that this was created by a design student. Check out the rest of her work here.

Bloomberg Businessweek Redesign

Friday, January 14th, 2011

I remember seeing recently an issue of Bloomberg Businessweek featuring the new redesign. I was instantly drawn to its grid system and clean layouts. The cover might seem a bit systematic but it can definitely hold its own. It is flexible enough to allow unique covers to be designed without compromising the consistent look that it has achieved over the past few months.

I’m quite pleased to see that it has adopted a clean and functional design aesthetic, something very rare for American publishers these days.

The people at Teenage Engineering have been around for a while now, but a recent post at Iain Claridge’s blog reminded me of their presence.

I really love their design ideology, presenting clean and simple designs. They have all sorts of products at hand. However, one of their most interesting devices is the OP-1 Synthesizer. If Dieter Rams had designed synthesizers, they would have looked like this.

It seems that Swedish people have an innate sense for good design.
