Always With Honor are one of those frustratingly talented studios capable of effortlessly turning out thoughtful, considered design and illustration for clients as international and massive as Nike and as small as Boke Bowl, their local noodle bar. This scalable approach to clients comes to bear on their aesthetic choices too. Their vector graphics can be transformed from hard-hitting monochrome icons to a playful herd of animals (like the ones below) with the simple addition of a few colours, and yet still maintain that signature Always With Honor vernacular.
Their most recent project is a collaboration with Scribble Tone, which has seen them channeling their efforts into the creation of a custom flag-based typeface that turns words into shapes and patterns to be layered into bespoke flag compositions. The entire font only costs $25 but means you can create your own unique work in the studio’s signature style. And if you’re not that technologically-minded they’ve created an analogue version out of wooden blocks too. What lovely guys.
