Last week we gushed over the magical translucence of his extraordinary photographs – his canny ability to turn the most fleeting of mundane moments into perfect photographs – but this week we just want to chat about Benjamin Schmuck’s lovely stationery.
To complement his exquisite photographic portfolio Benjamin enlisted the talents of Bureau Kayser, a Parisian design studio, to design his personal printed identity. The results are simple and elegant, taking abstract elements of Benjamin’s photography and the hazy colours he’s renowned for and incorporating them into printed materials, all tied together with a neat logo mark. Tasty.
