You may have noticed from some of the articles we’ve posted over the last few week that we used to have a bit of a crush on the now-defunct Studio8. Those guys knew how to design great stuff and were instrumental in shaping some of our (well mine at least) interests in graphic design. But while we were sad they decided to close their doors, we’re thrilled that they’ve all gone off to develop their own practices and are still producing work that gets us pretty damn excited.
Matt Willey, former founder of Studio8 and creative director of Port, has just put his new website online that showcases the best of what he’s been up to for the past couple of years (in his words “a badly edited, non-chronological and incomplete dumping ground of bits and pieces”). As expected there’s some seriously tasty content on there ranging from experimental type design for the likes of Wired, editorial for The New York Times and a whole host of striking posters and promotional material. Matt’s been at the top of his game for a number of years now, but he’s still producing work that feels fresh and exciting – a feat that shouldn’t go without deserved recognition.
