loving the color-filled work of french photographer matthieu venot. he uses color and angle to turn images of buildings into beautiful abstractions. love these minimalist and architectural images.
via it's nice that
meet my new minimalist hero, mr. andrew b. myers. take a look at these photos. yes, people. these are photographs. myers, a canadian photographer based in new york, carefully composes different objects and shoots them in perfectly designed, minimalistic patterns. he shoots these in flat light so that they appear illustrated. so cool.

who said food trucks can't be chic?
take a look at the beautiful branding of swiss design student alexandre pietra. she created a full brand identity for a food truck called "the nordic." and no detail went un-noticed.
pietra has a beautifully minimalistic (and classically scandinavian) design influence here to reflect the scandinavian food truck's simple menu.
she also uses the logo in an interesting way, blowing it up and using it at scale throughout the materials. definitely makes everything feel cohesive while still having certain elements feel unique.
i stumbled across these the other day and went into a glorious rabbit hole discovering the work of italian illustrator jonathan calugi. as much as i love color, there is just something so rich about black and white design that features a single black line. this series is called "into the line" and it's just perfect.
oh man. these are so good.
this brilliant, minimalist series from tano veron captures the essence of famous movies with just blocks of color. crazy good!
made me think about how i would do this with some of my favorite movies.
oh man. i'm in love.
this is the identity design and branding for 1 hotels, a new eco-conscious chain (from starwood) launching properties in manhattan, brooklyn and miami.
the branding is consistent but flexible, clean but not boring, and says a lot with a little. it's just so good.
creative direction is from michael ian kaye and christian cervantes. design is from chris rogers and jules tardy.
these black and white volkswagen ads are kind of perfect. with just the VW logo, and a creative take on negative space, they are able to promote different safety features in the most beautiful, minimal, powerful way.
