TGIF, and TG the long, sober, skint, cold, frankly depressing month of January is out the door to make way for the shorter, yet still pretty freezing February. What better way to celebrate than with six rad design projects? Yes, we popped in a bonus one this week, just for you, dear readers. For more along these lines (and so many others) follow along all day, every day on Instagram @AIGAeyeondesign, Facebook, and Twitter @AIGAeyeondesign.
Designer Efil Türk, founder of Finemade Studio in Turkey, recently got in touch with a lovely project that exemplifies minimalism well done. Türk created the cover for a book called Eloquence, which uses a stark white backdrop and purely typographic standpoint to create something that’s striking yet understated. “Eloquence is the magnificent, elegant and fluent use of language,” says Türk. “It is primarily the power of expressing strong emotions in striking and appropriate language, thereby producing conviction or persuasion. The cover is designed with strong typography that reflects the meaning of the word ‘eloquence’; powerful, persuasive and elegant.”
