Curating the best monochromatic graphic design from around the world.
Pick a color family and get inspired.

About // Topswatch is the only blog dedicated to discovering the best monochromatic design from around the world and sharing it with you. The blog is run by four graduates of Tyler School of Art.

Max Amato never loses his temper, unless he loses a game of ping-pong. Though many designers try to follow in his footsteps, they simply can’t because he has too many shoes. Favorite swatch: PMS 572C. Portfolio: www.maxamato.com

Nicholas Lomboy’s bedhead has inspired many a designer to throw away their conditioner and comb. Preferring the road less traveled, he aspires to skate switch. Favorite swatch: PMS 485C. Portfolio: www.nicholaslomboy.com

Brendan Mcauliffe is our rep from the Pacific Northwest. A world explorer, his favorite method of transportation is his bike, Josie (like the Blink song). Favorite swatch: PMS 651C.Portfolio: http://www.brendanmcauliffe.com/

Justin Nowak spends his free time playing first-person shooters while cuddling with his hamster, Snuggles. An aspiring egg chef, he still has Dominoes on his speed dial. Favorite swatch: PMS 7494C. Portfolio: www.nowakcreative.com

7 Lumens Festival

// Designed by Jérémy Tourvieille

Jérémy Tourvieille is an extremely talented designer and art director from Geneva, Switzerland. The Seven Lumens Festival branding is a perfect example of his work, which to me is best described as controlled experimentation. I love how this project combines loose, expressive imagery with a rigid and simple typographic system. It also is a beautifully consistent identity, true to itself from the exterior walls of the festival venue, all the way down to the website.
