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:

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:

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:

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:

The Hop Review

// Designed by Jack Muldowney

Jack Muldowney is a Chicago based Graphic designer who specializes in branding. As a side project he runs the Hop Review, a blog that focuses on the booming microbrew scene of Chicago. He states on his website

"Setting out to interview the people behind Chicago's booming craft beer industry, The Hop Review was born. A website and brand still in its early stages of life, THR has already had the pleasure of chatting with several of the brewers, store owners and bar operators that make the microbrew scene tick. Aside from the website, this hop-inspired brand came to exist in the form of business cards, stickers and will soon live on in several other swag items."

The hand done nature of the logo fits in nicely with the small microbrews the blog focuses on.
