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

// Designed by Ben Johnston

Ben Johnston is a self-taught designer who grew up in South Africa. What I love about this project, along with a lot of his other work, is how dimensional it is. His experience as an industrial designer has allowed him to create print work that has 3D qualities, and appears to jump right off the page. While is main forte is lettering, he also has some strong branding work, all of which can be seen at benjohnston.ca.
