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

Balkan Floods

// Designed by Cause Works

Balkan Floods comes to us as the first (hopefully of many) Cause.works project. Cause.works is working on creating a platform for anyone to use towards their own charity. They create and test templates that anyone can pick and apply to their won awareness campaign, Balkan Floods being the first. The photographs and images explaining the extensive process in creating this project especially stand out to me. The time taken to hand paint the edges, silkscreen the prints and stamp all the cards is well worth it when you look at the finished project.

“Under the Balkan Floods banner a number of products will be collected like t-shirts, prints and artwork which will be sold and the proceedings donated to the Red Cross, to be used for the rejuvenation of areas devastated by the floods.”
