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:

Limelight Sports

// Designed by Studio Blackburn

Studio Blackburn brings us this branding project for Limelight Sports, a boutique agency specializing in sporting events and campaigns. The simple typographic approach may have seemed somewhat lifeless if not for the neon green that shocks this design full of vitality.

"A unique facet to their offer is that they have created apps so that competitors and participants in their events can engage with their friends via social media. You can lie on your sofa and spot where your friend is on a marathon course on your smart phone."

Limelight Sports is in charge of some pretty incredible events including SwimBritain, Nike She Runs 10km, and the London Duathlon. If you are interested in Limelight Sports or just  great web design check out their site here.
