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

Neev Promotional Posters

// Designed by 26 Lettres

Neev is a Jewish-Moroccan stand-up comedian who was born in Montreal, and he was a featured performer during the city's Zoofest festival. He was also the feature of these sophisticated, yet hilarious promotional posters done by 26 Lettres. The two poster designs were displayed throughout the city right next to each other in order to illustrate the many personalities that burst out of the comedian during his shows. I love the way that the disconnected typography abstracts his name, yet is still legible because of the dramatic scale shift. Oh, and in case you were wondering, that awesome color is PMS 812.
