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:

Ruell and Ray Denim

// Designed by Fuzzco

I wear jeans almost every day. The right pair of denim is essential to every persons daily life....and thus, the right branding is just as important. Fuzzo does branding right, and in this branding for Ruell and Ray Denim, they combine the perfect feel of high quality and hand craft. I especially love the story and the concept behind this identity:

"The inspiration comes from the brand founder’s family tree. Ruell Cook was a cotton farmer and Ray Harrison was an Air Force pilot. Both are her grandparents and the brand’s inspiration comes from their lives. The jeans are ONE OF A KIND & FOREVER."

With beautiful typography and illustrations, this branding takes Ruell and Ray Denim to another level. When you buy a pair of their jeans, you're investing in a piece of their history. Check out more about Ruell and Ray Denim on their website - also designed by Fuzzo!
