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:

Student Work: Woody Harrington

// Designed by Woody Harrington

Woody Harrington, now Heads of State designer was once a student at Tyler School of Art. At Tyler, Woody was assigned a project title Mammal. The goal of this project was to "explore a human condition." Each student had complete freedom with the direction of the project and could work on any type of condition that they desired.

"Identity and campaign for Mammal, a fictional organization that puts on exhibitions focusing on different aspects of the Human Condition. I created an exhibition named Connect : The Age of Technology, which not only informs members of the older generation how modern technology could benefit them, it also teaches them basic technological skills. Includes a logo, identity, poster series, catalog (Large Print Edition), and an animated video teaser. "
