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

The Arrogant Butcher

// Designed by TUNNELBRAVO

All good ideas start from a sketch. The Arrogant Butcher design process went through a series of sketches and mock ups until they landed on the mark. The Arrogant Butcher offers you the best of everything – seafood, steaks, draft beer, wine and cocktails, comfort food and good company.  The color red seemed like a no brainer for this restaurant that love good food and lively banter.

Anything with the name “Arrogant” better live up to its expectations but in the case of this establishment it seems it comes with a sarcastic twist more than a pretentious title. So the whole identity and menu have this nice regal patina without really trying to come across as stuffy.
