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:

This is hands down one of the best books I have seen in a long time. This book reaches its full design potential with a "how to use" video. The Bible of Barbecue is a very limited edition book that was only sent out to the best BBQ chefs in the world. This book and video was created and designed by JWT Brazil. The combination of beautiful typography and some of the most original page design are the ingredients for such an amazing book. A page made of salt, a page to sharpen your cutting knife, and even a cutting board for a cover. Please watch the following video and enjoy.
