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 Pie Hole

// Designed by The Social Type

This little cafe is more than just good coffee and gourmet pie, it also a work of art. This identity is a very good example of how the color purple can really bring out the beauty in any company brand.

"Our mission for The Pie Hole exists today to provide our customers with a great cafe experience. We believe this experience first starts with great pie and coffee, sourcing primarily local high quality ingredients and custom roasting organic and ethically grown coffee beans to demanding specifications. "
