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:

Winters Wedding Invitation

// Designed by Nate Harris

Who says that wedding invitations have to be expensive? These beautiful Victorian-inspired wedding invitations were created by the talented designer & friend of mine, Nate Harris. It is amazing that the only tools Nate needed to produce these invitations were a laser printer and some die-cuts. I love the simple two color illustrations and typography used throughout.
