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

Wired Magazine Store

// Designed by Mother

Wired is by far one of my favorite magazines to read  because they put relentless energy into designing (some would say over-designing) every square centimeter of their page layouts. So I'm not surprised at the level of sophistication of their pop-up store collaboration with Mother in New York. Unfortunately I missed the wall-sized interactive displays, custom furniture, and space age shopping inventory by about 2 years since it was open around Christmas time in 2012...still, check it out, it's an annual thing so now we can all look forward to next year's store.
