Harvey’s is a house diner in Kansas City’s Union Station. Ted Carpenter Creative designed a branding system that consisted of a logo, brand identity, menus, interior and exterior, environmental and apparel graphics. I love the craft feel to this branding and the overall color scheme. The logos and print patterns are both intriguing and beautiful.
”Harvey House Diner was a staple in Kansas City’s Union Station starting in 1914. The diner would greet thousands of travelers as they would arrive from all over the country by train at the historic Union Station. Fred Harvey’s original Harvey House has been long gone, but our new Harvey’s at Union Station is a nod to that historic diner. Despite almost 100 years between the two concepts opening their doors, both the new Harvey’s and the original share the same core values of quality food, quality service and quality company. Brand components consisted of, logo system, brand identity, menus, interior and exterior signage, environmental graphics and apparel.”

Working on my online portfolio! I really wanted a simple design to go with the illustrations and something clear and easy to understand.
Hope you enjoy my work in progress so far!
The image are not final, they’re pretty much fillers, same as the text (Which is in French, sorry!) I sort of want to make an English version too cause I work a lot over the web… but I’ll see in time. I still need to make some corrections, but I think I’m finally satisfied with the overall design.
Criticism (gladly) accepted, I’ll be working on this tomorrow too so I can get it completely done and my twin sister can put it online as soon as she can! I’m so exited, this is such a fun thing to do and prepare!
My type garden
Petra Blahova loves to explore different techniques and ideas. One morning She walked from work and I was inpired by the flowers everywhere so she decided to create a typeface out off them. She love to take on challenges and keep herself busy with awesome typography ideas and beautiful graphic design.
Everyone loves an ampersand
Frivolous but fun, here are some delightful examples that have crossed my path over the last week: (top down)

A Globally Animated Typeface
A couple of months ago I posted about an animated typeface being worked on collaboratively by designers all over the world. The organisers, Animography, have now released the final typeface called Franchise.
Franchise, is a sans serif, all-caps typeface by one type designer and 110 animators. Each animator was asked to pick a glyph and animate it using no more than 4 colours, 25 frames in a 500 x 600 pixel canvas in Adobe After Effects. Within this criteria they had complete freedom to bring their character to life, resulting in a huge ranges of style and techniques.
The final typeface was painstakingly compiled by collecting the assets into a master file and cleaning everything up. You can read more about the process here and you can download the typeface for just a tweet here. The file even contains all the keyframes, expressions and artwork, a real bonus for those budding animators interested in how it was put together.
Animography provides video designers with a growing range of animated typefaces that can be used on all sorts of video projects, such as title sequences, TV commercials, and gig visuals. Output as Adobe After Effects files with each glyph in a separate composition, the typefaces can be customised and scaled without loss of quality.
