Wink Creative 2010 Selected Works

A wonderful gift from good friend Brent Gairy, of Touch Intel, Wink Creative's 2010 selected works book.

I am a rather massive fan of Wallpaper Magazine. It has without a doubt been one of the greatest contributors to the creative person I have become today. Wallpaper Magazine was launched by Tyler Brûlé in 1996 after being shot by a sniper in Afghanistan, not kidding. The magazine was page-for-page one of the best designed magazines that ever graced our planet. In 2007 Tyler launched a new magazine entitled Monocle, dropping much of the overindulgent lifestyle in trade for globalist perspective on international issues the magazine is unmistakably a close relative of Wallpaper.

What does all this have to do with Wink Creative? Tyler Brûlé founded Wink Creative in 1998, the creative brainchild behind all of these magical brands in addition to adding his worldly creative prowess to such brands as Swiss Air, British Airways, and American Express Open.

Whats covered in the book? A visual breath of Wink Creative's work throughout the year of 2010 from logo types to publishing to corporate identity. Defiantly worth adding to your collection. How do you get your hands on one? I'm sorry to say, I have no idea.

Interested in more? Monocle has a podcast, check it out here.
