designworkplan / Photos / I'm back with a huge load of photos!

Today is the day that designworkplan has come back with new and fresh postings again! For the last couple of months the postings were not frequently at designworkplan and all of my small bits and inspirational pieces moved to my Twitter feed, please follow me on your daily doses of design tweets.

The overall design of designworkplan has changed a bit and the header is set to the new contemporary typeface Axel by Erik Spiekermann. Over the next few weeks the theme will develop more and new functionalities will be added. Please let me know your findings and or suggestions on the recent design development here on designworkplan, thank you for your huge support!

  • Environmental graphic design
