While perusing the gift shop at the Walt Disney Concert Hall this weekend, I was struck by this quirky book, The Geometry of Pasta, written by Caz Hildebrand and Jacob Kenedy, the former of which is one of five designers of London-based Here Design. The bold illustrative graphic pasta shapes caught my attention, as did the Neutra typeface (one of my current favorite go-to typefaces). After doing more research into Here Design, it looks like the quintet has conquered a lot of other fun graphic works, from branding to packaging to books, interiors, print, products and websites. Some of my favorites are below.
Apparently I’m not the only one who has noticed the book. Imprint blog writer Ellen Shapiro interviewed Hildebrand and Kenedy in an article here, exploring the authors’ love for type and pasta. Whether you love pasta or graphics, check out the Geometry of Pasta site for a cute animation for inspiration.
