Segal Centre Campaign Launch image

Last night, our team hit up the Segal Centre for Performing Arts to celebrate 10 years of Segal Centre, and 30 years of theatre in one incredible place. The lobby was filled to the brim with proud supporters, theatre goers, the arts community, and famous faces! For the second consecutive year, Design Is Yummy had the privilege of collaborating with the Segal Centre for Performing Arts on their season graphics. With the 2017-2018 theatre season marking its 10 year anniversary, we excitedly took on the 6 upcoming production graphics, program book and celebratory marketing materials. Our goal was simple: make this year’s campaign special, engaging all the while topping our successful award-winning work from last year. (Sounds simple enough, right?) Starting the lineup this ...

Le Refuge image

This year’s IT thing to photograph and obsessively post on Instagram is Le Refuge, a pink “jungle” bed installation designed by artist Marc Ange at the Wallpaper* Handmade exhibition space during Milan Design Week. Over 3,000 posts were uploaded on Instagram referring to it as “magical” and a “fairy tale”. The artist Marc Ange calls it “a place where one finds comfort and peace. It is the projection of a childhood memory. Its large leaves form a shelter under the sun, away from reality, just like those of the imaginary jungle that grows in the room of a child who seeks escape.” We can’t resist these giant pink metal leaves and the beautiful shadows it creates. We need one in our ...

Illustrating Smart Cities image

We love illustrating…almost as much as we love respecting our planet and keepin’ it green. Our clients, Realterm Energy, are leading providers of energy-efficient, turnkey LED street lighting solutions for cities. We’ve been their go-to design team for quite some time and were thrilled to create these custom icons and illustrations to be used in their Smart City initiatives.

Bad Vibes video

Bad Vibes from Michael Marczewski on Vimeo.

Nous sommes les premiers à se fâcher contre un appareil qui ne fonctionne pas comme nous le voulons ou comme il se doit. Cela peut parfois devenir physique. Cette réaction non justifiée de notre part de traiter les appareils comme des êtres vivants, comme s’ils allaient s’excuser ou corriger leur erreur…, est souligné dans le court-métrage Bad Vibes. Cependant ce sont les électros ménagers qui se révoltent et s’en prennent à l’utilisateur. Les couleurs riches, la musique entrainante et la tension qui monte en font un amusant suspense qui vous surprendra.

“Fee, Free or Flee” – Understanding When to Charge image

P.S.A. for all designers or creatives – if you’ve ever been confused about whether or not you should charge a specific client, or if you’ve ever asked yourself “How do I tell them ‘no’ without making things aWkwArd?”, then pay attention because the following can help clarify how to go about your decision making, and ultimately simplifying your life. *thumbs up* The Association of Registered Graphic Designers recently launched a website to help us all in understanding when you should charge, when you shouldn’t, and when you should just peace out. Fee, free, or flee takes you through an interactive questionnaire to better understand when to do what when it comes to different clients, organizations, and employers.

Design Fail – The Washington Post Express image

And so it begins folks…the first design fail of 2017 we’re blogging about. Fresh into the new year and we’re already shaking our heads at The Washington Post Express illustrated cover story on the Women’s March on Washington. The intention was to use the Greek symbol for Venus (a circle and cross) – commonly used to represent women. Instead, the symbol for Mars – or the symbol representing men – was featured. Many are calling this a “symbolic mistake” rather than an accident. Audiences took to Twitter to share their reactions; some suggested the cover indicates systemic bias, while others suggested The Washington Post Express hire more women in their editing department. The publication later apologized for the cover, releasing a new one with the revised ...
