Welcome to the 8th issue of Inspired By. I saw a lot of nice thing this week. Let’s get to it...
👨🏿 Kiwanuka Album Art
Remember Michael Kiwanuka from issue #4? His new album is great (one of the greatest albums of the decade even) but have you seen his logo? It’s set in Motter Ombra, a font designed by Othmar Motter in 1973, which I used at the 🔝 of this issue.

📘 Anton’s Design Books
Anton Reponnen, co-founder of design studio Anton & Irene, shares his personal selection of design books. A pretty long list with quite a few books I didn’t know yet, handy!
Design Books - A Personal Selection / by Repponen
Personal selection of favorite design books collected over time - by Repponen.
Books are important. Design books encapsulate works of an artist or a designer in a matter that digital can not do just yet. People who put together design books, especially good ones, put a lot of effort into them and it shows. Books show off work in a totally different manner than the screen does. Books educate, inspire and make you care about the work more. If you like a certain designer it’s important to support them by buying their books. What you see here is my personal selection of design books that I love, books that I cherish and return to from time to time.
