Not only are Markus Dreßen’s book designs great, the website is even better. The site is built with Google Maps so you can pan around easily. Cheers to non-scrolly bars.

Awhile back, I had done a post on the design studio, Bunch, and their collaborative approach to creating a new identity to themselves. Well, the book has arrived.

And I was very excited to see that my contribution had been published. Thanks Bunch.
