Regular readers will know that our design director Kerry Neesam keeps her finger on the pulse of what’s hot in brand design, sharing what she finds from around the world via LinkedIn. Here are three of her most recent top picks:

Hopkins Restaurant

This has been done predominantly through typography. I love how much movement each design has!”
