It was one of our great brand crushes of 2015, Blacklist prints don the walls of our agency and their dreamy messages inspire us everyday.
Blacklist is a design studio based in Sydney, Australia. Founded in 2008 by husband and wife Nathan and Jaynie Johnson, who produce an amazing range of art prints, stationery and paper goods.
Originally Blacklist was a client-based design studio but it has now evolved into an international gift and stationery brand, stocking in over 200 stores worldwide. Products are designed in-house and feature distinctive hand lettering and design style.
Nathan worked in magazines for years before he started Blacklist Studio and with typography being integral to magazine content production it was in mag land that he developed his passion for the look and feel of characters, digits and words. Mixing great typography with contemporary design is one of the many layers that make up a good brand or a strong campaign.
We couldn't agree more.
"The strongest brands have many layers under a strong flag, that's how Nike can have 100 designers on staff but still use many different elements to make one brand”
Nathan Johnson, Blacklist
