Backgrounds of lightly-colored hues abound in this week’s Friday Likes with work from the UK, Russia, and Greece.

Potwash Josh

The task for this student project was to “make a seemingly un-brandable field of work appear extremely professional.” Preston, UK-based Sam Sharples chose the field of washing pots for fictional industry superstar “Potwash John”.

Baking goodies from her home in Athens, Greece, Elina Smith’s logo is as charming as a baby cupcake. Mixing an oven with a roof’s house, the message couldn’t be clearer: homemade. It’s not a perfect logo, it’s perhaps a little too thick, with some of the corners getting a little mushy but it’s a real tasty idea. The logo and identity, designed by local designers George Strouzas and Konstantina Yiannakopoulou, are printed on lightly-colored hued papers and is complemented by an illustration of lots of big buildings, which seem like another project altogether but I guess they do sort of help offset the little house as something special among the city’s bustle.
