Made by MENDOAbout the books
Who will recognize a great book better than a bookstore? A bookstore run by graphic designers. Here’s why: at MENDO we get market feedback seven days a week, we are blessed to be surrounded by a bunch of talented, inspiring people – photographers, writers and publishers – and after being a bookstore for more than 15 years, we can easily say we know what book aficionados are looking for. Don’t you agree that initiating, creating and realizing jaw-dropping books now, only comes natural?
A MENDO publication is a well-designed book with visually stunning creative content, browsed by people to be amazed and inspired. The subject-matter is one of our pre-defined curated categories, fashion, photography, interior, sport, lifestyle, food and traveling. In general, a MENDO book is a piece of furniture in itself.
A self initiative design student who had a clever solution
As it is a common habitat in the graphic design branch, starting to build a business can be tough, especially while being a student. Cihan Tamti is a self initiative design student who had a clever solution, with starting to treat Instagram like a graphic design gym and worked on poster design on a daily basis.
Without the constraints of a client, he developed designs with strong, experimental typography and complex compositions that ended up winning competitions and attracting people all over the world. The team of Slanted thought that his works should also be seen on paper and subsequently started a Kickstarter campaign together with Cihan.
Breakout—100 Posters Book shows his love to experiment with letters and customizing fonts, as well as his sense for ambitious cutting-edge graphics.
