These prints by 'Sonnenzimmer' -- the Chicago-based studio of Nick Butcher and Nadine Nakanishi -- are an interesting combination of typography, printmaking and general graphic design. The studio, which has been around since 2006, hand-makes posters, books, and music packaging, all of which are printed in-house.

The work of Sonnenzimmer is intriguingly minimalistic despite its variety of colors and in the use of lines. The prints also have a gentle feeling about them that goes along with the current theme in graphic design of smooth, sleek imagery. Even the more complex designs seem rather subdued, although this may be in part due to the often neutral and matte color palette. The aesthetically pleasing nature of the designs coming out of Sonnenzimmer studio is refreshing, especially when you consider they design album covers.
