I have a designer crush on Jonas Butenbruch.

I can’t remember how I first heard about Jonas Butenbruch, but two projects later and I’m sold.

According to Butenbruch’s Behance portfolio, the Germany-based designer specializes in art direction, graphic design, and print design. The first of two projects that really caught my eye is DONE, a “personal daily design workout for 2008.” Butenbruch’s promise was simple: “Every day I will flex my design skills by creating one piece in 30 to 60 minutes.” The results include everything “from scrap and sketches to photos, typographic experiments and random creative masturbation.” DONE also includes 12 end-of-month recaps on how his time was spent.

The other project that I can’t get over is a current one, also daily in process, that is surprisingly engaging for its simplicity. Titled Welche Farbe haben wir heute? (or “The Color Spectrum of 2010”), which translates to “Which color have we today?,” the project’s website is quite literally one color per day.

November 10’s daily design idea is be more like Jonas: get committed and embrace color.
