Branding and Visual Identity: Grindal & Patrick

Grindal & Patrick is a branding and print design project shared by Mildred & Duck on their Behance profile. It's a simple branding for a law firm, but that doesn't mean it's ordinary. In the end it's all about the presentation and I think Mildred & Duck do an excellent job at focusing on the details of the print quality, paper, emboss and colors. I am a fan of this type of project because at first it seems easy to be done, but when you try, you realize that it's much harder than you assumed. In my case, most of the times, when I try to create something simple, there's always this feeling of that design is not complete, something is missing. Anyways, check out this beautiful branding project. Grindal & Patrick is a law firm that take a unique and modern approach to their practice. We created a visual identity to personify the firm’s philosophy of transparency and clarity, using a color palette that is contradictory to those typically seen in the industry. The resulting identity is warm and approachable, with letterpress finishes and tactile paper stocks, balanced with a simple and honest visual language that reflects the Grindal & Patrick ethos.

Branding and Visual Identity: ISEM® (B-side @Interbrand)

ISEM® (B-side @Interbrand) is a branding and visual identity project shared by Jon Orta on Behance. There's not much information about this project, however I love the graphic patterns and the rationale behind them. I also have to highlight the simplicity and elegance of the system created. From the graphic concept to the end result you can see clearly the designer's process and thinking. Simply beautiful. Jon Orta is a graphic and strategist brand consultant. He thinks the separation between strategy and design is an artificial gap, brand strategy must wire almost simultaneously into every creative and graphic decision. For the past 13 years he's worked at Sol Consultores (Mexico City), Interbrand (Madrid), Branward (Barcelona) & Lambie-Nairn (Mexico & Central America).

Branding and Packaging Design: Milk

Branding and Packaging Design: Milk

Milk Packaging is a packaging design, branding and graphic design project shared by Erik Musin on his Behance profile. I have seen and posted quite a few packaging design projects for milk carton but this one from Erik is probably the coolest. At least it's the most elegant in terms of simplicity and clever by the way he uses the pink color for the lid. There's not much to add from my side in terms of description, you have to check it for yourself, so just scroll down and enjoy it. The goal was to develop a sing/emblem and a package. I ran into a situation that I always forget to close or even lose cap of a package,so the product often become spoiled. It was kinda like paranormal activity to me. But I don't want to accept this so I put myself a task to fix that problem . I took as a basis a sign,designed by me - it was a simple form of a circle, because I want to represent the simpleness and functionality, so the cup of milk could be opened and closed in one motion, and without twist-off caps Erik is a  a freelance graphic designer based in Saint-Petersburg ( Russia ), focused on illustration, lettering, logos , branding.

Branding: Porter the Kitchen Bar

Branding: Porter the Kitchen Bar

We would like to share this branding project by Erik Musin for a kitchen bar named Porter. Like mentioned below, his 3d/cgi approach adds a unique style to his stationery work also for a presentation. Something that particularly caught my attention was the attention of details on his work for the visual design of what’s outside the restaurant with the signage and vinyls. It’s a small detail in the process but it does define the professionalism of Erin’s experience. Published on Behance is the work from Erik Musin who is a designer currently based in Saint-Petersburg, Russian Federation. Throughout his freelance work, Erik works mainly in graphic design, branding and art direction. I really enjoy his 3D/CGI approach to his work, it makes everything standing out from the crowd. PORTER – dark beer with characteristic wine smack, strong aroma of malt and saturated taste at which at the same time there are both a sweet, and bitterness. Also the name comes from a look a stake — the porterkhaus-stake which is cut out from a lumbar part of a back in the field of a cutting rib-steak. The name is associated with England – the homeland of beer and a stake.  

Packaging design and branding: Endorfina

Packaging design and branding: Endorfina

Endorfina is a packaging design, branding and graphic design project shared by Łobzowska Studio on their Behance profile. There are a lot of things to highlight about this beautiful project but I will try to focus my comments on the visual design. The mix of paint brush texture with simple typography against it is quite elegant. The font looks like to be Futura and it works quite elegantly in this context, especially because the brush strokes really add a lot depth to the design.  The package was designed for chocolate with olives and herbs, quite a mix I had to say but visually they definitely look delicious.  Credits: Graphic design: Marysia Markowska, Karolina Pamuła Package shape: Magdalena Falkiewicz Photography: Aleksander Karkoszka   Packaging design and branding

Branding & Visual Identity: Drap Agency

Branding & Visual Identity: Drap Agency

Starting off this week with a branding & visual identity project by Mireldy Design in collaboration with Drap Agency from Croatia. With an attractive colour scheme, we are getting charmed with an iconography with thick lines and how they are treated from the business cards to brand gear as well. I also appreciate the additional colour used on the web design to create a contrast from the two main colours used. What do you think? Published on Behance  is a collaboration work with a team that goes from an Art Director to UX/UI including the client’s. Drap Agency is a studio based in Zagreb, Croatia. The basic idea was to make a visual identity that will unite (on the one hand complementary and on the other hand opposing) personalities of Drap agency. The logo is a compact typographic solution. It frames the playful line forms that fills its body. This way the mentioned opposing personalities are unified in a compact unique form. At the same time the shape of the logo leaves room for modular intervention. Out of its basis we established a system and created the entire visual identity.   Credits Art direction / design / illustrations: Imelda Ramović UX / UI: Filip Gjurin Photographer: Domagoj Kunić Web development: Danijel Milišić, Bojan Petković, Ivan Begović / DRAP.agency

Branding & Visual Identity: 7Cycle

Branding & Visual Identity: 7Cycle

Let us share this branding & visual identity project for 7Cycle, a cycling studio that aims to make the best of a short workout of exercises and where it gets interesting; a rave-like atmosphere to switch it up. Behind the brand, the design has been done by ACRE, with the subtle gradient happening and hard to achieve on print. I would say the fact that the print can glow in the dark is quite a nice touch and very beautiful. ACRE  is a design house located in the heartlands of Singapore. They are focusing their work on branding, experience, interior design and product design. Two different moods were expressed in the interiors – areas of intensity and calm. For the workout studio and stairwell, we lit the space with black light and neon elements to invoke a more intense atmosphere and experience. Peranakan motifs in neon was employed to create a pop-art aesthetic on the stairwell, juxtaposed with the same motifs employed on the windows albeit in white. In contrast, the ambience in the showers, juice bar and reception space is light. The intention of the gesture was to promote a calm atmosphere for community, conversation and relaxation after a rewarding day’s work in the gym.  

Branding: Bubba Handmade Croquettes

Branding: Bubba Handmade Croquettes

We are sharing this branding project by Skinn Agency where they have worked on a very desirable and delicious food element that we all love. Handmade croquettes which means nuggets from French language. With this new uniform direction, the approach with a typographic logotype and strong photography work makes Bubba very conservative and but at the same time classy which makes it the right contrast with their brand. Skinn Branding Agency  is an agency based in Brugge, Belgium. They focus their work on branding, graphic design and print design but sharing their passion at the same time for design and love for typography. Branding for Bubba’s handmade, high-quality croquettes. For over two decades, Bubba has been creating a range of artisanal croquettes for the hotel, restaurant, and catering industry, as well as domestic caterers, fishmongers, etc. After a thorough analysis, skinn branding agency developed a new look & feel with a uniform line in every touchpoint within the brand. This way, we could fully prep Bubba for the modern food market. The adapted logo combines an artisanal, coarse structure with a hand-written font. Thanks to the baseline “Croquettes handmade in Belgium”, we claim our concept through the entire communications chain. In short, a brand creation that better reflects our client’s corporate personality.

Branding and Visual Identity: KKAW

Branding and Visual Identity: KKAW

KKAW is a branding and architecture project shared by Amanda Rybicka. It's a simple, yet elegant example of a visual identity construction focus on typography to create a strong brand. We said in the past that for some reason the architecture subject gives to designers the opportunity to simplify forms and explores reduction like any other industry. It seems to be the norm for projects like that, but still they are very inspiring, at least in my opinion, because the hardest thing is alway to create a minimalist design that doesn't feel ordinary. I believe Amanda achieved that. Amanda Rybicka is a graphic designer focus on typography, photography and, of course, design. She is based in Katowice, Poland.
