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.

We would like to share this branding and visual identity by Alaa Tameem and his work for Two12 Studios.

Editorial Design has being around for a long time and we really do enjoy that sometimes we see projects that takes to another level OR even where you just gotta spend a couple more minutes to admire at the details.

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.

Reboot Capsule Hotel - Branding and Visual Identity

Reboot Capsule Hotel - Branding and Visual Identity

I can’t help myself to really enjoy the concept of staying in a capsule hotel, I had my experience during my trip to Japan. What was the most interesting is the fact that you are totally submerging yourself to the unknown, free to the hotel experience and also the language for the case of my past story. For the case of this particular hotel, giving the users the most friendly user experience as possible to keep the simple circulation of operations. Let’s take a look at the work from Kevin Renaldy Candra who is a graphic designer based in Shanghai, China. He worked on the identity, branding and web design for a capsule boutique hotel called REBOOT located in Singapore. The design layouts shared a common path for the users to easily navigate through the steps and stationery. Reboot is an Capsule Boutique Hotel in Singapore led by multicultural team. We were asked to create an identity that is both friendly and dynamic, and redefine their website. Reboot came to us in need of some fresh new branding and an equally creative online presence. As fans of their successful Capsule hotel in Singapore, we were delighted to help out.   More Information via Behance.

uSound - Branding

uSound - Branding

Currently working with a client on a redesign and surfing around for inspiration as part of the process. I stumbled across this very nice project about a redesign and what interests me the most is about the before and after from the previous logo. I do agree that a design is never finished and it’s the same feeling with a logo depending again on what is the purpose. It changes with time, I mean no matter how long sometimes it’s great to give a refresh. Let’s take a look at the work from Hermes Mazali who is a graphic designer based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I really love the colour palette on this project, what do you think? uSound is an app that allows you to boost your hearing. It is specially designed for people with hearing loss.

Branding: Caramello - Gellato & Pastisserie

Branding: Caramello - Gellato & Pastisserie

Caramello - Gellato & Pastisserie is a branding and art direction project shared by the folks over at Collettivo Mare, including Leonardo Schiavina and Luca Cammarata. The design plays with modularity and patterns to create something unique and playful. I feel that modular patterns sometimes result in stark and, for lack of better word, boring visuals but this project proved me wrong. It feels classy, I believe the typography choice was responsible for that. The serif font balances the design with a bit more organic form. Caramello is a new concept cake and ice cream shop settled in Manchester. The idea behind the concept is create a fresh and modular pattern as a main related communication, mixing different shapes, pastel colors and copper color reminds the caramel one. Branding Collettivo Mare is an independent design collective born in late 2015, working between Manchester and Barcelona. Founded by Leonardo Schiavina and Luca Cammarata.

Kyoto Wok-Cafe - Interior Design & Branding

Kyoto Wok-Cafe - Interior Design & Branding

Today, we would like to share this Interior Design and Branding project from an asian food cafe based in Rostov-on-Don, Russia. Behind this project, we’ll have a collaboration from teams in interior design & architecture, in identity & graphic design, in print design and in photography. All together to bring a space inspired by the stylish palette from Japanese cuisine. From my perspective, I love how the light comes in during the day that highlights the chairs and floor. It creates such an atmosphere and for the branding; they kept a minimal approach to the design and like how the takeout is that one thing that differs from the rest of the stationery. What do you think? Kyoto is an urban asian food cafe based in Rostov-on-Don, Russia. The café has 3 areas: there are contemplation, communication and food zones. The interior is based on contrast combinations of textures; the color scheme is a stylized dish palette of traditional Japanese cuisine.

When I saw this project shared by Yuri Lence on Behance, first I thought, that is a good looking product but I didn't know what it was about. Looked like a fitness tracking.

Doble Veta - Visual Identity & Branding

Doble Veta - Visual Identity & Branding

The project we are featuring today is mixing two things that we dearly love: Architecture & Branding. I mean what’s not love about this beautiful combination. Speaking of beautiful, we are taking a look at this visual identity and branding called Doble Veta made in the city of Monterrey, Mexico. Designed by Enrique Larios and Cursi Estudio, they have worked this mixture of colours that goes very well together along with a logo concept that clearly shows the idea and meaning of the name with a 3D finishing touch.

Branding Project: L² Studio

Branding Project: L² Studio

L² is a branding design project created by the two young creative graphic designers, that happened to be twins, for their studio. One of the biggest issues I've always had is to design something for myself or in the past for my design studio. Working for clients or products is easier than designing your own portfolio. Krisztián Lakosi and Lakosi Richárd simply did an amazing job with the branding for their studio. It's super simple but it does look very classic. The L² studio was formed from the collaboration of two young creative graphic designers, also twins. The exponent in its name refers to the effect of cooperation: working together as a team we can achieve a lot more than we could do alone. The graphic designers of L² believe in deliberate, smart design, they built their own identity from the simplest elements possible – from a descriptive symbol and an intense color.
