Budapest Public Transport Logos

Budapest Public Transport Logos

The design studio Hidden Characters took on the project to redesign Budapest Public Transportation logos to unify the marks in the whole communication system. We selected some behind the scenes of the process and the final result is really good. Enjoy! For more from Hidden Characters visit hiddencharacters.hu. About the project In the beginning of 2014, Budapest launched a brand new subway line. Together with this major development, the local public transportation supplier also wanted to improve the way of navigating at transportation hubs. This meant creating a system that integrates information and signage for services across all transportation tools. According to this idea, they started to design a unified and extensive signage system cooperating with in-house designers. They realized early that there is no real connection between the marks of the most important public transport lines, and they proposed a tender with Design Terminal inviting Budapest-based design studios to gain a coherent series of logos for Metro (M), Waterborne Public Transportation (D - Danube) and Suburban Railway (H - HÉV) services. Taking part in the tender was a great pleasure and even bigger that we were selected as winners. Since then the new signage system has been widely implemented and the new logos are pretty much all over the city now. Concept As the former logos did not correspond each other, a solution was needed to unify the marks in the whole communication system, thus helping the traveling public to easily find their way. Our concept slightly evokes the patterns of ‘tracks’ and ‘transportation lines’ by simply doubling the lines in each logos at certain parts of the letters, this way referring to the directions and dynamism, just like how lines go next to each other on a map.

Logo Design: Contours Trend

Logo Design: Contours Trend

We keep going through our weekly journey checking out great logos! We're thinking ahead and we want to find new topics, good ones, to share with you guys. Last week we featured the work of Almosh82, and today we're featuring logos with contour trend! LogoLounge, probably the most notorious publishing about logo design, has listed Contours as one of 2015 trends, so here are some logos that I think are inside this trend. Designers set on finding a hybrid between simple one-color iconic symbols and a more complex descriptive illustrative mark have landed on a solution. Replete with gradation and contours, highlights and shadow, yet limited detail to keep the marks just on this side of simplistic. Generally, the mark’s iconic outline serves up enough information to complete the messaging when presented at a smaller scale. A closer evaluation or larger presentation reveals subtle volume delineation that creates a tactile temptation for the consumer." This is just the amount of visual eye candy necessary to lift the logo from a page and create a point of optic differentiation. Some designers might view this technique as a bit to tricky for their liking but time will prove one group or the other right in the end. Although these solutions require halftone and gradation they still convey an economical one-color essence to the public eye. Let’s credit the design direction as moving the conversation forward with solutions that are to the point and not burdened with unnecessary detail." What's your opinion? Do you know any more logos that should be here? Also, if you you'd like to suggest ideas for the next subjects, please, tell me by sending me sending me a tweet: @paulogabriel. Cheers! ;)

Minimalissimo Identity Design

Minimalissimo Identity Design

Italian designer Alessandro Scarpellini takes on the rebranding work for Minimalissimo, a magazine that celebrates the best of minimalism in design from the past and present. For more from Alessandro Scarpellini visit alessandroscarpellini.it. Since 2009, Minimalissimo’s identity was focused on serif typography, specifically the beautiful Baskerville typeface. You may think this was an unusual choice considering serif type is undoubtedly maximal in form, however it helped shape an identity for Minimalissimo, but I suppose you could say that it never felt the most suitable option. With this in mind, we felt there was a need to create a unique identity that not only communicates minimalism, but also closely aligns with our minimalist sensibilities found throughout our design articles. Having already moved towards a logotype a few years ago using a single character, M, we wanted to continue with this concept. So we approached Italian graphic designer Alessandro Scarpellini to design a simple, minimal yet readable logotype. Naturally adopting a sans-serif type, Scarpellini decided, having experimented with a number of typefaces, that Avenir would form the basis of Minimalissimo’s new identity. The logotype was then stripped back and reduced to show only the essence of the character, M. The result is a clean, minimal and relatable identity for Minimalissimo. Less, but better.
