We would like to feature the work from Matheus Gomes who is a graphic designer and art director based in São Paulo, Brazil. We are showcasing more specifically his project for Bente Tattoo Studio. Founded in July 2018 by Bente Berg, a tattoo artist where the studio is based in Bergenhus, Bergen, Norway. Combined with photography, the graphic design is clean with an introductory serif font which is pretty unique for a tattoo artist. I must admit the photography really sets the tone really well.
Therefore, all visual elements combined with photography art direction create a result brought up in a classic visual communication. As for the materials used in stationery, (torn) cardboard is employed to represent the imperfection part, and put together with its texture, it is an abstract representation of Norway's hills and nature setting. Moreover, for the visual identity, the typeface designed by Dreams Office was opted to bring to life to the whole identity system for its precise lines, classic aesthetics, and slightly imperfect curves. Everything folding and unfolding what, why, and who the studio is.
