Somehow there "this" creative freedom where I am keep searching whenever I work on digital projects. The folks from Studio Holt gave me a great reminder of that time.

Hannah Decker published a super cool brand identity project on her Behance profile. It's actually not a new post, it's from last year, but for some algorithmic related reasons I just learned about it yesterday. It's better now than ever, and that's because it's awesome. The project is a concept, I believe, for the Stockholm Sweden 2026 Olympic Games and it's the full brand identity. The best part for me is that it has a more minimal and simple visual language.

Happy Monday gang! Let's check the work from Freshblood Creative Services, a creative studio based in Moscow, Russian Federation. They recently released a brand identity project they worked for Mikron, a leading microelectronic enterprise in Europe. It's actually a redesign, they have kept the previous logo icon but they updated the typeface with a font that is slightly condensed. It's a nice look but I think where this is getting interesting, it's the inspiration welcomed for the quality of the print.

You probably have noticed that we are fans of minimalist brand identity and design work. We believe in the saying "if I had more time I would have written a shorter letter" applies really well to design. Not only design but pretty much everything could be summarized to its core. Business cards have been a major tool for networking and still play a huge role. It's also awesome to see how designers translate the brand into such a small format and yet transmit the same message.
