Minimalist Brand Identity Created from Golden Ratio

Minimalist Brand Identity Created from Golden Ratio

Yaiza Liébana. The brand identity for this psychiatric clinic relays on the layout created from golden ratio, which evokes classical aesthetic perfection and visual calm. This, altogether with the color palette, helps to generate a comfortable homelike feeling. The work was created and shared by Carles Rodrigo, a designer and photographer based in Valencia, Spain.  There's a lot to love about this project. For me just the simplicity and raw look aligned with beautiful typography selection makes it a winner. It's hard to design something nice and well balanced without much to play with. That's what makes these types of project look easy to create but when you try you will see how hard it is. Personally, when I try to do something like that I always feel that it's not complete. There's something missing. I wonder if Carles feels the same when doing this one.  Brand Identity For more information check out: http://www.carlesrodrigo.es/  

Visual Identity and Graphic Design for Kodak

Visual Identity and Graphic Design for Kodak

We are taking a look at this very cool visual identity project for Kodak, a place for music. Designed by Estudio Albino and Roberto De Leon who are both from Guadalajara, Mexico. What I love about this project is first of all the tone they used on the use of the logos across the branding, you totally understand the movement generated by music through the distortion. It's a beautiful understatement and surely is creative on all ends. Enjoy! Kodak is a place of electronic music. The visual identity seeks to reflect the movement generated by music through the distortion of sound and the stimulation of the senses.

Brand Identity for Stockholm 2026 Olympic Games

Brand Identity for Stockholm 2026 Olympic Games

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. Most of the Olympic games identities are full of colors, gradients or organic shapes, this one feels more aligned with the Swedish style. Check out the full project below and also make sure to check out Hannah Decker portfolio at https://www.behance.net/hannahdecker Brand Identity

Brand Identity for Loupedeck by BOND Creative Agency

Brand Identity for Loupedeck by BOND Creative Agency

There's something about brand identity projects that have a dark theme. I know that it might be personal preference but black business cards or stationary definitely adds an elegant/upscale look. The Loupedeck work done by BOND Creative Agency is a great example of that. Loupedeck is a photo editing console for Adobe Lightroom. Bond created the identity and website for the start-up to help build their business. Bond’s agile and efficient process for identity and web creation allowed Loupedeck to quickly launch their product to the market. The public website features e.g. a blog, video tutorials and a support page, ensuring that visitors get all the information they need about the product. The webshop was built as a custom reusable WordPress plugin that’s based on React, Redux & Shopify SDK. This solution makes it possible to turn any WordPress page into a lightweight Shopify Store with a few clicks. Check out the website: loupedeck.com Photography: Kaapo Kamu Brand Identity

Behind the Art Direction & Brand Identity of Blade Runner 2049

Behind the Art Direction & Brand Identity of Blade Runner 2049

Seriously bummed that the movie Blade Runner 2049 didn't perform well as expected. With a settlement of a high score from most well-known movie blogs and critics out there but still wasn't enough. On the other hand, I was always intrigued by the team who collaborated on the art direction & whole brand identity; behind such a great movie and at this scale as well. We are taking a look at Stanley Sun and his team over at Concept Arts Studios. Stanley Sun is working at Concept Arts Studios as their Senior Art Director. You should definitely check out his Behance for more movie projects like Dunkirk, Kong: Skull Island and more. Over the past 16 months we designed the movie logo, directed photoshoot concepts, and spent countless hours in Photoshop creating keyarts for marketing. Ranging from print materials like magazines and movie posters to digital/social sharable contents like Penn Station motion wall takeover and Snapchat. Hope you like it!

Elegant Brand Identity for the Fashion Brand SOIA

Elegant Brand Identity for the Fashion Brand SOIA

Nere Oria is a graphic designer from Deba, Spain with a very strong portfolio in visual and brand identity. I was quite surprise to see the projects she shared on her Behance profile. There's not a lot of information about them but the images speak for themselves. For the SOIA project I love how Nere explored a simple color and make the whole system work fine with it. I also have to say that the business card sometimes looks almost impossible to read. That aside, the minimal look and the elegance work quite well for a handmade fashion company.  Check out after the break the SOIA brand identity project including collaterals and other unique and beautiful applications.

Brand Identity: New York Women's Surf Film Festival

Honoured to be sharing this brand identity project for the New York Women's Surf Film Festival. Into their 5th annual festival, their goal is to celebrate the filmmakers and female wave riders who live to surf, highlight their sense of adventure, connection to the ocean and more. Designed by Shanti Sparrow, it was greatly inspired by the movie by its aesthetics, also we can witness the work from Sarah Lee that we've featured in the past on ABDZ for her underwater photography. Get inspired! Shanti Sparrow is an Australian-based designer, illustrator and dreamer living and creating in New York, USA. Love the fact that Shanti would work on projects for not-for-profit clients that create awareness and raise funds for important humanitarian, environmental and research-based causes. The branding design for the 5th annual film festival was influenced by iconic retro surf culture and the nuanced aesthetics of contemporary film.

Illustration & Brand Identity: Brand Refresh for Mutual Attraction

Illustration & Brand Identity: Brand Refresh for Mutual Attraction

About a week ago, we've featured the latest work from Radim Malinic with the branding project for Inhere. This week, he is back again but with a project in collaboration with Bristol-based Craig Minchington. It's a refresh that involves brand identity and illustration for Mutual Attraction. A dating agency and matchmaking service that needed some love to share their expertise for everyone in the name of love. Radim and Craig both have similar skills but for this project, Radim was in charge of the creative direction & design. And Craig was behind the 3D modelling, I am digging the overall project especially where you can clearly see the style from both designers. Collaboration work between Radim Malinic, a freelance creative director, graphic designer and speaker from London and with Craig Minchington who is also in the same field but based in Bristol, UK. They have worked together on several projects including the Harnham Salary Guide (2016) featured on ABDZ. Mutual Attraction is a London dating agency and matchmaking service. Mutual Attraction is all about meeting people face to face, in the flesh and stepping away from the screen. Dating in the real world, with real people, looking for real love. Refreshingly simple yet effective.
