Braz de Pina shared a super complete branding project for a fictional company called HyperCommute. The project was part of an interview process, but for me what is more important to highlight it is the step by step design process, from problem definition, references/inspiration, concepts to the final solution. On top of that, the whole presentation has an impeccable visual design, which highlights the Braz specialization in branding, marketing and more traditional graphic design work.
DEBUT's design team shared a beautiful branding and visual identity project for Alive Parts. With the motto “We believe technology is at its best when it feels alive”, the designers from DEBUT looked from inspiration in the 80s, my favorite decade and by now you know where this is going. The clever idea of making two letters with pixelated parts was genius in my opinion and kept the ID fresh but still with that retro feel.

Organizing such a crucial event during the Covid pandemic’s first lockdown.

In doing a little research for an upcoming product launch (more on that later!) I discovered a moving project within the world of fragrance called Pure Sense. Pure Sense, founded by Ekaterina Zinchenko, is a unique, niche perfume brand in that the fragrances created for it are made by blind people. Thus, each blind participant in Pure Sense project chose a state that, in their opinion, is lacking in a modern person. The result is three fragrances - Freedom, Inspiration and Serenity.
Diego Carneiro shared a branding and packaging design project called Moka Clube - Barrel that hits home for this coffee-loving Brazilian. This, my friends, is real coffee. Twice Brazilian, it is the most unique marriage of coffee + liquor we’ve come across. These are coffees aged in wooden barrels where excellent whiskeys, wines, rum and, of course, cachaça rested before, because nothing is more Brazilian than good coffee and cachaça.

There’s a lot to love about Thais’ design but I have to say the simple graphics, the clever way the symbol was conceived by mixing elements and, especially the manner of creating patterns, which for me really stands out.
