Futura . is a design studio based in Mexico and they shared an awesome and very colorful brand identity project for Cafe Buho, a coffee shop located in Chile. They took inspiration from urban art and the Chilean muralist movement. Their reinterpretation is based on the "costumbrista" art and in the style of the streets and history of this country. They project it by elevating the coffee process, from the farmer who sows and harvests, as well as all those involved, to the customer who drinks a cup of coffee.

I took this particular project because the design truly reflects the colours from Singapore after watching so many travel videos on the subject.
TwoPoints.Net shared a beautiful brand identity project for the New York City architecture firm Dash Marshall. When designing the corporate identity they realized that architecture acts in the intersection of the old and the new, the static and the flexible, the properties of matter and the lives of people. Within these constraints, Dash Marshall creates spaces which tell the stories of their habitants and invites them to create new ones.

If you love of using a grid systems for every logo design you create, including marks and icons, Kareem Magdi got you covered. He shared a set of beautifully designed logomarks and the grid system behind it. The symbols vary from letters to animals including squirrel and elephants to other more abstract shapes. Personally, I like the use of this technique to make sure that the form is optically balanced, however, I also think it's not needed all the time. It might add too much rigidity to the design.

KIND | Conceptual Branding shared an super elegant brand identity project on their Behance profile. It's for the law firm Lineage Law. They are a company that primarily deals with the things you don’t like to talk about: inheritance law and what happens when life comes to an end. In practice, this means focusing on leaving a legacy. A timeless challenge that requires timeless communication and a timeless identity.
Motherbird, a design studio from Australia created an amazing brand identity for the London based content agency Something. As they describe, it's a no logo logo and the awesomeness lives in the simplicity as you can see on the comps below. It reminds me a bit of the rebranding of MySpace, that used similar concept. This one is way edgier, at least when we talk about the branding system overall. Enough said, get inspired with the images below.

Shibu PG shared a really cool brand identity project on Behance. We are fans of any project that shares a bit more about the creative process, especially when there are sketches and the translation of them to the digital version. This brand identity has a super stylish color palette, a bit unconventional, with the dark theme but definitely worth checking it out.

We are taking a look at the work from Dalston Creative, a design studio located in Stockholm. They have worked at creating the brand identity for NOCK, a new three-floor design from the 19th-century building on Renstiernas Gata on Södermalm. I would love to point out that the architect was done by Jenny Frigren and Interior design by Covet
I am a fan of simplicity in design. Nothing beats the black and white when it comes to brand identity. I feel that if you can make something work well in black and white it can work with any color, or just no color at all. Just keep it as it is. For this post I'd love to share the brand identity of estúdio arco. There's not much to say about it besides it's just awesome, especially for me, due to the fact I am Brazilian and it's a design studio from Brazil :)
If you're looking for an instant mood enhancer halt now and enjoy the beautiful work of Felix Renaud for Canadian charitable organization Les Petits Freres. Renaud was tapped to shoot a calendar for this most heartwarming charity that seeks to provide companionship for elders by providing a caring, committed extended family around them dedicated to alleviating their isolation. The uplifting imagery and vibrant color palette do wonders in highlighting the subjects and their gravitas. We love everything about this campaign and the charitable organization it supports.
