We have been seeing more and more related news to crypto, blockchain, DeFi, and beyond. How about Fintech? Well yes, it's still part of the conversations and we have been seeing a shift for some time now of more products into the financial services merging into technology. The world is advancing at a faster rate and be different is now part of the process as well. We are featuring the work of ARTKAI, a design & development studio based in Kiev, Ukraine.
Bia Janoni shared a beautiful branding and visual identity for LOAF an artisan bakery from Balneário Camboriú that produces bread with organic flour and long fermentation. This is the secret to a crusty and dense bread - but at the same time airy - with easy digestion and unique flavor of all recipes. Every week a new batch of traditional and special bread is prepared for single orders or in a monthly subscription mode - known as Club LOAF.
As of late, I have been freelancing back to my roots with branding, and building a visual system for a client. It's been such a long time ever since my graphic days and most of us have switched to 'product design'. I was stumbling across the work of the fine folks at Bunker3022., a branding & designs studio based in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Water in Switzerland is crucial, has roughly 61,000km of rivers and streams and around 1,500 lakes. And it's quite a stunning view wherever you go up in the mountains with the help of the railroad system. It's everywhere! Along those lines, I wanted to share the work of Paperlux Studio and the work they have done for 'OSUISSE' on the branding, visual identity, and the bottle design. 'OSUISSE' is providing the 'World's Finest Water' and with the help of Paperlux Studio.

We are sharing the work of Quim Marin Studio, a studio based in Barcelona, Spain. They have worked at designing this stunning visual identity for 'Irresistible Studios' which is a group of specialists, production companies in impact commercials, stills, social content, design, and animation. In terms of 'identity, it's a beautiful combination of photography, graphic design, and white space. It's refreshing and the play on the colors gives a pleasant result. Props to the work of Quim Marin Studio.
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.
COLLINS is launching a new vision for the 108-year-old San Francisco Symphony -- set to redefine classical music for modern audiences as the org transitions from the old Music Director, Michael Tilson Thomas to Esa–Pekka Salonen, a very progressive and modern successor.
Studio NinetyOne is a creative studio based in London, United Kingdom. They have shared the branding and overall art direction they have worked on for 'Fabricate Studios', which is (as I quote) "a lighting company with a singular purpose: to inspire and empower designers of light." The branding is minimal in terms of the visual direction but what takes it to another level. Art Direction. I just love how Studio NinetyOne was able to level up their client's branding by setting such a mood with these fancy neons and lighting. Quite astonishing!
Recently Impero has unveiled a new and fresh rebrand of their visual identity and web experience. Released near the end of 2020, we are welcomed with a refresh that is bold in typography and seduced by a vibrant accent color. Beyond its principles, I think it's cool they included 'motion principles' which is something we rarely see in visual identity rebrand. Quite unique! Another detail that you would come to appreciate is the usage of the project facts and quotes you will stumble across during your browsing experience.
Delightful to share about the work of Magdalena Czarnecki, she is a talented graphic designer, art & creative director based in Stockholm, Sweden. We are sharing the collaborative project she worked on for the Kiruna Forever exhibit.
The fine folks from Designit are back with another case study covering their collaboration on the branding & visual identity for a non-profit The Menomadin Foundation and their 'mission-based' approach to social impact. Another project where Designit shines on how they approach through research to learn more through field research and our co-creation workshops. First of all, what strikes me the most from this brand identity is the logo for the Menomadin Foundation.
A couple of weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to travel. Yeah it's becoming quite an eventful thing now with the current pandemic that never ceases to end. It was for a small vacation and we decided to visit the country of Austria, more precisely the cities of Vienna and Salzburg. I will be putting together a series of photos and wallpapers for you all. Located in the east part of the Danube, it's a charming city that owes its music heritage including Mozart, and Beethoven for example.

Sabbath Studio is a branding studio based Monterrey, Mexico. They shared a branding project wholly inspired by Dystopian Futures, Cyberpunk, Sci-fi / Neo-noir Cult Films & Anime themed aesthetics by client request. Let's just mention that again: 'by client request'. This is so cool and the result is just perfect and true representation of that cult era that we dearly love.

The folks over at Carla have created a quite elegant branding and visual identity project for August, a skin care product based in New York. Having good skin is worth its weight in gold, but not at the cost of our own sanity. It’s important to question ourselves as to why we engage in these behaviors and prompts us to question the pressure that the beauty industry instills in all of us. Whether we are actually engaging in an effort to practice self-care, or succumbing to the beauty industries pressures of what ‘we should be doing with our skin’.
