This beautiful identity for Solis was recently designed by designer Richard Baird.
Solis is the fashion label of Tel Aviv-based Lisa Grishakova, a women’s clothing designer who balances texture, colour and pattern to create her collections. The label’s new identity draws together and subtly conveys the high quality detailing of Lisa’s garments, the warmth and radiance of the brand name and familiar fashion sensibilities, through the combination of a weighty material choice, surface treatments, foil print finish and light, consistent, single line weight letters and illustration.
Rather than attempting to distil the rich and colourful patterns of Lisa’s print work into the identity, the solution cuts through these with a dark tag which frames, with plenty of space, the delicate foil and stitch-like finish of a logo-type built from fine elements – a reference to pattern cutting guides which shares a similarity with astrological maps – bound by a radial composition and tall, light, sans-serif characters.
An uncoated, 540gsm ebony Colorplan substrate with a sandgrain emboss – an element that will change between each piece of printed communication – introduces a subtle, tactile sense of craft and reflects the mixed texture of the garments while a gold deboss adds a more conventional but clear sense of luxury that catches the light as the card is tilted making the disk appear to rotate.
A neutral, generously spaced secondary logo-type – for smaller applications – and typographical detail on the reverse draw from established fashion conventions and deliver a more restrained contrast to the front but with small ‘stitched’ line elements to tie them together.
Carté, a lovely branding by Firmalt.
Carté is a social stationary boutique that offers custom-made printed material for all kinds of social events.
Carté started as a small business that has grown larger throughout the years. They wanted to rebrand themselves with an identity that reflects the high quality of their work as well as their focus in excellent customer service.
?The identity is inspired by the hand-made production methods that Carté uses to create their printed pieces, and their hands-on approach of fulfilling the customer’s wishes. The colors were selected because of the way they balance and compliment each other, appealing to the large feminine market without neglecting the male customer market. ???

Genius – The tennis court business card by Denia Salu Tennis Academy.
Trig jewelery and branding from talented Olivia King.
I recently started working on a project that’s a been a combination of two of my great loves – geometric patterns and accessory design. I was always pretty terrible at maths in school, but the name Trigonometry seemed ironically appropriate in light of my passion for triangles. Using a selection of native Australian materials, and hand painted wood, the first prototype designs were endless and I quickly realized the potential for project where the designs weren’t mine, but those of the customers themselves. Using the Trig app, each piece is unique the tastes and style of those making them, with colour, shape and material options available in multiple variations. The final products are finished with natural oils and packaged in bright boxes with personalized thank you cards, ready for wear within days of their creation.
The Wigwam Cabins Branding by talented Oat.
The revival of historic 1930′s cabins on the Mohawk trail celebrates the progressive optimism of American modernism and evokes the romantic heyday of roadside hospitality. The heritage of this byway is honored through the use of color and pattern inspired by Native American trading blankets.
