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.
Brand identity for Ibsens Fabrikker.
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. ???
Great branding and illustrations for Sugar Mama by talented David Sierra.
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.

A great identity designed by Oat.
Great work by Justin Crutchley.
Nice identity for The Secret Garden by Christian & Allegra Poschmann.
Great work designed by Anagrama.
Santa Cruz is a quick service Mexican BBQ restaurant located in Santa Catarina, a municipality of the greater Monterrey area in northeast Mexico. Santa Cruz’s menu contains food such as brisket and baby-back ribs slow-cooked to tender perfection and offered in an array of different ready-to-go, conventional styles such as burgers and tacos. While working on this project we had the incredible opportunity to work alongside our friend and architect Eiji Hayakawa, who was in charge of the building’s extraordinary construction and design.
The hand-made quality of the logotype and overall identity is meant to praise the careful, traditional and apprehensive food making process of Santa Cruz.
The brand is simple and direct, and above all, always honest and sincere, never attempting to hide its conceptual rugged awkwardness. Destined to be franchised in the future, Santa Cruz’s honest and handcrafted demeanor will inevitably be distinctive amid all other, more synthetic fast food chain restaurants.
The project was done in collaboration with architect Eiji Hayakawa. While we developed the brand values and visual identity, Eiji worked on the restaurant’s unique and unusual architecture. The massive, scarlet barn-like structure is distinctively prominent amid the industrially gray and blue mountainous backdrop of its physical setting.

Nice branding for Zito’s Sandwich Shoppe from talented studio Tag Collective.
These spring business cards are nice.
Beautiful work for Waddesdon Wine from Paul Belford.
Waddesdon Manor is the historical country seat of the Rothschild family in the UK and home to Waddesdon Wine, the official distributor for the Rothschild collection of wines. The identity is designed to balance the rich tradition associated with Rothschild wines with a more modern approach to the wine business.
Nice print work from Ricardo Leite.
Great branding for Belinda Nowell by Maud.
Belinda Nowell is a screen play writer who, having just founded her own business, came to us for an identity. Being that storytelling is an integral part of her business, we developed this elegant mark that combines a stylised book with a capital “B”. The application of this mark then plays with orientation, suggesting this duel meaning. The business card takes this idea a step further, sandwiching a piece of white stock between two grey stocks to evoke the idea of a book.
Nice branding for Gummy Industries. More on Identity Designed.
Beautiful branding work for Spa Q by Maud.
QT Hotels approached us to design a brand for their first of several spas around Australia, with the stipulation that the identity of each should be inspired by the culture of its location, the first being on Australia’s iconic Gold Coast. We took inspiration from colourful beach huts and natural stocks to create a vibrant and approachable brand that avoids the expected. The Logo and information sit on a clean pattern free surface, always opposed by an individual and striking pattern. This juxtaposition is designed to suggest the idea of stress & relief.
The Town Mouse branding from A Friend of Mine.
In a neighbourly setting a behind Lygon Street in Melbourne, this new bar/restaurant sets out to feel as like it was opened in any decade. We deliberately eschewed fable references of ‘The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse’ in favour of a less literal approach. Inspired by the town grid our custom drawn typography is based on an isometric birds eye view of buildings. Skyscrapers are also referenced in the menu designs where perspectives are toyed with.
Through the details of our execution painterly highlights hark back to a bygone era of hand-crafted signage adding warmth, while the jaunty angle of the typography and glow-in-the-dark business cards allude to the party atmosphere in the bar. The signpainted doorstep, and windows gilded in shades of gold leaf, will wear with age and grow in character — and we’re sure The Town Mouse will do the same.
