Cerovski Branding by Bunch

Branding by Bunch

Cerovski branding by Bunch.

Cerovski is a young Croatian print production studio that revels in the challenge of “nebulous finishing, microscopic editions, absurd materials and crazy deadlines”.

Design agency Bunch recently developed a new brand identity for the studio—which included a custom logotype and typeface, website, and a variety of printed collateral.

The utility of the logotype and typeface provide a cohesive foundation for a wealth of material choices and print finishes. These include metallic and white inks, dyed and unbleached boards and papers, die cuts, debossed clear foils, open stitching and over-print details.

Xoclad Branding by Anagrama

Xoclad Branding by Anagrama

More great work from Anagrama. They can do no wrong.

Xoclad is a high-end pastry and confectionery shop located in the Mayan Riviera. In a place bustling with tourist activity, Xoclad needed to communicate the area’s strong Mayan culture in a classy way that could never be called cliché or tacky.

First, we gave its name a visual and phonetic pre-hispanic feeling that also conveyed one of the shop’s prime products: chocolate.

Then we designed a labyrinth-like pattern reminiscent of antique mayan art and architecture ornamentation. The color palette consigns the brand with a sober, clean feeling that makes it modern and sweet.

Novelty Boutique Branding by Anagrama

Novelty Boutique Branding by Anagrama

Novelty Boutique branding by Anagrama. Nice.

Novelty is a shopping boutique that retails casual apparel to chic young women with a taste for fresh, modern fashion. The shop started up as a project by Novelty’s partners once they returned from the exciting and ever-evolving New York fashion scene. The shop was to feature handpicked items that could be considered quirky and novel trendsetters, something you couldn’t find in any other shop, hence our choice for naming. Located in Calzada del Valle, a gardened boulevard inside the exclusive area of San Pedro, a suburb of the larger metropolitan city of Monterrey, Mexico.

Novelty is the high-end fashion store of curiosity shops.

Like its attire inventory, the brand is sober and feminine but has the ability to thrive among more eccentric elements, such as the watercolor marks in the stationery or the collage-like composition of its printed ad.

Gist – Editorial Branding by Anagrama

Gist - Editorial Branding by Anagrama

Editorial branding for Gist by the ever wonderful Anagrama.

Gist - Editorial Branding by Anagrama

Gist is a lifestyle magazine that reports on many different subjects, from fashion to gadgets, health and tourism. Its naming is a reflection of its multifaceted nature. Its readers can “get the gist” on all the different topics of each issue.

Our design proposal was a decision to shake things up a little, editorial design-wise. Its quirky, audacious, fresh and current feel is actually based on a simple formula that involves the exaltation of images through the use of thick frames and colored backgrounds.

In GIST, the images always appear front and center, so the magazine presents a great opportunity for up-and-coming photographers to show off their work.

Since GIST’s topics are ever-changing and versatile, we decided that it was important to keep the cover constant. It will always feature the portrait of a model superimposed by a frame of gorgeous, shiny foil.

Saks Fifth Avenue ‘LOOK’ Campaign by Pentagram

Campaign by Pentagram

Saks Fifth Avenue ‘LOOK’ Campaign by Pentagram.

One of fashion’s most gratifying thrills is finding new and unexpected pieces and putting them together to make a fresh look. The Fall 2013 campaign for Saks Fifth Avenue showcases the luxury retailer as the ultimate place for fashion discovery. Designed by Pentagram’s Michael Bierut and team, the campaign uses the word “LOOK” as a bold, attention-getting graphic motif that invites shoppers to explore the store and its style. The campaign builds on our identity for Saks and was developed in collaboration with Terron Schaefer, Saks’ executive vice president and chief creative officer.

The “LOOK” wordmark was designed as custom typography and appears in the signature black and white of the store identity. Repeated as a pattern on shopping bags and catalogs, the simple, geometric letterforms become a highly graphic texture that literally makes you look. In keeping with the theme of discovery, the letters can be used as mini-portals to focus on clothes, jewelry and accessories. Some letters are die-cut on catalog covers to show a peek of the first page inside; other applications place images within the letterforms, for a closer look.

For the designers, the challenge of the Saks seasonal campaigns is they must coordinate with the store’s overall identity; a “LOOK” bag still has to read as a Saks bag. This usually means that, in addition to being black and white, the designs are modular, and often based in squares like the master identity. The campaigns must also serve as a frame for a wide range of specific merchandise, including single items and groups of items; and in different contexts, like print, advertising, and in-store merchandising. This often leads to simple motifs that can withstand an endless range of applications.

Stylish and playful, the Saks “LOOK” graphics can be arranged in multiple configurations for everything from shopping bags, boxes and visual displays to “LOOK” books, catalogs, direct mail, social media and the website. Saks has also developed a series of taglines for different aspects of the campaign, including “Look What’s New” sections in stores, “Making of a Look” style tutorials, and “Look Closer” features that point out details of the craftsmanship of various items.

Adamantinos Wine Packaging by Noon Design

Adamantino Packaging by Noon Design

Beautiful packaging for Adamantinos Wine by Noon Design.

The name “Adamantine” describes metaphorically the character of this fine wine. Geometrical reflections -like those of the diamond sides- span throughout the entire range of the label and become distinguished from the background with the print of spot UV varnish. Right at the center of the label the rhombus shape has been created by the vertical permutations of the capital letter A. We used golden foil for the red wine and silver for the white one. It is the strong glow of the diamond on the rough surface of the paper. Simplicity and minimalism characterize this label design, expressing this way the sacramental conversion of raw materials from vineyards in bright wines with a special value.

De Intuïtiefabriek Branding by Raw Color

De Intuïtiefabriek Branding by Raw Color

Nice work by Raw Color with this re-branding of De Intuïtiefabriek.

De Intuïtiefabriek is an all female design studio finding common ground in their intuitive way of working trough the use of materials and techniques. Their designs are all about craftsmanship, detailing and the actual act of making things. For the development of their new identity the material feel was an important ingredient. The aim was to design ‘pieces of material’ that represent the tactility and detailing of their products. As a result a modest grid is created that spreads continuously on the 4 business cards and the compliment card.

Johan & Nyström Tea Packaging

Johan & Nyström Tea Packaging

Gorgeous work by Garbergs Project for Johan & Nyström Tea.

Without loosing style, we wanted to feed colours and playfulness into the concept. That’s why the tea-boxes are inspired by children’s playing blocks using initials from the actual product’s main ingredient/feature, allowing poetry writing on your kitchen shelf.

Calexico’s Branding by Snask

Calexico’s Branding by Snask.

Calexico’s was made with the ambition to take Mexican food to Stockholm’s dining rooms, mixed with Sangria and frozen Margaritas. A fine blend of street tacos, a trendy bar and fine dining. We decided to hand paint the type, inspired by Mexican street taqueria signs and we chose a pastel colour palette accompanied by copper to add the luxurious feel. Everything carried the identity – from the menu to the clothes and the plates. The menus were printed as disposable coasters, which helped the hungry who now have their food options available the instant they sit down. A highly skilled window painter helped to add the final touch, actually using real gold on the restaurant windows.

Ladies & Gentlemen branding by Ghost.

Ladies and Gentlemen is a full service millinery boutique offering high-end, handmade and custom hats from across the United States. The owner of this unique shop, nestled in a popular arts district was looking for a mark that was as distinct as her clients and their tastes. For the identity, a stylized floral pattern was hand-illustrated and paired with a type-driven mark for a modern take on a millinery with vintage sensibilities. The business cards and collateral echo the quality of the shop’s offerings with hand-made details and use of personalized stamps on the stationery top off this one-of-a-kind brand.

Makers Union Branding by Jake Dugard

Makers Union Branding by Jake Dugard

These ‘collect them all’ business cards designed by Jake Dugard for the Makers Union are great.

Knowing that I was screen printing the cards using a large screen, I wanted to take advantage of the space that it provides. So, I decided to put ten different designs and print them all at once. It will add a little variety and hopefully be fun for the people that will get these cards. Kind of a “collect them all” mentality.
