“Nana Chan, a self-styled epicurean, commissioned us to create an identity for her self-projects: blog, Youtube channel and tea house in Taipei (Coming soon!). From a Lawyer turned to gourmand and travel junkie, she believes the simpler things in life that matter most. We like it so much and, in fact, it is our belief too. We based on her personality and writing, a pure and quiet visual language was created to convey her message. We take “- – - – -“ to portray the repeating pattern of our living and Nana shares the little surprises to our lives “- n – a – n – a – “. We adapted this system throughout all projects and applications. All photos were taken by Nana.”

“I wanted a card that showed my interest in sustainability, especially my love of bamboo as a sustainable material. My cards are each hand-carved and then laser etched with my logotype. The cards are also an exercise in minimalism – the only details on my card are my name. One of the advantages of having an obscure name and owning the relevant ‘.com’ is that, with a quick google search, I am fairly easy to find. It also creates a degree of intrigue with the recipient and helps drive people to my site and look at my work.”

“Pronto is a chain of Italian restaurants based in Moscow. The logo refers to Roman mythology, Mercury’s winged hat which supports the meaning of restaurant’s name. At the same time, illustrations help to convey the peaceful and prepossessing atmosphere of the place.”

“I wanted my business card to read in a way that would give potential clients a feeling for my design sensibility and tone of writing. This was more easily conveyed
as a paragraph than the standard quick rattling off of contact information. My j/w monogram acts like an initial cap you might find at the beginning of a favorite story. It’s a square format, (3.5 in. x 3.5 in.) printed on 600 gsm cotton Lettra paper by the talented Elana at Spoon&Sailor letterpress in Rhode Island.”

“Business Card - The brief was to truly represent Monogram Design through a business card. Monogram is a contemporary graphic design studio in Sydney, Australia who offers bespoke, tailor-made creative and strategic solutions for a variety of clients.
The card design and execution needed to showcase the care and attention to detail/craftsmanship with which Monogram executes their work. The messaging needed to champion the attitude with which Monogram carries out business; that is with a playful sense of humour.
In a world where designers are everywhere, and tactile craftsmanship has taken a back seat, we needed to stand out and wow the public. So far, it has worked. There are two comments that come out of handing out this card. One is, “I’ve never seen anything like this” and the other is, “This is my favourite card of all time!”. We’ve even heard of people re-designing their cards to raise their ante!

‘Les Garçons de Smel’ was inscribed on the envelope that photographer Cornelie Tollens slid across the table to us. ‘Your prints,’ she said. Looking at the large A3+ envelope there on the table, involuntary smiles appeared on our faces.
Tollens’ personal note was the starting point for our new identity.Special and personal contact with our clients is part of our core business, but how do our clients see us? With that question in the back of our heads, we searched for e-mails, notes, envelopes, etcetera. Soon enough, we found lots of unique quotes about Smel.
For the identity, we made a selection of five different texts. The texts range from a signed text by Bono (U2), to a piece of an e-mail from Tom Waits. All texts are related to the work or the people working at Smel. The quotes intrigue and trigger curiosity to the story behind them. The asterisk on the back of some parts of the stationery gives a reference and a brief explanation.« Prev — Next »
