June's Top 5 2013

These are the five projects I reviewed during June that I felt really stood out and wanted to give them another opportunity to be seen and shared. I have ordered these from five to one with my favourite project presented last.

Do you agree with my choices?

 

05 Willow Tree designed by Bunch

Willow Tree - Logo and stationery designed by Bunch

Willow Tree, describe as London’s leading business consultancy, recently commissioned design agency Bunch to develop a new but traditional looking visual identity with an attention to detail evident throughout their stationery. Based around a WT monogram, created by typographer Spencer Charles, and executed as a mix of embosses, carved in seals and simulated watermarks – achieved with an oil-based ink – across purple cloth, black leather, cream paper and handmade coffee pottery, the solution embraces a crafted sensibility alongside a more contemporary use of space and type.

04 Yoosli designed by Together Design

Yoosli - Logo and packaging created by Together Design

Yoosli is a new online service that enables customers to create their own muesli mix from a choice of over 65 ingredients delivered as a one-off or subscription service to their work or home address. UK-based studio Together Design – commissioned to develop Yoosli’s brand identity and e-commerce website – created a cast of what they describe as eccentric characters, “each of whom represents a different personality and muesli flavour”, alongside a conversational speech-bubble device to convey the ‘joyful’, personalised and ‘creative mixing experience’ provided by the service.

03 Popchips designed by Marx Design

Popchips - Logo and packaging created by Marx Design

Popchips is a four flavour range of potato chips from Ping which have been popped – much like popcorn – rather than backed or fried to create a healthier snack. New Zealand-based Marx Design were responsible for developing a new mascot for Ping that could work across multiple products in the snack food category and a packaging solution for the Popchips brand that would “avoid the clichés of traditional chip packaging in order to achieve cut-through.”

02 Fika designed by Designers Anonymous

Fika - Logo, illustration and signage by Designers Anonymous

Fika is a bar and kitchen located on London’s Brick Lane with a rustic menu prepared on site and to order, all of which can be taken away. Created by Designers Anonymous, Fika’s visual identity, which extends on-line, in-print and as signage, is an illustrative and photographic mix of characters, cartoons and quirky compounded imagery bound by a consistent logo, material choice and a recurring perforated edge detail.

01 Designers Anonymous designed by Designers Anonymous
