Ridley is a pioneer of digital architectural services and operates as a central hub from which builders, developers and architects can collaborate. Originally established, and continuing to operate as an architectural documentation specialist, Ridley, from its premises in Australia and the Philippines, has also grown to become a leader in Virtual Design Construction. This is a practice that involves attaching live data to every aspect of a 3D model in order to provide a comprehensive overview of a structure, the process of its construction and significantly reduce the cost of its development.
Designed by RE:, Ridley’s new brand identity is based around the concept of seeing the bigger picture through a variety of individual elements, the character, culture and people of its business, and its architectural practices. This is visualised as a variety of cropped, cut sans-serif logotypes, animated logo, a bright colour palette, human-centric data, and type that runs across multiple planes.
Mitsuori Architects is an architectural design studio that creates high quality structures and spaces that merge aesthetic beauty with careful planning and thoughtful detailing. Their large scale project experience is combined with the flexibility of a smaller practice allowing them to provide big clients with a personalised service.
Mitsuori’s visual identity, designed by Melbourne based Hunt & Co. and informed by a name that translates from Japanese as three-fold, does not speak of individuality or differentiation, but of neutrality and common architectural principles and considerations such as light and shade, structure, materials, processes and form within three-dimensional space. These are effectively delivered through few but well designed assets that include type and material choice, fold and finish across the studio’s stationery, website and signage.
Nine Smith Street is the latest residential property project from Neometro, a company that describes itself as having a reputation as Melbourne’s most design-focused development group and recognised as one of the first holistic design and construction businesses in Australia. Neometro are dedicated to creating architectural buildings that are beautiful, functional and timeless, and have a sense of place and belonging. Neometro’s brand identity and that of its Fitzroy property Nine Smith Street, designed by Studio Hi Ho, effectively uses colour, type and substrate contrast to establish a solid foundation from which to communicate a variety of future property projects. It also reflects a design aesthetic rooted in a modernist heritage and the company’s commitment to new textures, finishes and materials.
