BP&O Collections — Film Industry

Selected by Richard Baird.

A continually updated collection of some of the best brand identity design work for film festivals, cinemas, awards, production companies and distributors, reviewed and published on BP&O. This post features work by Pentagram, Studio fnt and Heydays, and includes simple logo design and stationery sets, and extends to those that cover signage, photography, custom typography and lighting.

Projects move between the dramatic and the subtle, the abstract and the referential, the static and dynamic. There are those that look to communicate the storytelling nature of cinema, its craft and immersive nature using imagery, scale and perspective. There are recurring motifs, often given new interpretations, ideas that take their inspiration from an era, technology or particular film, and those that are practical, reflecting the physical and made nature of film production. Be sure to click the images to read more about the project, the intentions of each design, and how these work alongside other assets.
