BP&O Collections — Structural Design

Selected by Richard Baird.

BP&O Collections — Structural Design

A continually updated collection of brand identity design work that includes a structural design component, reviewed and published on BP&O. This post features work by B&B Studio, Base Design and Socio Design and includes boxes, bottles, folders and slipcases.

Projects within this collection typically explore the potential of structure as a vehicle to convey ideas. This could be through material choice and relief, shape, finishes, the framing or holding of product, or the mechanism for opening or engaging with contents. These move between the decorative, subtle allusions and the communicatively immediate. Common techniques include material weighting and texture, glass bottles with bespoke relief and boxes within boxes.

This post was published as a quick way to browse through BP&O’s content and get access to older but equally interesting projects through different themes, and expands on previous posts under the category The Best of BP&O. This series can be subscribed to here.

BP&O Collections — Form Language

Selected by Richard Baird.

A continually updated collection of graphic identity design work with strong focus on form language, reviewed and published on BP&O. This post features work by Clase bcn, Lundgren+Lindqvist and Toko and includes campaign identities, packaging, simple and broad brand identity systems.

Projects within this collection typically explore form, graphically and/or materially to convey ideas, imply a value or value set, imply that there is a story to be uncovered or seek to bring to light the iconic nature of small detail of a product through scale and proportion. These move between subtle allusion and the communicatively immediate, although there is also a decorative and eye-catching intention to these as well. Common techniques include repetition, the scaling up of the small, and the making the most of an associative potential.

BP&O Collections — Type Play

Selected by Richard Baird.

BP&O Collections — Type Play

A continually updated collection of graphic identity design work with a playful typographical and/or lettering component, reviewed and published on BP&O. This post features work by Pentagram, Base Design and Glasfurd & Walker and includes seasonal poster campaigns, packaging, simple and broad brand identity systems.

Projects typically share a strong visual impact and a graphic immediacy in the repetition and proportion of type across different surfaces. Some employ convival visual languages such as Base Design’s work for Mitsulift and RE’s identity for Sydney Design Festival, while others use a playful intersection of type, material and material structure, check out BBDO’s work for Sydlexia and Essem’s packaging for Mathias Dahlgren Edition.
