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, distributors and film educators, 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.

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 — Die Cutting

Selected by Richard Baird.

BP&O Collections — Die Cutting

A continually updated gallery of brand identity, packaging and graphic design, reviewed and published on BP&O, that include a distinctive use of die cuts. This post features work by B&B Studio, Neue and Believe in, and covers a variety of projects, from simple stationery sets to broader brand identity systems.

Die cuts have been used in a variety of ways. These include the smart use of familiar shapes by Toko for ShopAround, the colouring of the RWA monogram with artwork by Spy, and the playful puzzle pieces of Lundgren+Lindqvist’s brand identity for Roger Burkhard.

Between them, featured work moves between a simple but high impact use of contrast—often juxtaposing product and packaging, material, colour and pattern—to those that are more conceptual, subtly expressing the themes inherent to the brands, products and books they are associated with. Be sure to click the images to read more about the project and the intentions of each design.

BP&O Collections — Beer

A continually updated gallery of beer branding and packaging design, reviewed and published on BP&O. This post features work by Robot Food, Perky Bros and O Street, and covers local craft beers and international brands, individual beers and packaging as part of a new brand identity system. These take a variety of approaches, from the illustrative to the typographic, the abstract to the literal and the detailed and reductive. These move between the striking, memorable and singular in concept, to those that are visually rich and story-based.
