BP&O Collections — Blind Embossing

Selected by Richard Baird.

A continually updated gallery of brand identity, packaging and graphic design, reviewed and published on BP&O, that feature a blind emboss or debossed detail. This post features work by Bibliothèque, Triboro and Bedow, and covers a variety of projects, from restaurants and lighting architects to galleries and fashion labels.

These conceptual approaches include the framing of words for art gallery Galerija Kranjčar, a recurring H motif by Mucho for Héctor Ayuso, and a reference to light and shade by Triboro for their work with lighting architects L’Observatoire International.
