Brazilian fashion blogger Rafaela Abrahao recently commissioned design agency BR/Bauen to develop a new visual identity that would extend across her website and stationery. Drawing on Rafaela’s favourite brands, Prada, Versace and Hermes, and an interest in English nobility for inspiration, BR/Bauen developed a solution that unites the fine illustrative detail and typographical flourish of a blackletter monogram executed with a contemporary and consistent single line weight, an uppercase neoclassical Didone logo-type, duplex material textures and the finish of a foil, hand stamp and emboss. It is a combination which works well to convey the personal aspect of blogging, garment texture and a clear relationship with high fashion.
As well as providing space, Storyline, Norway’s largest film studio, offers a wide range of services which include, but are not limited to, set building, lighting, VFX, audio and video post production as well as costume and equipment rental.
Developed by Work In Progress, Storyline’s visual identity brings together the classic flourish of a script, the humanist qualities of hand drawn detail, a sense of practicality in the choice of secondary typeface and interior colour, and the spacial consideration and practical effects of the photography.
Bound by the energy of a bright colour palette, the identity manages to deliver a multi-faceted but cohesive solution that is distinctive and communicative, and extends across business cards, stationery, t-shirts and signage.
Established by Catherine Blackford in 2012, Bindle is an Australian mail-order, gift-box service that bundles handmade artisanal food, drink, home and kitchenware products for occasions and individuals under labels such as ‘A Bit On The Side’, ‘Breakfast In Bed’ and ‘For The Hostess’.
Drawing on the name bindle, a folded canvas sheet carried as a small sack over the shoulder with a stick, the service’s identity, developed by Swear Words, utilises a printed textile pattern across the tactile, earthy textures of an uncoated, unbleached material choice and a string tied detail across the boxes alongside the high quality of a copper foil treatment to, like their work for Crabapple Kitchen, provide a contemporary finish to traditional, communicative craft cues but infused with the underlying theme of travel that conveys the delivered nature of the service.
