In Bed is an online store that retails homeware items such as handmade ceramic and wood saucers, bowls and mugs created by Japanese and American designers, as well as high quality linens, and describes itself as a celebration of “everything we love to do in bed.”
In Bed’s visual identity, developed by Australian studio Moffitt.Moffitt, establishes a visual simplicity through undecorated type, draws personality and the “ability to reinvent itself within a narrow product range” from this using emotive language choices, and neatly sets these within the context of strong personable photography that mixes texture and informal model shots, the tactile quality of a laid linen white paper, a website of editorial and product content, and a shopping experience that blends seasonal trends with accessible product browsing. The result is an interesting contrast of typographical austerity, fine detail and relaxation effectively delivered through tone of voice, image and texture.
Simone Handbag Museum is dedicated to the history of handbags with ‘international significance’ and provides its visitors with a curated, contemporary and historical collection to explore over two floors at the centre of the South Korean city of Seoul. London based Charlie Smith Design were recently commissioned to develop a brand identity for the museum that would resonate with and unite its diverse collection across exhibition graphics, gallery guide, merchandise, posters, book, website, newsletters and temporary exhibition promotional material.
