uBear is a high-end mobile phone, tablet and laptop accessories business located in Los Angeles, California. Their brand identity, recently developed by Hype Type Studio and Mash Creative, included a new logo, stationery, packaging and responsive website solution.
By utilising the bold graphic detail of diagonal stripes, sans-serif type, a bright and diverse colour palette, fine diagrammatic illustration, foils and varnishes and a simple bear icon, Hype Type Studio and Mash Creative’s solution effectively infuses familiar technological cues, a robust and practical industrial sensibility with an accessible, high quality, and distinctive dimensionality.
Obbio, a compound of obvious and bio, is a high quality organic supermarket built on a warehouse concept “where traditionally goods were sold without intermediaries.” Designed by Mayuscula, Obbio’s brand identity—which included logotype, illustration, packaging and signage design—juxtaposes etched illustrative detail alongside the utility of a modular grocery box device and stencil cut typography to resolve traditional values and modern convenience.
Capitalising on the increasing demand for healthy protein-rich snacks and sports supplements Kings Biltong, a business established by three former England rugby professionals, have launched a three flavour, cured and sliced, grass-fed British-beef range that offers athletes an “alternative to chalky protein bars and other supplement snacks that miss the mark in terms of both taste and quality perceptions.”
Designed by Leeds-based Robot Food, Kings’ new brand identity and packaging solution takes the clinical sensibilities of the supplement market and fuses it with a traditional Britishness, a union described by the studio as ‘clean, confident and bolder’ with a ‘simplified brand identity, message and colour way’ and a ‘vintage sporting appeal’ that places quality, taste and provenance at the heart of communication.
