Quarterly Co. describes itself as ‘a new way to connect with the people you follow and find interesting’ and is an on-line subscription based service that delivers, on a quarterly basis, curated products selected by influential bloggers, designers and artists. Each package is built around a unique concept or story reflective of the philosophies of each contributor providing the subscriber with a tangible link to the people they follow in the digital world. Contributors include, among others, Amanda Hesser & Merrill Stubbs, Josh Rubin & Evan Orensten (from Cool Hunting) and Tina Roth Eisenberg. Quarterly’s visual identity, created by web, app and brand design studio Oak (who also developed the service), is an interesting combination of a utilitarian postal aesthetic, retro illustrative details, badge and san serif logo-type.
Onsagers is an Oslo based consultancy that specialises in the protection of intellectual property through patents, trademarks, design and law. Since its establishment in 1945 Onsagers has grown, aided by merger with Defensor in 1997, to become one of Norway’s leading IPR firms. Its new identity, developed by brand and packaging design agency Uniform earlier this year, is a simple but bold combination of a mono-line weight logo-type, icons and a striking, authoritative, white, black and bright yellow colour palette.
Polish design studio For Brands (formerly Artentiko) have published images of their latest visual identity project commissioned by Wrocław based architectural studio Ideo Architekci. Based around a modular and dynamic grid based framework, modernistic typeface and a bright industrial colour palette, Artentiko’s solution manages to capture the fundamental aspect of architectural planning and a consistent but expansive approach.
