Lukas/Markus is a decade-long photographic project by Kalle Sanner shot with a large format camera and exploring the mirrored and connected chapels of Saint Lukas and Saint Markus designed by architect Sven Brolid. The structure was built during the 1960s, a period when Swedish functionalism was at its height, and is located in the Western Cemetery of Gothenburg.

The book, released May 2018 and co-published by ll’Editions and Blackbook Publications, exists in two versions. The first is an 82 page cloth-bound hardcover trade edition that measures 200 x 223 mm and the second is a special edition housed within a handmade clamshell box that includes an embroidered handker­chief and one of three c-prints signed and numbered by the photographer. Both of these books were designed by Scandinavian studio Lundgren+Lindqvist.

Enter Arkitektur by Lundgren+Lindqvist

Opinion by Richard Baird

Logo and hand-bound notebooks designed by Lundgren+Lindqvist for Swedish architecture studio Lundgren+Lindqvist

Enter Arkitektur is a Swedish two-office architectural practice located in the cities of Jönköping and Gothenburg. It has a rich history that goes back to the 1950’s and a portfolio that moves between residential housing and commercial building projects.

In response to restructuring and expansion, the practice worked with Lundgren+Lindqvist to develop a graphic identity that would better represent their legacy, contemporary structures and forward outlook. This builds out the arrow of their original identity—maintaining some form of continuity—into a more distinctive and immediate architectural motif, pairing this with type, introducing a broader colour palette and creating a new online platform to showcase Enter Arkitektur’s work.

To mark the launch of their new graphic identity, Lundgren+Lindqvist developed a range of gifts. These included illustrative A5 postcards, gift wrap to coincide with Christmas, knitted scarves, silkscreened tote bags and hand-bound notebooks alongside more formal documents and assets such as brand guidelines, stationery set, business cards and website.

Branding for Canadian restaurant and distillery Park by Glasfurd & Walker

Park is a bar, restaurant and distillery located in the Canadian resort town of Banff, within the Banff National Park, and the province of Alberta. It is a region of diverse natural beauty which includes mountains, prairies, forests and desert badlands, and that attracts walkers, campers and skiers locally and internationally.

The restaurant is a celebration of Banff’s alpine history and lifestyle. This runs throughout an interior of warm lighting, long dining tables, enamelware, exposed stone walls and beams, antlers and wood panelling, a campfire-inspired menu of spit-roasted, wood-fired and smoked flavours, and a bright and robust brand identity developed by Vancouver based graphic design studio Glasfurd & Walker.
