Tegn_3 is a Norwegian, multidisciplinary, architecture design studio that, through inclusive methods, process-oriented and competent project management, deliver holistic solutions that encompass the fields of architecture, planning and landscape, to large clients across Scandinavia. Their visual identity, developed by Neue, draws together the themes of technical knowledge, structure, connections, collaboration and creativity through neutral typography, a modular and expanding geometric pattern, tactile and reflective print finishes, ample white space and the more unusual, playful addition of colour and the engagement of an interactive image generator.
Longton is a Melbourne-based multidisciplinary design studio, established in 2012 by Michael Longton, that offers its clients holistic design solutions built on Michael’s past experience—under his previous agency And—with large, international businesses such Sony Music, Billabong, Stussy and Warner Music.
The studio’s brand identity—an unusual, modernistic arrangement of neutral sans-serif characters, recurring circular forms and a single consistent line weight forming a logo—has a reductionist quality with the underlying qualities of a logic game or mind map. Its expanded letter-forms – isolated by generous spacing but collectively united by the container—establish a simple, proprietary value that perhaps reflects the arrangement or coming together of external sources—be that information or experience—into a single and cohesive resolution.
Manor Studio is a Singapore-based architectural and spatial design practice serving both commercial and residential clients, while its sister company, Manor Properties, specialises in development and investment. To accommodate this duality design agency Manic created a visual identity solution that fuses a set of logo-types – ‘subtly accented by the mathematical symbol for exponentiation’ – with a grid-based pattern device, two uncoated, dyed material choices and a reflective print finish across the stationery.
