Last week Glasgow-based design agency Graphical House launched their new website which included some more shots of their branding work for MYB Textiles, a lace manufacturer located in Newmilns, Ayrshire that has a history dating back to the 1920’s. Based around a reinterpretation of the company’s monogram, new art direction and simple, tactile, material choices, Graphical House created a visual identity solution that draws on the heritage of the factory and gives it a contemporary polish and humanistic dimensionality.
Design studio Artentiko has recently published images of their latest visual identity and packaging project for Hya-Joint, a medical product formulated from hyaluronic acid to treat the result of long-term wear and tear to the joints also know as osteoarthritis. Artentiko’s solution infuses a familiar, clinical neutrality and utility of ample white space and sans-serif typography with the soothing qualities of a cool colour palette, soft form and a raised gel-like print finish.
Filmfaktisk is a Norwegian team of film producers—with a strong focus on locations—that produce both commercial and fictional pieces work. Their visual identity, created by Oslo-based design agency Heydays, cleverly leverages the physical limitations of sign making and turns it into a positive and distinctive asset that visualises—through a simple line detail that connects the stems and the tittles of the i’s alongside an earthy, pine green tint applied to the texture and detail of on-site photography—a practical but creative approach to on-location shooting. It is a very simple treatment but one that brings a proprietary quality to a familiar sans-serif typeface that cohesively binds print, film and digital touch-points.
