PÜR is a health-food store with two locations in the Finnish capital of Helsinki. Design studio Bond worked with PÜR on brand identity, from logo, iconography and art direction, to interior design, website, advertising and marketing materials.
Using a blend of bold sans-serif characters and moment of typographical play, earthy material detail and a pastel colour palette, still life photography and monolinear pictograms, Bond created an modern, engaging and multi-dimensional brand experience that expresses the personable nature of service and the natural effectiveness of products.
Maréna Beauté is a new Swedish cosmetics brand, founded in 2013 by make-up artist Diarry Maréna, that creates high quality products for people with dark skin types. Stockholm-based design studio We Are Bold were commissioned by Maréna to develop a brand identity solution for her range of foundations, powders and blushers—which included a monogram, logo-type and packaging design—that would appeal to a market currently underserved by other premium cosmetic brands.
Located in the Majorstuen district of Oslo The Norwegian Academy of Music is Norway’s largest music academy. It offers both undergraduate and post-graduate courses, has educated some of Norway’s most prolific musicians, and, according to Wikipedia, ‘attempts to lay the foundation for research within the various fields of music’.
Based around the concept of an ‘endless visual pulse’, design agency Neue developed a new generative logo system for the academy that takes the sounds of students practicing, the conversations of the cafeteria and the applause of the concert halls, and allows these to resonate through a number of graphic elements set above and below a horizontal line to form a responsive and geometric waveform.
