Food Studio is a group of food professionals, designers and photographers that come together to create unique and unconventional shared, natural and Nordic food experiences, table talks and workshops where “food becomes conceptualized through physical and mental experiments”.
Design agency Bielke&Yang, who have been part of Food Studio from the beginning, recently worked with a team of copywriters, ﬁlm producers and photographers to create a “holistic brand and experience” for the studio that included strategy, naming, identity design, website, packaging and an extensive set of printed collateral.
Lovely new packaging design by Helsinki based studio Bond for liquorish confectionery brand Allsorts that brings the “distinctive shapes and colours of the liquorice into the forefront of the design” with simple, iconic geometric illustrative detail and a bright colour palette, enhanced by the black background of a card box structural solution. An approach described by Bond as resulting in a “bold and playful packaging design that allows consumers to easily identify the different varieties.”
Created by consultant Ray Lindberg with the intention of setting new standards for flexible work environments, Kontoret provides low-cost office space by the hour, with wireless internet, printers and coffee, to freelancers, chief executives, local businesses and international travellers in the centre of Helsinki.
Inspired by the “essence and basic needs of office work and the aesthetics of the classic office environment”, design agency Werklig created a new grid-based identity for Kontoret drawn from the typeface Replica Mono, a custom set of icons and utilises branded office tools such as Bic pens, Post-it notes and Stabilo Boss highlighters to establish a “brand identity with a strong link to the traditional office environment with a minimalist Scandinavian twist.” Werklig’s brand identity extends across neon signage, window decals, bags and stationery.
