Daniel Hopwood is a small bespoke London-based multidisciplinary design studio – working within the fields of architecture, landscape architecture and interior design – that offers its clients a creative, practical and personal service.
The studio’s identity, created by Two Times Elliott, takes the often ornamental detail of monograms of the past – a traditional distillation of a craftsman’s pride in product quality and individualised service practice – and gives it a very contemporary, geometric resolution with a solid sense of structure – through a simple consistent line weight and negative space – and a duality that mixes an H with what looks like a table and chair pictogram. Set alongside the broad, generously spaced characters of a sans-serif logo-type and a striking economical single red spot colour, the identity achieves a nice but subtle thematic union of layout, build, furnishing and functionality while the use of an uncoated, mixed-fibre, recycled substrate and a blind deboss across the collateral add a crafted, sustainable undertone that conveys an appreciation for material and material texture.
Krohn is a ‘young but experienced’ Oslo-based furniture, interior and architectural design studio that develops holistic solutions that strengthen and add value to brands through interior environments. Krohn’s visual identity, website and stationery – created by visual communications agency Commando Group - captures the multi-disciplinary nature of the studio and juxtaposes bold architectural structure and simple interior spaces with fine, high quality detailing through an abstract, multi-perspective logo-mark, interactive applet and the union of an uncoated concrete grey substrate and gold block-foil print finish.
Christopher Elliott is an Australian interior designer based in Melbourne with a modern luxurious and clean architectural style. His new visual identity, created by Studio Brave, neatly unifies the practicality and functionality expected of contemporary architectural spaces and the fine detailing and high quality of the fabrics and furniture that fill these, through the juxtaposition of the tall and light, geometric, uppercase and reductionist forms of a mono-spaced logo-type, plenty of space and grid-based layout of the website alongside the very classic sensibilities of a tactile, letter-pressed, cream, uncoated substrate, gold metallic spot colour and gilded edges of Christopher’s business card.
Algu is a Spanish architectural and interior design studio founded by Natalia Alonso Roger Guitart. Their identity, designed by independent freelance designer Francesc Moret, represents the collaborative and combined knowledge of the studio’s founders alongside the themes of craft and modernistic architectural practices through a simple monogram, lower-case logo-type, mixed fibre business cards and hand-stamped print treatment.
