254 Forest is a Brussels-based creative studio – run by Claire Silva Moreira, Frederic Ameel, Jean-Stéphane Garbe, Ismael Moumin and international videographer Pierre Debusschere – that works within the fields of photography, film, music production and post production. Their visual identity, developed by graphic design agency Codefrisko, utilises a distinctive combination of a pearlesque substrate and holographic block foil treatment across the studio’s business card, the contrast of a sharp logo-type and blurred, 45 degree lightning strike – perhaps the flash of a bulb, the energy necessary for creative endeavour or the presentation of perspective -, and the website’s clear sense of foreground and background, to neatly resolve the depth of focus and changing light of still and moving images. Avoiding the more obvious and literal visualisations of the industry.
Lunch & Recess is a video production company based in the small town of Charleston, South Carolina that develops TV spots, webmercials, brand films and webisodes for advertising agencies, PR companies and private business. Their visual identity, created by local design agency Fuzzco and based around a simple logo-type, neatly balances geometry, internal space and a shared single-line weight consistency that binds box and type, to convey what looks like subtle technological qualities, a sense of structure, format and framing that is suitably reflective of L&R’s screen-work and perhaps a practical/pragmatic approach. A number of different logo variations, including a monogram and roundel, offer variety and flexibility without appearing superfluous while a hand-stamped print treatment across the stationery gives it a more personal and craft-based finish.
A monochromatic colour palette and heavier line detailing and fills across their website frames L&R’s rich video content and capture some of their bold personality and style. The cropped and slightly saturated photography adds a retro-editorial, colourful and cheeky quality (also reflected through the websites easter eggs and cartoon introduction) that implies an appreciation for the past whilst conveying a friendly, playful and quirky personality alongside technical ability.
Radiate Sound is an Auckland based recording and engineering studio that delivers a range of post production and composition services for the television, radio and on-line markets.

El Camino is a Helsinki based audio production and sound design company who work in collaboration with the band Husky Rescue producing music for international television and film.
