The Best of BP&O — March 2018

Selected by Richard Baird.

March’s highlights included Bedow’s print work for UNICEF, Base’s packaging for Graanmarkt 13 and Studio fnt’s graphic identity for Daechung Park. There were, however, five projects that stood out and have made it into BP&O’s Best Of Series. These typically balance a strong singular concept or an appropriate confluence of ideas with a compelling visual character and clear communicative intention that appropriately plays with form, colour, type and layout, as well as material, texture, image and print finish.

BP&O, in this end of month review, tries to recognise both the smart use of small budgets—those that channel spending into the most appropriate assets—and those projects with a broad and holistic quality, establishing a continuity (conceptual and/or visual) across multiple touch points.

Throughout the month BP&O also continued to expand on its collections series as another way to jump through to older posts on the site. New additions to this were Dyed Papers & Boards, Framing and From Norway.
