Highlights this year have included new websites and work from Heydays and The Company you Keep, a multitude of new brand identity developments from Anagrama and Bunch, and a brutalist inspired piece by London based design studio St.
However, there were five projects that really stood out for me that have made it into BP&O’s top five of 2013, a feature that brings together what I believe to be the most interesting of the year for another opportunity to be seen and shared. These include an oversized twist on the smallest digital measure, a logotype taken out and about, bright pattern work, some solid use of material texture, print finish and photography as well as typographic contrast and a good use of unprinted space.
It has been a solid year for new packaging projects. Highlights have included Perky Bros’ work for No. Six Depot, Bond’s piece for confectionery brand Allsorts, Mucho’s design solution for Fisix, and Anagrama’s packaging for Olivarera Italo-Mexicana’s three olive oil products Olive Gold, Olaf and Valentto.
However, there were a number that, through a mix of distinctive concept and clear communicative execution (and one of restraint and abstraction), really stood out for me and have made it into BP&O’s top five of 2013, a feature that brings together what I believe to be the most interesting projects for another opportunity to be seen and shared.
