The Best of BP&O - January 2016

The new year got off to a great start. January’s highlights included Blok’s brand identity for LA trend watching business f32, Manual’s continued work with Californian craft beer brand Fort Point and OK-RM’s monogram, print and stationery for Antenne Books. However, there were five projects that stood out, and have made it into BP&O’s Best Of Series.

This feature brings together the most interesting, unexpected or unusual projects published on the site each month for another opportunity to be seen and shared. These typically balance a strong concept with a compelling aesthetic that appropriately plays with colour, texture, layout, form, type and print finish.

This post would usually go out on the first of the month, but a few new projects came in at the beginning of the week. Check out Stockholm Design Lab’s extensive work for retailer A-TO-B and Peck & Co’s brand identity for barber and salon Mercer Supply Co.

Relatively small studios such as Believe In and B&B Studio stood alongside those with international offices in terms of quality, a commitment to documenting their work, and BP&O features.

However, five studios stood out for the diversity of their work and their balance of clear communicative intention and compelling aesthetic, who have made it into BP&O’s Best Of Series, a feature that regular readers will probably now know brings together the most interesting, unexpected or unusual projects published on the site for another opportunity to be seen and shared.
