Tabarka Studio specialises in ‘detail-oriented’ and handcrafted tiles made from terracotta, a ‘clay-based ceramic earthenware that becomes porous when fired creating a worn-out, antique finish’. Anagrama, the design agency responsible for the studio’s visual identity and collateral, describe their approach as embracing an ‘archaic timelessness’ that reflects the products through the use of a blue and white scale pattern, tiled icon and a heavy, tactile and porous substrate.
Popchips is a four flavour range of potato chips from Ping which have been popped—much like popcorn—rather than backed or fried to create a healthier snack. New Zealand-based Marx Design were responsible for developing a new mascot for Ping that could work across multiple products in the snack food category and a packaging solution for the Popchips brand that would “avoid the clichés of traditional chip packaging in order to achieve cut-through.”
Mark Cappellino is described by Perky Bros, the Tennessee-based studio behind his new logo and stationery, as a leadership consultant who travels the worldwide helping individuals and teams better communicate through stronger relationships.
