Albury Furnished Properties by A Friend Of Mine

Albury Furnished Properties

Albury Furnished Properties is a company specialising in modern, furnished and serviced accommodation for business professionals and travellers located in New South Wales, Australia. Their new brand identity, designed by Melbourne based A Friend Of Mine, captures the complete nature of the service in a modular and expanding identity.

“The identity graphic is an array of shapes representing furniture and household utilities — which come together in a neat house shape. The clean website shows the extensive range of properties and is built with a custom content management system allowing instant and easy updating of the status of existing properties and the new additions to the site.”

I think the concept works really well to convey the idea of a complete service built from the little details that stand this service apart. I am not keen on the typographical treatment but the letter-forms and weight suitably compliments the logo-mark. Once you see the animation the mark starts to take on a 3 dimensional aspect that gives it a sense of depth and duality that reinforces the modular concept. There does seem to be a little confusion as to the roll of the de-constructed house, appearing alongside the reassembled logo-mark makes the overall lock-up a little long. Splitting these up onto either side of the business cards would have been a neat solution.

The application across the printed collaterals gives the brand a distinctive and very modern sensibility with the reversed white details on a grey background looking particularly neat.

Thank you to everyone who has visited BP&O since its beginning in 2011. As many of you know, BP&O has always been a free-to-access design blog that seeks to offer extended opinion on brand identity work. It has sought to be the antithesis of the social media platform that often disentangles form, context and content. Writing articles can take 2-4hrs and are carefully researched.

I am passionate about design writing and believe that spending time to write about work, rather than just posting images, furthers design discourse. If you have enjoyed this article, have been with the site from its early days and would like to help contribute to its future, please consider supporting the site with a small PayPal donation. This will go towards the costs of hosting, CDN (to make the site quick to load) and Mailchimp, and cover some of the time it takes to research, write-up, format and share posts.
