3-Stock Designed by Papriko, Ink

3.Stock is a bar and club venue situated in Aarau, Switzerland. Their new identity, designed by Swiss and Japanese based agency Papriko Ink, uses a holistic approach to create a succinct and simple communicative brand idea that included logo design, iconography and a modular system for printed collaterals.

This is quite a refreshing approach to club and bar communication which is often a rigid identity forced into representing a variety of event types. Here, Papriko Ink has created a flexible yet unified system that is simple and consistent clearly taking its cues from public information systems. The logo-mark, based on the three floor layout of the venue, has a very minimal and abstract form but with a relevant and functional role. The icons reflect this ideal with a strong communicative style while the typographical work is clear, bold and well weighted against the mark and iconography.

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.
