Logo for Swedish specialist staircase manufacturer Askeroths Trappor Och Räcken designed by Bedow

Stockholm based graphic and product design studio Bedow recently developed a new visual identity and stationery solution for Askeroths Trappor och Räcken, a small Swedish manufacturer of specialist staircases.

Based around a simple but identifiable abstraction, the logo-mark captures the elemental, functionality and practicality of staircases and the solid technical abilities of the craftsmen through the combination of a single, consistent line weight, basic geometry and nice balance of positive and negative space.

The hand-stamped and bright red overprint treatment across a typographic choice that features small curves added to square terminals, ample letter-spacing and a low lowercase X height introduces more of a personal, creative and crafted sensibility. The diagonal build and large proportions of the mark alongside the small detail and horizontal layout of the type delivers an interesting and communicative contrast of statement style and fine detail, weighty reliability and a sense of movement.

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.
