October’s Top 5 Projects 2012

October's Top 5 Projects on published in BP&O

These are the five projects I reviewed during October that I felt really stood out and wanted to give them another opportunity to be seen and discussed. I have ordered these from five to one with my favourite project presented last. Do you agree with my choices?

 

05 Breakwater designed by Lundgren + Lindqvist

Breakwater - Logo and business card designed by Lundgren + Lindqvist

Breakwater is a Swedish logistics company that services the marine cargo sector. Their visual identity and stationery, created by Gothemburg-based studio Lundgren + Lindqvist, brings together the themes of open sea, systems and cargo through the vertical and horizontal intersection of a geometric sans serif, simple grid-based layout, plenty of space and a vivid blue and icy white colour palette.

04 Fin Collective designed by DIA

Fin Collective - Logo and branding designed by DIA

New York-based creative studio DIA have recently developed the visual identity for Fin Collective, a new custom surfboard business from Rick Malwitz, a craftsman who began producing boards in 2004 from a ‘dusty basement in landlocked Philadelphia’. DIA’s solution establishes a minimal but professional platform which avoids the over-enthusiastic, excessive energy and sharp design cues typically associated with the industry, in favour of a restraint and consistency that reflects high quality, craft and a close personal relationship with the sport, through an abstract logo-mark, uppercase word-mark, intimate photography and broadly spaced lowercase typography.

Naturepaint - Packaging and branding designed by B&B

Naturepaint is a British brand of ‘earth-friendly’ powdered wall paint formulated from biodegradable, non-toxic, sustainable and locally sourced ingredients. London based studio B&B recently created a new visual identity and packaging solution for the brand which replaces the saturated visual cues of the original with a distinctive duality and contrast of contemporary form and classic type that better reflects the high quality and hardwearing qualities of the paint.

Ogopogo is a start-up that is introducing the boxed experience concept to the Croatian market.
