Hilea is a developer of social and environmental art projects and provides design consultation and training services to local artisans in rural Brazil with the objective of improving the quality of life of the ‘traditional population’. Hilea’s visual identity, created by Hyperlocaldesign, neatly resolves sustainability, economy and craft through a rich single colour pine green executed across a tactile uncoated substrate and the emboss of a tall but light H monogram that suggests structure and stability.

The tactile quality material of the tags and business cards, produced by the people Hilea support, is a smart physical testament to the work they do while a rich pine green – delivering an economical one colour restraint, appropriately avoiding the tired, saturated and lighter environmental tones – works incredibly well to pick out the grain of the material and is respectful of struggling rural economies through a lack of embellishment.

A combination of uncoated textures, heavy board, blind emboss and die-cut finishes introduce a tactile and straightforward craft sensibility. The logo-type, built from simple geometric strokes, a clear centre line, square terminals, a single consistent line weight and small stencil cuts – delivering an interesting amount of internal space – mixes utilitarian practicality, a sense of stability and infrastructure – alongside an uppercase authority that achieves a consistency to the more humanistic qualities of artisan products.

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.
