Minke is a Spanish print production studio that favours ‘analogue splendour’ over mass manufacture, providing its clients with a variety of small-scale, mechanical and handcrafted processes. Their visual identity, developed by multidisciplinary design studio Atipo, reflects these services, processes and philosophy through a union of traditional and contemporary detail that exists across type, colour, material texture, print finish, pattern and die cut elements.

Contrast is used to great effect, blending classic and contemporary elements. These include, but are not limited to, a juxtaposition of abstract geometric mark alongside the editorial flourish and friendly informality of an all lowercase italic logo-type, the technological sensibilities of the iconography and elements of repetition set against handcrafted flourishes. The colour palette, again and fusion of past and present, unites these assets through the restraint and timelessness of black and white, and the more recent energy of bright highlights drawn from a variety of paper stocks.

The result is a simple but well resolved union of contrasting type, form, colour and texture that communicate paper and print finish quality, suggests a consistency in reproduction but with a creative enthusiasm and personality.

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.
