CZYK is a Melbourne-based industrial design practice established by Nikolai Kotlarczyk that specialises in contemporary furniture and lighting design for small and large scale production. Longton, the agency behind CZYK’s new brand identity—which included a logotype, website and printed collateral—describe the practice as having a ‘strong focus on functional, high use design based heavily around materiality, production techniques and the environmental lifecycle of each product.’

Longton’s solution, ‘influenced by the materials and component breakdowns’ of CZYK’s work, utilises stencil cuts, a light, single consistent outline weight, soft rounded terminals, simple geometry, parallel diagonals – which form isosceles triangles that subtly link the letterforms – across an uppercase logo-type, the contemporary economy of a limited colour palette and plenty of white space to neatly resolve a sense of utility, structure, support and technicality – in a similar way to architectural identities but with a slightly more accessible quality – and reflect the values and philosophies of CZYK and its 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.
