Developer Taller38 and multidisciplinary workshop T38 – a studio made up of architects, artisans, carpenters, painters and welders – work together to develop architectural pieces and real estate projects that are described by Savvy – the agency behind their new logo, stationey and website – as a “benchmark of high quality” that aims to “uplift the style and quality of life of the people” who live there.

Savvy worked with both businesses to create an identity based around modularity, grids, a dynamic sans-serif logo-type and a blue and red tinted photography that would, whether superimposed or isolated, compliment or divide the two synergetic entities.

While the project lacks the communicative material choice or print finish of last week’s built environment ID for InForm – something you might have expected from aworkshop of craftsmen – the economy of a single print run, marker tool and shared logo-type for two interrelated businesses is an interesting idea. The familiar architectural themes of space, structure, efficiency and authority/experience is effectively delivered through a combination of grid-based layouts, uppercase sans-serif letter-forms, black ink, white substrate and single colour photography.

It is a solution that has been reduced right down to the most elemental of components, and although it misses the high quality expressed in the opening paragraph its economy and efficiency places the duality of the practice through a logo-centric approach at the heart of the identity.

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.
