Cocktails & Bitters designed by Bureau Collective

Stationery design by Bureau Collective for Swiss bartender Philipp Grob

Cocktails & Bitter is the identity of professional Swiss bartender Philipp Grob whose service is described by Bureau Collective, the design agency behind his new visual identity, as a “special and individual bar experience” “for gourmets, connoisseurs and explorers.”

Bureua Collective’s solution, which includes a logotype set in Fortescue with the additional flourish of an ‘i’ and ‘t’ ligature, typography that is “deliberately simple and straightforward” and a lone cocktail glass illustration created by Janine Wiget – enhanced by a full bleed across the stationery – is quite the antithesis of the noise, bustle and slick impersonal finish of modern cocktail bars. It clearly focuses on conveying a more individualised and crafted experience, with an incredibly personal, reflective, artistic and retrospective touch in its choice of imagery that works well to underline the “classic art of cocktail preparation”

Support BP&O



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.
