Stationery designed by LSDK for Frederik Laux Photography

Frederik Laux is an award winning German portrait, fashion, lifestyle and editorial photographer with a client list that includes Alliance and Mercedes-benz. His new visual identity, developed by Stuttgart based design agency LSDK, takes a competently spaced but generic condensed, sans-serif logotype and executes it as a redacted three-line mark  die cut by hand across a print solution that mixes the cool and dark greys of uncoated unbleached boards, a pastel green paper, bright fluorescent stickers that cut diagonally through the stationery, the quality and authoritative weight of a letterpress business card with hand painted edges and the unusual detail of a portfolio case with a strap made from bike inner tubes.

Although I am not sure I completely understand the redacted qualities of the logo-mark – perhaps it alludes to the idea that images have a communicative value that far exceeds those of words, rendering them void – the result is an interesting contrast of urban utility, contemporary energy and the subtle craft cues and individuality introduced through the production methods of the stationery.

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.
