Investec 2014 Team Conference designed by Garbett

International banking specialist and asset management group Investec’s 2014 annual team conference took place in Port Douglas, a coastal town located in the tropical north of Queensland, home to the Great Barrier Reef and the rainforest of Daintree and Cape Tribulation.

The conference’s identity, designed by Sydney-based Garbett, draws on themes of travel, tropical destination and for the most part avoids any hint of corporate convention. This is achieved through simple geometric illustrations across beach towels and tote bags, a bright colour palette, the generosity of dyed papers, die cut detail to create luggage tags and a passport-like notebook and the dual nature of the language choice. The result is a playful summer holiday aesthetic with a practical edge.

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.
