BP&O Collections — Block Foiling

Selected by Richard Baird.

Block Foiling Gallery & Inspiration — BP&O Collections

A continually updated gallery of graphic identity and packaging design work, reviewed and published on BP&O, that utilise foil blocking. These include solid, clear and multi-coloured foils, and those that feature micro-structures or sculpted details. This post features work by Studio South, Triboro and Bedow, and covers a variety of projects, from property developments and artists to restaurants and coffee subscription services.

The work below explores the intersection of the graphic and surface, the striking and the subtle. They move between a simple aesthetic pleasure in conjunction with materials, interesting ideas, a continuity of concept and communicative intention. These all serve to maintain a sense of quality, where ubiquity of finish seeks to undermine. Also check out Blind Embossing and Die Cutting.

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.
