Studio Showcase: Bond

Selected by Richard Baird.

A continually updated gallery of graphic design work created by Bond reviewed and published on BP&O. Bond was founded in 2009 by Jesper Bange, Aleksi Hautamäki and Arttu Salovaara. They began with an office in Helsinki, expanding later to include offices in Abu Dhabi (2003) and London (2015), and this year (2018) opened their fourth office in the Estonian city of Tallin.

BP&O has been following and writing about Bond since 2012, finding their work to confidently move between the reductive and iconic and the rich and illustrative. Occasionally it can be austere and geometric or playful and organic in its form language, and while often visually diverse, projects typically share a strong singular idea expressed in an immediate and compelling manner.

Highlights include their graphic identity for Paulig Kulma, a coffee shop, roastery and barista institute in Helsinki. This stood out for the modular continuity that the studio established between an adaptable multi-functional space of moveable furniture, and a flexible system of graphic cubes and squares, and the way these interact in print and throughout the space.

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.
