BP&O Collections — Form Language

Selected by Richard Baird.

A continually updated collection of graphic identity design work with strong focus on form language, reviewed and published on BP&O. This post features work by Clase bcn, Lundgren+Lindqvist and Toko and includes campaign identities, packaging, simple and broad brand identity systems.

Projects within this collection typically explore form, graphically and/or materially to convey ideas, imply a value or value set, imply that there is a story to be uncovered or seek to bring to light the iconic nature of small detail of a product through scale and proportion. These move between subtle allusion and the communicatively immediate, although there is also a decorative and eye-catching intention to these as well. Common techniques include repetition, the scaling up of the small, and the making the most of an associative potential.

This post was published as a quick way to browse through BP&O’s content and get access to older but equally interesting projects through different themes, and expands on previous posts under the category The Best of BP&O. This series can be subscribed to here.

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.
