Victor Martinez is a MX based architect and studio founder described by client Carlos Caballero as having a ‘great sensitivity to aesthetic balance’, ‘spatial intelligence’ and believes that ‘function rules over all things’. Supermodernist design bureau Face recently developed a new visual identity for the studio which combines a structural monogram, a personal and practical hand-stamped print treatment and the raw tactile and architectural textures of an uncoated substrate choice.
Algu is a Spanish architecture and interior design studio founded by Natalia Alonso Roger Guitart. Their identity, designed by independent freelance designer Francesc Moret, represents the collaborative and combined knowledge of the studio’s founders alongside the themes of craft and modernistic architectural practices through a simple monogram, lower-case logo-type, mixed fibre business cards and hand-stamped print treatment.
Stockholm based graphic and product design studio Bedow recently developed a new visual identity and stationery solution for Askeroths Trappor och Räcken, a small Swedish manufacturer of specialist staircases.
Based around a simple but identifiable abstraction, the logo-mark captures the elemental, functionality and practicality of staircases and the solid technical abilities of the craftsmen through the combination of a single, consistent line weight, basic geometry and nice balance of positive and negative space.
