Saxa is an independent on-line dealer, publisher and commissioner of original and editioned works from international artists with differing perspectives and cultures, taking a curatorial and collaborative approach to make these available to collectors, galleries, institutions and the general public.
Saxa’s visual identity, created by UK-based design agency Graphical House and inspired by crystalline structures, conveys the idea of buyer and artist networks through the coalescing and interconnected forms of an abstract logo-mark which has been applied to a wide range of stationery, packaging and marketing materials as well as a responsive website.
Established by Catherine Blackford in 2012, Bindle is an Australian mail-order, gift-box service that bundles handmade artisanal food, drink, home and kitchenware products for occasions and individuals under labels such as ‘A Bit On The Side’, ‘Breakfast In Bed’ and ‘For The Hostess’.
Drawing on the name bindle, a folded canvas sheet carried as a small sack over the shoulder with a stick, the service’s identity, developed by Swear Words, utilises a printed textile pattern across the tactile, earthy textures of an uncoated, unbleached material choice and a string tied detail across the boxes alongside the high quality of a copper foil treatment to, like their work for Crabapple Kitchen, provide a contemporary finish to traditional, communicative craft cues but infused with the underlying theme of travel that conveys the delivered nature of the service.
“Owned by art dealer Suzanne Egeran and based in Istanbul, Egeran Galeri represents a mix of emerging and established artists, both Turkish and international, within a program rooted in traditions of conceptual art. Located on the coast of the Bosphorus strait and designed by Sanal Architecture, the gallery carries distinctive architectural characteristics, with diagonal walls that disrupt the space from a conventional geometry.”
“Taking these defining traits as a foundation for the Egeran identity system, Project Projects designed a wordmark which is itself comprised of modernist grotesque letterforms, each broken into delicate fragments by elegantly intersecting diagonals. Applied on front door signage, a stencil version based upon these custom typographic elements translates the graphic identity back to a physical, visceral dimension.” – Project Projects
