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.

BP&O Collections — Type Play

Selected by Richard Baird.

BP&O Collections — Type Play

A continually updated collection of graphic identity design work with a playful typographical and/or lettering component, reviewed and published on BP&O. This post features work by Pentagram, Base Design and Glasfurd & Walker and includes seasonal poster campaigns, packaging, simple and broad brand identity systems.

Projects typically share a strong visual impact and a graphic immediacy in the repetition and proportion of type across different surfaces. Some employ convivial visual languages such as Base Design’s work for Mitsulift and RE’s identity for Sydney Design Festival, while others use a playful intersection of type, material and material structure, check out BBDO’s work for Sydlexia and Essem’s packaging for Mathias Dahlgren Edition.

BP&O Collections — Events & Exhibitions

Selected by Richard Baird.

BP&O Collections — Events & Exhibitions

A continually updated collection of some of the best graphic identity design work created for events, conferences and festivals, reviewed and published on BP&O. This post features work by Pentagram, Collins and Toko, and includes simple postcards and poster sets, and extends to those that cover signage, lanyards, t-shirts and tote bags.

Projects typically share a strong visual impact and a graphic immediacy in the contrast of colour and type, followed up with detail and information up close. Occasionally these diverge, employing a striking iconographic or illustrative approach, literal depictions and or those that are more abstract in their references. For the most part, these are rooted in a compelling concept such as Collins’ work for PopTech and Re’s graphic identity for the Sydney Design Festival. Be sure to click the images to read more about the project, the intentions of each design, and how these work alongside other assets.
