Peter Dibdin is a photographer who brings creativity, technical knowledge, professionalism and a personal approach to both studio and location shoots for clients working within the commercial, private, arts and editorial sectors. Following a recent move to a studio in Edinburgh’s creative hub of Summerhall, Peter commissioned long-term collaborator O Street to refresh his brand identity in a way that would reflect his new surroundings.
Based around a bold contemporary mark that blends the traditional and individual craft origins of a monogram with what looks like an abstract aperture or ring light, the near neutral sans-serif characters of a logotype built from Pragmatica, and a black ink across a grey boards, Peter’s new visual identity manages to balance personal service with a modernistic neutrality and a cool urban utility. These effectively frame and draw out, through contrast, the colour, detail and people-centric nature of Peter’s portfolio online.
In response to the financial crash the Terra-Gruppen, a Norwegian financial group owned by and in alliance with 80 local banks, looked to take positive steps to reaffirm its commitment to local customers and the continued contribution it makes to the growth and development of the communities it serves. This came in the form of a rebranding exercise that led to the name Eika and the creation of a new visual identity system, developed by design studio Mission, that extended across print, digital and environmental experiences. While leveraging many of the corporate responsibility, accessibility and locality design cues that now saturate the industry, Mission adds a little craft into the mix with uncoated papers, blind embossed detail, a bright but limited number of spot colours and a bespoke typeface.
