Dosatres is a Spanish company that connects and manages a wide network of creative and strategic business centres that help brands to discover the best way to grow and communicate. Created by design studio Comite and based around the name ‘two to three’ — informed by the company’s ability to broaden communicative opportunities and paths to growth, and the concept of moving from two to three-dimensional thinking — Dosatres’ visual identity acutely contrasts three typefaces, three coloured papers and a variety of images online.
The Confidante is a group of CEOs who draw on their extensive networks to provide business leaders with tailored executive coaching and mentoring services. Designed by Re: Sydney, The Confidante’s new brand identity effectively visualises the confidential and discretionary nature of their work and the executive level of their service through a simple negative space keyhole logo that has been given visual and communicative breadth alongside ornate door handle photography, a contrast of bold sans-serif and fine serif typography, and the perceived high quality of dark paper and a copper foil print finish.
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.
