Following a recent split and seeking to establish a solo career, Batishta commissioned design agency The Bakery to develop a new visual identity, website and CD packaging solution for his 5010 album that would position him as a modern urban gentleman and reflect his ‘established celebrity, rooted in street culture and hip-hop’.
Established in 1989 and originally located in New York, Macbeth Media Relations is a London based specialist PR agency that delivers ‘individually tailored strategies’ to a small but international roster of singers, musicians, composers and promoters of classical music. Their new visual identity, created by independent design agency This Is Studio, is a nice mix of simple shapes, grid based collateral layouts, utilitarian type, hand finishes and a craft colour palette that works well to contrast and represent a systematic but personal approach.
