This month family run Italian pasta manufacturer Rummo launched a new branding and packaging solution created by London based independent communications firm Irving & Co. The new design successfully delivers rustic charm, a sense of local quality and heritage through a craft based colour palette, textural detail, material and print finishes set alongside a script and contemporary sans serif combination over a classic, etched illustrative background.
Central Magazine is a Spanish based art, design, fashion and pop culture print and digital magazine. Their identity, designed by freelance graphic designer Leon Jorge, mixes a bold sans serif logo-type, an uncoated material choice and stamp based print treatment to capture the craft and the grounded, homespun themes of the publication.
Quarterly Co. describes itself as ‘a new way to connect with the people you follow and find interesting’ and is an on-line subscription based service that delivers, on a quarterly basis, curated products selected by influential bloggers, designers and artists. Each package is built around a unique concept or story reflective of the philosophies of each contributor providing the subscriber with a tangible link to the people they follow in the digital world. Contributors include, among others, Amanda Hesser & Merrill Stubbs, Josh Rubin & Evan Orensten (from Cool Hunting) and Tina Roth Eisenberg. Quarterly’s visual identity, created by web, app and brand design studio Oak (who also developed the service), is an interesting combination of a utilitarian postal aesthetic, retro illustrative details, badge and san serif logo-type.
