Filmfaktisk is a Norwegian team of film producers—with a strong focus on locations—that produce both commercial and fictional pieces work. Their visual identity, created by Oslo-based design agency Heydays, cleverly leverages the physical limitations of sign making and turns it into a positive and distinctive asset that visualises—through a simple line detail that connects the stems and the tittles of the i’s alongside an earthy, pine green tint applied to the texture and detail of on-site photography—a practical but creative approach to on-location shooting. It is a very simple treatment but one that brings a proprietary quality to a familiar sans-serif typeface that cohesively binds print, film and digital touch-points.
Calabuch is a Spanish agency that provides management and representative services to international actors, actresses and directors. The agency’s visual identity, developed by multidisciplinary design studio Tres Tipos Graficos, builds on a name created to evoke the Spanish and ‘golden age’ of fifties cinema through modernistic typography across the etched illustrative detail of a classic, hand-wound camera, a tactile collection of uncoated substrates and a bright but restrained two-tone colour-palette.
Revolver is an Australian film production company with a string of awards and a diverse collection of directors and producers. Their visual identity, refreshed by Sydney-based independent design agency Toko, is a simple, clean and coherent expanding logo-type solution – built from the single, well spaced, all uppercase sans serif Helvetica – that utilises a ‘This Is’ prefix to bind, through typographical consistency, a variety of communication and the directors. Its over-sized application alongside finer details, full bleed, bright neon spot highlights and the juxtaposition of both vertical and horizontal layouts across the collaterals introduce a creative and multi-perspective sensibility that keeps the solution from appearing too corporate.
