Opinion by Richard Baird.
Primary is a new co-working space in New York that introduces health and wellness into the workplace.

DIA were tasked with establishing a sophisticated and approachable system that would appeal to a health conscious and savvy entrepreneurial audience. This is achieved in the simplicity of form, both in type and mark, a generative component that adds a breadth of colour, and the way that this then reaches across lighting, signage, website, scheduling tool, social media, business cards and brochure.
