Oyya designed by Skinn

Logotype and signage designed by Skinn for Bruges ice bar Oyya

Oyya is an ice bar located in the Belgium city of Bruges that retails a variety of frozen yoghurts, yoghurt drinks, waffles and 28 ice creams — the most in the city.

Aspira Urval designed by BVD

Logotype and coloured board business cards designed by BVD for banking, finance and insurance recruitment specialist Aspira Urval

Aspira Urval is a banking, finance and insurance recruitment specialist with offices in the Swedish city of Stockholm. Its new brand identity, designed by BVD, draws its inspiration from the name and the themes of ‘elevated ambitions’ and ‘reaching new heights’. These are visualised as a generously spaced, uppercase, sans-serif logotype with an adaptive ascender that changes depending on its context. It is a simple abstract nod to growth that draws a proprietary quality from a fairly neutral set of characters and extends across print and digital experience. A single font choice, a variety of good quality, dyed and uncoated boards, a black block foil and blind deboss print finish, each chosen to reflect care and quality of service, introduce a tactile, visual and communicative breadth to the logotype and balance a corporate familiarity and consistency with a sense of individuality.

Tamarindo designed by La Tortillería

Logo and business cards designed by La Tortillería for Spanish kitchen and bar Tamarindo

Tamarindo is a kitchen and bar with an international menu due to open in October 2014. Located in Ourense, Spain, Tamarindo was created as a refreshing alternative for local walkers who are used to traditional bars and restaurants, and is described as a place with two distinct moods and spaces, the casa cocina or house/kitchen, a place for coffee and a quick snack, and a bar for beer and tapas. The interior, created by architects and husband and wife team Ruben D. Gil and Gretta R. Valdés, features a combination of light wood ceilings, adobe walls, dim lighting and steel furniture.

This contemporary interior and the dual nature of Tamarindo’s space is distilled down into its visual identity designed by Mexican studio La Tortillería and extends across a variety of collateral including business cards, stationery, packaging, menus, coasters, tote bags and custom glass bottles.
