February’s highlights included new packaging for Teahouse Exclusives by Peter Schmidt Group, Kurppa Hosk’s brand identity work for carpet manufacturer and distributor Ogeborg, Fuzzco’s work for candle and gift retailer Candlefish, and the visual identity for Eden Project’s Big Lunch Extras designed by Believe In which features illustrative work by Parko Polo. However, there were five projects that really stood out and have made it into BP&O’s Best Of Series, a feature that brings together the most interesting and unusual projects published on the site each month for another opportunity to be seen and shared.
Opinion by Richard Baird.
Ogeborg is a Swedish, family-owned, manufacturer and supplier of high-quality carpet to the commercial sector, partnering with real estate owners, architects and interior designers since 1968. Stockholm based graphic design studio Kurppa Hosk worked with Ogeborg to develop a new strategy, visual identity treatment and website that would not only reflect some of the culture of the business but would help them to distinguish themselves within a market that appeared to offer little in the way of differentiation. The project extended to bags, swatch book, business cards and sign.
