Daniel Hopwood designed by Two Times Elliott

Logo design by Two Times Elliott for Daniel Hopwood

Daniel Hopwood is a small bespoke London-based multidisciplinary design studio – working within the fields of architecture, landscape architecture and interior design – that offers its clients a creative, practical and personal service.

The studio’s identity, created by Two Times Elliott, takes the often ornamental detail of monograms of the past—a traditional distillation of a craftsman’s pride in product quality and individualised service practice—and gives it a very contemporary, geometric resolution with a solid sense of structure— through a simple consistent line weight and negative space—and a duality that mixes an H with what looks like a table and chair pictogram. Set alongside the broad, generously spaced characters of a sans-serif logo-type and a striking economical single red spot colour, the identity achieves a nice but subtle thematic union of layout, build, furnishing and functionality while the use of an uncoated, mixed-fibre, recycled substrate and a blind deboss across the collateral add a crafted, sustainable undertone that conveys an appreciation for material and material texture.

Christopher Elliott by Studio Brave

Logo created by Studio Brave for Australian interior designer Christopher Elliott

Christopher Elliott is an Australian interior designer based in Melbourne with a modern luxurious and clean architectural style. His new visual identity, created by Studio Brave, neatly unifies and communicates the practicality and functionality expected of modern architectural spaces and the fine detailing and high quality of the fabrics, fixtures and furniture that fill these. This is achieved through the juxtaposition of the tall and light uppercase and reductionist forms of a mono-spaced logo-type, light monolinear shapes, plenty of space and the grid-based layout of the website, set alongside the very classic qualities of a tactile, letterpressed, cream, uncoated substrate, gold metallic spot colour and the gilded edges of Christopher’s business card.
