Crosskey is a Finnish company that develops and maintains systems and solutions for the Nordic banking sector and capital markets, making it ‘easier and more profitable for its customers to operate their banks’. Based around the idea “Banking Power!” design agency Kurppa Hosk developed a visual identity solution, which mixes a simple corporate typeface, iconic mark and an economical colour palette, to position Crosskey as an international, modern and powerful IT-company while also reflecting its ambitions to become more competitive not only in Scandinavia but also across the rest of Europe.
Sifang Art Museum is a gallery and creative space located in the Pukou region of Nanjing, China dedicated to art, architecture and international collaboration. Their visual identity, a bilingual logo-type set across a collateral of unusual trapezoidal cut detail and monochromatic colour palette—developed by Singapore-based creative and strategic design agency Foreign Policy—draws together the themes of architectural space, the dimensionality created by light and shadow, the meeting of ideas and the built environment.
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.
