BP&O Collections — Die Cutting

Selected by Richard Baird.

BP&O Collections — Die Cutting

A continually updated gallery of brand identity, packaging and graphic design, reviewed and published on BP&O, that include a distinctive use of die cuts. This post features work by B&B Studio, Neue and Believe in, and covers a variety of projects, from simple stationery sets to broader brand identity systems.

Die cuts have been used in a variety of ways. These include the smart use of familiar shapes by Toko for ShopAround, the colouring of the RWA monogram with artwork by Spy, and the playful puzzle pieces of Lundgren+Lindqvist’s brand identity for Roger Burkhard.

Between them, featured work moves between a simple but high impact use of contrast—often juxtaposing product and packaging, material, colour and pattern—to those that are more conceptual, subtly expressing the themes inherent to the brands, products and books they are associated with.

BP&O Collections — Books & Magazines

Selected by Richard Baird.

Book Design Inspiration and gallery

A continually updated gallery of book and magazine design, reviewed and published on BP&O. This post features work by Blok, Toko and Bedow, and covers both fiction and non-fiction. Projects include approaches that, through space and structure, pace the reader, augment content with material concepts and play with flow through different paper sizes, colour and gradation. These move between the striking, memorable and singular in concept, to the visually rich, the idiosyncratic and nuanced, and the literal and abstract. This post features both simple cover ideas to fully realised experiences that include packaging, and those that were designed as individual publications as well as those that are part of a new brand identity system. Be sure to click the images to read more about the project and the intentions of each design, or check out brand books and digital guidelines here, and brochures, lookbooks and catalogues here.
