The Best of BP&O — June 2017

Selected by Richard Baird.

The Best Branding, Packaging & Publishing of 2017

June’s highlights included Studio fnt’s work for SeMA exhibition Highlights, Föda’s cheerful brand identity for June’s, and Mucho’s continued work with LGBTQ film festival Frameline. There were, however, five projects that stood out, and have made it into BP&O’s Best Of Series. These typically balance a strong singular concept, or an appropriate confluence of ideas, with a compelling stylistic character and clear communicative intention that appropriately plays with form, colour, type and layout, as well as material, texture, image and print finish.

Throughout June, BP&O also continued to expand on its collections series as another way to jump through to older posts on the site. New additions include Material Thinking, Modern Luxury, and Klim Fonts. Updated projects included Bond’s work for Sushi & Co, Clase bcn’s brand identity for Enea, and Zak Group’s collaboration with Paco Rabanne.

BP&O Collections — Material Thinking

Selected by Richard Baird.

A collection of brand identity and packaging design projects published on BP&O that feature a distinctive material component, be that in external shape or internal structure, choice of substrate or print finish. This post includes work by Bibliothèque, Bedow and Mucho, and covers a variety of print finishes, material choices and production techniques.

Although many of the featured projects could be described as being stylistically compelling, their materiality is firmly rooted in concept, rather than the final beautification of type and image. For example, Mucho draw on locality for their work with Sant Francesc, Bibliothèque channel European and South Pacific heritage across the menus for restaurant Mere, and Filthymedia play with the industrial associations of Boxpark.

This post looks to showcase a variety of approaches, and intentionally moves between the abstract and the literal, the visceral and intellectual, and from the simple to the rich. Be sure to click the images to read more about the ideas that underpin the material expression of each project. This post will be continually updated, so bookmark and check back later, or take a look at more BP&O Collections here.
