The Best of BP&O — April 2018

April’s highlights included dn&co’s generative identity for Broadgate, RE’s work with the Sydney Design Festival and Studio South’s collaboration with illustrator Egle Zvirblyte for Gogo Daddy. 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 visual character and clear communicative intention that appropriately plays with form, colour, type and layout, as well as material, texture, image and print finish.

BP&O, in this end of month review, tries to recognise both the smart use of small budgets—those that channel spending into the most appropriate assets—and those projects with a broad and holistic quality, establishing a continuity (conceptual and/or visual) across multiple touch points.
