Checklist is a Mexican event planning business that specialises in ‘milestone occasions’ such as birthdays, anniversaries and graduations as well as corporate events. Checklist caters ‘exclusively for their client’s unique needs’ and can also provide options that are environmentally friendly. Design agency Anagrama recently devised an ‘institutional’ visual identity solution for Checklist that mixes the age and authority of a heraldic shield, the premium aesthetic of a gold foil print finish, the playful craft qualities of pastel coloured papers and the utility of a slab-serif typeface.
“No. Six Depot is a family owned, small-batch coffee roaster and café nested in the beautiful Berkshires. Located in a historic train station on 6 Depot St, they serve teas, salts and coffee from small farms and roast on location. Their identity [designed by Perky Bros] juxtaposes a mix of unique rural and modern elements — drawing inspiration from their own backyard railroad and unique approach to keeping it simple and making it true.” – Perky Bros.
“The Finnish Academy of Fine Arts, Sibelius Academy and Theatre Academy Helsinki merged in the beginning of 2013 into the University of the Arts Helsinki. Bond created the complete branding solution for the new university. The strategy for the identity was to create a distinctive set of logotypes based on a common design language, and to introduce an anchor symbol that acts as a point of connection between the university mother brand and the three academy brands. The simple and bold ‘X’ has plenty of meanings, just like art does. The symbol can be seen, for example, as a starting point, a destination, a meeting place, a location, a signature, an unknown force, a warning, an irritant, a question and a solution.” – Bond
