Bedroc is a Tennessee-based consultancy firm that takes complex business issues and simplifies them with technology to reduce risk, optimise efficiency and creating revenue for its clients (ROC). The firm’s visual identity, created by multidisciplinary design agency Perky Bros, avoids the conventions of the industry and instead favours a direction that draws an analogy between bedrock and technology—the physical stability, sub-surface and base nature of bedrock and the in-depth and founding technological principles and practices of the business—through a logotype and collateral combination that has a layered and earthy quality.
Melbourne-based design studio Cloudy Co. have recently developed the wine label design for a limited edition collection by Jamsheed created exclusively for award winning Surrey Hills restaurant Bentley.
Based around a halftone illustrative interpretation of traditional Persian patterns alongside a tactile thermographic ink process and utilitarian typography, Cloudy Co.’s design solution delivers a really love sense of detail within detail, texture and colour. It transforms the geometric into the organic through contemporary technique infusing the label with a rich depth and density that resonates well with the often complex flavour profiles of wine and the art and craft nature of its production, while also conveying the modern philosophies and interior design of the restaurant.
