Studio In have recently completed the rebranding and repackaging of Russian smoothie brand Be True. The new design solution rightfully drops the Innocent-esque sketch and similar bottle choice in favour of a coloured foil splash and crown logo executed across a textured paper and a plastic structural design with raised surface detail. This combination of paper, print and structure, a union typically seen in the spirit category where spend is higher, is fused with the established and communicative industry conventions of organic form, a well rendered script logotype, hand drawn illustrative detail, bright contemporary colour and energy – enhanced by plenty of white space – as well as a neat, playful, die cut tree element to effectively convey honesty, natural ingredients and premium quality with a more proprietary finish.
Batishta is a Moscow-based musician who originally began his career with electronic rap group Band’eros. Following a recent split and seeking to establish a solo career, Batishta commissioned design agency The Bakery to develop a new visual identity, website and CD packaging solution for his 5010 album that would position him as a modern urban gentleman and reflect his ‘established celebrity, rooted in street culture and hip-hop’.
Fresh Point is a new and healthy fast food cafe that sells soups, wraps, sandwiches, fresh juice and yoghurt from its location on Nevsky Prospekt, St. Petersburg, Russia. The brand approached London-based agency Designers Anonymous who, utilising a simple leaf/arrow device to communicate fresh and fast, developed a complete visual identity system that included packaging solutions, interior design, POS, uniforms and signage.
