Les Market is an on-line fashion boutique, with a store in Stockholm, that offers a curated collection from brands such as Rick Owens, Kris Van Assche, Alexander Wang and Raf Simons. The store’s visual identity, developed by Planet Creative, establishes – through a bold sans-serif logo-type, a tape, paint and black marker aesthetic, typewriter slab-serif and a monochromatic colour palette – an urban and industrial quality that frames the detail and distinctive style of the garments.
Tegn_3 is a Norwegian, multidisciplinary, architecture design studio that, through inclusive methods, process-oriented and competent project management, deliver holistic solutions that encompass the fields of architecture, planning and landscape, to large clients across Scandinavia. Their visual identity, developed by Neue, draws together the themes of technical knowledge, structure, connections, collaboration and creativity through neutral typography, a modular and expanding geometric pattern, tactile and reflective print finishes, ample white space and the more unusual, playful addition of colour and the engagement of an interactive image generator.
Design agency Essen have recently completed a packaging and rebranding project for Tangent Garment Care, a Stockholm-based company committed to the development of organic garment and shoe care products that aim to ensure longevity. Their design solution – a simple, utilitarian, monochromatic typographical approach – delivers a sense of information purity through the rejection of superfluous language or superficial graphic detail and choosing to divide content only by the uppercase and lowercase typesetting of a neutral sans-serif. A subtle combination that works well to convey a collective brand practicality and researched effectiveness, and the open and honest use of natural ingredients in each product—appropriately placed at the centre of each label.
