MDD9 is a Hong Kong and London based multidisciplinary architectural and interior design studio, founded in 2009, that is engaged in a variety of building and construction projects that include new developments and renovations, urban planning, lighting, landscape and acoustic design. The studio’s visual identity, developed by Two Times Elliott, reflects the “dynamic outlook” of the individual architects as well as their collective and holistic interior and exterior approach, through a flexible typographical concept and material contrast, one that achieves both a communicative and aesthetic impact.
Vibe Design Group are described by Studio Constantine, the design studio behind the brand identity of Vibe’s new sub brand Select, as a “multi award-winning Melbourne based architectural design practice” who produce “fiercely contemporary and conceptual buildings for the top end of the Australian residential market.”
Studio Constantine worked with Vibe in the process of “productising and branding a new consulting service, parallel to the main design practice” intended to “open up Vibe’s design thinking and experience to a design conscious market that would normally be prohibited by budget” through a service that “comprises of a 2 hour troubleshooting consult, a package of tailored reference and inspiration material, and an introduction to a network of high-end suppliers, built over years of experience in the market. All for a set price.”
The studio describe their design solution as needing to “relate to the pre-existing Vibe Design Group aesthetic and identity, yet sufficiently separate to distinguish the consulting service from the design practice” which was achieved by typographically referencing the Vibe identity through a lowercase ‘select’ and utilising a monochrome colour palette to keep the whole suite ‘understated’, ‘stylish’ and ‘contemporary’.
Regional Associates are a dynamic, interdisciplinary and international architecture and research consultancy “committed to developing new models for the integration of environmental, social and economically sustainable projects” within the fields of eco-tourism, public infrastructure and private residential projects.
Regional Associates’ new visual identity, designed by Oslo based multidisciplinary and international design agency Commando Group, reflects the consultancy’s decentralised, flexible and mobile approach to architecture and research through an expanding and contracting monogram device that fits a variety of formats in print and online, a sans-serif logotype and the edge painted detail of the business cards.
