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.
Design studio Two Times Elliott have just published their recent brand identity work for Odmé, a Paris fashion brand that creates handcrafted, elegant and timeless accessories with understated and urban sensibilities.
The studio’s solution—which includes a logo, logotype, website and collateral—plays very well to the luxury and crafted conventions of the industry and the urban qualities of the brand through the expense of what looks like a black foil letterpress business card, the responsivity of a website that mixes street photography with decay and graffiti, plenty of space and a bold secondary serif, and the restraint and perceived exclusivity of a blind deboss leather tag.
Hoola is a women’s specialist D plus swimwear brand launched in 2006 with the intention of creating “beautiful and supportive larger cup swimwear” as an antidote to “bras masquerading as swimwear”. Commissioned to refresh the brand’s visual identity, Two Times Elliott developed a design solution based around the theme of horizons that juxtaposes a bold single spot colour with a classic foil print finish across a white substrate.
