  • Jackson Green raves 90s style with his new project Real Bass Vol. 01

    "Real Bass Vol. 1: Welcome to tha Jungle" was a self-driven multimedia project inspired by the aesthetics of early 90s raves. It consists of a poster, a cassette with an hour-long mix on it, a longsleeve shirt, a zine, and several short promotional videos. The mix can be heard and purchased at www.yrface.bandcamp.com

    Yr Face represents the creative output of Jackson D. Green, a New York based designer working on his BFA in Packaging Design from the Fashion Institute of Technology. The work is predicated on radical experimentation and a reverent disregard for existing design.

  • Pentagram invite us to ACT,consider FACTS and reflect upon ART

    The Storefront for Art and Architecture hosted its Spring 2017 Benefit at the historic Federal Hall in Lower Manhattan. Pentagram designed the identity for the event, which featured the theme “Artifact,” inspired by the location and current politically charged moment. The graphics explore the concept of divisiveness and discord with type and image that seem to degrade, underscoring the dialectical struggle between facts and “alternative facts.”

    Support for the arts is under attack by the Trump administration, and Storefront called on its guests to “celebrate contemporary forms of practice that invite us to ACT, to consider FACTS, and to reflect upon the ART of architecture and design.”

    The location was essential to the theme. Federal Hall is an artifact itself, and the home of many foundational institutions of U.S. democracy. Originally constructed in 1700 as New York’s City Hall, the building served as the first U.S. Capitol, witnessed the inauguration of the first U.S. President, and hosted the ratification of the Bill of Rights by the First Congress. It has been a hub of debate and dialogue throughout the evolution of U.S. political history.

    Pentagram created an identity and materials for the event that capture the escalating discord across the political and media landscape while investigating the role of an artifact in this volatile climate. The graphics address issues of identity and authority with a jarring visual vocabulary that juxtaposes metal-cast blackletter typography—evoking historic documents and newspaper mastheads—with degrading bitmap letterforms and images that transform, break down and come together again.

    This year’s benefit honored the architect Denise Scott Brown, whose practice has pioneered the re-examination of existing urban forms, and Murray Moss, whose design and curation work, chiefly at his renowned store MOSS, has been formative in creating innovative objects (artifacts) from around the world. The event also launched New Artifacts, the first iteration of a new initiative called Storefront Editions that offers limited edition objects by Adam McEwen, LOT-EK and Moss with Lobmeyr.

    Pentagram collaborated with Storefront on a number of previous projects, including last year’s benefit and the exhibitions Closed Worlds, World Wide Storefront, and OfficeUS, the U.S. Pavilion at the 2014 Venice Architecture Biennale.

  • Meet The Dean! Watson & Co brand with witty banters and suave type

    "Meet The Dean. He’s actually a bit young to be The Dean, but he’s smart and has a lot of quality friends, so he’s handling the position quite well. Some say he’s a Providence, RI figure of cultural authority, other people just like to sleep with him. Either way, his strong historical background, eye for design, and general ability to ‘not be a dick’ keep people coming back. To share all of that we handled the branding, got some headshots, and created an all around strategy — website included — for the guy who otherwise seems to need no introduction. We like to think it’s as cool as he is. (P.S. Did we mention he’s hot? He’s hot. And he has cousins. Let us know if you’re going to be in Detroit anytime soon.)" writte Watson & Co on The Dean's - a suave hotel in Detroit- branding.

    "Today’s consumers are savvy, sophisticated, and more cognizant of marketing than ever before. They don’t want to be told to or sold to. They expect great design to be built-in — to their phones, their homes, and even their packaging.We believe the best brands embody the art of their product and then simplify, elevate, and amplify it."

  • Futura brands Black Taiga with alternative typography

    Black Taiga is a cantina inspired on the dystopian future and cultural syncretism, a place that could exist in any city in any given frame of time, an eatery specializing in Asian street food that brings together Japanese buns, Korean tacos, Vietnamese sandwiches and other delicacies; a menu channeled through and influenced by its location: Mexico City

    The design and brand concept contains references to pop culture, from Blade Runner to Akira and the current Health Goth trend. Far-out illustration inspired by manga and the Ero Guro decorate the space.The alternative typography, almost undecipherable, is the product of a mix between East and West is a constant characteristic that unifies the packaging and every design effort, and is accompanied by a kawaii icon that contrasts with the identity.

    Black Taiga, our bet on a subversive branding, a half-open door on what's to come.

    Born in 2008 as an Independent Design Studio, Futura is a boutique-like workshop that seeks to redefine the Mexican design values, maintaining functionality, wit and charisma. Specializing in resource optimization and paying attention to every detail.
    Nowadays their HQ is based in Mexico, but we have clients all over the world.
