  • Lavernia & Cienfuegos' do it yourself revival for EXPERIMENTA66

    "EXPERIMENTA’s editor and publisher, Pier Luigi Cattermole, asked us to design the first issue for the new stage of the magazine – a challenge we just had to accept," say Lavernia & Cienfuegos. "After three years online, EXPERIMENTA returns to print. It was paused at number 65, and now each issue will be dedicated to a specific theme and the design will be assigned to a different studio or designer. But the great thing about the rebirth is that EXPERIMENTA continues to be EXPERIMENTA, picking up where it left off at number 66. For this reason we were respectful to the magazines past culture and maintained two of its most identifying features: the format and the masthead. For the inside spreads we collaborated very closely with EXPERIMENTA’s long-standing designer, Antonio Rodriguez. L&C focussed its attention on the cover and article openers. Since this issue has a do it yourself theme, we proposed that the reader make their own covers: a blank canvass in which to compose the title “DO IT YOURSELF” using the die-cut letters provided, white on the one side and black on the reverse. We chose Steelfish as the typeface for its strong and bold features. The typeface is also used on the article openers, where the key title word is highlighted and from there the rest of the page elements are composed. We are proud to have assisted from the front line in the rebirth of an editorial project that talks, reflects and breathes design, which was never meant to disappear. EXPERIMENTA is dead! Long live EXPERIMENTA!"

  • Non-verbal club create an identity inspired by retro games and tech

    "Cosmicode is a newborn app development company focused on projects for the web and mobile devices.They're also the brilliant league of gentlemen who've coded our website, to whom we'll forever be grateful," Non–verbal Club state on their latest project.  "As a result of this creative partnership we were asked to design their visual identity.

    The web is nowadays a very flexible world in which things change and adapt their behaviour according to the media or platform they're placed at.We're no particular fans of static or confined identities and rather prefer open design principles that leave room for interpretation and evolution throughout time. Cosmicode's focus on a digital presence provided the perfect opportunity to use some of these responsive principles as a general rule for their communication.The logo consists of two "squarish" C's, heavily influenced by the aesthetics of retro games and tech. In the print world, these shapes can grow and interact with each other in different ways, becoming more compact or loose, separated or intertwined in different situations. The digital world provides better opportunities for movement, and even then it can have a very fluid or stop motion like animations.

    Overall this is a simple design project for a starting tech company. Time will surely provide the opportunity to further develop the language and principles started here.While the complete portfolio website is still under development, we've resourced to a very simple splash page with a responsive version of the identity. The logo adapts itself to the length of your browser window and is reversed to a white version over a black background on the most vertical mobile displays."

    Non–verbal Club is a communication design studio – formerly known as Atelier Martino&Jaña – recognized for its particular focus on designing for cultural clients. Over the years, they have developed a vast knowledge and experience working on multi-faceted books, visual systems for graphic identities, and posters for music and theatre events.

  • Bleed showcase a stunning identity for Blank Architects

    Blank is a group of Russian architects located in Moscow that needed a new identity and website. The logotype consists of an international and timeless typography and an icon that is both modern and classic. The icon is an abstract representation of two architectural expressions; One expressive, curved, organic (B), and the other more straight, solid and functional (A). We use it as an emblem, a signature to reinforce the human approach of Blank. The idea of the identity was to focus on the name Blank as the idea of perfection, as in the quote by Samuel Beckett: 'At the end of the day, my last work will be a Blank piece of paper,'  say Bleed.

    As a result, we created a minimalist identity and website that is functional and clear, combined with more progressive and creative ideas. The generative design were developed with the purpose of emphasising key aspects of Blank's architectural and creative approach, helping them attract new projects not only by references and finished output, but also by their attitude and principles towards their discipline. Each composition reacts to the character count of a given quote, and has been developed for use in both print, web and installation context.

  • Typology: The Classification of Typefaces two ways

    "The book consists of two parts – the main book and a typeface specimen. The main book features the different categories of typefaces, while the specimen only showcases the typeface ‘Albertus MT’. The two separate publications are bound together where the layering format and exposed binding method reenact the intended sense of playfulness" says Rosamund Chen, on her typogragraphic project.
