Identity Designed

Photobucket

The blog 'Identity Designed' features topics and projects of note in the world of brand identity design.

"After approaching the Supermarket to design some launch posters, we were tasked with developing the brand, which needed to reflect the co-op’s core values of being communal, affordable and democratic without appearing too virtuous or elitist. A full identity programme was required including logo, stationery suite, advertising, packaging and brand guidelines.

As the organisation is not-for-profit and production budgets are consistently low, the designs needed to be simple to implement. As a result, much of the packaging and print material needed to be produced in-house."

Pitchfork's Guide to New Years Eve

"No pressure: It's not like you have to have the BEST NIGHT EVER on New Year's Eve. It's not like you have to share a heart-stopping midnight kiss with the love of your life while holding glasses of champagne, surrounded by your closest friends at a totally bonkers, out-of-control party or anything. Right? Right?"

Beach House in Top 5

Photobucket

Beach House's Teen Dream made it to the top 5 of Pitchforks's Top 50 Albums of 2010!
"Advance copies of Teen Dream first started circulating last December, and its billowy synth lines and sleigh-bell accents made it perfect winter listening. But the album made even more sense as the warm weather arrived-- Teen Dream captures Beach House in the midst of a great thaw, the frosty surfaces melting away to reveal full-blooded passion." --Stuart Berman

"Fashion is about the luxury of choice. It revolves around object oriented aesthetic-centered behaviour. It serves as a tangible communication vehicle for messages, desires, aspirations. It is art that sometimes keeps you warm, whilst always striving to keep you cool." -Zoot
