Branding and identity guidelines for Editions At Play, a new digital publishing platform for ‘books that cannot be printed’ and immersive literature.
The identity is inspired by books on a shelf and binary code. Bringing the two elements together, the brand mark can develop and grow with different authors’ approaches to the Editions At Play publications.
Enea presents its new identity, designed by Clase Bcn. This new image reflects the furniture company’s Basque origins in distinctive, contemporary fashion and striking, spartan style. The project builds upon a charismatic corporate typeface and a colour range taken from industrial manufacturing to create an identity that spurns the usual industry cliches and sports a strong personality in the world of soft-contract furniture.
Once in a while a project comes along where the combination of name and type of business gives rise to a simple and perfectly fitting outcome.
The famous Victorian thaumatrope, with a bird on one side and a cage on the other, was the inspiration behind this identity which highlights the magic of the moving image.
We worked with Manchester Museums Consortium to develop a new initiative promoting the arts, culture and heritage of Manchester. Creative Tourist was born in 2009: an online arts magazine that now produces cultural itineraries, exhibition previews and food and drink recommendations to over 40,000 readers a month.
We came up with the concept of the ‘creative tourist,’ someone who seeks out the best cultural experiences both at home and further afield. Identifying this target audience allowed us to move Creative Tourist’s focus away from the museums themselves and towards broader – and more effective – coverage of the events and places that make up the North West’s cultural landscape.
We head up the creative direction of the Creative Tourist website and its associated campaigns, including the Manchester Weekender. We continually developed Creative Tourist’s aesthetic identity through consistent type face, colour palate and illustration. Our latest redesign saw the site receive praise from Visit England as an excellent example of cultural tourism.
