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.
Time Pantala is the criticism of the accuracy, bureaucracy and impatience of the system. As a brand of revindicative character, its values are expressed through denial and parodying all those ordinary objects which govern us.
‘There is no time without movement’: that’s the premise from which a brand creates its product. A watch without hands, solid and static, made out of mechanical volumes.
The graphics on rolling paper packets used to be totally decorative. Tropical landscapes, animals, and characters were often pictured, and the letterings were full of ornaments and detail. However this expressional medium has been replaced by set commercial imagery, with defined commercial targets and a clear business objective.
This rolling paper packaging collection offers a confrontation between those two distinct aspects of graphic design, on the one hand functionalism carried to extreme lengths, on the other a moredecorative and ornamental aspect.

Visual identity and course material for Resonera. Resonera (reason, argue) is a course for secondary school students. The course provides an opportunity for students to express their opinions on social issues and highlight their own identity. The visual concept is based on development and expands as the course goes on.

‘Defining Contemporary Art’ is a 500 page anthology for Phaidon, the world’s leading arts publisher. It chronicles the evolution of art over the last 25 years and features 200 pivotal works by artists including Gerhard Richter, Jeff Koons and Damien Hirst. The visual theme of the publication is coordinated by complementing colours and a modular ‘pin-point’ typeface, used playfully on the cover and throughout on chapter dividers.
