Big update by Berger & Föhr, a graphic design studio based in Boulder, Colorado.
One of my most favourite UK studios, has finally updated their site & branding. A-Side Studio, from Falmouth in Cornwall, have cracked it again. Love the 12 projects only approach and case studies, not to mention the work itself. Solid, playful typography, branding and editorial design.
It’s 3 years since we last featured TwoPoints from Barcelona, and since then they’ve continued to produce great visual identity & editorial projects.
The London & Zagreb-based studio Bunch designed an A5, modular concept box for Nosive Strukture, a structural engineering office in Croatia. This company presentation box can be updated with additional assignments in the future, and can hold around 7 to 10 concertina cards, each representing one project.
This amazing project is their most recent work, and is also an update to the entire Nosive Strukture identity project, characterised by it’s clean-cut lines in black and white inspired by the tensegrity concept. Now with this update we can see a more playful side of the company, without leaving the structured-chaos aside. The bold colors give the project some contrast, plus the geometric forms and editorial elements on the document cards reinforce the modular theme. These cards are different in the number of pages and printed on various stock that best fits their client’s task.

Firmalt is a multidisciplinary design studio from Monterrey, Mexico. They provide unique creative solutions that develop and position brands, creating strong visual concepts that communicate clear ideas, add value, and differentiate from the competition. Firmalt has been around for exactly one year, they started operations in October 2012.
How would you describe your design style and aesthetic?
In short, we like to think our style is clean and refreshing. The longer answer would be that we try to keep our style in constant evolution, which is a challenge. Since each project has its own aesthetic and inspiration, we get different results. Sometimes it is impeccably clean and refined, other times quirky and erratic. All in all, high quality is what we want our design to represent. Precise in the details, smart in the execution.
Where do you get inspiration from?
Everything. Although it might seem like a dumb answer, allow us an explanation. We draw our main inspiration from our clients. We like to hear all about their company; their work process, products, service, and anything else relevant. We take all that information, and find a story that weaves it all together. This story can take us anywhere. Be it vintage butcher shops, extinct legal tender, or simple point to point connections, we get inspired from all kinds of things. These stories give us a clear inspiration, and are what tie all the individual elements within the brand together. With this process we are able to create brands with substance that represent a clear message and/or idea. Also, we like the Swiss.
Monterrey is a very relevant city design-wise, there has been an important movement happening in the past decade and a rise in design studios and an overall quality. Firmalt is part of this new generation of design studios, how do you feel about the context that enabled this?
Monterrey is the third largest city in Mexico. A beautiful industrial city, it has the largest number of schools, institutes, and universities per capita in the country. The result is well educated and highly motivated individuals, which leads to a city of entrepreneurs. These new businesses compete in a market that is mature, and the margin for differentiation slim. This is where this new generation of design studios come in. By providing intelligent design services, these entrepreneurs can compete and position themselves in the mind of the consumer, and effectively compete against larger and more established organizations.
London agency Stereo have launched their new site, packed full of two years worth of previously unseen work.
You’re probably all aware of the sites run by Armin Vit & his wife Bryony Gomez-Palacio who have been working together as UnderConsideration for the past 12 years. One of their many divisions is Brand New – an excellent community dedicated to sharing & discussing corporate and brand identity designs / re-designs.
BN spin-offs include the annual Brand New Conference and Brand New Awards. This years conference was held in NYC and Armin has provided a rare insight into the whole production process of branding the event. Featuring 600 hand sewn covers, individually paint-dipped bags and even printed m&m’s, its an example of an event well considered and brilliantly executed.
