BRUTO

image

"Wallpaper* magazine invited us to collaborate in a project that would be exposed during design week in Milan. The task was to create 5 food items that were focused around one particular ingredient, also the branding and packaging.

We worked with Alfredo Villanueva, choosing “chili” as our main ingredient, so we could stand out our culture bringing the name of “Mexico” to an international exhibition not only by design but also by it’s gastronomy.

In a world where everything screams, everything is flashy, BRUTO remains an outsider, confirming that what is well made can get along with simplicity. What is startling is not necessarily noisy.”

MUTUO

"Mutuo, two architects proposing solutions that represent an ode to the experimentation. Taking advantage of their different roots, they create new experiences through chaos.

This project allowed us to came out with a particular solution: An identity with no logo, that relies in other resources to accomplish the characteristics of recognition and constancy that branding requires.”

Two Arms Inc. is a ( soon to be husband and wife team ) founded by Mike Tabie and Karen Goheen in 2009. We met 6 years ago in Orlando, FL while working with a local design agency and screen-printing together on nights and weekends. We independently moved to New York but continued to work separately within large and small design agencies. After a year we decided to take the plunge and partner together and start a business with our own vision in mind. There is nothing more satisfying then working with someone you love and trust. We love collaborating and getting our hands dirty. We are specialists of the handmade. We believe in craftsmanship, an attention to detail, and that sweet spot between concept and execution. We started this business because we care about what we do, and we want to work with clients who are passionate about their vision.” — Two Arms Inc.

HERB LESTERLUGGAGE TAG SET

image

"When we aren’t working, we are traveling! Well …traveling to the bodega, traveling to find the best NY Slice, or traveling to the nearest bar… Even if we don’t venture far from our humble Brooklyn neighborhood, we don’t leave without a custom set of four double-sided tags: Air, Rail, Land, Sea. This product was a fun collaboration with our favorite team across the pond, Herb Lester Associates. These tag’s are printed on almost indestructible Tyvek®, a 1950s miracle product that looks like paper but resists tears and water."

Sewing Dreams and Fate - A Poster

image

Inspired by a poem:

"Embroidering my fate with velvet and some moonlight, I hunt stars across the sea as the sun waves me goodbye. Little by little I see perfection awakening my sleepy soul, Sewing dreams and beauty together, hemming my sigh.” — Karla Bardanza

In the Woods

"Visual identity for In The Woods Festival, a one-day music festival held at a woodland location in the UK every summer, aimed at promoting up-and-coming artists and bands from Britain. The exact lineup and venue of the event is kept secret and released to the public only on the day of the event.

Started out as a hypothetical rebranding project done as part of CSM BA Graphic Design coursework, but artwork ended up being utilised for the actual event publicity. Featured photographs and video are from the official In The Woods Festival website.”

Love Me, Possess Me

image

"If paper bags could talk, what would they say? ‘Love Me, Possess Me’ is a statement on commercialism and the attraction that commercial graphic design exerts on modern society, where the key goal is to allure, and to seduce."

"Reynolds and Reyner our philosophy is rooted in the true power of design. We believe it is less about making high quality brand experiences and more about the process at which we engage in, to create a real relationship between our brands and their consumers." — Reynolds and Reyner

Waldo Trommler Paints
The brightest brand of paints

Objective
In 2011 Reynolds and Reyner finished two huge projects redesigning international brands of paints. After that they were asked to develop a new visual identity for a small Finnish company which was planning to enter the U.S. market. Without the past, unlike the majority of existing brands in the segment, but believing in the future, the key to access the market was a package design. “We don’t just need - we must! stand out” - this phrase has become the basis at work on a new brand identity.

Process
How to create a brand that stands out? We need to find the design solution that hasn’t been used by any of the competitors. At the same time showing the main features of the company - friendliness, quality and innovation. WTP is not just a manufacturer of paints - it’s an assistant, always ready to help, suggest and defend from the hassles and problems. Repairs with WTP is simple, convenient and fast and this is what in it’s simple design.

Results
No doubt, WTP is the most friendly and remarkable brand of paints on the shelf now. WTP has no corporate colors - it have the corporate identity, common for each design element - from business cards to packaging. Every item is bright and memorable combination of colors and objects that all together form whole the entire brand. The next step is to prove that the product is as high quality as its outer shell. But this is another story.

The Love Booklet

image

"A few years ago I was in a band and I still absolutely love the material I wrote back then. This project has no greater pretention than to just share this song that happens to be my personal favourite. It is an unusual approach to love: It talks about being frightened by the feeling of losing control, of not knowing exactly what’s happening inside. I firstly thought about working on a single poster. However, the use of so many typographic styles wouldn’t work very well if put together on the same sheet. I also thought about making it more colourful, but again, it is meant to be very raw, so the simpler the better. However, I added some colour to some sheets when it was crucial to emphasize the message.

50 of these booklets were made, all by hand (some with a slightly different lettering) for Valentine’s day earlier this year, and they were all give-aways. After all, love ain’t love if you don’t share it.”
