Some top notch identity and brand collateral from Lundgren + Lindqvist for a new London-based design collective called Critical Mass Studio (CM-S). Their mission is to employ “archi­tecture, science and engi­neering to push the boundaries of our language of design. The expertise across various fields is the key to initiating new conversations and opening up a new way of seeing and thinking about our visual culture.” The juxtaposition of analog/digital in the brand and light/dark in the identity material perfectly fits the culture of the studio.

See CM-S and check out more excellent new work that has just been updated from Lundgren + Lindqvist. Also be sure to check this Pinterest board of Architectural Identities – successful applications of graphic design for architecture.

Studio Laucke Siebein is a design studio based in Amsterdam and Berlin, established by Dirk Laucke and Johanna Siebein. They focus on creative strategies, dynamic identities, graphic, and book and web design within the scope of cultural and commercial projects. Among those projects are monographs and identities for architectural firms. Featured here is the monograph for Benthem Crouwel, an Amsterdam-based firm with a history of over 30 years; a booklet for Aurel VR Architecture, a firm lead by Aurel von Richthofen in Berlin; and corporate design and collateral for Holzer Kohler Architekturen, an emerging Zurich-based practice. In each of these projects, a focus on typographic treatment supports the architectural imagery and presents information clearly.

Check out more work by Studio Laucke Siebein and explore these international architecture firms: Benthem Crouwel, Aurel VR Architecture, Holzer Kohler Architekturen.

After 5 successful years as Your Friends, the Oslo-based design studio of Carl Gürgens and Henrik Fjeldberg are splitting up to break new ground and take on new challenges. Among various pieces of design for web, print, and exhibitions, they’ve worked mostly with cultural, educational, and arts-related clients. These two pieces were completed for the Ministry of Culture and Church Affairs for a conference on Ny Norsk Arkitekturpolitikk (The New Politics of Architecture in Norway). The tactility of the identity collateral make the recipient aware of the materiality in architecture and how it affects an experience. A complementary catalogue was developed to promote Norway’s architectural policies and included an architecture primer, the impact of government on architecture, and a repository of Norwegian architecture. Their approach in both of these works emerges from the content, producing a result with strong visual presence and function.

The Cadets 2013

The Cadets 2013

The Cadets, one of the most honored drum corps in the world, recently announced their production for the 2013 season. Originally titled, Both Sides Now, they have since changed the name to Side by Side to better reflect the ongoing discussions on design ideas. The concept is based on contrast, comparison, and conflict and the production will musically and visually express this idea through different elements.

My proposal for the identity of the 2013 show may or may not be used as the identity for the show, but it will appear on the corps first tour apparel next week. The graphic idea is simple and in line with the production’s concept. By placing two chevrons facing each other side by side, it forms the letter “X” which stands for the word “by.” The corps will perform the music of Samuel Barber, a classical American composer, and so a classic typeface was chosen to complement the tone of the music.

See the design for The Cadets identity and read more about this year’s production, Side by Side.

Parc Architectes is a Paris-based architecture agency formed in 2009 by Brice Chapon and Lambert Emeric, working in combining program and structure. Müesli is a graphic design studio, also based in Paris, working in the fields of graphic design, publishing, identity, signage, and web design. With a love for typography, they create surprising and smart design solutions for a variety of industries, including recent work for Parc Architectes. Over the past couple years, Müesli has created the identity, booklet, and annual poster for the firm. The identity is centered around a strong mark that integrates the letter P with a maze-like crest. A condensed sans-serif logotype is contrasted with a serif typeface and further expanded to include a hierarchy of type in the firm’s booklet. Posters created in 2011 and 2012 feature a graphic representation of recent projects.

Check out more work by Parc Architectes and visit Müesli to see more excellent print work. Discovered via Bitique.

Yoshida Design and Maru by Lundgren + Lindqvist

I’ve been following the work of these guys for a while now and I can’t believe I hadn’t featured them on the blog yet. This new identity was the perfect opportunity though. Swedish design and development bureau Lundgren + Lindqvist recently completed a brand identity which included a full stationery set and complementary website for Yoshida Design, a Scandinavian architectural practice with Japanese roots. The result is clean and minimal yet distinctive with four bright spot colors limited to the logo and critical information. Lundgren + Lindqvist also completed earlier this year the identity for Maru, a high-end boutique and showroom founded and curated by architect Motoko Yoshida. Both of these identities display a clear value of simplicity and meticulous craft while injecting Scandinavian and Japanese inspiration.

Check out more images of the Yoshida Design and Maru identities and visit Lundgren+Lindqvist to see more of their excellent work.
