Departures is an independent branding and graphic design studio based in Cardiff, UK. They work in partnership with their clients and their work for 1010 Architects and Matt Jones Architects shows their dedication and passion to design. Each displays a relentless commitment to the details that produce an overall cohesive brand. The 1010 Architects identity uses a custom stencil for a stacked 1010, while all other contact information is set in Swift Heavy, designed in 1989 by Gerard Unger for Linotype. The Matt Jones Architects identity exposes the details of Carousel, a typeface from Linotype designed in 2004 by Gary Gillot, into a sculptural form always applied to the piece’s background. From stationery, to drawing sheets, signage, construction scrims, and websites, the logo and brand for these two architecture firms is very successfully applied across all collateral.
