The Queen’s House Founders Grotesk Mono

QK–RM used Pitch & Founders Grotesk Mono in their programme for the Queen’s House

London-based design firm, QK-RM designed the environmental graphics programme for the Queen’s House. They write: ‘Commissioned in 1616, the Queen’s House is one of the most important buildings in British architectural history, being the first consciously classical building to have been constructed in Britain. It was Inigo Jones’s first major commission after returning from his 1613–1615 grand tour of Roman, Renaissance and Palladian architecture in Italy. The building reflects Renaissance ideals of mathematical, classical proportion and harmony which would have appeared revolutionary to English eyes in its day.’

The design programme uses Pitch and Founders Grotesk Mono with with great sensitivity

QK-RM writes: ‘We were commissioned at the start of a two year master plan to review a new environmental graphics and way-finding scheme. The first step was to remove the myriad of municipal design languages that have crept in to the building in recent years. The new design idea carefully observes the historical legacy of the house whilst acknowledging the contemporary context within which it exists.’

Karbon in use for the Kröller-Müller Museum by EdenSpiekermann

The design firm EdenSpiekermann writes: ‘A hidden gem opens up to the world — the Kröller-Müller Museum is located in the beautiful ‘Hoge Veluwe’ national park, about a 75 minute drive from Amsterdam. It combines the second largest collection of Van Gogh paintings in the world with the biggest sculpture garden in Europe.

‘In spite of the uniqueness of this combination and the memorable art experience it delivers, the Kröller-Müller Museum too often isn’t on the travel plans of many Dutch and most foreign visitors to The Netherlands.

EdenSpiekermann developed a dynamic typographic concept and logo that are based on the customer experience inside and outside the museum walls. It is graphic as well as sculptural and becomes visible due to the interplay between light and shadow. We used Kris Sowersby’s beautifully crafted contemporary typeface Karbon and brought it to life with the help of Cinema4D software.

Meanwhile identity Feijoa

Vllg klim feijoa meanwhile
Feijoa used for the Meanwhile identity by Maud in Sydney, Australia

The project’s designers, Maud, write: ‘Meanwhile is a new menswear boutique located in the exclusive Kings Cross Hills of Sydney. Stocking the finest Australian labels alongside such international greats as Dries Van Noten, Whyred and Dana Lee, Meanwhile is a most welcome addition to Sydney retail in general, menswear specifically.

The identity uses only inked hand stamps combining cost-effectiveness with craftsmanship

‘We created an identity using only inked hand stamps, making it cost effective and low maintenance, whilst still retaining the considered craftsmanship that Meanwhile represents. The Brandmark itself is the joining of an M and a W forming one icon that alludes to a tailors stitch.’

The 400+ page hardback is edited by journalist Michael Barrett, features Kris Sowersby’s typeface Calibre throughout and is published by 6pt Press.’

Tiempos Headline in the identity programme for Art Fad: Contemporary Art & Craft Awards

Barcelona design firm Hey Studio created this whimsical and beautifully graphic identity programme for ArtFad: the Contemporary Art & Craft Awards in Barcelona.

Hey writes: ‘Graphic Identity for ArtFad: Contemporary Art and Craft Awards. The letter A is made by paper, sticking one by one. The studio made 500 handicraft invitations, the only machinery process was the text printing. As a result, each invitation turned out in a different colour and we obtained unique and non-serial pieces.’

Hey Studio also designed the ArtFad 2013 Diplomas for the Contemporary Art & Craft Awards. They used transparent and fluorescent methacrylate with a laser cut that creates letter an abstract letter A.
