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.’

Meanwhile identity Feijoa

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.’

Milieu Property Metric

Metric in use for Milieu Property by Studio Hi Ho in Melbourne

Studio Hi Ho, the designers of the Milieu Property identity system write: ‘By definition, a milieu is the context or environment in which one lives and is influenced by. With this in mind, Milieu Property is a boutique developer with an emphasis on creating spaces of influence. Interpreting the milieu as a mix of complementary opposites, the stationery suite took cues from the physical nature of a building. Combining industrial box board with premium cotton stocks — playing on the relationship between the inside and outside.’

Metric looks equally strong and crisp when debossed onto cardstock as it does onscreen

National in use for Archives de gravés by Alain Vonck

French art director and designer Alain Vonck used National beautifully in this project. He writes: ‘There is a paradox. Personal data are omnipresent on the web, but at the same time invisible, stored in an immaterial place, making it hard to know their imprint on the web and their importance to us. They seem to disappear once the form in completed, unimportant and ephemeral… Yet, they pile up in databases, they are archived, analyzed… How come these data have such an impact, such perennial value for our physical and virtual identities?’

Inhouse, the Auckland-based consultancy who designed this project writes: ‘Coast, Country, Neighborhood, City stocktakes where Isthmus has come from and, most importantly, highlights the approach and attitude that they wish to take forward. The 25 projects selected illustrate the traits that the practice consider valuable: love of places, commitment to design, the power of ideas and a ‘no boundaries’ approach. The 400+ page hardback is edited by journalist Michael Barrett, features Kris Sowersby’s typeface Calibre throughout and is published by 6pt Press.’

A collection of posters, postcards and letterpress printed invitations were produced to support the launch of Coast. Country. Neighbourhood. City. Isthmus.
