Now, a younger group of creatives has responded to the theme with Obst und Gemüse (fruit and vegetables in German), creating new works [...]

No sirens or truncheons here: a minimal identity design for the Scottish Police Federation

2019-06-17T12:09:19+02:00June 17th, 2019|Categories: Inspiration, News|Tags: |

I’d never really considered the branding of the police: their visual insignia to most of us is still based on fairly rudimentary props like helmets, sirens and the odd truncheon here and there. There was no such cliched nonsense when it came to design agency Cause & Effect’s work for the Scottish Police Federation, commissioned [...]

I’ve never been good at riddles: those sort of problems that generally seem to involve cabbages, goats, boats and the like are utterly baffling. So it was interesting to see one such riddle brought toile in such a beautiful, beguiling and psychedelic way by director Winnie Cheung, a Hong Kong-born, Queens-raised, Brooklyn based filmmaker who [...]

At the Venice Biennale, every pavilion has to work hard to be noticed; and while that comes down to the art it houses, it also means the branding and graphic design has to be pretty special. German graphic designer Mirko Borsche was commissioned to create the branding for the Venezia Pavilion in the main Giardini [...]
