Agency: T&E Polydorou Design (polydoroudesign.com)
Designer: Tasos Polydorou
Nation: Cyprus
City: Larnaca
Client: Cyprus Government


Overview: Logo Competition for the Cyprus Presidency of the Council of the EU 2012
Challenge: Its ability to depict the European Union and its values as a whole. Its ability to depict the Council of the EU as well as the spirit of the Cyprus Presidency of the Council of the EU by emphasizing the promotion of such aspects as: Social cohesion. The notion of bringing the EU closer to the European citizens. The need for renewal and innovation of the European policies in order to achieve more effectiveness and balance. The ability of the EU to develop further and to advance on the basis of values such as solidarity and cooperation, which characterise its member-states. Its ability to depict the Republic of Cyprus and its role in the EU in particular vis-a-vis the role of Cyprus as a crossroads of cultures and continents.
Solution: T&E Polydorou Design - Logo submission (for the competition for the Cyprus Presidency of the Council of the EU 2012) The main feature of this logo is the dove, which is at the core of the emblem of the Republic of Cyprus. It represents the free spirit of Cyprus and is Illustrated repeatedly in various colours creating a spherical whole. The doves are depicted spreading their wings, to express the role of the EU presidency which takes all the member states 'under its wing', and serves as the umbrella as well as the host, for the duration of its term. The multiple colours express the diversity of peoples and cultures within the EU and the fact that Cyprus – indicated by the doves – will apply its spirit to the different member states, as it fulfils its role during the presidency. The doves are skilfully arranged not only to represent the unity and solidarity of the spherical shape, but also to create a star in their centre; the star of the European Union. As a whole, the impact of the logo is one that reflects: · a union of individual and free nations (the series of doves), · its solidarity and balance (the sphere), · its cooperation (the balance of the different doves), and · the Cyprus presidency (in the letters that accompany the icon).

Horniman Museum and Gardens rebranding


Total - 56


Agency: Hat-trick (hat-trickdesign.co.uk)
Designer(s): Gareth Howat, Jim Sutherland and Alexandra Jurva
Nation: UK
City: London
Client: Horniman Museum


The Horniman is a fascinating gem of a Museum in South London. It has internationally important collections of anthropology and musical instruments, as well as an acclaimed aquarium and natural history collection. Originally founded in 1901, it was the creation of Frederick Horniman, Victorian tea trader and voracious collector of almost anything. The brief we were given was to create a new brand that reflects the new unified offer of the renowned Museum collections and the beautiful redeveloped Gardens. The idea of a "collection of collections" was our starting point for the identity. We took the idea of a bracket device and reflected it to create the distinctive H mark. This gives a very flexible device to present the variety of the collections and the many different facets of the organisation. It can be used both with imagery and editorially. The new identity uses a simple black and white core colour palette, complemented by a range of fresh, bright of colours inspired by the objects in the collections. We were also involved in the design of all wayfinding and external signage around the grounds including interpretation signs and maps.













Van Gogh Museum


Total - 52


Agency: Koeweiden Postma (koeweidenpostma.com)
Nation: Netherlands
City: Amsterdam
Client: Van Gogh Museum


Overview: The Van Gogh Museum, the most visited museum in the Netherlands and one of the top museums internationally, has been given a new face. The reason for the change was the desire to make the visual identity more consistent. In the light of the museum's worldwide exposure and the emergence of new communication channels, the Van Gogh Museum asked Koeweiden Postma to take a critical look at its entire visual identity, including the logo. One of the first things that became obvious was that the signature of the museum, its logo, needed to be a lot stronger. The existing logo simply did not stand out enough. In addition, we wanted to find a visual identity that is much more specifically Van Gogh. To this end, we worked with the curators to select a number of characteristics which stand for Van Gogh and his work: his technique (brushwork), colours from his most important works from different periods and his letters and quotes. From these elements, a new visual identity was developed which has broad applications but in which Van Gogh can nevertheless be recognised at a glance.
Challenge: Axel Ruger, director of the Van Gogh Museum: 'By doing this, we are broadening and deepening our story and adding new elements. In this way, we are passing on his legacy to new generations in order to keep his inspiration alive.' Jacques Koeweiden, creative director of Koeweiden Postma: 'We wanted to use the many facets of Vincent van Gogh to enrich the new visual identity of the Van Gogh Museum so that we could tell two stories: the story of his work and the story of the world behind his work.' Picasso in Paris - To develop a specially designed letter/logo that refers on an associative level to the Paris of the early twentieth century, art nouveau, Picasso and Cubism. Because of it's specific shape this letter was also the basis for the logo. It should also be leading in the whole merchandising of the exhibition.
Solution: Brushstroke: Together with the collections department, we went looking for the work with the most characteristic brushstroke. The one chosen was 'Wheatfield with reaper'. Footprint: From the brushstrokes in the painting, an abstraction was made which we call the 'footprint'. The footprint can be used in various excerpts and weights. The benefit of the 'footprint' is that Van Gogh remains recognisable even when no work is depicted. Quotes: Van Gogh's letters are an important part of the museum's collection. They give a personal insight into the life and works of Vincent van Gogh. This is the reason why his quotes have been given a prominent role. The quotes can be used alongside or in place of images. Quotes can also be combined with the footprint as a background. Picasso in Paris - Like many other artists in Paris in the early twentieth century, the young Picasso found inspiration in African figurative art, particularly masks. The letter design is the bearer of all brand carriers, from signage to poster and from car lettering to admission ticket.

Nation: Netherlands
City: Amsterdam
Client: Nederlands Dans Theater


Overview: The Netherlands Dance Theatre is one of the best known modern dance companies in the world, with choreographies by Jiri Kylian, Hans van Maanen and William Forsythe.
Challenge: When the NDT asked Koeweiden Postma to develop a new identity, the greatest challenge was how to get as close as possible to the essence of what makes the NDT so unique.
Solution: We took our departure from the dancers themselves, and invited them to dance letters in a motion tracking studio. This marked the start of a unique and intense collaboration. This intensity is reflected in the distinctive typography and visual language that form the basis of the NDT's visual identity.

Hörst


Agency: lg2boutique (lg2boutique.com)
Nation: Canada
City: Montréal
Client: Jean-Sébastien Octeau (Angomode)


Overview: Hörst is a men's clothing brand that has been distributed in different boutiques across Canada for the last 15 years. The high-end collection contains mainly suits, coats, shirts, accessories and dress clothes. Hörst offers the modern man an authentic way of being. Its philosophy rests on the German values of impeccably tailored cuts and quality craftsmanship, producing a confident and inspiring style. Despite this solid philosophy, Hörst had been suffering from a poorly defined brand positioning for some time. Consumers considered it too expensive for what it saw as a mid-range line; the brand simply wasn't well known or respected enough to be considered high end. Lg2boutique was given the mandate to redefine Hörst's brand positioning, create an all-new brand platform and apply it to the entire collection.
Challenge: As part of a complete restyle of the brand platform for Hörst, a designer and manufacturer of high-end menswear, the brief covered the creation of all communications tools, including the logo. The objective of the logo was to communicate in store the new Hörst brand that draws from its German heritage and the character of its male target. A shopping devotee, Hörst’s target is constantly on the lookout for that little elegant or eccentric something to reaffirm his style. He is a mature man who maintains a somewhat mysterious air. Seduction, in his view, is a game. With a slight penchant for the extravagant, he is the embodiment of the modern-day dandy. He takes great pleasure from his lifestyle, never slavishly bowing to the dictates of fashion. Going to the barber, learning music or taking the train for business are all things he makes time for. His entire person is seductive, rising above the everyday. He is authentic.
Solution: Hörst’s logo positions the company as an authentic brand that combines romanticism and elegance. Inspired by its target client, a modern-day dandy, the new logo also celebrates both the richness of Hörst’s German heritage and the modernness of its style.

Challenge: Reflect Lights is an architectural lighting design and lighting supplying company, located in Thessaloniki Greece, aspiring to unstintingly support and contribute to the materialization of the personal visions set by creators of buildings and spaces. Placing particular emphasis on the architectural approach to the relation between light and shade and steadily following new technologies, the company is aiming to constantly confirm its design proficiency, technological perfection and aesthetic approach.
Solution: Our design solution not only attempts to capture the key features of the company's activities but also to express visually the contemporary philosophy and perception on issues relating to architectural lighting. Having as a foundation the fact that light is not an one-dimensional form and taking into consideration those linear elements that embody an architectural study, we tried to escape the constraint and awkwardness of one-dimensional approaches, which limit the portrayal of light itself, and created a graphic environment so as to capture the basic principle of light reflection within space not only as movement but as instinctive freedom and randomness as well. Light and shadow are portrayed through the use of different tones of black and grey while at the same time allowing for flexibility, even when using the symbol in monochrome applications.

Systems Thinking

Agency: Higher (behance.net/higher)
Designer: Alex Veresovich
Nation: Slovakia
City: Bratislava
Client: Systems Thinking


Overview: Since 1989 Systems Thinking improves the service quality of internal services. Systems Thinking do this by measuring and benchmarking these internal services. For organisations to function effectively there are a broad number of internal services that must be provided. These services such as Human Resources,Information Technology and Finance, underpin the acquisition, retention and development of customers. With Information Technoogy as the exception; the quality of most internal services is not measured. Systems Thinking conduct an initial user satisfaction survey to establish a baseline for each internal service. The survey questions focus on the key aspects of internal service delivery and cover areas such as: responsiveness, understanding business needs, proactive and reactive communication. Systems Thinking has developed its own purpose built software for surveying and reporting on internal service quality. Up to fifteen identifiers (parameters) are available to analyse the collected data. Being able to identify responses by business group or job role enables us to develop targeted and effective service improvement programs that other survey software can't do.
Challenge:Systems Thinking had no consistent branding across web and other mediums. Website was out of date, static and poorly promoted. Systems Thinking looked to modernize their image and align their image and market position. Systems Thinking required an "image makeover" that would stay relevant for the next three – five years. The brand would be applied at all customer touch points. The new branding would be used to re-launch Systems Thinking and the services we offer.
Solution: In our visual solution we wanted to create a "perfect" system which contain many parts but works smoothly and effectively. Shape of circle was quite suitable for our experiments. In result we created flexible inner segments - parts of systems in constant motion and collaboration. Sign appeared very modern and quite trendy and was completed with custom, bespoke typography.

Roundel Motorcars


Total - 35


Freelancer: Josh Hayes
Nation: Australia
City: Winchelsea
Client: Matthew Clemmons - Roundel Motorcars


Overview: Based in Atlanta, Georgia USA - Roundel Motorcars are not your typical used car dealership, It's their driving passion for pre-loved vehicles & customer service that help find the perfect car for the right buyer. The logo to be developed needed to convey the following; A love & flair for pre-loved (not used) cars, a sound knowledge of car makes & models as well as a general understanding of automotive mechanics & lastly it is about finding cars, not the flashiness of car dealership.
Challenge: The biggest challenge was to create a design that had the classic vibe, without looking dated and/or unapologetically retro. Although I had free reign conceptually, I wanted to convey something that was fairly unique to the target car makes/models - Family cars, circa. 1970's & 1980's. The finished mark was inspired by an early 70's column shift.
Solution: The idea came from the original tagline idea suggested by my client "Your automobile is our passion". Not a bad tagline, just in need of some TLC. Shortly after the brief was written up, I began thinking about a more dynamic tagline that was both catchy & suited the demographic. Eventually "A Driving Passion" was born. Having the enclosure over the D is not only mechanically correct to the source material (gear shifter display) but it demonstrates the the car is in drive, implying motion & a direct reference to the tagline. The most important typeface is the display face for ROUNDEL, it needed to be 'period correct' for the style of car, Tungsten by H&FJ was the perfect candidate to its narrow form & blockiness. I wanted to keep the colour scheme as authentic as possible & being used cars, I wanted to capture that 'pre-loved' atmosphere as well. Deep (sun bleached) grey instead of black – for a faded dashboard insert, cream to represent the discolouration white plastic gets over time & finally orange for the backlit L.E.D display when the 'Drive' gear is engaged.

Client: Tinedo Winery


Overview: When we considered the design and communication strategy for Tinedo in its new era, we had something very clear: We wanted to reflect on current trends in the wine world, to show our proposal for innovation and commitment from the concept of wine as part of culture. We approached Gabriel from lsdspace and Cristina from lcnx who after they had visited the winery and knew us better, proposed working from a concept of honesty and consistency, showing us how we are: A small and neat family winery, which is being modernized, putting all the effort into the core values, making good wines, pampered from the vineyard to the distribution.
Challenge: Tinedo is not cool, not trendy, not found in media cultural spaces neither in the world of wine. They are not young and don't have an architectural reference winery. They count with a low budget for communication and production. Having into account all the above they try to create an authentic and honest system in which owners, workers and consumers are attached and identified with it. The visual manifestation of such ideas and aspirations is translated into a contemporary language which communicates the cultural values of the land and the ecological and social environments. The graphic resources selected emphasize the narratives and the sense of humor using collage with basic and direct typography.
Solution: We like tha black colour because is a basic and simplificated element. The circle is because make a reference to the base of bottle... the typography is akcident grothesk because is strong and bold like the company. we use collage because is direct and manual.

Avignonesi - Genuine Tuscan Experience

Agency: Duval Guillaume Corporate (duvalguillaumecorporate.com)
Designer(s): Henk Willems - Evi Peeters
Nation: Belgium
City: Antwerp
Client: Avignonesi


Overview: Avignonesi is a well-known Vino Nobile di Montepulciano estate in Tuscany. Their Vin Santo is one of the most famous wines in Italy. Avignonesi consists of four wine-producing estates. In total, they comprise 225 hectares of open ground, 109 ha of vineyards and 3 ha of olive groves.
Challenge: After Belgian businesswoman Virginie Saverys became the owner of the estate, she completely reorganized and rethought Avignonesi, turning it into a biodynamics-driven vineyard and significantly raising the quality of all the wines. She wanted her ideas on reading and respecting the genuineness of the Montepulciano terroir to shine through in all Avignonesi communications.
Solution: After a qualitative study, exchanging ideas with all people concerned, and intense discussion with the new owner, we developed the communication idea that "genuineness" is central to Avignonesi: honesty, respect for the land. Underlining the concept is that Avignonesi is a wine that will give great rewards to those who are willing to invest themselves (producers as well as wine lovers). This idea was 'translated' into a brand book and into a range of communication materials: new wine labels and packaging, signs on the barrels, website, mobile devices, etc. The new wines in their totally revised packaging have been very well-received by wholesalers, selling out in no time. The brand story—with its focus on respect for the land—is clearly understood and appreciated by wine lovers worldwide. They are all too ready to participate in the new Avignonesi story, as the conversation on social websites such as Facebook indicate. Undoubtedly, while enjoying a glass of full-bodied wine...

Designer(s): Nathan Hinz, Paul Sieka, and Alan Colvin
Nation: United States
City: Minneapolis, MN
Client: Jack Daniel Distillery


Overview: Jack Daniel's is an iconic global brand, the best selling whiskey in the world. The brand's values are timeless, but like every great brand, it needed to evolve to maintain its strength and affirm its authenticity in a changing world. Tennessee Honey is Jack Daniel's first flavored whiskey, crafted from a blend of Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey and honey liqueur. Created to invite new consumers into the brand, it delivers naturally sweet notes for a taste that's easy to drink.
Challenge: Designing the brand identity, brand language and label for Tennessee Honey required balancing the brand's equity with cues borrowed from the category of flavored whiskeys. The goal was to introduce new customers to the Jack Daniel's brand without straying too far from the brand's established identity. Tennessee Honey is the first new Jack Daniel's expression in more than a decade, so part of what we had to solve was how to create an identity for the brand's first flavored whiskey, while delivering a product that was unmistakably Jack Daniel's.
Solution: Working with the Jack Daniel's brand team, we deconstructed the Jack Daniel's brand iconography with consumers to understand what elements are most important and why. Using our knowledge of the brand and category, we created a brand identity that delivers the promise of a honey liqueur with natural flavor and sweet notes for a smooth, easy to drink taste. The result is a distinctive solution that feels like it's always been part of the family. Jack Daniel's Tennessee Honey is one of the most successful new product launches in the brand's history. It quickly became the leading brand in its product segment and now sells more than all of its competitors combined. It has been exciting to see the energy and enthusiasm that the product has generated, and how quickly people have accepted the new expression.

Solution: Fiery Pepper's package design features a flame motif on the Southern Comfort shield and necker, illustrating its spicy flavor. The brand identity system uses iconic elements of the 70 proof bottle and extends the visual language to accommodate new flavor variations.

Hörst


Total - 46


Agency: lg2boutique (lg2boutique.com)
Designer: Serge Côté
Nation: Canada
City: Montréal
Client: Jean-Sébastien Octeau (Angomode)


Overview: Hörst is a men's clothing brand that has been distributed in different boutiques across Canada for the last 15 years. The high-end collection contains mainly suits, coats, shirts, accessories and dress clothes. Hörst offers the modern man an authentic way of being. Its philosophy rests on the German values of impeccably tailored cuts and quality craftsmanship, producing a confident and inspiring style. Despite this solid philosophy, Hörst had been suffering from a poorly defined brand positioning for some time. Consumers considered it too expensive for what it saw as a mid-range line; the brand simply wasn't well known or respected enough to be considered high end. Lg2boutique was given the mandate to redefine Hörst's brand positioning, create an all-new brand platform and apply it to the entire collection.
Challenge: Lg2boutique's mandate was to completely restyle the brand platform of Hörst, a designer and maker of high-end menswear. Strategic research and the perceptual axes of the competitive field helped identify an important opportunity: amongst large international players such as Hugo Boss, Versace, Strellson, Paul Smith and Ermenegildo Zegna, seduction proved to be the most ignored perceptual axis. This insight held great potential and offered the brand a credible positioning with which to enter the high-end market.

Shokoko

Agency: Nimax (nimax.ru)
Art Director — Ulyana Kozhevnikova, Designer — Pavel Konyukov, Illustrator — Nikita Kokarev
Nation: Russia
City: Saint-Petersburg
Client: The «Shokoko» company rents out confectionery machines


Overview: The company provides desserts for parties and celebrations and leases confectionery machines — chocolate fountains, fountains with drinks, machines for making candy-floss and soft ice cream. As of the time of applying to us the company was just being established and needed a name as well as the visual identity.
Challenge: To develop a name, logo, corporate identity and to design promotional materials.
Solution: Chocolate or champagne fountains are true splendour. That's why we were searching for a metaphor of a posh life and turned to the age of the Baroque and Rococo. That age is known for luxury and excessiveness at the French king's court. It inspired the idea of the name and the corporate identity of the company. By combining the words «chocolate» (in Russian it is pronounced as «Shokolad») and «Rococo» we got a light, slightly flirtatious and ironic «Shokoko». We were guided by the same principle when creating the logo, which develops the idea of excessiveness. The logotype is both a chocolate fountain and a royal crown. Stories of the royal mistresses added to the corporate identity. Each of them symbolizes and describes one of the company's services. Ladies adorn the «Shokoko» leaflet and the web-site, which we have developed for the company. For each mistress we've also made up a legend, that fits the overall concept of the project.

Designers: Jim Sutherland and Gareth Howat
Nation: UK
City: London
Client: Scott Perry


Overview: To create an identity for design and advertising copywriter, Scott Perry, who works under the pseudonym "Bard of Bray".
Challenge: The aim was create an identity that reflects Scott's personality and his approach to writing. We wanted him to get noticed in an engaging way, and to animate and bring his words to life.
Solution: As a writer Scott loves playing with words. His other love is food. As part of a series of short films created for Scott's website, we had used alphabet spaghetti to spell out one of his golden rules for writing. It struck us that this was the best combination of Scott's two passions, and could be used as an unusual but distinctive typeface for icons. Scott works under the pseudonym "Bard of Bray". The alphabet spaghetti "B" was therefore chosen to represent him. A further range of letters, such as "NB", "EG and "PS" were then created and photographed, to be used to illustrate topics Scott might need to talk about. These have been applied to postcards, stationery, direct mail and his website.

Client: The Museum of salt history "Solzavod"


Overview: Solzavod is the only Russia's salt plant outdoors. The uniqueness of the museum is in authenticity of the architectural complex and wooden monuments, together with reconstructed process chain of salt production, which exists since XV century.
Challenge: To develop corporate identity - modern and attentive to the museum history at the same time.
Solution: For the logo we've chosen a wooden barn as a symbol of whole architectural complex. Crystal lattice is a traditional symbol of salt. In the corporate style salt cube and a salt barn interact with each other. Style colors are blue (salt), brown (wood and archival photos), and white. The purity and simplicity of idea simultaneously make this style contemporary and "timeless". It looks organic both at the museum territory and in modern spaces. Everybody wants to take something from museum, so we've created a diverse range of souvenirs.

Agency: Nimax (nimax.ru)
Art Director — Ulyana Kozhevnikova, Designer — Pavel Konyukov
Nation: Russia
City: Saint-Petersburg
Client: Training center for pickup «Pickup.ru»


Overview: The name «Pickup.ru» speaks for itself (it'a a Russian word for seduction technique). Founded in 2004, it is the largest training center for pickup in Russia by the moment. Former corporate identity of «Pickup.ru» emerged spontaneously and did not mark the company out from its competitors.
Challenge: To develop a system of visual identification, including logo, and to design the carriers of corporate identity.
Solution: At the core of our concept lies the idea of discoveries, dating and relationships of different kinds. We've expressed it through a metaphor of a key and a keyhole. The «Pickup» training teaches how to fit a key to the sole, relationships or body — everyone can choose his own option. Given that a genuine «pikaper» (Russian word for those who are skillful in seduction) never stops on his achievements, the logo of the project is also found in constant development. It is nice when the key and the lock fit each other perfectly. Sad, when they don't. But a professional always has a set of lock-picks at hand. Different key shapes and relationships are reflected in the corporate style of the project.

Skyspa

Agency: lg2boutique (lg2boutique.com)
Designer(s): Maryse Verreault, Caroline Blanchette
Nation: Canada
City: Montréal
Client: Patrick Rake, Jean-Pierre Giroux, Mélanie Daigle (Skyspa)


Overview: Reposition the SkySpa brand and create a new brand platform that it is fully in line with the product: sociable, glamorous, urban and accessible. A number of steps were undertaken in previous years to improve the SkySpa experience. However, the brand had remained tired and out-of-date, its customer touchpoints ineffective. The main goal was to seduce all over again a clientele that most likely had visited SkySpa in the past but had not returned to experience the new incarnation. Target client: - 30-to-40-year-old woman, married with two children - She works full time in an office and has group insurance (allowing her to enjoy massages at little cost) - She has a beautiful house in the suburbs, which she takes excellent care of - She likes to shop. She'd like to push style limits, but her closet is often full of clothes from Jacob, Simons and Tristan. - She is sociable; she likes to entertain from time to time, but with family, she simply doesn't have the time she'd like to spend with her female friends. She uses Facebook to keep in touch with them. - As she likes to take care of herself, she often multitasks by visiting a spa each season with female friends or her partner to recharge her batteries and catch up on the latest gossip at the same time. However, she doesn't always have the luxury of spending a full day at the spa or heading out of town to do so. What she dislikes about today's spas is not being able to talk to her companions when they're relaxing together.
Challenge: A number of steps were undertaken in past years to improve the SkySpa experience. However, the brand had remained tired and out-of-date, its customer touchpoints ineffective. With SkySpa currently undergoing major development and franchise expansion, the time was ripe to rejuvenate the entire brand positioning and platform. An all-new SkySpa opened its doors in December 2011 in Quebec City, with another opening shortly afterwards in Brossard. Other locations will be announced in the future. The spas are spread over 15,000 sq. ft., which includes an enormous 5,000-sq.-ft. terrace. They offer a thermal experience (warm-cold-relaxation), massage therapy (with 18 massage rooms) and beauty treatments. SkySpa is unique amongst spas as it offers an urban open-air experience (the spas are located on a rooftop in the middle of an urban center). Unlike Nordic-style spas, SkySpa's ambience is decidedly less Zen since it is possible to speak quietly on site.
Solution: SkySpa is not like other spas; it doesn't embrace nature, wood or rustic elements. SkySpa's ambience is instead resolutely urban since its two sites are located on a rooftop of a city building. It is also lounge like since clients are allowed to chat quietly in the baths while listening to jazz music. The "urban open-air spa" brand positioning was a natural fit. Sociable, glamorous, accessible and urban are the personality traits that set the creative direction for the new brand platform and ad campaign. SkySpa is now represented by a vertical logo, recalling the architecture of urban buildings, thoroughly modern applications, aspirational pictures and the color red (a link to the old image).

Client: TotalOil


Overview: The company Totaloil plans to develop on an international scale, which is why a brave, up-to-date and dynamic graphic solution was required.
Challenge: The Russian oil and petrochemical market is perhaps one of the least open and transparent of markets. The young, ambitious company Totaloil, an independent fuel trader, was one of the first companies to recognise the need to become more public in its operations. The agency's task was to develop an oil company brand adapted for foreign partners, underlining its individual style and modern image.
Solution: Positioning: "Number one independent Russian fuel trader". The company Totaloil plans to develop on an international scale, which is why a brave, up-to-date and dynamic graphic solution was required.

Client: Bioland Energy Ltd


Overview: Bioland Energy is in the renewable energy business. They are focusing on the research, implementation and administration of alternative energy sources, both for their own as well as third party projects, via Photovoltaic/Solar panels and biomass recycling. 'Bioland Energy' mission is to be a leader in the field of renewable energy not only in Cyprus but also in Europe. They are growing rapidly due to their ability to obtain and combine top quality resources in equipment, materials, experts, workforce, investors and leaders.
Challenge: The goal of the new identity design is to represent our brand identity, corporate culture/work ethic, and mission to our perspective clients. It should be a design, which will help the ones who are unfamiliar with our company to understand our business and high quality service; our excellent performance in design and productivity; the longevity of our products and services, while building a long lasting brand awareness that both the perspective and existing clients can relate to. We will be using the design for our business cards, brochures, prospectuses, public boards, websites and so forth.
Solution: The logo was designed to reflect Bioland Energy's brand values in terms of: · leading position in the filed of photovoltaic systems · international reach and backing · innovative and advanced products, and most importantly · reliability and security as a business / investment partner. The blue colour was chosen because PV panels produce electricity – which has a blue-ish colour. Electricity interacts with oxygen atoms and triggers the release of a blue photon. This is why electrical sparks in air, including lightning, appear electric blue. The chosen shapes resemble cells – just as the solar panels consist of several cells. The font was custom-designed to ensure a perfect balance with the shape of the symbol. The curving and colour of the typeface complements the symbol. It was carefully designed to ensure that it will not 'compete' or 'rival' the symbol. Instead, it matches the contemporary simplicity of the symbol. As a whole, the logo is a visual expression of electrical energy.

Nation: Brazil
City: São Paulo
Client: SIN Implante


Overview: S.I.N. Implant Systems is one of the pioneers and the second largest player in the Brazilian production of dental prosthesis and dental implant systems.
Challenge: The traditional family business was bought by a fund intended to professionalise their management and communication. The transition of the brand should not only sign to the market this change, but also support a new phase of internationalization. The brand faced the dilemma of not being able to change their name, by its recognition in the Brazilian market (which speaks Portuguese) where the name was a sound, well-recognized and accepted option, while facing problems with the reading of his name in the rest of Latin America (in Spanish SIN means WITHOUT) and in the U.S. market also with a negative meaning of the name in English.
Solution: To minimize the problem originally the name was turned into an acronym and it was a new symbol with the letter S and with reference to the spiral of the implant screw is designed to allow the use of the brand both in Brazil and abroad even if accompanied by a new name, if necessary or required on these new markets.

Client: Element Materials Technology


Overview: At the end of 2010, the multinational company Stork, B.V. sold its materials technology division to outside investors. No longer affiliated with its parent, the organization asked Cue to help create a name and brand for the new company. While the project was initiated as a new name and logo, we recognized a bigger opportunity: to create a new-to-the-world brand imbued with all the positive equities of the old company, but with a striking expression that could differentiate it in the marketplace.
Challenge: The brand identity needed to communicate credibility to engineers and industry experts, while still appearing approachable and human. Interviews with customers, employees, management, and industry experts helped reveal a defining proposition for the new organization – one that merged its technical expertise with its commitment to customers. The sharpened proposition became a guide for name generation and evaluation. The name Element describes the company's unique ability to understand the parts as they relate to a whole, to see both the details and the big picture.
Solution: Cue designed a brand identity and voice that speaks to a specialized audience. Element is much more than a company that sells testing. It's the critical link in the supply chain. The brand identity is scientific and clear, but with a friendly, purposeful tone. The brand and its promise are revealed using simple, graphic language that is reprised throughout the materials designed for the brand. As a global, British-owned company based in the Netherlands, the Element brand operates in various countries with different languages and cultures. Branded materials were designed and formatted taking this into account, making sure that Element materials work across continents. The new brand identity is applied to materials in labs and offices ranging from company website, to signage to business cards.

Agency: Hat-trick (hat-trickdesign.co.uk)
Designer(s): Gareth Howat, Jim Sutherland and Alexandra Jurva
Nation: UK
City: London
Client: Horniman Museum


Overview: -
Challenge: -
Solution: The Horniman is a fascinating gem of a Museum in South London. It has internationally important collections of anthropology and musical instruments, as well as an acclaimed aquarium and natural history collection. Originally founded in 1901, it was the creation of Frederick Horniman, Victorian tea trader and voracious collector of almost anything. The brief we were given was to create a new brand that reflects the new unified offer of the renowned Museum collections and the beautiful redeveloped Gardens. The idea of a "collection of collections" was our starting point for the identity. We took the idea of a bracket device and reflected it to create the distinctive H mark. This gives a very flexible device to present the variety of the collections and the many different facets of the organisation. It can be used both with imagery and editorially. The new identity uses a simple black and white core colour palette, complemented by a range of fresh, bright of colours inspired by the objects in the collections. We were also involved in the design of all wayfinding and external signage around the grounds including interpretation signs and maps.

Van Gogh Museum


Total - 52


Agency: Koeweiden Postma (koeweidenpostma.com)
Nation: Netherlands
City: Amsterdam
Client: Van Gogh Museum


Overview: The Van Gogh Museum, the most visited museum in the Netherlands and one of the top museums internationally, has been given a new face. The reason for the change was the desire to make the visual identity more consistent. In the light of the museum's worldwide exposure and the emergence of new communication channels, the Van Gogh Museum asked Koeweiden Postma to take a critical look at its entire visual identity, including the logo. One of the first things that became obvious was that the signature of the museum, its logo, needed to be a lot stronger. The existing logo simply did not stand out enough. In addition, we wanted to find a visual identity that is much more specifically Van Gogh. To this end, we worked with the curators to select a number of characteristics which stand for Van Gogh and his work: his technique (brushwork), colours from his most important works from different periods and his letters and quotes. From these elements, a new visual identity was developed which has broad applications but in which Van Gogh can nevertheless be recognised at a glance.
Challenge: Axel Ruger, director of the Van Gogh Museum: 'By doing this, we are broadening and deepening our story and adding new elements. In this way, we are passing on his legacy to new generations in order to keep his inspiration alive.' Jacques Koeweiden, creative director of Koeweiden Postma: 'We wanted to use the many facets of Vincent van Gogh to enrich the new visual identity of the Van Gogh Museum so that we could tell two stories: the story of his work and the story of the world behind his work.' Picasso in Paris - To develop a specially designed letter/logo that refers on an associative level to the Paris of the early twentieth century, art nouveau, Picasso and Cubism. Because of it's specific shape this letter was also the basis for the logo. It should also be leading in the whole merchandising of the exhibition.
Solution: Brushstroke: Together with the collections department, we went looking for the work with the most characteristic brushstroke. The one chosen was 'Wheatfield with reaper'. Footprint: From the brushstrokes in the painting, an abstraction was made which we call the 'footprint'. The footprint can be used in various excerpts and weights. The benefit of the 'footprint' is that Van Gogh remains recognisable even when no work is depicted. Quotes: Van Gogh's letters are an important part of the museum's collection. They give a personal insight into the life and works of Vincent van Gogh. This is the reason why his quotes have been given a prominent role. The quotes can be used alongside or in place of images. Quotes can also be combined with the footprint as a background. Picasso in Paris - Like many other artists in Paris in the early twentieth century, the young Picasso found inspiration in African figurative art, particularly masks. The letter design is the bearer of all brand carriers, from signage to poster and from car lettering to admission ticket.

Challenge: When the NDT asked Koeweiden Postma to develop a new identity, the greatest challenge was how to get as close as possible to the essence of what makes the NDT so unique.
Solution: We took our departure from the dancers themselves, and invited them to dance letters in a motion tracking studio. This marked the start of a unique and intense collaboration. This intensity is reflected in the distinctive typography and visual language that form the basis of the NDT's visual identity.

IWM

Agency: Hat-trick (hat-trickdesign.co.uk)
Designer(s): Gareth Howat, Jim Sutherland, Rory Brady
Nation: UK
City: London
Client: Imperial War Museum


Overview: -
Challenge: -
Solution: Working with brand strategists, Jane Wentworth Associates, hat-trick design created a new brand for IWM which places its remarkable collections at its core in order to tell vivid personal stories and convey powerful physical experiences which engage people of all ages with the issues of modern conflict. The new brand was developed following an extensive review of the existing IWM brand in order to build a stronger and more focussed identity to increase IWM's presence and power in the marketplace. The new brand brings the IWM family together under the initials IWM (to stand for Imperial War Museums) which will enable IWM to have greater impact in the marketplace and a consistency across all its branches. A distinctive and flexible new mark and visual identity were developed, which encapsulate the brand and the overwhelming force of war. The split blocks, or fragments of the new mark, reflect the force of war to shape people's lives. The mark also strongly emphasises the IWM name and ties each of the branch names to the IWM masterbrand. The graphic angles taken from the mark helped create a powerful visual language, a refreshed colour palette, more coherent typographic style and clearly defined imagery guidelines.

The naming was «Aspect» (this word is translated from English as "appearance". Also the slogan was developed: "good look" which means good appearance. The graphic sign is based on the sign "open here", but it was converted to the opposite meaning "packaged here", the dotted line was also added.
