Previously called the Black Swan Prize for Portraiture, the institution has been renamed The Lester Prize for Portraiture in honour of the founding patron Richard Lester.

This shift has resulted in a simple and dynamic identity, cleverly leveraging the universal structure of portraits but in a minimal way. Just lovely…

Such a beautifully crafted icon and identity. Clever and simple.

For a company that distributes furniture and helps with saving space, this identity program is a great example of restraint—balanced with enough character, and in the most appropriate way, while still ensuring legibility remains. I’m quite a fan of this one…

The simplicity of this cover belies its depth. Red conveys passion, anger, danger, and a sense of alarm. It’s also the Republican Party colour—and a colour associated with Russia.

The tight crop suggests an up-close and personal encounter, but with a hint of claustrophobia as things tighten in on Trump. The image itself has ominous overtones.

The title also has multiple interpretations, considering Trump is obviously fearful of the Russia probe and his growing legal battles.
