Dia have produced a beautiful set of typographic covers for A-Trak. Each cover is a clever interpretation of the track title. All produced in black and white, many of the concepts were derived from the animated version of the title as opposed to the flat graphic idea.

Random Acts for Channel4
Bold & Bold with 4 Creative
Bold & Bold have created a lovely glitchy identity for Channel 4’s short form film series Random Acts in collaboration with 4 Creative. In particular it’s a really clever use of the new Channel 4 brand typeface Horseferry – flipping between the various cuts of the type to create a random glitchy feel to all text. Also the RA condensed monogram for social media is such a simple reduction.
