The Counter Press
Celebrated chef Claude Bosi joined Sir Terence Conran to reinvent the famed Bibendum restaurant in London. The Counter Press have created a new identity inspired by the architecture and fabric of the building. The logotype is an interpretation of the beautiful tiled lettering that sits at the top of either side of the building with the Michelin Man character playing a charming supporting role within the brand.
Printworks London is a new multi-purpose event space that will host events across the arts, fashion, film, theatre. Only have created a new brand for the venue with a flexible framework utilising warped text and effects reminiscent of the printing press rollers at the former 16-acre printing factory. Wrapping type around cylinders generated infinite iterations of the logotype, combined with a bold monotone visual language and techniques inherent to historic printing processes
The Makaton language programme combines speech and signing, to help people with learning or speaking difficulties. MultiAdaptor have re-branded the programme with an aim of ‘Giving everyone a voice’. The symbol combines speaking and signing in one clever little icon, with a hidden speech bubble created between the thumb and forefinger. It’s a logo that anyone can sign, whether they know Makaton or not. The wider identity uses playful language, warm photography and a vibrant colour palette ?
Jack Renwick Studio
Jack Renwick Studio have created a new visual identity for the Carpenters Wharf development on Fish Island in Hackney. For 50 years the site played home to A. Younger, a luxury furniture maker, who shipped timber down the canals to use in their designs. Wood and timber form the inspiration for the name and striking typography. The logo itself cleverly combines a ‘C’ and a fish symbol with the use of a dovetail joint.
