FRAHM Jackets
Supple Studio
Matt Baxter:

Frahm is a small, family run business dedicated to making beautiful, technical and detailed jackets. Directly opposed to fast fashion, they operate a pre-order only model, avoiding waste and lowering the environmental impact of their products and processes. Supple Studio was invited to design packaging for these robust, weather-ready jackets. The studio's solution was to fully embrace Frahm's 'Tough Beautiful' mantra, designing a gorgeous range of outer boxes, each featuring a naturally resilient British insect, photographed at macro scale. Supple also designed a full icon set, as well as detailed inner packaging elements and a bespoke outer tape, playfully referencing Frahm's commitment to support mental health charity Mind.


Think Packaging
Seachange
Jamie Ellul:

Think Packaging are a design-led structural packaging agency based in New Zealand. Fellow Kiwis Seachange have given them a new identity that takes the humble cardboard box and elevates it to hero status. It’s artfully done, both playful and slick – with pitch perfect art direction and photography that’s beautifully simple. Topped with great copy and endless details; such as a cutting matt inspired backdrop to website menu and typography that’s as sharp as a Swann Morton. Top marks (and folds).

Littlemore
DutchScot
Mike Reed:

This is such a simple, elegant idea, crafted to perfection. The juxtaposition in the name is beautifully dramatised by the colour blocks – forming, of course, an L shape. The way it shrinks and grows – from little to more and little again – is so pleasing to watch. Chic, smart, unfussy but distinctive. Gorgeous.

#StayHome
Ateljé Altmann
Luke Robertson:

A symbol to rally around designed by Ateljé Altmann promoting people stay home and support the health care system during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Walworth Garden
Studio Sutherland
Alex Swatridge:

A community space in an urban environment. Studio Sutherland wanted to reflect the ideas of growth, support & building through the branding. They achieved this through graphic tessellating shapes which can used as building blocks. They also represent the diverse range of activities going on within the space, from learning to therapy. The identity is based on nine leaf ‘venations’ – the intrinsic structures within every plant leaf. Even the identity itself becomes a vehicle for teaching.

Nike Air Shop
The New Company
Bob Young:

Beautifully alternative and charming work from The New Company for Airshop by Nike manages to feel both retro and progressive in its art direction. Airshop is a new initiative by Nike to feature and celebrate all of its air products into one place. The New Company were responsible for creating a flexible graphic language and art direction that ties together a wide variety of products into a cohesive environment.

Sydney New Year’s Eve
Garbett
Rob Duncan:

Garbett have designed a very clever system for NYE in Sydney. Delightfully, the brand name was contained in the word ‘SYDNEY’ — by swapping the positions of the N and E, they were able to reveal the acronym for New Year’s Eve. Beautifully complemented with an illustration style that feels modern and uniquely Australian, Garbett’s designs have been applied all across the city to ring in the new decade.

Busaba
Paul Belford Ltd.
Rob Duncan:

A wonderful identity, beautifully and cleverly crafted by Paul Belford Ltd. for a Thai restaurant. It’s been years since  I did some marbling. Perfectly representing the lovely spices being blended together. The logo, represents a flower, alluding to the fact that ‘Busaba’ can mean ‘flower’ in Thai. The petals of the flower logo are heart-shaped, drawing on two of the important philosophies that inform Busaba’s culture: ‘sookjai’ and ‘namjai’. ‘Sookjai’, meaning ‘happy heart’. Very tasty!
