Breakfast Club

Branding agency Anagrama never ceases to impress with their beautiful projects. Here they’ve taken on the branding for a luxury breakfast delivery service located in Dubai, “Breakfast Club.” This company delivers breakfast wrapped up in a package that resembles something received through traditional post, complete with brown paper, stamps, and twine. Here’s what they had to say about the project:

Our branding proposal for Breakfast Club takes inspiration from traditional postal imagery and elements, such as stamps, seals and stickers over Kraft paper, the traditional postage packaging material. Even so, Breakfast Club is a brand that preserves simplicity and cleanliness in its vintage style. The main brand icon is based in the sound of birds singing in the morning, making it the secondary concept, along with a color palette inspired in bright sunshine and the blue morning sky.”

Tangible Memory: The Poetic Photo Frame That Arouses Love in Heart

This photo frame created by Weng Xinyu is part of a larger collection of home items called “Good Medicine Tastes Bitter" that essentially provide the user with a less-than-perfect experience in order to convey a larger idea. The Tangible Memory photo frame has been created to represent the passing of time and loss of memories. If the photo frame isn’t touched by the user, it gets blurrier over time. When the user touches the glass, it reappears.

Quotes on Shit

Designers Jessica Walsh and Timothy Goodman have started this new project called “Quotes on Shit,” where they rescue old, worthless objects and turn them into something new (and, let’s be honest, really frickin’ COOL looking). But here’s the bonus: they’re giving them away for free. If you follow either of the designers on Instagram (Jessica’s is here and Timothy’s is here) and leave a comment on a photo of an object saying why you love it, you get a chance to win the object! Cool.

The Public Theatre ‘14/’15 Campaign

Pentagram’s Paula Scher puts a new slant on her iconic identity for the Public Theater in the campaign for the institution’s 2014-2015 season, launching this month. Designed with Kirstin Huber, Senior Graphic Designer at the Public, promotions for the upcoming slate of productions use skewed typography for a dynamic take on the theater’s signature look. The campaign marks the 20th anniversary of Scher’s continuing collaboration with the Public.

The new approach was first introduced in the campaign for this summer’s edition of Shakespeare in the Park. Set in Knockout, the font of the Public identity, the season typography skews right or left in alternating bands or plays off strong photography. The campaign updates the classic pop look of the Public Theater graphics, which incorporate photographic images against flat color backgrounds, this time in an arresting palette of black, white and yellow.

The graphics makes a dramatic impression on the street outside the Public, where the campaign has been installed in poster boxes that flank the theater’s entrance, as well on matching banners on the restored façade. The campaign can also be seen in a season brochure, in print advertisements in major publications, and on the Public’s redesigned website.”
