Toronto-based Concrete was responsible for the dynamic redesign for Red Earth, a cosmetics brand inspired by the free spirit of Australia.

The entire line was reinvented. The approach established a foundational palette of visual elements that could be used to create an array of dynamic package designs – all different, yet all tied together with a common attitude and visual vocabulary.

KUOS

Melbourne based design studio Mildred & Duck were approached to create an identity for Souk, a new bar and restaurant, that would visually interpret their modern take on Middle Eastern food.

The resulting logo, a playful interpretation of the way Arabic is read from right to left, has been used prominently throughout the space and becomes a part of the entire experience. Coupled with the the sub-mark, a modern take on the traditional evil eye, the resulting overall design by Mildred & Duck is a memorable and characterful visual identity that compliments the space and sprit of Souk.

BABA G

MIRADOR | Baba G

Named after the Middle Eastern aubergine dish babaganoush, Baba G is a small rotisserie deli based in Johannesburg, South Africa, focusing on street food with a fusion of Afro-Mediterranean flavours.

Tutto Food Co. approached Johannesburg based freelance graphic designer and illustrator Shaun Hill to create the brand identity for their new restaurant, Baba G. The idea was to create something contemporary and quirky yet still pay homage to the Afro-Mediterranean roots the restaurant is based upon.

Eco-Friendly Men’s Grooming Line

All-natural, organic, eco-friendly and sustainable are terms that are frequently thrown around on products you’d find in the personal care section of any store. And yet, a majority of those products are still packaged in plastic and oftentimes include the kind of super-secret ingredients grown in an evil scientist’s laboratory.

And that’s why Wise’s line of men’s grooming products stand head and shoulders above the rest.

The Wolpe Collection

Spanning striking display type, roman text faces, blackletter, and little-known designs that introduce a quirky retro sci-fi flavor, The Wolpe Collection, now revived by type designer Toshi Omagari, reinvigorates the work of a man who was quietly instrumental in the world of British visual culture.
