Colorplan swatch book
The cover of the Colorplan swatch book represents the three signature aspects of the range: colour, weight and embossing. The circles are inlayed into the cover using the technique of ‘paper marquetry’. Inside documents the journey through the range, told in a way that allows the user to enjoy each individual colour.

The experience is designed to be more akin to a book, rather than a traditional gridded selector. Embossing textures are shown in both black and white allowing the user to clearly understand how the paper will hold a texture.

Made Thought × Colorplan — SI Special


Colorplan business card
The business cards employ the same idea as the swatch cover. Our technique of paper marquetry is used to inlay the three colours (the only thing printed is the black for the logo).


www.colorplanpapers.com

A digital platform has been developed to encourage the user to explore and play with the full palette and versatility of the range; delivering an experience beyond the physical limitations of the swatch book. Primarily designed as a tool to appreciate the papers qualities, colours can be moved freely, juxtaposed, compared, and colour combinations recommended.The Colorplan Swatch Library can also be downloaded onto your computer to allow the palette of 50 colours to be used instantly (and without need for mixing your own matches).

The site will continue to be developed and expanded with further functions added in the coming months (for example, downloadable embossing textures for visuals; global map showing availability, sample requests; etc).

Colorplan typeface
For the launch of the website, a bespoke typeface called ‘Colorplan’ has been developed. The font delivers an elegant, crafted and idiosyncratic character with a light and delicate impression. Characters of particular interest include the lowercase ‘g’, uppercase ‘M’, and the numerical character set.

About the Project

Colorplan is an iconic range of premium uncoated coloured papers and boards which is available in a broad palette of 50 colours, 8 weights and 25 embossed textures. First developed in 1972, this select and versatile range of papers is widely considered to be indispensable within the design industry.

The Colorplan brand reflects the same effortless simplicity, confidence and beauty of the product itself, concentrating on the expressive qualities inherent in the paper, rather than focusing on its technical attributes. This viewpoint directly engages and inspires the design audience who specify the product.

The Colorplan brandmark is based on the simple concept of representing a physical sheet of paper – a turned up corner, traditionally used to mark a page for reference. When applied, the brandmark reveals another layer.

Acknowledgements

I’d like to take a minute to thank Ben for putting together all the imagery, text and video for this feature. And of course, a hat tip goes to the Made Thought crew for consistently producing beautifully crafted, thoughtful design.

Mulberry
Autumn/Winter 11 invitation
Mulberry may have roots embedded in English heritage, but the brand is truly progressive. This invitation shook the preconceptions of accepted formats.

Packaged in a black covered box with a slip lid, this invitation is quite an elaborate piece of hand-finished paper engineering. The only way to describe it is as a ‘fortune-teller’ format, where the corners unfold to reveal the various details of the event. The finely-detailed artwork is produced in a combination of foil blocking in metallic gold and screen-printed white on black uncoated stock.

A Few Words from the Editor

Friday’s SI Special goes up a little earlier than usual—a day early which technically makes it a Thursday SI Special—but I’m sure none of you (dear SI readers) are complaining! In the spotlight today is one of Brooklyn, NYC’s finest: Triboro Design. I’ve made it no secret on SI that I hold what David and Stefanie do in high regard and interestingly enough I even had the pleasure of working with them last year. With that said, they’ve finally got round to updating their portfolio with what can only be described as a diverse collection of beautifully crafted work. It should be noted that Triboro don’t rely too heavily on text to explain their work preferring that the images do most of the talking instead :)

Big shout out once again to David for spending his nights sorting/resizing/selecting all the images for the feature ;)

Core 77 Design Awards Identity and Call for Entries
Core77 Design Awards is a newly launched competition for design. The brief called for an identity that felt established yet new. The logotype was created as a flexible system allowing various configurations of the name to function on different collateral. Once the full identity system was worked out, it was printed on the back of the very first call for entries, thereby revealing the entire process of the identity’s creation. Two versions of the call for entries were created, one was a luxurious cloth mounted piece and the other a more economical 1 color poster which was sent to everyone that registered for the competition.

United Bamboo S/S & F/W Invitations
United Bamboo is a New York City and Tokyo based fashion house founded in 1998. We were commissioned to create invitations for their seasonal fashion shows. Our solution is based on only one design, which we produced in a different way for every season. For Spring/Summer the invitation took the form of an embroidered iron-on patch. After the show, it could be ironed on to clothing or bags. The shiny embroidered type and blue color scheme was reminiscent of a bright day on the ocean, the inspiration for the S/S collection. For Fall/Winter the invite was produced as a flexible refrigerator magnet to reflect that season’s masculine and somber mood.

By punching notches into each spec sheet, they could be used individually as well as collated and bound by a rubber band. The solution allowed the catalog to expand or be customized according to each customer’s needs. The deluxe version is enclosed in a foil stamped cloth cover.

A Few Words from the Editor

Believe it or not, this feature has been in the works for while now (many months in fact!) So it’s nice to finally get this piece out into the world alongside the launch of Alex’s shiny new website. Big thank you once again to Alex for making this feature happen :)

About the Studio

Before opening Studio Lin, Alex Lin laid the foundation for his own design practice by collaborating with some of the field’s greatest minds. After receiving an MFA in graphic design from Yale University, Alex spent six years at the design firm 2×4 and three years as a partner at Default.

The studio’s approach is founded on a desire to explore new territory through challenging collaborations with creative visionaries in the fields of architecture, industrial design, art and fashion. Behind every Studio Lin design is a highly defined rationale but not a singular style. The common denominator is a fresh, modern sensibility that eschews the overtly trendy in favor of lasting impact.

Guy & Max

Typefaces used: Gotham & Fournier

Guy & Max is the product of two brothers’ quest to create a collection of faultless precious metal
and diamond jewellery. The brothers have very different yet complimentary skill sets: Max trained
as a contemporary furniture designer and uses that knowledge to create unique, creative, yet
timeless jewellery; whilst Guy is steeped in the family’s rich heritage in the diamond trade.

The brothers approached us with a brief to bring the branding up to luxury brand status. Through
discussion we began to draw more analogies with high end fashion brands than with jewellery
firms.

We created an elegant set of marques and brand attributes that can be engaged for different
applications; including a roundel based on Tolkowsky’s ‘Round Brilliant’ and a refracted word
marque. We collaborated with Jason Tozer to create some super-macro diamond photography for
an online lookbook and series of printed mailers. Other applications include website, packaging,
store front and stationery.

We wanted to reinforce the unique nature of their brand; in particular the way they design their
pieces. Max trained as a furniture designer and thinks about creating jewellery in a very non-
traditional way. We researched all sorts of existing jewellery brands and felt like the Guy&Max
identity should lean more towards fashion than the more traditional jewellery set. This opened the
door to other creative innovations like the collaboration with Jason Tozer. He created sumptuous
images that don’t show the jewellery at all, but instead reflect Guy&Max’s collective passion for
both creativity and diamonds.

Getty Images How

Typefaces used: Lubalin Graph + custom stencil version

The 2009 HOW Design Conference took place in Austin, Texas. HOW caters to all kinds of design
and media professionals – and as a recently appointed roster design agency of Getty Images, we
were asked to work on their presence at the event.

The stand aimed to capture the attention of the designer audience and drive new registrants to the
Getty Images website, whilst highlighting the Getty role as a creative partner – not just a supplier.

The concept for our visual campaign was informed by the five W’s; who? what? where? when?
why? (and the inevitable how? – an apt reference to the conference name). The five ‘W’s is a
concept used in journalism and research and is regarded as a key tool in information-gathering.
We used this to draw analogies with the Getty Images search engine and as a useful prompt for
sourcing media.

Proud Creative in their own words…

We are a creatively led multidisciplinary design studio based in London. Founded in 2005 by Dan Witchell, Creative Director and joined by Roger Whittlesea, Partner & Head of Production. Our goal is to create work that makes our clients and everyone at the studio proud. It’s the reason for our name.

We understand that there’s always a story to tell and it’s rarely at the surface of the brief. To arrive at the true challenge we get below the surface; we interrogate, research and ask questions (lots of questions). More importantly, we listen.

We are a warm and optimistic bunch who will always go the extra mile (or late night) if that’s what it takes to make a job even the tiniest bit better.

Whilst I always insist that studios’s take the time to send in project information otherwise this site becomes nothing more than eye-candy (although one could argue that it is already, to a certain extent) exceptions to this unwritten rule are inevitable as is the case with today’s exclusive feature which is… Well… For lack of a better word, Golden.

Mr Frank Carolan of Leeds based design agency Golden has been kind enough to share the studio’s latest achievements with the readers of SI. This feature has been a year in the making literally — a year of email “ping-pong” with Frank regarding the status of the new work — nevertheless, it’s nice to know that the wait was well worth it. And why wouldn’t it be? :) Big thank you once again to Frank and the rest of the fine folk at Golden for making this feature happen.

Q: I really appreciate the quality of their work, but why is their website the way it is?

“The website – it’s just not a tactile channel for us, so therefore we wanted to do something that we enjoyed, that we liked,” says Carolan. “It was great fun to do, it looked great, and it’s got a great track over the top. It is just 90 seconds of us. If you like it get in touch, if not, drink up.”

In other words their work is more than just pixels on a screen – it’s an experience that requires more than one sense alone.

James Braund Photography

Hofstede Design has collaborated with James Braund for a number of years on a range of corporate and non-profit work. The opportunity to redesign his identity arose out of his desire for a more contemporary look aimed at designers and art directors. A neutral colour palette and clean typography are the cornerstones of a subtle, elegant identity where James’ work is the main focus.

The Type Tablet

Inspired by the ubiquitous plastic drawing templates which were once commonplace in design studios, the Type Tablet was developed as an exclusive gift for current and prospective clients.

Response

Initiated by the Australian Graphic Design Association, Response is a bi-annual journal exploring contemporary Antipodean graphic design. The launch issue is centred on the theme of ‘What’s Next?’ and features content from creatives including Garry Emery, John Warwicker, Fabio Ongarato Design, Spike Hibberd and New Zealand’s Alt Group.

In an effort to feature more great work from the lovely folks of Australia, it’s always good to start things off strong, which is why today’s feature is dedicated to the work of Victoria’s Hofstede Design a studio whom I have appreciated for quite some time now (you can find their well-written bio below). Big thank you once again to Dominic for providing all the images in high-res. :)

Next week on SI, more Australian talent and something else exciting is in the works – it is September after all… ;)

Established in 1996, Hofstede Design specialises in identity, publication and environmental graphic design. Their experience traverses the shift from analogue to digital, from the drawing board to the keyboard, and they appreciate that real originality exists in the hand and the head, and not the hard disk.

Whether the outcome is a publication, a business card or a directional sign, Hofstede Design’s approach is always consistent; rational, tailored and intelligent. In simple terms, they look to find the most efficient, engaging and appropriate method of connecting a message with a defined audience.

John Lewis – Brand Positioning

(Larger Images to come shortly ;)

John Lewis wanted to create a new menswear range of authentic clothing with a heritage feel, timeless and classic. They approached Egelnick and Webb based on our reputation working with fashion brands; House of Holland, Matthew Williamson and Jaegar.

Our first step was to visit the John Lewis archive which holds a wealth of material which we were able to draw inspiration from: collections of hand-printed swing tickets, a Ticket writers guide from the 1950′s, the detailing and typesetting of past collections, brochures form various stores around the country. What struck us immediately was the genuine heritage and strength of the John Lewis brand, established in 1864, it sat along side brands like Burberry, Barbour and Hunter in its place in history.

We created a brand positioning based upon this credibility and provenance, which we then rolled out across a collection of garment labels and swing tickets and extended to the in-store concept and provided a starting point for the art direction.

Matches Editions – Branding

Matches launched a capsule collection of limited edition pieces commissioned from a range of global fashion brands. We were asked to create a sub brand that would encourage sales at a higher price point than their core range, primarily online. We developed the name and reinforced the exclusivity of the products by developing a site that linked directly to sales and so counted down in real time as items started to sell out.

Given the premium product value, we elevated their usual, functional product photography to create a more aspirational level of beauty to the pieces that highlighted key detailing. The brand look and feel was then rolled out to offline application in-store and at launch events.

Hub – Branding

‘Now celebrating the opening of their third store, North East London clothing boutique HUB approached us to refine their brand identity, in need of some TLC. We created a simple, iconic, ration book chic aesthetic. The brand identity developed for HUB was applied across all online and offline marketing materials and and post-sale merchandising; the bags and gift-wrap. Our primary focus for the store interior design was to ensure that the brand identity was delivered in-store.’

Aganovich Invitation & Lookbook

‘Fashion’s duo Aganovich opened Paris Fashion Week in March. For another consecutive season, Egelnick and Webb worked with the Parisian Label for their AW 2011 show.

The Rubik’s cube inspired invitations, designed by Egelnick and Webb echoed the shades of blue used to define the collection for AW 2011. The show demonstrated a clear progression from ‘Rhapsody in Blue’ SS 2011, lighter shades of blue against cerulean for added definition. The collection itself championed modernity, alluding to something out of this world.

Aganovich are recognized for bringing a cerebral and complex point of view to the runway. Egelnick and Webb successfully designed the Lookbook to celebrate this very point of view delivering Aganovich’s design philosophy; ‘anarchy through elegance.’

Luella – Brand Refresh

Luella appointed Egelnick and Webb to re-fresh the brand identity, which primarily focussed on the luxury product. We upgraded the format of the look books to reflect the more grownup collection and price architecture. Our art direction created a revised editorial focus and a shoot with increased commercial focus to maximise the sales potential of each collection.

House of Holland – Invitations & Lookbooks

House of Holland shot to fame when Gareth Pugh and Giles Deacon donned his t-shirts at the end of their SS 07 shows; now he not only has a diffusion collection in Debenhams but his London Fashion week reviews just keep getting better and better.

We have worked with Henry since 2008; first working on his show invites and look books. We have since designed and built his website, an app for Blackberry and work on his full social media strategy which involves both applications for Facebook and the iPhone; ensuring that all communication is succinct and relevant and irreverently Henry.

Hard to believe that it’s been nearly 3 whole years since Egelnick and Webb were featured on SI! In that time they’ve amassed a large collection of brand new work, much of which I’ve been given the pleasure of showcasing in today’s feature. There’s some really great pieces of work on display here and if I were to pick a favourite, it would probably be the banana-leaf invites :) – I don’t know about you, but there’s something about the contrast of the gold typography with the whimsical nature of the banana-leaf that I find so appealing :)

Nevertheless I hope you enjoyed this feature and thank you once again to Luke and Alex @ E+W for the imagery. A few more images will be added later on in the day, so keep your eyes peeled (no pun intended) ;)

Egelnick and Webb are a multi disciplinary design agency based in London, who work with a broad range of clients, mainly in the fashion and luxury sector. The launch of their new website is just around the corner!

Falcon Enamelware

Falcon Enamelware has been an icon of British home life since the 1920s. The classic kitchenware brand has been revitalised with a new brand identity and updated ranges by Morse Studio & Kiwi & Pom.

We were commissioned to create a new brand identity including logotype, packaging, art direction and e-commerce website design. Our identity rigourously references Falcon’s distinctive blue rim, from the creation of a bespoke, inline typeface to the overhead food photography. The packaging takes the same uncomplicated approach. Simple half-tone illustrations are screen-printed on sturdy corrugated cardboard referencing the utility and charm of hardware shop packaging. An updated ‘falcon in flight’ crest acts as a seal of authenticity on every product.

Census & Society, British Library

To mark the 21st Census in Britain, The British Library curated and hosted, ‘Census & Society: Why Everyone Counts’.

Morse Studio, in collaboration with Lyn Atelier, were commissioned to design the exhibition space and graphics. Our response in designing the space and graphic treatment was inspired by the unprecedented scale and detail of data generation associated with the Census. Viewers are invited to explore six themed sections—each marked by a large-scale typographic totem and assigned a distinct colour—spread across a landscape of vertically stacked cubes featuring photographs, maps, public information broadcasts and cartoons, alongside insights from the census data itself. Entrances to the space feature census-related statistics with pictograms on back-lit panels.

Resemblance, Mikael Eliasson

Mikael Eliasson is a London-based portrait photographer.

Morse Studio was approached to produce a catalogue to accompany Eliasson’s solo exhibition entitled, ‘Resemblance’. The family portraits are printed on a rigid, uncoated card stock and arranged objectively across spreads. The catalogue is perfect bound with buckram book tape covering the spine allowing the spreads to lye flat when open.

The title of this feature is pretty self explanatory ;) But for those of you that don’t know Morse Studio is a London-based design consultancy specialising in 
brand identity, art direction, and graphic design for print, web and environments.

They are the studio that made McDonald’s look ‘visually appealing’ ;). If you’re wondering what I’m going on about, SI did a massive feature on Morse back in October 2010 featuring their entire back catalogue of work including the aforementioned McDonald’s stuff. You can check it out here.

Nevertheless, Morse Studio have “returned” after 10 months of hard work with a new website featuring the same, slick transition effects of the old flash-based site except this time it’s all done in html,css and jquery. And of course, they have a lovely selection of new work, all of which is chronicled here on SI in high-res, for your viewing pleasure :)

I hope you enjoy this feature and I wish you all a great weekend.
