One Day Stand Product Design by Mobiliar

“One Day Stand is an object that affirms the human nature which brings laziness in front of the order or aesthetic. Clothes we have worn once is left abandoned at the path between the wardrobe and laundry machine. It isn’t clean enough to find its place in the wardrobe nor dirty enough to stand in the queue for washing. So the clothes start to gather like parasites in the symbiotic relationships with the chairs, sofas or ironing boards, until they are destroyed by our cathartic decision to bring the order into our living space. This utilitarian sculpture is the homage to all the chairs which had lost their identity under the burden of the abandoned clothes.”

Mobiliar is the line of the handmade products designed by Željka Zrnić, and made along with the local artisans in the small scale production. Mobiliar presents design which is lighthearted yet bold and the eye-catching objects for everyday use. The products are inspired by people’s virtues and flaws, attributes of the materials and emotions that colors bring to life.

Branding & Packaging for Bodega Los Cedros by Anagrama

“Based on the geographical location of the mountains where the vineyard is located, our brand solution highlights characteristic components of the area such as: climate, altitude, flora and fauna. The logo employs 3 pine trees as the brand’s distinctive icon. The sans serif typographic selection adds modernity while the script gesture preserves a more organic touch, accomplishing this way, a brand’s contrast between simplicity and elegance. We included a neutral color selection highlighting diverse wine color tones and accentuating the contrast between bottle and label.”

They create the perfect balance between a design boutique and a business consultancy, from focusing on the development of creative pieces with the up most attention to details, to providing perfect solutions based on the analysis of tangible data.

Brand Identity for Moneygun by Dan Blackman

“Working with restaurant group 16” On Center, our focus for this project was to create an identity and brand direction that paid homage to a bygone era of cheap cocktails and shady barflies, and set Moneygun apart as a beautiful but unpretentious lounge with damn good drinks. With this in mind, we chose a distinctive and evocative name, created a thoughtful visual system that felt fresh but nostalgic, and designed collateral that balanced a sense of of timelessness and the totally new.”

Dan Blackman is a creative director and designer living and working in New York City. Since 2006 Blackman has worked with companies such as Mother New York, Tumblr, VSA Partners, Sagmeister and Walsh, FWIS and most recently the creative director at Tictail.

Along with the logo, we re-designed Summerhill’s entire packaging system, including developing several of its in-house product lines. A monogram honours the store’s heritage while the line “Your Other Kitchen” reinforces its role in customer’s lives.”
