Brand Identity for Bare Witness by Re|

“Opening a café in Sydney is no longer as simple as having great food and a cosy atmosphere. Re helped the Cho family articulate the essence of what they wanted to create: A café that respects the origins of every ingredient, tinkering just enough to showcase their natural beauty. As the name suggests, café-goers can come to Bare Witness to see food in its purest form. A little wordplay adds a cheeky dimension that reflects the café’s carefree vibe. A series of illustrations by Christopher DeLorenzo forms the centrepiece of the identity and interiors.”

Re| is a strategic brand consultancy that sees brands as living, breathing entities that constantly evolve in response to the world around them. At Re| they use a process of ongoing iteration to enable our clients’ brands to adapt as new business and cultural opportunities present themselves. We believe brands are always in beta.

Brand Identity for Sister by Mildred & Duck

“Sister, an architecture and interior design studio run by sisters Lauren and Amanda Martin, needed a strong identity to help position themselves as a new and confident studio in a competitive industry. We developed a visual identity that balances minimalism with warmth and tactility, relying on typography to support and soften a bold wordmark. Uncoated neutral paper stocks have been used to connect with Sister’s focus on and appreciation for the value of raw materials used in their natural state, with a multilevel emboss highlighting the form of the wordmark itself.”

Mildred & Duck is a Melbourne-based graphic design and communication studio established by Sigiriya Brown and Daniel Smith. They design for print, digital and environmental media, creating solutions that communicate and connect with people. They work across a variety of sectors with a range of clients, from startups to established organisations, continually delivering thoughtfully crafted outcomes regardless of scope or budget.
