Brand Identity for Crane by COLLINS

Over the last year, COLLINS has worked closely with Crane’s teams to revitalize their brand, reboot their digital presence, developing a more relevant brand voice as well as enabling new products, artist collaborations, and customization capabilities. Crane is exploring new ways of expressing the depth and design of their timeless, premium-quality 100% cotton products.

COLLINS have committed to the classic Crane blue with a slight update – dialing up its vibrancy while showcasing Crane’s printing and engraving capabilities. The stationery box itself becomes an object of hope, never to be put in a drawer or a closet but proudly displayed on a desk, a shelf, or a coffee table. When displayed in a store and at retail locations, the larger presence of the Crane brand functions as a clear signal of where their quality products can be found.

Agridoce by Lucas Wakamatsu

Agridoce means bittersweet, Agridoce is a personal project & visual exploration about feelings and mixed sensations. It’s about feeling the cold winter and the hot summer under the same skin; it can be compared to the first goodbye. We can say this is a way to express something a little bit confusing, a way to get the ideas and feelings in order.

Lucas Wakamatsu is a Brazilian illustrator & graphic designer based in São Paulo. Currently working as a full-time freelancer.

His style is a modern mix of simple shapes and eye-catching colors, creating pleasant characters and compositions. Through these elements he communicates feelings and concepts.

Brand Identity for Olipop by Break Maiden

OLIPOP is a sparkling tonic beverage made for digestive health with fiber, probiotics, and botanical extracts. The identity and packaging not only needed to appear refreshing but it also needed to pack an informative punch to reflect the products benefits.

The solution? Familiar and unique. The visual identity pairs contrasting typography and minimalistic illustration to create a sense of nostalgia to old style colas. Working with the team at Olipop, BM created everything from the brand identity and visual style to packaging and collateral.

Break Maiden is an award-winning studio based out of St. Petersburg, Florida specializing in brand identity and packaging design. After years of working for advertising and design agencies, putting national brands and their bosses in the winner’s circle, BM decided it was time to run their own race.

On behalf of TDB, I stand in solidarity with the fight against injustice, systemic racism, police brutality, white supremacy and the oppression of the Black community. Black Lives Matter.

As a white immigrant who came to the US three years ago from a country that’s predominantly white, I acknowledge my privilege. I have A LOT of work to do. A lot of learning and unlearning. Posting a hashtag and reposting the photos is not enough. Being non-racist is not enough. We must be anti-racist every single day. We must educate ourselves. We must listen, speak out, donate and we must get involved. It’s not supposed to be comfortable and it’s the only way we can make a change.

And to all the people outside of the US saying this is just an “American” problem. It is not. Racism is everywhere and we all need to get to work. We all need to be better, we all need to listen and we all need to learn.

I will continue donating to the organizations that are fighting against injustice and racism and I encourage you to join me. Here are some organizations I’m supporting and will continue to support: @blklivesmatter, @antipoliceterrorproject, @blackvisionscollective, @eji_org, @nationalbailout, @colorofchange, @reclaimtheblock, @naacp_ldf.

I will also commit to using my TDB platform to uplift and share more Black voices, creatives, designers, and brands.

If you can join the protests – do it. If you’re not able to do so, search for ways to get involved, sign petitions, make a call, write, learn, promote the Black creators and activists, donate & share the resources. Take actions.

You can visit this link: blacklivesmatters.carrd.co (made by @dehyedration) to find a lot of great resources on where to start, but please keep researching on your own too. Support the Black businesses, artists, designers, writers, creators.

Lastly, to my fellow queer followers, Happy Pride Month. Let’s not forget that it was the Black trans women and the riots against the police brutality that got us to where we are today.
