Lodoso (as in muddy) is a space where experiences are shared through the creation of pottery. It is a split between a workshop where pottery making is taught, and a store that sells final products such as vases.

Lodoso has a relaxed and casual mood where students go to escape their everyday and share with each other. It is characterized as a place where everyone creates by getting their hands dirty.

The graphic proposal was based on creating a fun, casual and happy brand. The idea of both the logo, as well as the pictogram are to simulate having been created with mud. A fresh and fun chromatic palette was proposed to allude to the essence of the project.

Ramadan is the most awaited event in this country, as the majority of the Indonesian are Muslims. Traditionally, in the spirit of Ramadan traveling back home is one of the must things to do as we will celebrate Hari Raya with our loved ones.

It is been 2 years since the pandemic. A lot of people were missing their chance to come back home to their loved ones during the Ramadan. Finally, we are here now, we can travel back and celebrate Hari Raya as it is supposed to be! We are designing a special Eid Mubarak hamper as a sweet compliment to commemorate this moment. 

Inspired by the festivities of Eid Mubarak, bold, fun, and bright color combinations are used to celebrate these joyous moments. We hope that these special hampers can be the sweetest treats that can be shared with your family and loved ones during these special holidays.

Brand Identity for Fine Grazing by Both

Fine Grazing are known for their high quality, design-led grazing tablescapes featuring ingredients from Melbourne’s leading food artisans.

Working closely with the Fine Grazing team, Both implemented a new approach to their brand positioning and narrative, exploring the boundaries of food and design. The resulting visual identity is both formal and unconventional, and seeks to extend the same level of attention to detail seen in their event tablescapes to the Fine Grazing at-home offering. As a part of the brand positioning, Both worked on the art direction of a series of images celebrating the ingredients that form the core of Fine Grazing’s ethos.

The Fine Grazing stationery and packaging components utilize unconventional layouts to abstractly reflect the way in which grazing tables are often approached from many sides, and therefore viewed from different perspectives. Tactile finishes including delicate embossing and textured papers were selected to bring a sense of understated luxury to the at-home Fine Grazing experience.

The founder of AOKKA Robin is a doer who loves coffee, feels passionately about outdoors and record. Advocating freedom and romance, willing to share his coffee world. About 10 years ago, he was back to Melbourne, Australia to recording coffee tour with photographer, to let coffee lovers know more about specialty coffee story.

By introducing the aim of the wild club, Aokka relies on the sensual world of coffee to express the pursuit of independence and freedom, the determination and expectation of being adventurous, and face up to the unknown with an outlandish attitude.

Coffee crops grow up in the wilderness around the world, after cultivating, harvesting, processing into green coffee beans.

We design and use them into exclusive AOKKA’s visual language, also for brand packaging system.
