Brand Identity for Grindal Legal by Mildred & Duck

Grindal Legal approached us seeking an identity that would reflect their position within the legal landscape as a youthful and progressive firm. We created an identity in response to the key features that set Grindal Legal apart; an identity that blends personality with a respect for consistency and clarity.

The resulting visual language seeks to convey a feeling of transparency and straightforwardness; creating a confident and refined aesthetic that represents the firm’s ideology/mentality.

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.

When migrants venture through the desert in hopes to arrive to America, they do out of desperation and the necessity for health and refuge. These journeys are painstaking and taken due to a complete lack of resources and the sanctity of human preservation. The American administration has chosen to treat these refugees as criminals, separating their families, and locking them in detention centres.

The government justifies these policies with racist, untrue rhetoric. It is estimated that there are over 2000 children in detention centres without their parents. Many are sleeping on concrete floors and have extremely limited access to healthcare, nutritious food, and proper hygiene. Please donate to The American Civil Liberties Union – a team of individuals focused on defending the rights of immigrant families.

Branding for The Mediation Collective by Re

Four mediators came to us to help them launch their new business. In a sea of sameness, we saw an opportunity to stand out. An opportunity to create a brand that could reassure people without using stock imagery of smiling children and couples holding hands. And most importantly, an opportunity to tap into the ethos that connected the four women who were leading a new, collaborative approach to mediation. 

‘The philosopher’s desk’ became our brand idea, informing everything from illustration to colour, to the way we speak. The concept allowed us to hero the knowledge and professionalism of the mediators while providing calm reassurance to their clients in times of crisis.

Re is a strategic brand consultancy that shapes brands to evolve at the speed of culture. ‘Re’ comes from the Latin meaning again and again. They use a process of ongoing iteration to enable their clients’ brands to adapt as new business and cultural opportunities present themselves. They believe brands are always in beta.

Kernit Typeface by Collins

Kernit is inspired by the work and characters created by the late Jim Henson. Kernit was developed as part of COLLINS initial design exploration for The Jim Henson Exhibition at The Museum of the Moving Image in New York City. This typeface is meant to capture the same imagination, fun and whimsy, which we came to love in Henson’s vivid work.

The typeface has two display weights: Kernit Bold and Kernit Outline. The pieces are designed to be used interchangeably, much like the “Anything Muppets” built by Henson and his team for use on the breakthrough children’s television series he helped create, Sesame Street.

Branding & Website for Mikasa by ONNO

Mikasa is a young company that needed a strong identity to position themselves as a team that’s serious about their business — offering reliable services with high attention to details, creative and fun ideas for the homeowners and great care for both homes and clients they work with.

The logo was inspired by three main structures that were directly connected to their business and name: shape of the house; apartment buildings and letter M. Combining those objects and their shared forms, the final mark became a simple shape with a hidden, but the smart twist on the brand’s name and the pun behind it.

ONNO is a graphic and interaction design studio founded by Ena Bacanovic. Ena works across a diverse range of platforms and disciplines, always crafting simple, thoughtful and user-driven experiences and solutions for both screen and print.
