Brand Identity for Albural by Firmalt

Albural is one of the largest pecan orchards being built in México. As part of their family legacy, Albural is meant to last through many generations, so we had to create a brand that would endure with it. The family is a central concept in the identity, which is why the brand mark serves as a symbol for both the family tree and the Pecan trees within the orchard. 

We created different patterns inspired by the different shapes of the pecan shells, which assemble in “stacks” to give the brand a playful and lighter feel. The result is a strong and timeless brand with a unique visual system, that communicates the story of a strong family and would serve as the start of a great legacy.

Firmalt is a multidisciplinary design studio based in Monterrey, Mexico that provides unique creative solutions that develop and position brands. They create strong visual concepts that communicate clear ideas, add value, and differentiate from the competition.

Daydream by Marylou Faure

These ‘Daydream’ figurines are made out of resin, airbrush painted with a high gloss finish. They are approximately 15cm tall and are made in the UK as a limited edition of 25. There is one full white version with an iridescent shine, and one in multiple colours, with hand-painted details. 

The name ‘Daydream’ comes from a new series that Marylou will be exhibiting in early 2020. The ‘Daydream’ figurines are a representation of peace and stillness, as well as dreams and aspirations. It’s been said that you should spend at least one hour a day doing nothing else than being with yourself. To help you focus on your goals and motivations. The figurines are a reminder that you should take that time to be with yourself, escape from everything else once in a while, and come back calmer and more motivated. 

The figurines are meant as decorative objects for the home, as well as a reminder to take a break and recenter your thoughts on things that matter to you most.

Identity for Zooba by &Walsh

Zooba is an Egyptian street food restaurant based in Cairo. Their food is a modern twist on traditional classics. With the opening of their first store in NYC, they came to us for a new brand identity. We went to Cairo and were inspired by the beauty of the layered visuals we saw on the streets: the hand-painted typography on foul carts, geometric patterned tapes, mix & matched colored tiles, posters, and painted illustrations on walls. 

We worked with a Cairo-based calligraphy artist to paint the Arabic type for the branding. We layered this with modern versions of patterns and illustrations inspired by the streets of Cairo. Just like their food is a modern twist on traditional classics, we aimed to do this with the visual language.

&Walsh is a creative agency in NYC specializing in branding & advertising. We work with clients starting from the initial brand strategy phase to the design, art direction and final production of a project. We believe in creating beautiful, emotion-driven work that functions for our client’s goals and resonates with their audiences.

The Cereal School by Matthew Wong

Branding, lettering and packaging design for The Cereal School, a new health-forward, retro-inspired cereal company based out of California. Together with the founders Helen and Dylan, I created a bright and fun identity that riffs on vintage packaging, nostalgic school days and healthy eating.

Matthew Wong is a designer, letterer, and illustrator based in Perth, Australia. He spends most of his days drawing letters, logos, and sparkles for both work and pleasure.

He studied design and illustration at Curtin University, and after graduating spent three delicious years working with those good buds at Monk Media. Then, in early 2018, he left his studio job to freelance full time.

&Walsh Brand Identity

Same kick-ass creative team. Same studio on Broadway. A new look & name for their new chapter with a new vision. What did it take to brand &Walsh? Like all good things in life, it didn’t come easy. It took many talented people, two months of work, drawing 1,230 ampersands, an existential crisis, a lot of coffee, and 42 migraines.

Branding uses an ampersand for both the visual identity and tonal expression. This typographic system includes clients, projects, collaborators, experiments & endeavors: hence the (Blank) & Walsh. They’ve drawn 50 final ampersands in their style and will draw a custom ampersand drawn for every new project or team member. The ampersand is one of the most beautiful typographic characters and will challenge themselves to continuously reinvent its form.

&Walsh is a creative agency in NYC specializing in branding & advertising. We work with clients starting from the initial brand strategy phase to the design, art direction and final production of a project. We believe in creating beautiful, emotion-driven work that functions for our client’s goals and resonates with their audiences.
