There’s something very exciting about getting a brief to design (or redesign) the identity of a museum. Often, it allows for more avant-garde and interesting design choices, where designers can be a little more expressive and risk-taking, compared to their ‘every day’ clients.
This identity by Svyat Vishnyakov is just that type of work. He was tasked to redesign the identity for the AZ Museum in Moscow. The AZ Museum is a private museum that houses the works of Anatoly Zverev, a prominent figure of the Russian expressionism movement from the 1960s. You can see how he used the artist’s initials, AZ, as a starting point, then expanded his thinking further and further throughout the project. From business cards to clothing that people can buy in the museum shop – this identity covers it all!
On 13 April we hosted Book Dash 2019. Book Dash is an annual event where creative people combine their powers to create children’s books in a 12 hour sprint. All of the time people give to the project is volunteered, meaning that all of value goes towards the kids. To date, Book Dash has published 117 books and distributed over 400 000 copies to children across the country.
This year the challenge was to create books for babies aged 0 – 2 years old. No mean feat! Seeing the incredible creativity and drive of everyone involved made for such an incredible day, and an incredible outcome. What a special thing to be a part of!

This simple and hard-hitting campaign by TBWA Paris for Entourage, a French NGO, shows just how dangerous homelessness can be. With a smart use of photography and camera angles, it shows homeless people on the verge of falling into a cityscape, along with the copy line: Give a helping hand with our app.
Pornhub as a brand has never been shy to advertise and get itself out there. This new campaign they’ve created to save the bees is no different! To help save the bees, they created an entire section of their website dedicated to films of bees. For every film that gets watched, Pornhub will donate to charities that will help save the bees.
This video they created does such a good of explaining their thinking and how the project will work. Have a watch below. And don’t worry – it’s all Safe For Work!
Packaging for a new product is always an interesting problem to solve. And when that new product is an entirely new type of product, it becomes especially interesting. That’s exactly the thing that Pond Design had to deal with when they were tasked to create the new packaging for Nutrinovate.
Nutrinovate is a new type of delivery system for vitamins and supplements, using a thin film. These films, created from algae, can be placed inside your cheek or under your tongue and allow your body to absorb the vitamins through your mucus membranes, instead of your digestive system.
We love how they’ve taken some of the cues from traditional vitamin and supplement design and created something new, modern and most importantly: Believable. Buying into something new like this is never easy, and having packaging that adds to credibility is vitally important.
