Secret 7″ X Squarespace

What a fun, interactive design/typography hybrid for Secret 7″. If you aren’t aware, Secret 7″ is a musical project once a year where artists release hard to find music on vinyl. It’s always accompanied by incredible feats of design and creativity and this multimedia project powered by Squarespace is one of the best we’ve seen.

Users on the site can choose from seven different emotions, then use an online tool to create their own one-off piece of typographic art. What a great way to combine design, typography and multimedia all in one space!

SPAN Corporate Identity

Recently, the Stellenbosch Outdoor Sculpture Trust changed their name and thus were looking for a new corporate identity. They approached our Graphic Design department at the Academy for help with rebranding. With a new name: The Stellenbosch Public Art Network (SPAN), our Graphic Design 3rd year students were given the task of defining their new corporate ID.

In the end, Lauren Riley’s work was chosen. Her work can be applied well to all of the different outputs and platforms in which which SPAN operates. This rollout did not just include the logo though, students also had to design a new front end for the website as well as an app which could be used by SPAN to guide the public through their exhibitions. The final part of the task was to design a wayfinding system for SPAN’s public art exhibitions, making the design not only decorative but highly functional too.

Well done Lauren – we are so proud of your work!

BMW British Touring Car Championship – Print Campaign

FCB Inferno created this awesome campaign for the BMW British Touring Car Championship, which celebrates 60 years of the competition. To do so, they enlisted a number of illustrators and designers to bring to life the different eras in which the competition has taken place. Each execution shows the cars of the time and most importantly to us design fans – nods to the design trends of the time – from the 60s all the way through to the about ten years ago.

zr0 Magazine

We love seeing how digital and physical design can work together to create something special. This magazine, Zero, which was made in Central St Martins by Dagné Petraitytė, Inês Silva and Nathalie de Vallière, does just that. It uses both print and digital techniques to make a publication which is something totally new. In fact, you can download the first edition of the publication on the website for free.

Kyiv Tinctures – Packaging

Yaroslav Shkriblyak is a Ukrainian designer and typographer who did this work for Kyiv Tinctures, a vodka made and bottled in Ukraine. We love how he was able to create something so striking using a limited colour palette and some really gorgeous typography.
