Bodega Los Cedros Packaging

Beautiful packaging design for Bodega Los Cedros, designed by Anagrama.
Bodega Los Cedros, represents a Mexican vineyard located in the mountains of Arteaga, Coahuila dedicated to the wine harvest since 2012. It originated motivated by the passion and dream of a family to produce high quality wines within a magical place, more than 100 years old named "El Cedrito." 
Based on the geographical location of the mountains where the vineyard is located, our brand solution highlights characteristic components of the area such as: climate, altitude, flora and fauna. The logo employs 3 pine trees as the brand's distinctive icon. The wine label and die-line mimic cloud shapes. The sans serif typographic selection adds modernity while the script gesture preserves a more organic touch, accomplishing this way, a brand's contrast between simplicity and elegance. 
We included a neutral color selection highlighting diverse wine color tones and accentuating the contrast between bottle and label. The packaging composition recalls the landscapes around "El Cedrito" winery.

Mix Copenhagen Brand Identity

Really nice branding for Mix Copenhagen, designed by Glasyr.
Mix is a LGBT festival that is run by volunteers. Their goal is to show movies that bend gender, cross sexual boundaries, affect the gender debate and reflect a diverse world. Glasyr created an identity founded on the concept of diversity portrayed with the morph between letters and the use of holographic foil. The effect is a multi colored hue against a matt black. To honor the history Glasyr was inspired by pre-film flip books. The darkness required to project film led them to use a black background. Mix Copenhagen got an identity that got praised and attracted more visitors than ever.

Modular Quotes Typography

Love this typographic project by Flavia Zimbardi.
Modular Quotes is a ongoing lettering project that explores its construction by the guidance of a single grid. All ornaments and letters are based on a square module and its subdivisions. Inspired by mosaics and tiles, the design of the letters came from findings in my beloved neighborhood, Greenpoint and worked to function in a modular way. The complete alphabet is still under development, with only the 26 capitals finished. To see more quotes, grids and process shots check out the #modularquotes on instagram. 
Flavia is going to be doing a limited edition print run with this gorgeous project, look for it soon!

Distrito Boca Signage

Nice signage for Distrito Boca designed by Bala.
We created signage and wayfinding for 5 km of public space in Veracruz, Mexico. Until that moment known as “malecón” (pier) of Boca del Río, now takes part of the large scale urban renovation project which aims to promote social and economic activity in the area. The plan includes the renovation of public space, optimization of urban furniture, the inclusion of signage and wayfinding system, and the construction of Foro Boca. Recognized designers and architects like Ariel Rojo and Michel Rojkind are involved in the project’s development. 
Bala collaborated creating the signage and wayfinding system, the brand identity system and the naming, Distrito Boca, which has the purpose of promoting recognition of the project as an area of cultural and social activity, boosting tourism on both, local and global levels. 
The graphic brand alludes to the idea of the continuous flow of people within Distrito Boca, triangles in opposite directions express a metaphor of the conceptual core of the project: to give the users the feeling of freedom in the area. 
The economy of means in the messages, the functionality of the typographic, pictographic and chromatic signs, the adequate effects of the signs' readability and how the pieces and its resistance relate to the surrounding environment, generated a practical, clear and emblematic solution for the signage project. 
Since the recovery and revitalization of the area, Distrito Boca has had a huge public activity. Today we are proud to present this project and wish to continue finding ways to create new public spaces.
