The Brander

Even today there are rather few blogs and web based editorials that truly craft unique quality content. The Brander as far as I know is the first to do such a thing for brands, their development, and the people behind them. Pairing amazing photographs with comprehensive writing they truly rise to the occasion of covering people and brands that have risen to top of their field, or in some cases created a field.

As a beautiful country with amazing internationally exported goods, and an economy largely based on tourism this sound choice. They hired Future Brand who was behind the 2003 rebrand of Australia that has been widely applauded.

The Official Manufacturing Co. UPDATE

I posted about the The Official Manufacturing Company previously here. Their work is always impressively bold and holds very specific characteristics based on each client and their brand. They also maintain a client list equally as impressive as their work, including Ace Hotel, Rudy’s Barbershop, and Stumptown Coffee Roasters. Last time I posted about them I had just encountered the new packaging Stumptown had released, which they designed. Since that post they have done more great work for Stumptown along with a slew of other great stuff.

Fast Eddie’s Barber Shop

Boston based Richard Arthur Stewart designed this bad-ass identity for another hometown business called Fast Eddie’s Barber Shop. The brand really culls up lots of history and everything manly and majestic about the classic barbershop experience.

Still Liquor

This branding and identity work by Javas Lehn for Still Liquor on Capitol Hill in Seattle is a simple and thoughtful solution. I am not 100% positive of the significance of the car element, I would infer that it has something to do with prohibition, but cannot be certain. I do love it though.

USA Beer: Ordinary Company

The porfolio site of Matthew Genitempo, oddly named Ordinary Company, is a nice simple housing for some super clean and varied work. In addition to working for himself Genitempo is a member of the collaborative work space Public School in always beautiful Austin, Texas.

The self initiated project of branding a fictitious beer company is badass. Great colors and a cool array of icons and peripheral design elements. The type lockup is also a highlight of this project.

The Great Gatsby: Heads of State Style

At an AIGANY lecture Jason Kernevich and Dustin Summer gave in the spring I caught a glimpse of this self initiated project. They were still unsure where they were going to take it, but had gotten through the making of a personal brand a business card design for each of the amazing characters in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s masterpiece The Great Gatsby. These beautifully crafted calling cards have been masterfully laid out into 18 x 24 inch four color letterpress poster. This has definitely been added to my svpply and should also enter the record as one of the coolest self initiated design projects ever. The Heads of State gets a powerful double thumbs up for this one!

Douglas Richard Design

Designed by Douglas Richardson. This branding and collateral for a Pennsylvania based initiative, Farm to City, which connect farmers with people in cities. Their goal is to grow access to farm fresh foods in urban areas. I really love the colors and feeling of all the elements. Especially the main logo which you can see after the jump.

The Fox is Black

After a few minutes of “reallys” and some keyboard slamming I have settled into the new redesign and renaming of one of my favorite blogs. As a blogger and reader who is against the concept of RSS feeds and reader apps in general the actual native design of a blog makes a huge difference on the experience and whether or not I will bookmark a blog or site for a return visit.

That being said. Once I read Bobby’s posts about this big change I became a little more comfortable with the new site. I definitely understand the need to spice things up and even completely renew something and Bobby Solomon has done a great job of this with The Fox is Black.


Antarctic Voice Identity
