Corporate identity for Made In Europe. The visual element of the new identity builds an analogy to the 12 stars of the Flag of Europe. Given 12 as a symbol of completeness and perfection formed to a circle of unity, it stands for both the careful craftmanship in every detail and the responsible treatment of natural rescources and the individuals involved in the process.

Corporate identity for London based menswear label Hopper & Lace. Reading the name, Edward Hopper played one of the main roles in influence to the labels work and philosophy. Whereas nudity and clothing form an important part in his figure paintings, the emotional expression of his characters, his use of color, light and shadow and the emptiness and simplicity in every scenery have been incorporated into the first collection. (Work in progress)

Corporate identity for the 5th edition of the art fair ‘Roma Contemporary’ in Rome, Italy. To contrast the classical and historical reputation of Rome the graphics are playful and clean at the same time. The new language forms a modular system, which gives the art fair an independent and strong identity.

Invitation card announcing the birthday party of a friend. As time is a serious matter in this case we played with elements of a clock to symbolize that some things change by getting older. If it is that time is relevant or maybe irrelevant. So it is like breaking the time and forgetting its relevance for a moment and celebrating something that is more than that.

Editorial

Today’s special feature has taken a while to materialise — work has been reshot, a website has been coded, but alas everything has come together nicely and I’m happy to share with you (Dear SI reader) a selection of brand and new (and some older) pieces of work from newly formed studio Kasper-Florio which comprises of Larissa Kasper and Rosario Florio, 2 names you may recognize from this past feature).

Kasper-Florio‘s working method follows a quality-conscious and conceptual position aiming for project specific solutions with a strong approach to elaborated and solid typography. Aspiring towards mindfully executed design, they work on various commissions in the cultural field, art, fashion and music.

At this point, do I really need to say anything else? ;) Big thank you once again to Rosario and Larissa for making this feature possible.
