    Playground Studio

    A re-branding project for a music laboratory with a philosophy that music is part and parcel of life, even a storm breaks out in notes. Business cards and letterheads using ink stamps and recycled color papers easily obtainable at the local stationery stores. They can be printed on a need basis – a truly sustainable and green effort without exercising the printing press.

  2. Julia

    Julia is a design studio based in London and was founded in 2008 by Valerio Di Lucente, Erwan Lhuissier and Hugo Timm. The work that they usually take on board includes books, typefaces, exhibition design, posters, websites, identities and tablet applications.

    Copan was a commissioned typeface for Wallpaper magazine. It was to be shown in their Born in Brazil issue.

    Hugo is from Brazil and found that creating a typeface that represents your home country proved to be a challenge because he wanted to avoid clichés. Instead of representing any definition of Brazil, they opted to embody the mood of the country.

    Volt is an independent fashion magazine that is published twice a year in London. Julia were commissioned to create a typeface, called Volt, as well as design issues 5 and 6.

    The typography flows beautifully with the format of the magazine and we love how the height of the face changes depending on the content of the page. To us, it never feels boring.

    Premio is another commissioned typeface for Wallpaper magazine which came about after their collaboration with the Born in Brazil issue.

    Premio is based on traditional beveled typeface but has it’s on unique twist. To us it resembles that of an optical illusion. It was designed with a variety of combinations in mind a solid base, an outline and its inverted cut and a shadowed variation.
