The second edition of luxury gentlemen’s magazine road book has just been published in locations across Asia. Angus Hyland and his team have rebranded and redesigned Roadbook, relaunching the first edition of the magazine April (link to previous post). The bi-monthly magazine is aimed at high net worth individuals and features classic and contemporary cars, timepieces, fashion and more.
As part of the launch of Fontsmith’s new sans serif font, FS Emeric, design studios around the world invited make a poster. The brief was to use a single weight of the typeface to create a poster that would embody the three words that best represent its character – optimistic, adventurous and ambitious.
Pentagram partner Domenic Lippa took on the brief, creating a poster which shows the full-stop of the core weight of FS Emeric at 11,750 pt. Lippa says, “We didn’t want to over-design it so we took the most simplistic, smallest element of the typeface, the full stop, and enlarged it so it became a graphic shape in itself. The idea of the poster was also a statement: FS Emeric, fullstop.”
Tantrum, a new retail concept aimed at teenage girls, has launched its flagship store at Westfield Stratford in London. Pentagram partners William Russell and Domenic Lippa collaborated to develop the interior store design, brand identity and graphic language.
The logotype, designed by Lippa was based around Din rounded, with some characters re-drawn to give the identity personality. In addition, Lippa and his team decided that the identity could be moved, overlapped, made into outlines and played with to keep it fresh.
Issue number one of the men’s lifestyle magazine Road Book has just been published in Thailand and Singapore and is currently being rolled out across Asia. Road Book, a product of INDICIUM (also branded by Pentagram), is a luxury publication featuring contemporary and classic cars, timepieces, boats and yachts, aeroplanes, hotels, clothing, and accessories, fragrances and technology. Angus Hyland and his team have rebranded and designed the magazine, aimed at high net worth individuals.
Harry Pearce and his team have designed the logo for a new YouTube channel, Human Rights, a collaboration between WITNESS, a human rights organisation and Storyful, a content verifier. The Human Rights channel features user-generated content, curated by WITNESS showing some of the most effecting footage from around the world.
Pearce and his team also created the above ident to be used at the beginning of every video that is uploaded to the channel. Because all footage uploaded is user-generated, the purpose of the ident is to give all the disparate footage unity, context and an identity.
