Milk and dairy products can be contaminated by several contaminants, including aflatoxin M1, a potent carcinogen. The aflatoxin contamination represents a hazard for human health and an economic loss for the dairy industry. The solutions developed by Symphony project  aim to overcome the limitations of the available technology for aflatoxin detection, which fails to provide timely identification of the carcinogen and cost-effective management of contaminated milk. Together with Linda Toigo we realised this animation to explain the aim and the process of the project. SYMPHONY: Integrated SYsteM based on PHOtonic Microresonators and Microfluidic Components for rapid detectioN of toxins in milk and dairY products

We started working with Kings Place in March 2016: this is the first issue of the magazine designed by us. We reworked their previous layout with the purpose of making it more spacious and functional. With the team at Kings Place we decided to keep certain elements such as the typography, the colours of the musical genres and the wiggly lines which represent the facade of the building, the canal and the sound waves. But we changed others like the grid with a wider margin and the layout of the listing.

Europe Energy

We were contacted by Europe Energy Spa to design the launch campaign for the newly formed Europe Energy Gas and Power, the business they started in the the retail market for the sale of electricity and gas for consumers. We started from the idea of a new flux of energy coming to town. We used the shapes of the “e” of the logo to create a bright ribbon which flowed and interacted with the buildings and people around them. We curated not only the design of the posters, billboards and flyers, but also the copyright of the claim “una nuova energia in città” which translates to “a new energy in town”. We also curated the art direction of the video campaign. The campaign was held in Padova in the spring, and in Verona in the autumn of 2016.

LCN identity

London Creative Network (LCN) is a new London-wide development programme for creative practitioners with a focus on innovative technologies or processes, delivered by SPACE, Cockpit Arts, Four Corners and Photofusion. We have been selected to design the identity alongside the template for their newsletter and digital presentations. We transformed the acronym in a logo where the letters are incomplete and have differing patterns to suggest the fact that the programme is made by complementary parts (such as the participants, the teachers, the mentors and others) that complete and fulfill each other. The logo comprises of letter shapes and patterns that have been used as brand elements for the newsletter and the powerpoint template.

Lucio Vanotti, guest designer for Giorgio Armani at Men’s AW 2016 Milan Fashion Week commissioned us to redesign his website. Our layout was adapted according to device and screen size. The website is fully content management system driven. We adapted Lucio Vanotti’s minimal style to the site design, leaving space and reducing the branding and navigation to bare essentials.

Laurie Nouchka

Artist Laurie Nouchka takes inspiration from London’s iconic buildings and urban landscape to create custom made drawings for the design of a unique range of contemporary sports-luxe wear. We designed the logo and the packaging system for her first collection, inspired by the fashion-forward, urban-beauty ethos that defines the collection. The modern logo reflects the geometric patterns of her artwork, and the packaging uses the vibrant colours, textures and clean lines of her collection. The product is packed in a colourful tube that can be reused for different purposes.

History of Animals is a book by Oxana Timofeeva published by the Jan van Eyck Academy. The cover plays on the twisting movement of a white rectangle, suggesting the books uneasy position within the traditional disciplinary bounds. The pictures included portray subjects addressed in the text, as well as works of art who have been inspirational to the author.  The caption of the images are arranged to be unobtrusive: vertical to the written material.

In 2015 we designed a new exhibition in the Trento Science Museum, MUSE, in collaboration with Gaston Pisoni. The exhibition had the same curatorial concept of “Innovare in Trentino”, featuring a group of innovative research projects by local companies and research centres. It was focused on the theme of Agriculture and Food, in connection with Expo, the Universal Exposition held in Milan at the same time on the same topic. The exhibition name was “Ricerca sul Campo, innovazione trentina in ambito agri-food”, which traslates “Research on the Field, innovation in Trento Area on agri-food”. As in 2013, we wanted to have a strong structural element to unify the diverse projects: the concept was to achieve a synthesis between a table, a field and the mountains of the region. We worked closely with each company to find the best way to display their projects: with some of them we found a multimedia solution (a touch screen video game for Bring the Food, a screen quiz, for Cavit and Fem project) for others a more analogical solution.

The haute couture designer Roberto Capucci opened a new line of ready to wear dresses at the beginning of 2015. Capucci designated Cinzia Minghetti as the leader of a young designers’ team which has interpreted his haute couture aesthetic with a contemporary taste. We re-designed the corporate image of the company. The logo is inspired by a famous Capucci haute couture dress. It takes the florid shapes and elegant feel of Capucci’s designs, presenting an iconic trademark of rich rose gold. We also designed the packaging, the invitation to the first collection show, the look-book, the stationery, the website and a luxurious foulard scarf, all coherent with Capucci’s high fashion and exclusive brand identity.

Death on the Run is a collection of articles about Italian Western Films and their political subtext, published on the occasion of a retrospective curated by John Cunningham and Luisa Lorenza Corna. For the cover we avoided iconic film stills associated to the genre, instead opting for a magnified picture of a dynamite explosion, which epitomises the spectacular and sudden violence of the films. Inside, we display images of scenes of coercion and sufferance, key themes in most of the essays included in the publication. Decorative elements and colours are kept to a minimum, to give prominence to the gestures and the actions portrayed in the film stills selected.

NAHE was conceived by four young designers with the purpose of bringing craftsmanship into fashion design. It was born as an experimental laboratory, “Teatime”, and the end result was the presentation of a new collection NAHE S/S 2012. It employs ancient techniques, shards of the past that are projected under new forms over contemporary products. Any item of clothing can be reproduced, but no item will be the same. Our concept is based on the company’s ideas: as every dress has its own story; the graphic layout conveys the general feel of ‘original piece’ and ‘limited edition’. We designed the logo, business cards, website, labels, flyers, catalogue and look-book. The look-book is a foldable poster that presents an overview of the collection. The catalogue has an unusual format with a mix of narrow and wide pages. This creates interaction with the reader unveiling – page by page – product details and the inspiration behind the collection.

Yumchaa opened their fifth shop inside the newly renovated UAL Central Saint Martin building behind Kings Cross St Pancras Stations. This was a challenging design project with restricted space. Our aim was to maintain the cosy feel of the other shops in the cold environment of a glass box. We designed a small, bespoke counter, which despite its size, maintained full functionality. Other elements include a bench to separate the service area from the tables, and vinyls on the window to give a sense of retro comfort.

In 2013 a new Science Museum, Muse, opened in Trento, Italy. The architectural project was curated by Renzo Piano and the brand identity by Pentagram. For its opening, the MUSE organised an exhibition about innovating projects of Trento’s area. We have been called to design it in collaboration with Gaston Pisoni. The projects on display were highly heterogeneous, so we set out to identify a strong design element to unify them. We created an “innovation spine”, a cardboard and canvas structure around which two rows of tables were aligned to display the products with their respective infographics.

These books are collections of articles presented at two conferences: Mednet.it.01 and Mednet.eu.02 on the theme of urban planning of Mediterranean cities. Both books are divided into 3 main sections: an introductory section by the organisers Manuel Gausa and Antonio Ricci, the main speaker’s article and a final section with students’ articles. To make browsing the book easy, we added a coloured rectangle to identify each section. The chapter dividers are made through the use of navigation maps, to underline the importance of the sea for the Mediterranean cities.

PBQ – bottles

We designed three new labels for the Piccolo Bacco dei Quaroni winemakers. The first one is for a Cruasé, a “Spumante” rosé produced with the traditional method (“méthode champenoise”). We took inspiration from its production process: after primary fermentation, the wine is bottled with yeast and a small amount of sugar; the bottles are initially stored horizontally and then towards the end of the fermentation are gradually turned to flush the yeast in the bottle neck to be removed. This rotation of the bottle became the subject of the PBQ label. On the other two labels the illustrations play with the images of glass stains on a table cloth to create abstract grapes.

IGF – ITALY

A new graphic system for the fourth edition of the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) Italy held in Trento. Launched in 2006, IGF is managed by the Secretariat of the United Nations and is a forum wherein all Internet stakeholders can exchange ideas about policies and issues related to the future of the Web. This forum aims to better outline Italy’s role within the International community. IGF has four main topics of discussion: Technology and Research, Society and Culture, Rights and Responsibilities, and Economy and Sharing. We designed a new graphic layout, underlining the importance of the four topics: these became icons, a visual explanation of their meaning. “Internet as a catalyst for change: access, development, freedom and innovation” IGF Kenia 2011

Yumchaa is an expanding brand, which consists of 5 Tea Houses, Market Stalls in 6 different London markets, and an online shop, offering more than 30 tea blends. Despite its growth, Yumchaa brand and shops maintain an independent look: a merge between industrial and English vintage. We have been working with them since 2010, taking on a wide range of projects. We recently designed new take away cups, aboard posters and the shop signage. Our inspiration draws on the ethos of the company: creativity, quirkiness, love of travelling and the unexpected.
