Time Unwrapped

Time Unwrapped is the tenth edition of Kings Place’s award-winning Unwrapped series.The design task for this series was challenging: time being such an abstract theme. We worked on how to portray the relationship between music and time: how music can stretch time, condense it, reverse it, organise it, atomise it, tangle with it and suspend it. The Time Unwrapped logo conveys the idea of the circularity of time in music, but also the fact that time is something that evolves within a direction and can only move forward, therefore vortex shaped. We also created the logo and text animation for the slow motion teaser and video. This year for the brochure we designed 8 illustrations to depict in a metaphorical way the articles’ contents: we choose the collage medium to create surreal allegorical images. “If architecture magnifies Space, music transfigures Time” Gérard Grisey

The Night Shift

The Night Shift is the OAE (Orchestra of The Age of Enlightenment)’s long-running classical concert series targeted at audiences under the age of 35 who do not regularly attend classical music in concert halls. The series is all about making classical music easy to enjoy for a young crowd in a more relaxed environment, such as a small pub, a summer festival or an unconventional venue like the Bussey Building in Peckham. In the Night Shift events drinks are allowed, the audience can take photos, people can move around and the players talk from the stage and introduce the music they are playing. We did a fresh new identity for the website visuals, poster imagery, social media and a new logo. Our new look and feel is modern and informal, the design elements are geometric and with vibrant colours that suggest the evening mood of the concert. “Classical music, minus the rules”

Cello Unwrapped

Kings Place is a renowned London concert hall that every year organises an “unwrapped” series that include concert and events from January to December.  We designed the identity, campaign  and a brochure for the 2017 “unwrapped” series, which was dedicated to the Cello. For the logo we transformed the word “Cello” in a typify image of the instrument. The brief for the identity was to create a modern and elegant look and feel, for this reason we introduced bold geometrical shapes in the layout and we design a bespoke typeface. The photos are always in black and white through all the communications materials, and the colour palette comprises of 4 colours, black, white, grey and a vibrant red that lifts and creates contrast with the pictures. We created many different digital and print materials to promote “Cello Unwrapped”, from digital signs to a tube poster campaign. Every year the brochure content is not only the listing of the concert but also a collection of articles about the instrument, the musicians and the nature of the events that will feature in the unwrapped series. Each spread has featured images by the photographer Nick White. We worked on the art direction of the photo as […]

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.

Concertus Clivi

Coro Sinfonico Concertus Clivi is a professional choir performing in Trento under the conduction of M° Davide Lorenzato. We have been called to design their communication material. We started with the creation of a new logo, playing on the “o” shape of the mouth while singing. We designed posters and flyers for their concerts: we took inspiration from the Baroque aesthetic, using a marble texture and a classic serif font.

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
