London Smoke & Cure

London Smoke and Cure is an award winning smokehouse based in Crystal Palace (South London). It produces contemporary deli and street food. LSC creates quality handcrafted smoked and cured foods, using smokehouse traditions and artisan heritage. We designed the identity and the packaging system, exploring the handcrafted feeling but retaining a modern and elegant style. The logo comprises of three symbols, two come from alchemy iconography. The triangle is the symbol of fire and the circle of salt, and they are connected by a hook in the middle. They refer to the basic and authentic elements of smoking and curing techniques. A recurrent element in the identity and packaging is a part of an old etching, sourced from the online archive of Rijksmuseum. The illustration represents a rudimentary smokery and the portion we used as a texture is a detail of smoke.

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.

Postcard to Bill

Debut album of the duo formed by London based pianist Bruno Heinen and guitarist Kristian Borring. Inspired by the recordings of Evans and Hall, the album comprises of compositions by the great jazz pianist Bill Evans arranged for the occasion. The album cover uses a bespoke font, created from the classical typeface Bodoni. The graphic layout captures the reflective elegance alongside the modern approach of Heinen and Borring. The overall look and feel is clean and minimal, recreating the atmosphere of 1960s New York.

Twinkle Twinkle

This cover art is for the debut album of jazz pianist Bruno Heinen. The compositions comprise of nine variations on the theme “Twinkle twinkle little star” and our graphic work translates these variations visually: a single typographical idea becomes an abstract motif representing the changing theme. We took the playful tone of the project through to the visual identity of the graphics, developing shape and form as the music does. The project incorporates the cover, on body CD and inner sleeve.

Miscommunication is the first album of the jazz quartet Dugong. The cover picture, by Tommaso Riva, has been chosen by the musicians to represent a track title “Cane Bagnato” (wet dog in Italian). The image interacts with the title typography in a reflection game; much as the listeners see their image reflected in the disk.

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.

The title for Oltremare Quartet’s first album is a quote from Alice in Wonderland. The CD comprises of original compositions largely by the band leader Andrea Di Biase. In the image making process we have been inspired by the fractal, circular character of the compositions. We created the cover image presenting Lewis Carroll’s words rolled up in a paper spiral.
