STUDIO NEWWORK poster4tomorrow Wayfinding & signage | Cartlidge Levene The Barbican Arts Centre is one of the largest arts, conference and exhibition venues in Europe. Since its opening in 1982 it had suffered from a lack of wayfinding clarity. Cartlidge Levene and Studio Myerscough were commissioned to develop a new wayfinding and signage strategy as part of a major refurbishment of its public spaces to make the foyer navigable and welcoming. Working as part of an integrated team, with architects AHMM, we built on their rationalisation of entrances and realignment of routes to develop a wayfinding strategy that heightens intuitive understanding of the space. Sensitive alterations and additions to the architecture, combined with a bold wayfinding language has created a clear, calm and uncluttered foyer.

Europa Manual — Slice Slice works with world-renowned industrial designers to create innovative cutting tools for the home and office. Slice engaged us to create a more up-to-date brand mark and flexible system. The identity system needed to be easily applied to multiple packaging forms yet consistently deliver the brand message even in the absence of product and point of purchase materials. Manual approached the design of the logo and packaging in parallel. The angled slice was further employed as a distinctive graphic element across product brochures, screen printed promotional posters, and trade show exhibition design.

GTF - Graphic Thought Facility - London based design consultancy Daniel Carlsten howies® Swiss Federal Design Awards - Michael Kryenbühl / Ivan Weiss We are all fa­mil­iar with Aki Kau­rismäki's au­then­tic every­day he­roes: the tac­i­turn garbage col­lec­tors, the dream­ing su­per­mar­ket check­out girls, the reclu­sive night watch­men. These melan­choly, soli­tary fig­ures are found not only in Fin­land, but rep­re­sent the uni­ver­sal human being and the (some­times rough and ready) va­garies of life. In their 272-page book Ak­i­lan­dia, cre­ated as a grad­u­ate piece at Lucerne Uni­ver­sity, Michael Kryenbühl and Ivan Weiss com­bine their col­lected im­pres­sions of eleven weeks spent study­ing Kau­rismäki's cin­e­matic world. They have called that world Ak­i­lan­dia and they guide the viewer through the films of the Finnish di­rec­tor. As in a film, the con­tent of Ak­i­lan­dia is con­veyed by the dra­matic struc­ture and se­quenc­ing of the im­ages. The book is made up for the most part of a wide va­ri­ety of vi­sual ma­te­r­ial.
