Off the back of last weeks post, the event […]

A COLLABORATIVE CHRISTMAS

December 15, 2016

  It’s the festive season and once again we are fortunate enough to find ourselves collaboratively celebrating with our “sister company”, MediaBank. As you are probably aware, there are a few fundamental rules for Christmas work parties and we can safely say that we broke them all. As the dust starts to settle and apology […]

  There’s something very appealing about travelling off-grid – disconnecting from daily life and experiencing something new. Which is why we’re looking forward to participating in Off Grid 17 next February. Off Grid 17 isn’t another conference; it’s an “unconference” created just for designers by the Society for Experiential Graphic Design (SEGD). As an unconference, […]

Last week our Show and Tell topic was “God is in the details”. The idiom has been attributed to a number of different individuals, most notably to German-born architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. It expresses the idea that while the overall form or content may be pleasing, true and intrinsic beauty is only achieved when […]

Eyes on Berlin

May 8, 2016

  As good public art depends on good public spaces, Berlin is continuously transforming its spaces to become more inviting and open with collaborative and creative placemaking. As an article in Public Art Review puts it, the definition of placemaking is ‘to infuse identity into a three-dimensional space’. Berlin’s creative placemaking is enhanced by the […]

I shot the sheriff but I didn’t shoot no deputy. Try getting that out of your head after a whole Show & Tell session dedicated to sheriffs… I mean serifs.

If a picture paints a thousand words, then a map illustrates far more. The London Underground map has progressed from a simple geographically accurate portrayal of lines in 1908 to a constantly reinterpreted piece of iconic modernist art. Even in its most basic form, the evolution of the Tube map is a fascinating glimpse through […]

U Decide

March 3, 2016

There has been a lot of controversy in the past couple of weeks over UBER’s recent re-design. Once viewed on smartphones as a bold, recognisable black-and-white ‘U’, it has now been replaced with an oddly shaped hexagon, resembling an “installing app” icon.   via GIPHY     The app opens with a patterned animation, welcoming users […]

Making it Happen

February 25, 2016

Today I’m celebrating 4 years here at BrandCulture. 4 is a great number, I was born on the 4th, Black Sabbath, Metallica, Led Zeppelin and The Doors all had 4 members and the World Cup is every 4 years. I started here as an enthusiastic, fresh faced, black t-shirt wearing, day dreaming intern. Four years on, not much has […]

  Consider a typical day through the eyes of a blind person. If in an instant you were to lose your sense of sight, something as simple as the daily commute or even making your morning coffee becomes an arduous task. When a person becomes or is born visually-impaired, they must learn the skills and […]

Appearing unannounced, the pop-up is a trend that captivates attendees by constructing a feeling of relevance, interactivity and urgency. Often a pop-up will appear in unconventional environments such as abandoned warehouses, city laneways and empty lots, all adding to the shroud of ‘cool’ that a pop-up exudes. This temporal trend takes advantage of modern society’s […]

One of the 5 Massimo Vignelli phrases to live by are – We like design to be visually powerful, intellectually elegant and above all timeless. Sounds easy right…? We have always worked on projects with large life spans, projects where the end is 2, 3 or even 5 years down the line. To ensure the final outcome […]

Google Transport icons

January 28, 2016

Recently “Google Maps” adopted the iconography from Transport for NSW (TfNSW) for the City of Sydney’s ferry, train and light rail services. Already in use in other global cities such as Paris (with the use of the official Metro icon) and London (London Underground and National Rail icons), Google’s design approach is consistent with the […]

A New Purpose
