New work from design studio Mucho with an identity and graphic campaign for the 40th Anniversary of the Fundació Miró. The logo is based on the iconic building of the Fundació, and also serves as a basis for the typographic development of a set of numbers. These shapes were then used to create the brand language throughout the campaign. The numbers call out key moments from the last 40 years.
Guy from Studio Small has been in touch with news of a recent project for Crane, a cast iron cookware brand. Over the past year Studio Small have developed their brand and also collaborated with photographer Nick Ballon in creating a series of short films showing the process behind the making of the product.
'Crane is a small independent cookware company co-owned by product designer and ex-Royal College graduate Barnaby Tuke and his partner Charmain Ponnuthurai. The pans are designed in Wales and cast in Picardy, using the highest quality vitreous enamel and sand-casting. ‘A simple product made well’ was our basic remit for the project, and working with Nick Ballon, Michael Thomas and Have Music, we helped to create a series of images and short films that aimed to evoke the honesty of both the manufacturing process and product quality.'
