Identity for Studio Aves (Aves, from the latin meaning Bird). We designed a colour-based identity for this typographic design studio around the markings of British birds. These include a Great Spotted Woodpecker, Blue Tit, Goldfinch, Magpie, Dunnock, Wood Warbler, Wheatear, Kingfisher and a Robin.
To cut down costs on a relatively low print run items such as the business cards, compliment card and DL envelope were digitally printed on different colour Colorplan stock. This resulted in the look and feel of a hi-spec print at a lower production cost to the client. Digital print by Generation Press.
Build also designed a simple holding page for the studio (full site soon) — http://studioaves.com/
With pages and links sporadically added over time, the BHA site had become bloated and difficult to navigate. Starting the build from scratch, Firedog implemented a sense of hierarchy. The navigation bar is now clearly split into five main sections, allowing for a more compartmentalised and rigid structure. Horses, jockeys and trainers now form new sections within the website, which makes it easier to find relevant information.
As horseracing is an outdoors sport, Firedog ensured that information is easily accessible on the move. Firedog built a mobile first website which gives access to information in seconds, as there are no large images. Firedog worked with the BHA development team on creating custom algorithms for search and a brand new API. This ensures that the new site is incredibly intuitive and mobile, as well as featuring integral search.

Located in Ourense, Spain, this place is anything but typical, it is a refreshing alternative for local walkers used to the traditional bar or restaurant. The architect Ruben D. Gil and his wife Gretta R. Valdés decided to spice up the rainy Galician city with an unusual spot to enjoy international cuisine and drinks in an atmosphere of light wood ceilings, adobe walls, dim lighting and steel furniture. The agency worked on the design of its visual identity, stationery materials, packaging for branded products, to go packaging, coasters, menus and tote bags. A custom made bottle of water on each table will welcome its guests in October 2014. Designed by La Tortilleria.
The Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), funded largely by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, is an international organization working to end global malnutrition through a market-based, sustainable solution: home fortification packets that provide the essential nutrients to give birth and raise healthy children. Along with our partners at TaskForce, Apartment One developed GAIN’s first-ever national fundraising and awareness campaign, aimed at engaging American moms, grassroots activists, and policymakers.
Apartment One conceived and developed the name, brand identity, and touch points across print, digital, consumer merchandise, and packaging. In the branding and campaign,Apartment One celebrate the power of this small solution and the impact each human action can make to end global malnutrition. Apartment One developed a brand voice and visuals to be both empowering and accessible to our core audience. Included in the graphic language is a system of blank white boxes that allows individuals to make their own marks on the campaign–and on the future.
