Mi (More Independent) is a Government-funded initiative that is being piloted across four UK regions. Using technology, the programme is designed to encourage people to take charge of their health, lifestyle and wellbeing, enabling them to feel safer and live more independently.

Uniform was briefed to develop a new brand for the initiative, including stakeholder engagement, research and insight, naming, brand strategy and activation. As the initiative was funded through the Technology Strategy Board, Uniform had to protect any intellectual property created in the project, including the brand mark.

With many partners involved in the process, all offering varying products and services, simplicity was imperative. It was also essential from the outset to create a flexible approach – including brand assets that can be used to depict various scenarios and create strong messaging, without becoming stale.

Guided by Tyra’s belief that makeup is the great beauty equalizer, Red Antler collaborated to launch a revolutionary cosmetics experience that gives people the power to transform what they’ve got, into what they want.

Tyra and her team challenged Red Antler  to come up with the “Tyra’s gonna think I’m crazy but…” idea. This mantra guided our creative process as Red Antler strove to shock Tyra and shake up the beauty industry. The chosen direction was inspired by Tyra’s signature Smize—smiling with your eyes.

Merchants of Beverage is an online service that makes it easy to buy and gift hand-picked, hard-to-find wine and spirits. The company needed their brand identity to exude style and taste, and establish itself as a destination for sophisticated gifting and for anyone looking to build the ultimate home bar.

Manual created a comprehensive brand identity system and designed a responsive e-commerce website, which included art directing the photography to present beautiful drinks in inspiring settings.

To bring the thoughtfulness and luxury of the Merchants of Beverage online experience to life, Manual designed and produced a complete set of packaging materials, including commissioned illustrated recipe cards enclosed with cocktail kit orders.

The packaging is designed so that the product requires minimal assembly before use but is protected during transportation. The material choice plays with the juxtaposition of glossy white paper and brown cardboard to emphasise the high tech and natural aspects of the product. The removable user manual is built into the product, giving clear step-by-step instructions on how to start using the smartpot. Designed by AKU.

The previous logo looked really mean and not very inviting to keep your money there and for retail locations it didn’t have any curb appeal. The new color scheme alone — as New York Knicks and Mets as it gets — brings a healthy dash of cheerful color to the bank. The icon, serving as both an “AB” monogram or simply an attractive abstract shape gives the bank a more identifiable device that is intriguing and attractive in its weaved simplicity. The wordmark, set in Lineto’s Circular, is okay and the way the “lg” and “k” interlock is beautiful; I’m not convinced an all-lowercase rendition of the name is the most appropriate for a bank and this bank in particular. Nonetheless, an undeniable improvement. Designed by Pentagram.
