|16 September 2011 — Paul Smith|
We would love to work for Paul Smith as he is a fellow cyclist. It might never never happen but today we worked WITH Paul Smith, a sign writer with the same name. Its a shame to see this traditional trade craft being more and more replaced by vinyl letters. Paul did a great job writing the logo signature we designed for 'The Collection' which will open next week.
07 September 2011 — A Day at the Screen Printers
Craig spent the day at the screen printers printing invites for 'The Collection'. Our intention was to make each invite unique so the printers mixed different colours directly on the screen, something we have not tried before.
14 September 2011 – New Belmacz Website
Right in time for London Fashion Week our new Belmacz website went live today. Maybe not the most user-friendly design but totally in tune with our new overall identity concept.
August – Join a Winning Team!
Well, again we might actually have a job available soon. It does not happen very often and we will be very, very picky. Please read the detailed description here before applying.
(The position is no longer available)
29 August 2011 — Metastasis
Today we finished working on 'Metastasis' , a new font we designed in collaboration with Neal Fletcher. Sorry Herr Spiekermann, we mean no harm. Meta should be preserved in aspik.
08 August 2011 — London's Burning
Riots close to the studio. We are used to fair deal of crime and general dodgyness around the studio but now things have gone too far. They boarded off our local pub!!! We hope it will be open by Friday again.
08 August 2011 — Villandry
We are currently (well for quite a while now) working on the re-design of the Villandry chain. It will still take a while until everything is produced and the restaurants are re-fitted. The new identity will still be classic and suitable for a French Brasserie but the colour scheme is very bright and unusual. At the moment we are producing lots of dummies in original materials.
05 August 2011 — Printing Toilet Walls
The Belmacz shop is coming together bit by bit. Today our design for the toilet walls got printed, featuring Google Earth images of large mines. The glass panels will be fitted with gold leaf foil from the back.
05 August 2011 — The Mobile Museum
Our Thank F*** poster was shown at the V&A and in Belgium as part of the Mobile Museum.
23 July 2011 — Studio Cookbook Launch
Today saw the launch of Ken Kirtons Studio Cookbook (which we contributed to) at Bokship . We decided to make four dishes representing each nationality in the studio. Holger made German potato pancakes, Claire served French baguette with sausage and cheese, our intern Laura made Swiss Schoggibrötli and Craig, who is away on holiday at the moment, told us how to make Irish coffee before he went.
