Classic branding by 303 Design Squad.
Autumn of 1940. In The Battle of Britain, during The Second World War, there was a group of well experienced and talented polish pilots who voluntarily served the Royal Air Force (RAF) and formed what turned out to be their best and most effective squad, The 303 Polish Fighter Squadron. Facing this historical context, and, a few coincidences, like the number of our studio being 303, we have decided to metaphorically incorporate the name and form The 303 Design Squadron.
Photography packaging by Lundgren Lindqvist.
From the designer: The Photographic Archive (TPA) is a collaboration between Lars Dyrendom and the Hasselblad Foundation Library. Dyrendom is a Danish born artist currently residing in Sweden. Dyrendom’s main interest lies in investigating questions about identity – how we construct images and ideas about ourselves, individually as well as collectively.
The Hasselblad Foundation was established in 1979 in accordance with the last will and testament of Erna & Victor Hasselblad. The main aim of the Foundation is to promote research and academic teaching in the natural sciences and photography.
Every month, Dyrendom, or an invited guest curator, selects and presents 4-5 photo books from the Hasselblad Foundation Library. Each month has a specific theme, to which the selected books adhere.
Dyrendom approached us to design the identity and website for TPA. The vertical orientation of the logotype emulates the shape of the back of a book on a shelf. The single dash preceding ‘Archive’ connects to the parallel ‘O’, creating a distinct marque referencing the focused eye of the photographer.
To advertise TPA, we designed bookmark and a wooden book stop in the shape of a book. These were distributed to galleries, libraries and art book shops around the world.
Business card design by Mark Bain.
From the designer: These business cards are a tactile reflection of my qualitative and quantitative process. The cards themselves, combining a raw, unrefined chipboard stock with a glossy and solid black foil stamp, exude this clash of texture and appearance. The “Go Farther Go Further” mark further emphasizes this relationship in a typographic way, and also adds weight to the black foil, balancing these textures visually.
Process: 1/0 foilstamp, gloss pigment black (etched magnesium die)
Stock: 35 pt Chipboard (generic, no brand)
