Antique shop 若水藏真 – visual identity design

A project for a friend of ours, who sells Tibetan antiques in a small and very cozy shop near Wushan Hill in Hangzhou. The goal was to create a logo, business card and shop sign.

The client liked our business card concepts so much, that he decided to make two sets.

Here is the initial drawing of letterpressed part, made by Katya.

The structure of our logo.

Business cards render. Letter-press goodness in all it’s glory.

Design Marathon (Day 24) – kombucha packaging

A packaging design I made for my homemade kombucha.



development Process

I’ve got some really neat Chinese fonts recently and decided to play around with them. First I looked into Japanese Sake packaging for inspiration.

Than the SCOBY was born.

Tried a circle label but it looked too much as alcohol packaging and I’m packing a super healthy drink here after all.

Design Marathon (Day 23) – the Dude

Design Marathon (Day 22) – Star Trek poster

It’s been a busy week around here, with all the graduation activities and paper procedures. (Graduation photo post is coming pretty soon, need to process the film first). Here is a small poster I made on my free time in the past couple of days.

I’m happy to announce my self-initiated “Star Trek Into Darkness” poster. Loved the movie, what a great vibe! When I saw the last scene, I thought: “That is totally gonna end up as a poster.” So here it is!
This time I challenged myself to use as less elements as possible and keep everything very simple. I limited the color palette to 3 colors as well.

Played around and made a vintage, more minimalistic variant of the same poster:

Super rough first idea sketches, as you can see I ended up forming a Starfleet emblem out of Enterprise engine trails:
