Word visual identity and branding by Passport
Basement project by Sciencewerk
Basement is a premier karaoke & lounge where people meet, sing, and socialize. We created the tagline Sing, Socialize to tell the story about brand itself. The karaoke is located at one of the five star hotel in Palembang (underconstruction). So to differentiate with the local ktv market that typically flashy, colourful, excessively commercial, and fun , we created an identity that particulary classy to line it up with the hotel’s branding.
Ada Blackjack are handcrafted bags, made in Barcelona by Ivonne Schippers. The brand is inspired by Ada Blackjack, an Inuit woman who was the heroic and sole survivor of a two year expedition on the uninhabited Wrangel Island in northern Siberia.
The theme “Refined” was picked for the 2011 Oklahoma State University design show graphics. This show is an annual exhibition showcasing the portfolios of graduating graphic design seniors. The work displayed is a mixture of print design, motion design, identity design, and illustration.“Refined” illustrates what we do as students every day. We spend much of our time in school perfecting our pieces, our skill as designers, and our portfolios. Getting our work ready for exhibition helps us to prepare our work to be seen by potential employers. This process can sometimes be messy and take some extensive exploration to achieve, but as designers we work hard to produce a refined and polished final piece.
The exhibition graphics and collateral included two three dimensional posters built from paper, free-hanging 3d graphics to accompany the posters, a printed poster for distribution around campus, postcard design, biographies for each designer, work tags for each individual piece of work, website layout, and color-coded way-finding.

Sayaka Ganz’ Graceful Sculptures Made of Recycled Plastics
Description: Japanese-born artist Sayaka Ganz creates sculptures out of discarded plastics found in thrift stores, converting these unwanted materials into graceful imitations of natural beauty. For her Running series, Ganz created life-like horses in mid-gallop. “Japanese Shinto beliefs are such that all objects and organisms have spirits, and I was taught in kindergarten that objects that are discarded before their time weep at night inside the trash bin. This became a vivid image in my mind,” Ganz explained her interest in recycled materials. She collects multitudes of plastic objects, organizing them in dozens of color-sorted bins in her basement. She then decides what to make when she has enough of one color, referencing photographs of her chosen species to convey its distinct movements and characteristics. Take a look at some photos of her work below as well as a video of her process, images courtesy of Sayaka Ganz.
