Brand Identity Au Sommet Place Ville-Marie
We are taking a look at this brand identity project by Sid Lee for Au Sommet Place Ville-Marie located in Montreal, QC, Canada. I really do enjoy featuring projects coming from my own hometown. For this case, there is a mixture of visual identity and graphic design of this iconic monument of Montreal that was built in 1958 by I.M. Pei & Partners. Place Ville-Marie recently launched and promoted its new 360˚rooftop experience and this is what we are now exploring.
Last Week’s Perfect Office
Wonder Woman Collection
Wonder Woman’s movie is totally awesome and there are plenty of scenes where she proves herself a true warrior. It’s been 75 years since her creation, and it was about time to have a film representing this great character in the right way.

Graphic Design: Wild Creatures by Ivan Belikov
Creatures 2 is a graphic design project that consists of a compilation of recent personal illustrations about creatures and coats of arms guardians. Created by Ivan Belikov these illustrations have a striking style with a lot of movement and details. The fur is a great example. Ivan was able to recreate the volume beautifully well by using different shades of color. Of course the creatures themselves are simply gorgeous.
Web Design & UI/UX: Bodyport Start-up
Let’s take a look at this superb web design and UI/UX project from the mighty folks from Anagrama and their work for Bodyport. They are a San Francisco based start-up dedicated to the development of at-home cardiovascular monitoring technologies at the reach of everyone. The whole UI across the identity and web design has been made to be easy and friendly to follow. I loved the micro-interactions from the header to icons, it’s pretty neat. I personally wish there was an additional colour to balance the contrast but that might be just me. Hope you like it!
Illustration & Typography: Harnham Salary Guide (2016)
Mixing both 3D Illustration, Typography, and design, let’s take a look at the 2016 Salary Guide of Harnham. A guide that revealed the positive trends in the UK for Analytics and Data professionals and a distinctly candidate driven market. Designed by Craig Minchington and Radim Malinic, they both combined their skills into a composition of 3D, CGI, typography and a vibrant colour palette. Personally knowing both of their styles, the final result is a delightful mixture of a well-defined conceptual layout, props for their work.
