Brand Design System | Vitaminwater by Collins

After 20years in the market (yup time flies) vitaminwater asked Collins to revitalize their brand with a refreshed strategy, design system and visual language. The brand needed an injection of energy in order to keep competing with the high number of copycat brands.

Collins felt they needed to reinvigorate the magic that made them so iconic in the first place. The the new solution would leverage their existing iconic label, push their bold tone of voice, and support the endless variety of flavors. It was crucial to claim back their personality, and firmly position them as a champion of vibrancy. 

Vibrancy of personality, expression, and identity — an idea that was natural to their brand and something the world could use a little more of. The incredible vitaminwater brand book is the exclamation point at the end of that process. It’s part history, part strategy, and part guidelines, it’s told in vitaminwater’s unmistakeable cheeky voice, and best of all it uses the new vivid and optimistic visual identity. It’s an incredible piece of work and worthy of all the praise it’s received. Nice work Collins.

Minimal Typography | By Nick Barclay
Minimal Typography | By Nick Barclay

by Andrew Smith June 22, 2019

Graphic Designer Nick Barclay has decided to pay tribute to cities and their 3 favorite colors through his minimal poster series 'Three Colors Cities'. For the city of New York, the yellow is reminiscent of the color of the taxis, the green is for the Statue of Liberty and the gray refers to the skyscrapers. On the poster of London, we find the red buses and phone booths. You get the idea, it's a fantastic and highly stylish use of the Swiss design style. The approach is something worth bookmarking if you need some killer typography examples.

Leroy van Drie used a clever combination of photography and illustration to create this high impact campaign for the Encore music scene in Amsterdam. The campaign visuals represent the hip-hop and R&B culture and translate both movement and rhythm into static poster designs. The carefully overlaid doodles and typography give a distinctly creative and human element to the work. The visual energy is a great way to help captures the viewers attention.
