It was just the other day that we featured some striking new work from Graphic Thought Facility, but they’ve clearly been busy working on all manner of interesting projects so we thought, what the hell, let’s get them up on the site again.
This time they’ve undertaken a wholesale rebrand of one of our favourite architectural and branding agencies, Brinkworth, redrawing their logo mark, redesigning their website and giving them a brand new set of guidelines to help their company image match that of the internationally renowned work they produce. The logo itself is a clean, simple sans serif word mark that’s appropriate for a heavy emboss on a business card, but it can be inset into a variety of custom-drawn patterns based on architectural cross-hatching. We presume that’s an attempt to show the transferrable skills that Brinkworth can apply to any number of client demands and the broad range of their creative practice, but that’s just our conjecture.
Alongside this visual work, Glasgow-based interactive studio Graphical House have built them an incredibly functional new website, based on GTF’s designs, that features even more of those custom patterns. Having spent a fair bit of time using it now I’m suddenly very aware of how out of date their last one was. Good to see them changing things up.
