You already know how we feel about Norwegian studio Heydays; their clean, crisp design has prompted us to let them guest post on the site in previous years and we’ve featured enough of their work to give you an idea of just how good they are. So you won’t be surprised to find out that their identity for industrial designers Studio Hansen is another triumphant addition to an already sterling portfolio.
Hansen’s commitment to strong concepts and immaculate finishes is manifested through a simple grid of blue dots that spans the studio’s online and print collateral, providing the perfect background to their reductive geometric logo. While the identity as a whole is remarkably restrained it’s a loud proclamation that Studio Hansen approach each project with a blank canvas and are meticulous in their execution – which ultimately is everything you need from your identity.
