Lithuania really isn’t a country we see a great deal of design work from; those guys just never seem to get in touch with us. But when they do the quality of work is pretty damn impressive, as with the latest offering from award-winning design studio New. Recently they were tasked with the job of creating a complete visual identity for new haute-cuisine dining destination Stebuklai, in Vilnius. Specialising in modern Baltic food, the venue required an identity that set it on a par with the very best of Europe’s culinary cities.
For New, the experience was a steep learning curve; it’s the first time they’ve taken on a complete branding project and worked with such a variety of specialists, from interior designers and mural painters to plain old lithographic printers. But they’ve done a terrific job, adding a fresh and exciting presence to a world so often dominated by tried and tested modes of visual communication.
