Tasteful designs from young Madrid duo Naranjo – Etxeberria

Back at the start of July we received a thick publication through the letterbox that purported to be a new kind of publication. The cloth-bound hardback book was given over to the work of Spanish designer Albert Folch, discussing his creative career to date in the form of a recipe book. The content, contributors, typeface and colour scheme were all decided by Albert – great news as he’s one of our favourites – but the actual concept and design of Cook Book were the responsibility of a studio we hadn’t yet heard of.

The quality of Cook Book implies a seasoned design studio, but in fact it’s the work of Miguel Naranjo and Diego Etxeberria, two young designers from Madrid with a small but impressive portfolio of tasteful projects to their name. Trading under the moniker Naranjo – Etxeberria they’ve now produced two issues of Cook Book, some film credits, and a handful of extremely slick identities – one of which is this beautiful piece of branding for architectural project managers Sobremesa. The classic serif typeface (Cheltenham LT Regular), marbled textures and muted pastel palettes all combine to give the impression of a studio capable of producing only exceptionally high-end work; which, when you’re creating buildings from scratch, is probably exactly what you’re looking for.
