Mammal Design: Antler rebrand

Mammal Design: Antler rebrand

Brand: Antler
Title: Antler rebrand
Headline and copy text: New playful identity for Antler luggage

Agency: Mammal, London
Strategy: The Cernis Collective
Agency website: www.mammaldesign.com www.thecerniscollective.com
Creative Director: Joe Hosp
Art Director: Robin Powell
Copy writer: Robin Powell / The Cernis Collective
Photographer: Matthew Shave
Published: September 2013
Short rational: Antler recognised that it had lost its way over the last ten years and needed to re-energise the brand and give the business a more sophisticated look and feel. The new identity features a new logotype and marque. The previous marque used the stags head and antlers, which we felt were no longer relevant. It was very masculine and we wanted to appeal to women more than the previous identity did. The typeface we chose for the wordmarque – Harbour by Gareth Hague of Alias fonts, perfectly fitted what we wanted, when used in a new context with new imagery and language, adds a playful, cheeky but sophisticated twist to the brand. We needed a marque that was simple, so we used the A from the logotype placed in a circle – which seemed fitting for a brand that's all about movement.

T&T: Mr Porter 'The Commute'

Brand: Mr Porter
Title: 'The Commute'

Agency: T&T
Agency website: http://www.tandtcreative.com/
Published: September 2013
Short Rational: The city streets are no longer empty, the subways are heaving with workers once more and there's even been a touch of frost already - that September post-holiday, back-to-school feeling has well and truly kicked in. However, that needn't be bleak news: this is the month of nailing those work resolutions, slipping into some new office-ready ensembles and getting ready to make a mark on the autumn. We took to the streets of London early one morning with 22-year-old award-winning free runner Mr Pip Andersen to demonstrate how the office commute needn't involve sitting in front of a wheel, standing in a queue or being squashed between fellow commuters. Admittedly, as you will witness, this form of transport might not suit everyone...
