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.

Short Rationale: We created a unique graphic and structural design that is strong, progressive and masculine. The new structure features the bear claw marks on the sides of the bottle adding more character and texture and creating an innovative grip area that enhances the consumer experience. Ursus new iconic packaging identity and innovative structural design celebrates national pride and achievement and creates a new consumer experience taking the brand to an entirely new, more premium, level.

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...

Short rational : The new Crystal ski branding features an illustrated mountain landscape, a new flexible design system which can be assembled as required to work wherever customers are – whether that is in-resort, in-store, online or reading their favourite newspaper.

This flips the mindset of the organisation from a sales practice to a shop of choice. Now, you can do what you want, when you want, making for more memorable holidays.
