Interbrand Australia

Interbrand Australia are a studio at the top of their game, hot off the heels of their rebranding of Sydney Opera House which has deservedly been doing the rounds on the design blogs, is their playful rebranding of another Australian instituation, the Australian Design Centre.

“Having established kids as ADC’s new primary focus, we needed to find a way to communicate with them (without excluding our other audiences). So we created a colourful and customisable identity system, inspired by building blocks – the universal symbol of creativity, discovery, and learning through play. But it’s not all fun and games. While the system encourages curiosity and experimentation, it always puts what matters most at the centre – no matter whether that’s a global issue, an exhibition title, or simply the name of a visiting child.”

British Rail Corporate Identity Manual: Kickstarter by Wallace Henning

A high spec reproduction of the iconic British Rail Corporate Identity Manual, now funding on Kickstarter

Leaves on the lines, the wrong kind of snow, and soggy stale sandwiches never really helped British Rail become a brand that was truly loved by the nation. Yet, in 2011 the readers of Creative Review voted British Rail’s ‘double arrow’ as their sixth favourite logo.

This book will celebrate British Rail’s identity in its entirety – not only its distinctive symbol. With full agreement from the Department of Transport – these iconic manuals initially created in 1965 will be published as a new, high production book.

Foreword by Michael C Place creative director and founder of Build. Introduction by Tony Howard, former head of design at British Rail. Essay from James Greenfield, creative director & founder of Koto.

The project has been created by Wallace Henning, a London based graphic designer. Through the research for his MA, investigating an identity for a renationalised transport network in Britain, lead to his passion and collection of British Rail design.

The Kickstarter campaign for the British Rail Corporate Identity Manual runs until 22 December 2015, and is seeking to raise £40,000. Visit the campaign to read more here

Lust Pro Series: Positype

Lust is a serif typeface designed by Neil Summerour and released through Positype, described as a “typographic guilty pleasure”.

If Lust seems both new and familiar, that’s because it is. The series unapologetically channels Herb Lubalin, but produced with a deliberate, contemporary twist. Intended to be set large, the typeface boasts 3 widths and 5 weights and matching italics for both the Regular and Didone variants (that’s 60 fonts in total).

To celebrate the release of the typeface, photographer Daniela Nomura & Neil Summerour collaborated to create a “visual narrative” for the Lust Pro release, inspired by the human form. You can see the result here.

Lust Pro is currently 50% off for a limited time.

Photography by Anderson – What you see is what you get

Photographer’s websites are notorious for being pretty bad. Rarely does a photographers website do justice to the quality of their work, as well as getting across the personalities of the photographer and the way they work.

What You See Is What You Get is a simple but playful campaign for husband and wife duo Photography by Anderson to raise their profile and demonstrate their most important rule: it’s got to be great. Personal or commissioned, big budget or small.

Don’t fancy playing the guess game? Skip straight to their lovely portfolio here.

Pecker

*** NSFW(ish) ***

Introducing Pecker, the book, the bible of bang sticks, the one stop cock shop, is the world’s biggest collection of knobs, dongs, penis pencillings and schlong scribbles.

Pecker is the brainchild of designer and visual artist Jon Bland and copywriter Louie Zeegen, we caught up with them ahead of their upcoming launch at KK Outlet this Thursday to chat bollocks:

Pecker. How did the book come about? We lived together for a few months when Jon moved to London at the beginning of this year. After helping each other on various other projects, we decided to spend the time under the same roof producing something together. A penis book was the obvious choice.

What was your thinking behind Pecker? Is it all a clever social commentary on the domination of males in the creative industries? Or cause willies are funny? The beautiful thing about drawing a penis is that anyone can produce a belter. It’s as simple as that really, but yeah sure, the social commentary thing works too.

The book launch is Thursday 22nd at KK Outlet, can you reveal a bit about it? We’re taking over KK with shit loads of dicks and beer. It’ll be more like a mini exhibition than just a normal book launch. It’s a must for any penis enthusiast.

Who’s Peckers can we expect to see on show? There are some big names that we’re super chuffed to have inside our book, such as Ian Wright, Marion Deuchars, Jean Jullien and Mike Perry, but also people who aren’t illustrators at all, just massive cock lovers. There’s a healthy mix of superstars, professionals and total novices. Cock lover no. 1 Mr Bingo has written us a lovely foreword too.

Who’s Peckers have been most impressive so far? We’re big fans of George Heaven’s – he drew in it about 10 minutes at the Kiosk Independent Book Fair in Peckham that we had a stall at. Quick, hilarious and disgusting – the perfect pecker. We’ve had other great ones from Stella Murphy, Li-En Yeung and Leon Karssen. After seeing thousands, we are hard to shock now, so generally the more bizarre the better.

How long does it stay up for? Just over a week, but the book will pleasure you forever. Mum’s Christmas present sorted right? www.pecker.world

Anything else to add? We continue to receive dick every day but it’s fine – our inbox is massive. We hope it never stops: mailsack@pecker.world — Thanks Louie and Jon

“A truly flexible brand was required to reflect a truly flexible service. Unlocking and liberating the ‘loop’ in the Quiqup Q, we developed a framework to consistently communicate this quality, that is infinitely adaptable but instantly identifiable.”

Thanks Andy
