The Happy Show

Filling the Institute of Contemporary Art's (ICA) entire second-floor galleries and Ramp, and activating the inbetween spaces of the museum, Stefan Sagmeister's The Happy Show offers visitors the experience of walking into the designer's mind as he attempts to increase his happiness via mediation, cognitive therapy, and mood-altering pharmaceuticals.

Wo Hing General Store Wo Hing General Store is a contemporary restaurant in San Francisco's Mission district presenting a unique take on Chinese street-food. The identity references the delicate nature of noodles, a main staple on the restaurant's menu. In addition to the logo, we created a rich, colourful visual language using only the aforementioned humble noodle. Using a scanner, designers experimented with raw and cooked noodles to create a number of flowing, abstract images. As a departure from the ubiquitous neon sign seen in many Chinese restaurants, Manual designed a lightweight transparent window sign, screen printed with electroluminescent ink.

From Cologne With Love Once in a while it happens that you have to send real mail out into the world. To make the moment of receiving mail in the post box special again, ARE WE DESIGNER initiated this project to create a set of beautiful goodies to delight clients and friends, themselves and – not to forget – the postman. A whole range of different sticky things to put on envelopes, parcels and other postal packages was created, like different sized address-labels, different kinds of stamps and stickers and a tape with some nice pearls of wisdom on it. Any combination of all these elements is possible, and they fit together perfectly.

Eye is a forward-thinking, innovation-driven Out of Home media company, with an international presence. With rapid growth across different territories, the company needed to define a new vision. It started internally with the development of new cultural values and behaviours plus a new collaborative approach to generating client solutions. This was followed by a new company logo and visual identity system that culminated in the launch of a new customer magazine and global website. The rebrand includes a new symbol and wordmark, tone of voice, behaviours and team guidelines, office and environment design, advertising and marketing campaigns and comprehensive guidelines. We continue to work with Eye as brand guardians and provide ongoing creative direction in the development of their global website.

KIA Art Car

Sagmeister & Walsh created an art car for KIA called 'Light & Shadows'(yin & yang). The car and the surrounding environment was turned into a giant word search. Visitors to the show were asked to find hundreds of hidden yin & yang themed words. Yin words included 'fearful, lazy, slut, shyster, hell, vomit' and yang included 'joy, excitement, orgasm, optimism'.

Metropolitan Wharf Signage Mind Design designed the signage and a customised font for the Metropolitan Wharf building. Since the development is located on the embankment of the River Thames it was an obvious idea to use driftwood for the tenants board. Easier said than done. The project was technically quite challenging. Driftwood had to be found in the right dimension, then cleaned and dried. The lettering was done with sandblasting but some of it was manually enhance with wood dye later. Each piece had to be drilled from the back and fitted with studs which clamped onto large copper rails. This way each sign can be removed individually and exchanged in case new tenants move in. About half of the units are still unoccupied and the new names will be added later. The typeface was designed in collaboration with Neal Fletcher and matches the historic lettering on the outside of the building. The font has two versions, one for sandblasting and one for printing.

Patalastas Shirt Packaging 'Hanger' Historically, Campaigns has always been involved in social advocacy. Since 2003, the company has sent many underprivileged kids from Smokey Mountain to school. For its 25th Anniversary, Campaigns aimed to step up their Smokey Mountain scholarship program by helping up to 31 kids and adding cash bonuses for students who would get high grades. To support this effort, we needed to come up with additional activities to raise more money in a short time. One of the quickest ways to raise funds is to sell t-shirts. To push our t-shirts' sales potential, we capitalised on the Filipinos' nostalgic tendencies by looking back at famous Filipino ads from the past 25 years. To make the merchandise more appealing, we came up with a novel design for the packaging. Made of card, the shirt box was designed in the shape of a clothes hanger with images of vintage Pinoy ads printed in it. The Patalastas shirts were sold out in two weeks, raising nearly P 50,000 from sales.

Reishunger Bio Risotto Reishunger is a German brand who sell high quality rice from the best regions of origin worldwide. Their latest product, Bio Risotto, is a convenience product. All of the ingredients come from organic farms, but the company aims at a different target market with their raw rice products: they are quickly and easily prepared, with the quality one would expect from a Reishunger product. Following these ideas, we took the strict, bold typography from the existing rice packaging and added high quality photography of the main ingredient (tomato, eggplant, porcini, etc.). The script typeface and quirky illustrations communicate playfulness, simplicity and fun, making the Bio Risotto a logical extension of the Reishunger product line.

Naprej! Czech Sports Architecture 1567-2012 A book describing in detail Czech stadiums, gyms and other sports architecture from 1567 to the present. The publisher determined its shape with two clear demands: to save money by using only two colours and for the title of the book to be really, really big on the cover. All photos were then transferred to monochrome, gaining adequate 'archival' quality. Red colour and italics were added to convey the dynamism of motivational slogans often displayed in the gyms, denoting sport as a movement in several senses of the word. And the title encapsulates the book, crossing from front to back over the edge, just like a well-built gymnast would.
