Alice (in Wonderland) The Washington Ballet's premiere of Alice (in Wonderland) was a new chapter for the prestigious organisation. With new costumes, choreography and musical scores, the world premiere proved to be a most curious performance. To properly celebrate the event Design Army designed and art directed an exclusive photo editorial for Washington Life magazine – and later painted the D.C. landscape red with posters, online ads, and bus stops all over Washington, DC.

Acid Lab for Paul Chambers K4 is a near legendary alternative music club in Ljubljana. In the past few years we were involved with a DJ/VJ collective called 'Smetnjak'( Trash Can or Dumpster) and we did stage and floor decoration for music events. On this occasion our featured guest was Paul Chambers and this was the decoration for that night. Materials: neon wall vinyl stickers, polystyrene, electric cables, light-boxes.

A-Moloko 'A-Moloko' do automated sales of farm-fresh milk via a chain of vending machines. The client was offered a new brand name and a new symbol which had an upturned letter 'A' in its basis - symbol 'Alef' which came to us from the first letter alphabet of the Semitic tribes who lived on the Sinai Peninsular in XVI century B.C. The stylised symbol resembling a cow's muzzle became the brand basis. The laconic visual style is built on the clear system of symbols demonstrating the journey of milk from the fields with ecological grass to the automatic machines and the consumer. The pattern of symbols allows the easy branding of automatic machines of various configurations, as well as implementing all of the company's communication materials.

Nuts.com

Michael Bierut and his team at Pentagram created a new identity and packaging that would help establish Nuts.com as a distinctive brand. The redesign incorporates the brand's irreverent and chatty tone of voice into the packaging with friendly hand-drawn typography and illustrations. Bags and shipping boxes are covered in commentary such as, 'This way to your taste buds!' and 'Isn't it nut-astic?' The typeface was hand-drawn by Bierut and converted into a font by Jeremy Mickel, who provided a lot of alternate characters. The illustrator Christoph Niemann redrew the cartoon nuts to complement the typeface; the mascots appear on the bags of nuts, where they are reversed out to show the product inside. // Client_Nuts.com // Agency_Pentagram Design // Art Director_Michael Bierut // Designers_Michael Bierut, Katie Barcelona, Aron Fay // Illustrator_Christoph Niemann // Font Designer_Jeremy Mickel // Country_USA

Fisherman' Rubber Boots Everybody is aware of boots' primary function protection from water. However, there are many advantages that are not obvious at first glance, and that consumers might not be aware of. 'Fisherman' boots are able to protect the wearer from a wide range of dangers: environmental debris, biological threats, natural, chemical and electrical hazards. We realised that the best way to communicate protective functions of the boots would be to use the example of underwater creatures. This topic is very relevant for fishermen, and creates an excellent opportunity to combine several types of risks in one visual. The package itself is designed as a mini-stand and works as an eye catcher. An illusion of boots immersed in water draws consumers' attention to the many protective properties of the 'Fisherman' boots.

Rhiz - Play Date

The 2011 theme for the annual 12 poster series for the Viennese music club 'rhiz' was 'playground'. The 12 installations used for the design titled 'play date' emotionalise the viewer and bring back childhood memories. Design is a code for the content and the target group. The rhiz program focuses on experimental electronic music, ect. The way to rethink things, to play with stereotypes, to destroy them and to recreate things in a new way, all with a great deal of black humor, serves as the main source of inspiration.

24 Solar-terms Characters With this project, we went back to an age with no electricity or machines, when humans scheduled their lives to conform to the seasons, which were been partitioned into 24 solar terms according to ancient Chinese wisdom. Starting year, Voicer and I began to study certain solar cycles, which became an opportunity for creating the '24 solar-term Character' project. Each poster corresponds to a certain solar cycle. I finished the poster right before we moved into a new cycle. Chinese people worship the harmony between timing, location and human relationships, which means doing the right thing at the right moment, going along with nature. From early winter last year to late fall this year, I expressed my inner sentiment with my most familiar language, enabling myself to face and feel life with a more peaceful mind, in hope of not neglecting the ancient wisdom of life in this modern age.
