St. Marien-Krankenhaus Corporate Design by arndtteunissen GmbH, Germany

The Concept

In addition to the primary and secondary care hospital, the GmbH (limited liability company) also provides comprehensive inpatient care for the elderly in its retirement home and center. The company’s offering of services also includes outpatient facilities in the associated health clinic. The company requires a clear brand architecture to transparently communicate its structures – both internally and to the outside – that have grown over time. Its appearance should therefore also convey a positive feeling to the often anxious patients, visitors or residents, as well as to radiate warmth and confidence. All of St. Marien-Krankenhaus GmbH’s institutions represent a place of assistance and provide a sense of security – they are places of refuge. In this context, the “Haus” (hospital and home) represents all these descriptions. Consequently, it becomes the central concept in the wording.

St. Marien-Krankenhaus Corporate Design by arndtteunissen GmbH, Germany

The institutes have the brand names “Sankt Marien Krankenhaus” [St. Mary Hospital], “Sankt Marien Seniorenhaus” [St. Mary Senior Citizen Home] and “Sankt Marien Ärztehaus” [St. Mary Health Clinic]. On the other hand, GmbH (limited liability company) is the umbrella brand parent superordinate to the sub-brands. The appearance is based on a soft, round form language. Such elements extend across the entire design from the company typeface and the icon all the way to the rounded corners in its printed media. The usage of a friendly palette of colors itself helps to communicate the brand’s warmth. The umbrella brand has a warm gray palette. A separate color palette in yellow, apricot and blue is assigned to each of the sub-brands. All these features ultimately contribute to the sympathetic character of the brand. Not to mention, it ensures a high degree of recognition in the competitive field.

Artist Statement:

I have always believed that one day I would end my life. It wasn’t a romantic notion or to prove a point. It was just a reality set aside for another, more appropriate time. As someone who has battled depression for most of their life, many times years have passed by without the feeling of knowing what it felt like to truly be happy. Like so many who struggle with this, I have relied on a sense of humor, dark for sure, to keep those near me both entertained and none the wiser of my own brain chemistry’s plot to do me in. This dark humor led me to think about all of the ways in which my life might come to an end. It didn’t matter if it was by my own hand, by someone else’s, or some other accidental occurrence.

I realized it kind of amused me. Thus, I let my mind indulge them all. I found myself wondering what kind of scene someone might stumble upon, what my final image might be. The artist in me finally decided to start depicting these scenarios as self-portraits. Some are considered for a while and some come to me very quickly. Others are driven by location and some are not. Some images are pretty clear what has occurred. For the others, I leave up to the viewer’s interpretation.

Not all are suicides, but they all show me in my state of final repose. The project has helped me to keep some of my darker thoughts of death at bay. It almost become a game. Viewing these for me is seeing myself as an outsider at their final moment. That has given the internal thoughts of my demise a context and reality that I didn’t possess previously. The only thing I don\’t know is what exactly I have planned for me next.

Animation Awards | Ambassadors Wins 2017 Muse Creative Awards

Did you ever give any thought to the fact you never switched banks in your entire life? You are not alone, as the – Creature of Habit can be an example for all of us. The animation, a production by Ambassadors is a Platinum Winner for the Animation Awards category in the 2017 Muse Creative Awards.

Company : Ambassadors

Client : ASN Bank

Project Title : Creature of Habit

Category : Video | Animation

Country : Netherlands

Animation Awards | Ambassadors Wins 2017 Muse Creative Awards

The Concept

ASN Bank changes up the financial world with their new campaign. They demonstrate in a playful way how money can actually make you happy. The financial world is all too often represented in a cliche image. This gives ASN Bank enough reason for to change it to a more contemporary image. The story of the Creature of Habit is honest and the voice over takes you back to those dreamy bed time stories.

Koert van de Ploeg, Colourist at Ambassadors describes it as – an ordinary looking forest where nothing is what it seems to be. “Together with Vincent Lammers I worked on keeping a certain realism within a fictive world. By thickening the canopy within the forest we emphasise the darkness surrounding the Money Badger, but at the same time adding light streaks and spots to sympathise with the Creature of Habit. Together with the whole team we came to a unique balance between light, dark and colour while retaining a realistic concept”

Animation Awards | Ambassadors Wins 2017 Muse Creative Awards

The Idea

The realistic fabric furs, emphasises the tangibility of the characters which accentuates their primary characteristics. “The Creature of Habit wears a woollen sweater, where the Money Badger wear a tie and is made of a striped flannel suit fabric” explains Lammers. This contradiction is also very audible in the music which makes a combination between a playful and a serious tone. “The music needed a severe sound that has a lively translation on screen”, explain Sebastiaan Roestenburg, Founding Partner and Composer at Ambassadors. “So I started looking for sounds that triggers the imagination like the melody of the Celeste piano. It instantly take you to a fable world”.

The film, a masterpiece with an extensive eye for detail, is also very apparent in the animation. Watch Creature of Habit here!

Rodeo with Rottet Invitation Card Design by Rottet Studio wins 2017 Muse Creative Awards

Creative Pick: Rodeo with Rottet invitation card design by Rottet Studio wins 2017 Muse Creative Awards

For an exclusive business development event at the Houston Rodeo, we wanted to create a custom invitation card design that could sit alongside the existing Rottet Studio brand. The ideas are all about elegant, contemporary, and visually clean, while translating the freewheeling spirit of the rodeo.

Invitation Card Design | Rottet Studio wins 2017 Muse Creative Awards

To avoid the childish kitsch of many rodeo themes, we devised a playful yet practical alternative. A red cotton bandana conveying the details of this multi-venue event that guests could also wear to the rodeo itself. The resulting hand-drawn and hand-lettered design is both interactive. It encouraging invitees to unfold and rotate the bandana, and also subtly branded, the swirling typography a nod to the company’s Texas roots.

The careful combination of sans serif and rustic typefaces makes this design a tailored deviation from the firm’s standard brand guidelines. Thus, we selected red and tan accent colors to complement the various textural elements. The idea is to preserve the signature Rottet Studio white and grey color palette.

Unfinished wood, recycled paper, and cotton lend an understated ruggedness to the invitation.They’re meant to be touched as much as they are read. The thank you cards feature a variation of the rope lettering, laser-cut onto grey walnut plaques. Finally, the smoky, seared typography on the thank you cards evokes traditional cattle branding irons used in the livestock trade. At the end of the night, guests received custom grey and white cowboy boot cookies with the thank you plaque, wrapped together with natural jute twine as a finishing touch.

2017 Muse Creative Awards | Amor e Cego Wine Packaging by Rita Rivotti

Background of Product

Love knows no reason. A small olive grove near evora has been passed down from generation to generation, like a family heirloom, despite the great difficulty to maintain it. The desire to continue to preserve it for the future led the current generation to consider packaging and selling the olive oil it produces. Because it is a small production, with the inherent limitations for competitiveness, Rita Rivotti advised their clients to maximise on the tourists that visits the city each year and focus only on selling locally in tourist spots, with packaging that targets this public.

2017 Muse Creative Awards | Amor e Cego Wine Packaging by Rita Rivotti

Meaning Behind the Design

The sentiment behind this project and the target in question merged in our minds immediately to a unique example of the region’s folk art; the statue “Amor e Cego” (Love is blind). This doll is part of a set of decorative figurines (Figurado de Estremoz). Made from clay for centuries by artisans in the Alentejo, it portray feelings, local trades and sacred figures. Besides, the “Amor e Cego” figure, blindfolded and adorned in festive attire, symbolises the irrationality of love. All together, that is the common sentiment in the project. It is the same irrationality that led the family to maintain the olive grove until today.

2017 Muse Creative Awards | Amor e Cego Wine Packaging by Rita Rivotti

For love! Thus, aside from being a package for an extra virgin olive oil produced by a dedicated family, using traditional cultivation methods, it is also a decorative piece, a memento of the region. It is indeed a true icon of popular culture that will be a must-have for any tourist visiting the city. The transport packaging is a simple, ecological and affordable solution that also serves to showcase this charming little bottle. In fact, this project was a bestseller and sold out in the first months, leading the family to expand its production to other olive groves.
