Triforce is a company that offers innovative solutions oriented around energy transition and ecological issues. As part of its development it has entrusted us with the production of an original film to promote its commercial offers to its collaborators. Given genuine carte blanche, we opted for a grandiloquent tone and plenty of off-beat humor. A big thanks to the Triforce team that gave us absolute freedom to create and interpret their needs. We had a blast and we hope you will enjoy it!

One that has been run by seven generations.

Blandy adapts a new image into their entire range. Additional features include the family crest, which reinforces the establishment date of the company.

2017 Muse Creative Awards | St. Marien-Krankenhaus Corporate Design

Healthcare Corporate Branding by Arndtteunissen

St. Marien-Krankenhaus corporate design by arndtteunissen GmbH, Germany is a Platinum Winner in the 2017 Muse Creative Awards. The St. Marien-Krankenhaus GmbH is a regional healthcare company in the German city of Ratingen.

Country : Germany

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.

Packaging Design Awards | Think Bold Studio wins Muse Creative Awards

Muse Packaging Design Awards Winner – Black Mama Craft Beer Label Design

Black Mama is a special edition black IPA craft beer. As a whole, this product is a representation of a connection between the process of making the beer and the craft of the beer label design itself as a whole.  Its characteristics’ define upon the belief that the parts intimately interconnects and accounts only by reference to the whole. What’s Unique? Most craft beer packaging has no soul, no craft, and a poor image. Overall, this diminishes the tedious process of making the beer. Besides, it does not reflects the pride the brewer has when selling the beer.

A label, it can say a lot- stories and passion. After the crafting of the beer, all these disappears. For that, a good label gives that passion and stories a visual impact.

Black Mama says, yes this beer was crafted with work and thought behind it. People who like craft beer will understand and value it. Cheers to that!

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.
