Creative Pick: 2016 Muse Creative Awards Gold Winner: Star Wars Flat Design Characters by Filipe de Carvalho, Portugal

Star Wars Flat Design Characters

Company : Filipe de Carvalho

Project Title :  Star Wars Flat Design Characters

Category : Infographic / Icon / Pattern

Country : Portugal

In 2014, “May The Flat Be With You” was published, a flat design personal project depicting 12 classic Star Wars characters. In 2015, I was asked by Vanity Fair to develop some of the new characters from Disney’s next blockbuster “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. The idea was to use some of the classic characters illustrated previously, & mix them with some new ones using the same flat design visual style.

Muse Awards - Star Wars Flat Character Design

The idea behind these illustrations is to strip down the characters to their most basic details, giving them a minimalistic look. Long shadows, strong contrasting colours & simple structuring lines helped the project maintain its clean visual style, while illustrating the characters in a very recognizable way.

With Mandarina Studio’s exceptional talent for designing fresh, sophisticated interiors, it was only fitting to redesign the brand to evoke similar qualities.

Amanda Reid’s bold, eclectic style and daring use of color was not accurately portrayed in the studio’s previous, outdated visual identity, so it was time to hit the refresh button.

Muse Awards - Interior Design Rebranding

Working with Amanda to understand the direction for her business, Refinery 43 created a new logo, brand identity and website to vastly set Mandarina apart from the competition and duly relate to high-end clientele in need of a unique, personalized and inspiring new look.

Creative Pick: 2016 Muse Creative Awards Platinum Winner: Shakti Bhog Brand Film: Celebrating The Spirit Of Philately by Passion Film, India

Muse-Awards-Passion-Film-India

Company :  Passion Film

Project Title : Shakti Bhog Brand Film: Celebrating The Spirit Of Philately

Category : Corporate Image

Country : India

Shakti Bhog Foods Limited, is a company that was born out of the deep concern to provide hygienic staple food to the people. Its main business lies in the production of Wheat and Rice. After all before gaining independence in 1947 from the British, India was a land of princely states and kingdoms without a proper national identity. Even after independence, India is culturally diverse in terms of its people, languages and traditions.

Muse-Awards-Passion-Fruit

POSTAGE STAMPS with its wide usage came as a solution to be used as communication tools across the length and breadth of the nation. Issued by Post & Telegraphic Office nationally, STAMPS through their engraved imagery successfully communicated the Planning Commission’s initiatives with respect to food and agricultural policies.

Muse-Awards-Passion-Film

Building on this historical and cultural legacy, Postage Stamps have been adopted in the telling the story of Shakti Bhog in this film. The film tells this journey in an innovative way celebrating the spirit of ‘Philately- the study of stamps and postal cards’.

Creative Pick: 2016 Muse Creative Awards Gold Winner: The Human Rights Zoetrope by Sophia Kyriacou, United Kingdom

Muse-Awards-Sophia-Kyriacou

Company : Sophia Kyriacou

Project Title : The Human Rights Zoetrope

Category : Motion Graphics

Country : United Kingdom

Muse-Awards-Sophia-Kyriacou

I was commissioned by Noon Visual Creatives to design a television programme brand on the various aspects of human rights, simply called, Human Rights.

To express the various aspects of human rights I turned to the concept of the Zoetrope. The Greek word, Zoe, means life and tropos, wheel, so created a “wheel of life” scenario with a Ying and Yang approach.

Muse-Awards-Sophia

The Zoetrope is grounded by water, without it; there simply is no life. As the viewer is taken above the tiers, the imprisoned dove flying free contrasts the negative scenario of the prisoner. Above a Syrian child wearing a life jacket suggests to have travelled across the Mediterranean Sea to find hope and is contrasted by a young girl oblivious, happily playing with a spinning top.

An essential part of the brief was the opening title sequence had to withstand repeated viewing, packed with stories and deliver both English and Arabic end frame typographical versions but with identical visuals.

Creative Pick: 2016 Muse Creative Awards Platinum Winner: The Play Revolution by Julius Cruickshank, Australia

Muse-Awards-Logo-Design

Company : Julius Cruickshank

Project Title : The Play Revolution

Category : Logo

Country : Australia

Muse-Awards-Logo-Design

Play is one of the most effective tools for keeping human relationships fresh and exciting. The Play Revolution is an energetic team that are trained to go into any workplace that is suffering from disconnection and staff friction and help them out of it through activities, creativity and play.

The brief requested creativity, connection and an approach that was child-like but not childish.

Muse-Awards-Logo-Design

The Meccano pieces represent the relationships within a workplace. While being a toy, they encourage creativity in their potential. By pairing stylised Meccano pieces “drawn on a strict grid” with a bold colour scheme we achieved a combination of balance and creativity while still having the option for a bright symbol that would be taken seriously by a crew of 50 lawyers who were being asked to play an egg and spoon race.
