Today while exploring the wonderful world of Pinterest, I stumbled cross the work of Foundry Co, a Dallas,TX-based design collaborative. Quickly I feel in love with their typography, crisp vector work and layering, which seems to signature of work from this studio. I particularly enjoy their sensitivity to color, which is apparent in several of their different projects. If you find yourself working for one brand (ie, an in-house situation, as I do), it is quite refreshing to see work from independent studios that cover a range of projects and brands. I enjoy seeing the freedom from these independent studios and finding ways to push my brand forward.
So let’s see some of the work! First up, Weld: A collaborative photo studio
Weld is a collaborative creative space in the industrial district of Dallas, therefore the building and space is the product that sells and furthermore the brand itself. Our goal with the logo was merely to accompany the space so we had to do something in the spirit of the building: industrial, clean and simple.
Urban Organics is a local organic food co-op that retrieves crops from local farmers and brings them to the city, allowing members to purchase local organically grown food direct from the farm.
Emporium Pies is a boutique pie shop in the Bishop Arts District of Oak Cliff Dallas.
And finally, here’s a sampling of some of their branding projects.
I particularly love the branding for Ashlee Renee (below).
How awesome is this church branding?? Can I get an amen?
