From Alvin Diec Studio, Youth Experimental Studio, and The Collected Works

Friday Likes 148

To close out the year for Friday Likes we have an eclectic selection with work from Atlanta, Lima, and New York.

The Optimist by Alvin Diec Studio

The Optimist by Alvin Diec Studio

The Optimist is a seafood restaurant in Atlanta, GA, that “brings a seaside fish camp experience to landlocked Atlantans” and its identity by local firm Alvin Diec Studio is as quirky as that description. While there is a logo (a coupling of an elegant script “The” and an industrial “Optimist”) the identity excels in adding all other kinds of elements like 1-color vintage clip-art, other scripts, and a range of oddball promo items like cabin-style keys and matchboxes. It’s all cohesive in its cohesiveness-less. See full project

Lotus Studio by Youth Experimental Studio

Lotus Studio by Youth Experimental Studio

Lotus Studio is a photo and video studio in Lima, Peru, specializing in capturing weddings. Taking its name after the lotus flower, local firm Youth Experimental Studio did a stylish and most minimal abstraction of it. The stationery, foil stamped on a grayish stock, looks elegant and beautiful, just the way a bride and groom would want their photos to be. See full project

See Through Lab by The Collected Works

See Through Lab is an experimental software studio based in Brooklyn, NY, developing software and installations. This is a slightly limited Friday Like as what caught my attention about it was the animation above. I realize it’s kind of a cheap trick and the 1960s – 70s television did that misregistration of screen colors as a normal glitch but, here, the exaggerated stretching of the layers and smooth elastic animation give this a cool, edgy vibe for a small geeky studio. There are also some layered acrylic business cards at the link and some nice elaboration on the concept and execution. See full project
