This branding work took in the study of Albrecht Dürer, making large versions of Assyrian cylinder rolls out of plaster and lots of illustration. The type is specially designed and based on Dürer’s ideas of harmony. The ideas behind the brand have a timeless quality, understatement and an international outlook.
The word Intaglio is a design incised or engraved into a material that is then printed.
After making the type for real by hand in plaster and photographing it in raking light, the logo was eventually made up in Illustrator point-by-point with three sets of shadows. When used under a size of 10cm it is indistinguishable from a photograph but, because the logo is in vectors, it can be scaled infinitely to any size
The print work has a calm and classy look as befits the people working there.
