Fabrikk is a new restau rant based in Istanbul. Designer,Salih Kucukaga, who is respon­si ble for the brand ing, let me know that Fabrikk comes from the Latin work Fabrica, which means Factory in English. As a result the design was inspired by the Soviet indus­trial era.

This isn’t a new logo, but it certainly hits close to home. With today marking the 10th anniversary of the tragedy of 9/11, I thought it only fitting to showcase the beautiful identity work they did for the 9/11 Memorial in New York City. The Brand New blog had this to say:

This is not an easy identity job, because you want to acknowledge the missing buildings without making it feel too much of a miserable reminder. The previous logo, which we covered back in 2007, achieved that through the soft depiction of the buildings’ footprints. This one, as a more public-facing identity achieves a good balance between simplicity and something that works to brand a public environment. The execution — set in Hoefler & Frere-Jones’ Verlag — is simple and bold, without much visual fanfare other then the two bright blue ones standing in for the towers. It’s not a revolutionary idea but it perfectly serves the purpose here. And it serves for a solid structure for the rest of the applications.


I saw this a while back and forgot what it was for, so coming across it again is a nice suprise. This branding of the Oslo based library is from Mikael Floysand who also has a nice selection of photography and drawings to have a little gander on too. This identity is so well done, down to the last detail, if you pop onto his webiste you’ll see how much work there is behind it. So good to look at.
