"The identity system for Lake house was inspired by local trail maps - encouraging guest to get out of their room and enjoy the Adirondacks. We used topographic patterns, mountain coordinates and created iconography around the activities available during each season. The color palette is minimal, letting the natural textures and landscape take center stage. A rustic red is used throughout, adding a pop of color that ties back to the rich heritage of the Adirondacks."

At Tag Collective, the mission is to empower the people they believe in with thoughtful design solutions. Tag Collective believes that good design is more than just a pretty face — that’s why they’re dead set on working with visionaries who have the guts to do meaningful work. They promise their clients a process born from human empathy, designed to draw clarity from chaos to help them fulfill their potential.

"The ‘A’ symbol embodies my own aesthetic and approach to design. It is clean, minimal and typographic. No more than it needs to be a simple representation of my work. The overall identity is strong with impact but also retains an elegant feel. I used a collection of design associated words as a visual element, some using alliteration and some not. A photo of me when I was two adds to the character and extends the visual language making it even more personal."

Aaron Canning is a graphic designer from Dublin, Ireland. He is extremely passionate about typography, book design and everything minimal. His work has a strong emphasis on structure, simplicity and clarity to convey his brief as accurately and precisely as possible.

La Tortillería    |    http://latortilleria.com

"Located in Ourense, Spain, this place is anything but typical, it is a refreshing alternative for local walkers used to the traditional bar or restaurant. The architect Ruben D. Gil and his wife Gretta R. Valdés decided to spice up the rainy Galician city with an unusual spot to enjoy international cuisine and drinks in an atmosphere of light wood ceilings, adobe walls, dim lighting and steel furniture. The agency worked on the design of its visual identity, stationery materials, packaging for branded products, to go packaging, coasters, menus and tote bags. A custom made bottle of water on each table will welcome its guests in October 2014."

Originally founded in an old tortilla factory building, La Tortillería is a creative company with a passion for images and words with the exceptional ability of turning them into an exquisite reflection of an idea.
