The Hell Gate
Photography

VISUAL IDENTITY

The Hellgate is a syndication platform and a collective, based in New York, which discovers and represents contemporary photography talent, inspired by the music scene. The visual identity combines the unique elements and features of the company: custom approach to the creative needs of each project, portfolio combination of amateur and professional photographers and a set up different than any other traditional “photo agency”. The logo embraces all these elements and functions as a “personal signature” in all applications of the corporate identity. The cheap papers used, in combination with the gold typography and handmade sketches, create an uncanny effect. The specially designed multi-purpose tool, can be folded in various ways and used as a notebook cover, a cd case and a A4 folder.

Nina Robinson @ The Hellgate

POSTER

The Hellgate Photography is a production company based in New York, functioning as a collective and as a unique syndication platform, which discovers and represents compelling art inspired by music. This poster is the first in a series and its aim is to introduce the work of photographer Nina Robinson to the clients of the Hellgate. Instead of showcasing photographs, a custom illustration is designed inspired by the work of Robinson, which is characterized by visual simplicity and strong narrative. The main concept is to introduce each photographer via a custom illustration, which recalls the idiosyncratic philosophy of the Hellgate Photography.

Taste Like Greece

BRAND IMPLEMENTATION

Greece's national brand for the promotion of Greek products internationally created for HEPO (Hellenic Foreign Trade Board). The logo is made up of two simple circles: two disks of life, one enclosing the other, the same way life encloses taste. Inspired by every corner of Greece, by every kitchen, by the joyful moments of our people, it symbolizes a plate, the table around which the family gathers, the Sundays of the Greeks, the circle of friends. The main ideas conveyed in all applications (from the t-shirts and memorabilia to the environmental graphics for trade shows and the exhibitors’ catalogues) is that despite of the crisis, Greek producers are trustworthy and that Greek products are of high quality and deserve a share in the international markets.

Art+Nature

VISUAL IDENTITY & EXHIBITION CATALOGUE

A group show by 80 Greek artists organised by the Hellenic Ministry of the Environment. The logo is a symbol of synergies: art+nature, artists+the environment, art+the State. The plus (+) symbol is the connective tissue and a positive force. Custom typography was inspired by geometric symbols found both in nature and in art. Using environmental friendly papers and printing methods, this project brings together art and graphic design in an eco-conscious manner. All papers are 100% recyclable and are used in an eco-nomic manner: the envelope is the invite and it includes the programme. The catalogue has two parts: handwritten poems and the artworks underlining the concept of synthesis.

Land of Promise

ΕXHIBITION CATALOGUE

A group art show curated by Iliana Fokianaki, which took place during ReMap2, a contemporary art platform, taking place in a derelict area of downtown Athens parallel to the Athens Biennale. The exhibition space was an abandoned hotel and ex-psychiatric hospital called “Serenity”. The catalogue was published after the exhibition ended as a documentation of the project. The jacket is also a poster, which shows the exterior of the building and holds the exhibition texts, while the main body is designed to show the participating artists and their work. A no-budget production and a design approach which connects the curator’s idea for a “Land of Promise” which always fails its promise.
