Corporate Identity for a Pediatricion

Clinic interior 1 If I ever fall sick, I want to be a child again so that I can go to this clinic.'>

I love the color combination & the happy sun-shinning ambience portrayed. It makes anyone who walks in feel great & alive again!

Factordesign together with the interior architecture of Susanne Beissner-Schindler, help to delevoped the clinic Corporate Identity when Dr. Uhlig wanted to refurbished his clinical practice, bearing in mind that Dr. Uhlig wants his little patients to feel comfortable when they enter the practice for a checkup, examination, or immunization.
The result: strong contrasts colors of orange and light blue (as primary colours attract kid's and make the design clear and remarkable.) for the interior that also give a certain warmth to the Corporate Design.

Clinic Stationary and business cardsStationary and business cards inspired by a stethoscope, the most well known tool of a doctor combined with a laughing face.

Pluk-Good food is great fun

Pluk 1 Deliciously pink!
For Tjep (Pluk's designer), healthy means fun too! The design team not only resposible in designing the interior for Pluk but they came out with the identity & name for the shop for Client, Aïda & Zeger too.
Located in Haarlem, Netherlands, with a new take-away formula which offers: fresh juices, yogurt shakes and special salads that customers can compose by themselves, Pluk emphasis on good food does not means boring food.
The interior tries to reflect this juxtaposition of healthy and fun. For some reason healthy wants to look boring but we just said no! The counters contain fruits and vegetables in three color groups. They are actually fake, but because of the way we integrated a special gradient effect the whole counter becomes simply delicious, by the way it took us months to develop the exact right color, gradient and fruit/vegetable combination to get this result: people who enter Pluk are overwhelmed and just cant resist ordering one of the wonderful specialities specially prepared by Aïda and Zeger. -Tjep

Justin Couch Table's Evolution

EvolutionAlexander dining table + side tabeIt’s taken a long time, but Jeff and I have finally figured out this here end table. It began way back when I was making my tables and we thought that this kind of look would work well as a whole line, but we needed to simplify a lot of things. So we started with an end table. Very quickly we used the leg shape that I was already using in the dining table and came up with this. -[de]sein
It all started with Justin Couch’s Wilhelm coffee table and Alexander dining table. They are classic furniture with contemporary touches that are made of Baltic birch but with Alexander that makes use of a walnut veneer too.

Duffy London GLO Canvas

GLO Canvas 1Part baroque and part minimalist chandelier lighting, by DuffyLondon, a.k.a. Chris Duffy—a young, cool, hipster of the London design field.
GLO Canvas 2GLO Canvas 3GLO Canvas 4These light fixtures are digitally printed on canvases & it's a complement to your room art pieces too. DuffyLondon executes fantastically simple ideas with the greatest of style.
His textile prints are as fearless as they are fashionable and as well suited to a formal dining room as a college dorm room. By using his humorous graphic designs for wall and hanging lights he's building a body of work fueled equally by edginess and utility. -design public
