Krausz industries has been designing and manufacturing market leading coupling and repair clamp solutions for water and wastewater applications worldwide.    The visual identity system of the company played a main role in building the design language.  We researched many types of clamps; each had its own qualities and attributes.  We decided to utilize the clamps in our design in myriad ways.  Due to some of the clamps being underground as well as above, we wanted to emphasize a feeling of growth by using natural materials and colors.  Just like the clamps repair and mend water and wastewater pipes, they mend and bind our various design elements together.    This concept is presented using the...

RMIT School of Global Urban and Social Studies

This includes diagonal patterns, straight lines and a more rustic, natural look.

Vilnius Plaza

The area around Vilnius Plaza is a mixed use development situated in Lithuania’s capital city. The development area enjoys direct visual links across the Nerris River to the Gediminas Castle Tower, one of Vilnius’ main historical attractions. To the south, the development abuts the Plaza to Vilnius Cathedral. The site, during the soviet era, was home to the City’s main football stadium which has since become unused and derelict. The residential area to the north with its tightly-knit pedestrian network connects the site back into the Šnipiškės neighborhood. These conditions imply that the site has a potential as a cultural destination between north and south area.   The site can be seen as a cultural d... More
