Design of Photographer Dante Busquets website

dantebusquets.com

Frontend dev

Redesign and front-end development for the website of a fine art and portrait photographer from Berlin. The goal is to achieve a modern, simple revamp of Dante's original site, where the photographs stand out and the site navigation is friendly to the user. I suggested to Dante the importance of making the site responsive and fluid, ready for high-definition screens of all sizes. He also wanted an easy to manage blog.

The development is based in HTML5 Boilerplate with a Bootstrap framework, thus formatting Dante's photos for a web-showcase was of major importance. The site is under construction at the moment.

Logo design of Opleve magazine by Diego Vega

Opleve

Cross Media Design

Cross Media design project for a magazine targeted to young travelers of the Danish train system (DSB).

Identity and graphic design proposal for a new monthly magazine and website. The task was to find a name for the magazine, create a logo and a design proposal both for the print and online.

My concept was to focus on young Copenhageners life-style and culture. The idea behind ​the name Opleve (Experience) is that it should give a sense of activity and that one has to be there with their own senses to experience something.

The logo is a paraphrase of Robert Indiana's LOVE works, thus giving the idea of something you already are familiar with. The logo stays fresh from issue to issue as it changes color every time the magazine is released. The idea behind the design aims to be airy, simple and uncluttered, with content that is relevant and inspiring to young readers.

Logo and identity design of Øko Kød, Organic meat by Diego Vega

Eco Meat

Identity Design

Design assignment and evaluation. My project was to design a packaging and label for an ecological meat product. Create the name of the company and design an identity to brand the product locally, at speciality stores and supermarkets (retail).

I presented a dummy of the packing and label, together with design guidelines for ØKO KØD, a company which produces eco-friendly meat products with the highest environmental standards.

There are two points I want to target with my idea. First, consumers lack information about the meat we buy and eat, and second, the packaging, in which mechanized systems and plastic or styrofoam trays send the wrong signal to people who think about ecology and the environment.

n Denmark we eat way too much meat, and there are many problems in relation to the industrial production of meat products. At the same time, consumers habits and food culture are changing towards awareness. Therefore, I think it is important for stores to signal a healthier lifestyle. It'll be ideal for customers to know where their meat comes from, how were the animals condition during their upbringing, what date the animal was slaughtered and perhaps with what method. All these info can come forward with a track-n-trace QR code, not as a service from the producer but as a requirement from the government Food Administration.

The packaging has to be produced of sustainable materials, which gives a good opportunity for retailers to show that they have a good food handling, that only offers its customers the freshest of the freshest of animals which had a healthy life. I would like to present an innovative packaging which is made from sugar cane fiber (bagasse), which is a great alternative to plastic and styrofoam in packaging application. Bagasse is cheap to produce and can be certified as compostable 100pct. Bagasse food packaging degrades 1-3 months in a commercial composting plants and 2-4 months in a home composting environment.

Poster design of for a campaign for Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) for their work in Africa

MSF

Poster Design

Poster competition entry for a campaign for Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) for their work in Africa.

I wanted to work with typography, aiming for a signal that gives a sense of acute crisis just using color and text. MSF provided the text and some basics requirements the poster should contain.

I drew inspiration from Russian constructivist period. From the first idea and sketches, my design evolved a lot along the way until I was satisfied with the finished version. This work done in Illustrator, was a very rewarding process. I was focused on getting something that could be used, that for me it was very exciting to do something for a good cause.

Copenhagen Film Fund

Logo Design

Logo entry for a competition organized by the newly founded Copenhagen Film Fund, a collaboration between the public and private sectors to invest in both Danish and International film productions.

The logo was designed by playing with the fund's name and colors, especially yellow and purple to provide contrast. The text is set in Gill Sans and Helvetica Neu.

My idea sprang from the inspiration of collaboration and communication. There are many factors that come together for a film to become a reality. I see Copenhagen Film Fund as a foundation and possibility for a film to be completed. Therefore I thought that a block could serve as a metaphor for something solid to build on. And because a film is always team work, the letters are very close to each other, overlapping and supporting each other.

Newspaper production

The Copenhagen Post

Layout

The Copenhagen Post is a small weekly newspaper, that since '98 has been Denmark's English-language newspaper with Danish news. The Cph Post also can be found online with a news service that is updated daily.

I was layout and DTP responsible for The Copenhagen Post from 2005 to 2007, where I primarily layouted the newspaper. The work was performed with QuarkXPress and Adobe CS software.

Other tasks included: formatting of materials, image processing. Preparing and send the newspaper for offset printing and uploading a PDF version for the web. I also took care of updating the website, the archival of materials, and sometimes photographing and ad design and production.

The job of Layouter is a very central part of the graphic production and workflow, where one has a close communication with editors, journalists, the sales department and the printing company.
