Ekkist are a Passivhaus and WELL Standard™ accredited consultancy leading the movement in architecture designed for well-being. Seeking to sustainably deliver the next generation of building design, their services range from architectural blueprints for self-builders to strategic masterplanning.
Ekkist’s new identity pairs a warm over-sized sans-serif logo type treatment with the analytical voices of light sans-serif and slab-serif typefaces to project a progressive, technical and design-led brand. In line with Ekkist’s environmental focus, stationary is specified on a paper stock produced with waste potato starch and is Green-e- and FSC-certified. The coarse texture is evocative of raw construction materials with an honest, tangible quality.
The studio worked across name consultancy, art direction, creative strategy and design; producing a visual identity and logo type treatment, bespoke illustration, website, stationary and promotional printed matter. The initial project has evolved into an ongoing collaboration.
