Buensalido+Architects brand identity

Started in 2006, Buensalido+Architects is an architectural, interior, and urban design laboratory in Makati City, Philippines.

The firm’s philosophy is inspired by the “Random Responses” of life. “Life is filled with an endless array of disparate events and elements, and we perpetually try to make sense of it by piecing everything together.”

Random Responses: order from disorder; extreme versatility; radical solutions guided by human insights and enabled by technical know- how. However you describe the Buensalido+Architects approach to urban planning, interior design, and architecture, the results are spectacular, but always grounded in reality.

We designed B+A’s new brand identity and website around the same principle, and Random Responses worked for us, too. Drawing inspiration from Philippine costumes and festivals, we used multicolored banderitas as a key design element.

B+A’s new website not only looks snazzy, but it’s an online portfolio with full screen images and a prominent contact section. Content is easily updated via custom CMS, and the responsive layout adapts itself to screen size, so everything works for mobile, tablet, and desktop users alike.

Stationery completes the look: clean and simple, but in an eye-catching pink.

  1. This is interesting… just a few minutes earlier I was looking into this: http://anagrama.com/portafolio/14-estudio-habitat

    Could be coincidence… but the multicolored banderitas concept looks similar to me. I am not blaming anyone of plagiarism. Just thought it would be interesting to compare. What is also interesting is that both concepts are for architecture firms. In any case, I really like the approach presented here.
