Logo and visual identity for Athfield Architects Limited

client: Athfield Architects

The field of letterforms on white space is a typographic response to the architecture practice, both physically and philosophically.

Shown here are drawings of the thought process during concept and development back in 2008, a working drawing for the wayfinding signage system, an installation of letters, A Hillside Intervention, and the latest development, a new site by Sons & Co, launched July 2016.

Set in five weights of Verlag, by Hoefler and Frere-Jones
