New Studio Workspace
It’s been a good few weeks since we moved to Valletta…
Up till now we had only shown you the outside of the studio
so here’s how our workspace looks at the moment!
Pattern System for camilleriparismode
camilleriparismode is a century-old family business,
which started off trading quality fabrics. Today,
the company has evolved and expanded in diverse
sectors that include interiors, home accessories,
and bridal wear. To amalgamate the classical heritage
with its contemporary evolvement into one identity
we created a series of patterns derived from fabric motifs.
Online Campaign Workshop
We attended a very insightful online campaign workshop
last weekend in Brussels, where lots of diverse strategies
were shared and new creative connections established.
On-going Projects at the Studio

Dutch Design Week Trip 2013
Our Dutch Design Week trip in Eindhoven was surely a memorable one.
During our stay we visited countless exhibits, which were mostly exceptional
in presentation but most of all had thorough creative process. This could
be seen mainly at the Dutch Academy Eindhoven Graduation Show, Klokgebouw,
and the TAC. It is surely a recommended trip to all and not just designers.

‘On Holiday’ 22-29 October 2013
We will be abroad from the 22 till the 29 October
to re-energise and visit the Dutch Design Week.
Light up my House
Signage is always a project opportunity we gladly welcome.
Recently we took care of the exhibition identity & signage
for Light up my House, an interactive art installation held
at the Upper Barrakka Gardens – Valletta. An array of equations
and symbols were designed to convey the amount of pedal power
and time needed to start a home appliance.
Projekte is a German-Maltese planning & development
company for sports stadiums and industrial lighting.
The division of the letter ‘Os’ in the logotype
is symbolic of the two main specialisations within
the company, Sports and Industrial. Simultaneously,
it also emphasises the word ‘Pro’ within the name.
This minimal typographic alteration was enough
to establish an iconographic form that was utilised
on various printed material.
Bright colours and bold typographic elements were key in giving
this identity a modern and dynamic design. Meanwhile, the ruler
navigation menu on the website indicates the precision
and attention to detail required by both sports professionals
and medical professionals.

Valletta – Then & Now
2point3 in collaboration with interior designer Luisa Diacono,
developed an identity for the new Valletta Local Council
premises. The letter ‘V’ logotype, which stands for ‘Valletta’,
embraces the past and present of the city in a versatile
and contemporary way. Unfortunately due to unknown
circumstances this identity was never realised.
Located in the seaside village of Mellieħa, Commando is a restaurant
housed within a 300-year old stone building. Commando remains
a family-owned business with its original purpose in the 1930’s
was to serve humble meals to Royal Marine Commandos who were
stationed at the nearby camp at Għadira Bay. 2point3 was entrusted
with the restaurant’s identity including the outdoor sign,
print material, and wall graphics.
Joseph Sant Portfolio
Joseph Sant is a Maltese model maker specialising in wood materials.
At present thanks to his involvement with world-renowned architect
firm Foster+Partners, he has refined his techniques with the latest
advancements in the model making industry. 2point3 compiled his
portfolio of work and designed this structural pattern cover
to represent his geometric notion.
MEME Malta Cards
MEME Malta is a Maltese inspirational blog that our studio
is keen on supporting. In collaboration with Studio Mothership,
we have designed these letterpress cards to promote the blog
and contact talented designers and artists. A very intricate
debossment on the back of the card was created to represent
MEME Malta’s logo, in the hope to identify the online blog
away from the usual local conventional boundaries.

Alternattiva Demokratika’s New Identity
After more than 20 years since the launch of Alternattiva Demokratika,
the Green Party of Malta felt the need to transform its identity to represent
progress and change. The new emblem designed by 2point3, consists of two
abstract shapes symbolising the radiating sun and sunflower. Two common
motifs used in European Greens’ politics. A comprehensive brand guideline
book was also devised to ensure recognisable and flexible communication
for digital and printed matter.

2point3 and AP+ Rebrand Malta Enterprise

foreign investment and industrial development in Malta.
A comprehensive and extensive brand manual was designed

indication of the corporate’s ability to provide powerful,
effective solutions to clients’ nowadays.
Periscopix Information Graphics
Periscopix is an English Marketing Agency mainly concentrating
on Pay Per Click campaigns. They describe themselves as
Mathematicians, Statisticians, Computer Scientists, and most
importantly Marketers. We were asked by Periscopix to design
information graphs showing various Pay Per Click solutions.
Grass Block Campaign
2point3 and Attard Bros Hard Landscaping Unit have
worked side by side on the Grass Block campaign.
The project for the concrete Grass Block was based
on an environmental concept that portrays the product
in a distinctive green block pattern that works well
on a variety of media, including animation.
The new Hotel Argento opened its door last summer with an
identity that aims to attract a new generation in the tourism
industry. The logotype has been designed in greys only to
resemble the word ‘Argento’ (an Italian term that symbolises
a delicate and accomodating atmosphere). All the hotel’s
materials have a modern, sleek, and elegant approach that
moves away from the habitual identities that we see locally.
This set of posters is a conceptual representation of the mood
each season brings with it. These self-initiated projects help
improve the graphical language in the simplest of forms while
upgrading the emotional impact on the viewer.
Laurence King’s 20 Years of Independent Publishing
We have created this straightforward poster which portrays the growth
of Laurence King’s 20 years of independent publishing through the
different scaling of 20 book spreads, each one bigger than the one
previously laid. Naturally the 20th spread is the largest.
The Rotor Guide is a user-friendly map, which we are developing.
Its aim is to make the wayfinding process more efficient and intriguing
by using transparent layers to categorise different points of interest.
A custom prototype was tested on Mdina, receiving very positive
feedback from users and AIG (Applied Information Group of London).
