AWWWARDS Honorable Mention – Intentionallies web design

February 14, 2018

AWWWARDS Honorable Mention

We are proud to announce that our design for the website for Intentionallies was awarded with an “Honorable Mention” by the coveted web design award AWWWARDS.

AWWWARDS
award : Honorable Mention
project name : Intentionallies – web design

www.intentionallies.co.jp

 

AWWWARDS recognizes and awards exceptional talent among web designers, developers, and agencies from all over the world, and offers a platform where digital design experts can inspire and share knowledge with each other.

We, artless Inc., had the pleasure of designing the renewed website for the architecture label Intentionallies. Our design initiated with an idea of having a website that can only represent Intentionallies. On top of the conventional way of displaying works with its titles and image thumbnails, we created their own filtering tool called ’tags’, which was inspired from ‘design codes’ that Intentionallies create for each project. Not just the names of clients or buildings, we utilized the very own words from Intentionallies and made them into the central design element of the website. The design is made bold and daring, yet minimal and professional, to represent an architecture label that has a history of more than 20 years.

AWWWARDS 2018
award : Honorable Mention
project name : Intentionallies – web design

www.intentionallies.co.jp

 

AWWWARDSは、グローバルに活動するデジタルデザインのエキスパートがアイディアを見つけ、知識を与え合い、互いに評価し合う場を実現するべく、世界中のwebデザイナー、デベロッパー、エージェンシーの中から才能を見出し、活動の一環として毎年アワードを開催しています。

artless Inc.が手がけたのは鄭秀和氏が率いる建築レーベル Intentionallies のwebデザインで、Intentionallies だからこそできる新しいポートフォリオサイトの仕組みを考えました。従来のポートフォリオサイトに見るような画像、プロジェクトタイトルの一覧に加え、閲覧モード「タグ」を追加。Intentionallies が設計時に各プロジェクトに設ける「デザインコード」から着想を得た、独自の方法でプロジェクトをフィルタリングできる仕組みです。クライアント名や建物名とは異なる、Intentionallies 自身の言葉をデザインの大きな要素とし、大胆でありながらも、設立から20年以上経つ建築レーベルに合うようなミニマルでプロフェッショナルな空気感を大事にしました。

DFA Design for Asia Awards 2017 Merit Award

November 27, 2017

artless craft tea & coffee
identity + branding + interior design

 

Print

 

artless Inc. is proud to announce that our branding project for artless craft tea and coffee was honored with the Merit Award from DFA Design for Asia Awards 2017, one of the most coveted design awards in Asia.

The DFA Awards is an internationally recognized program launched in 2003 by the Hong Kong Design Centre with the aim of cementing Hong Kong’s role as the epicenter of design in Asia. With a focus on the ever-expanding design industry in Asia, the DFA Award recognizes and celebrates exemplary designs with an Asian perspective. With over a thousand entries from more than 23 countries across the globe, the DFA Awards has a strong international influence in Asia. The awards ceremony will take place on December 6th in Hong Kong, and the winning works will be exhibited during “IDFA Awards Exhibition at DesignInspire” at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre for three days from December 7th to the 9th.

The Japanese concepts of “wabi-sabi” and “incomplete beauty”, originating from the “sado (tea ceremony)” culture are hard to come by in daily life. artless craft tea & coffee is a tea and coffee stand with the design concept “chashitsu (tea room)”, where the notions of “sado” is expressed through a modern sensibility.

Created and managed by creative agency artless Inc., every aspect of the shop, including spatial design, product design, and graphic design, as well as menu development, is infused with notions inherent in “sado” and expressed through a modern vocabulary to create a “chashitsu” that synthesizes tradition with modernity.

As part of the mission to turn the space into a cultural hub, the shop also includes an art gallery where up-and-coming artists can exhibit their work. The space functions as a place where like-minded creatives can meet and share ideas.

As a space that expresses traditional Japanese culture through a modern aesthetic, the shop has become popular with inbound visitors from around the world, as well as young people who are interested in traditional culture.

DFA Awards 2017 Merit Award – Hotel Kanra Kyoto

November 17, 2017

DFA Design for Asia Awards 2017 Merit Award
v.i. + sign design for hotel kanra kyoto

artless Inc. is proud to announce that our branding project for ‘hotel kanra kyoto’ was honored with the Merit Award from DFA Design for Asia Awards 2017, one of the most coveted design awards in Asia.

The DFA Awards is an internationally recognized program launched in 2003 by the Hong Kong Design Centre with the aim of cementing Hong Kong’s role as the epicenter of design in Asia. With a focus on the ever-expanding design industry in Asia, the DFA Award recognizes and celebrates exemplary designs with an Asian perspective. Design projects are judged on four criteria; overall excellence, use of technology, impact in Asia, and commercial and societal success. With over a thousand entries from more than 23 countries across the globe, the DFA Awards has a strong international influence in Asia. The awards ceremony will take place on December 6th in Hong Kong, and the winning works will be exhibited during “IDFA Awards Exhibition at DesignInspire” at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre for three days from December 7th to the 9th.

With the reopening of ‘hotel kanra kyoto’ in October 2016, artless Inc. was in charge of creating the visual identity as well as the signage system of the hotel.
The design tenet for this project was ‘Kirei-sabi’, an aesthetic sense and philosophy of Kyoto/Japan, which was realized through the logotype, typography, pictograms, and the tastefully weathered color scheme of coal black and copper red that were used in the signage and print materials.
While elements of traditional Japanese culture are present in all levels of the design, to meet demands of a growing inbound market in Kyoto, all written materials are in both Japanese and English. Our goal for this project was to build a new brand image of ‘hotel kanra kyoto’ that is international in scope with a Japanese essence.
