Alexander Isley (West Redding, Ct.) created a new identity for Sweet Hospitality Group based on a system where each version was handcrafted from an ingredient you might find in a canapé. For the logo they created a stylized “S,” the elements of which can be used in a multitude of combinations and patterns. Next up is the design of the new Sweet Hospitality Group website, to be developed and launched this summer.

Base Design (New York) has opened Base Geneva, a merger between the ex-Base team members of StudioGVA and Base itself. The merger gave rise to a conceptual design project that examines Switzerland through a highly critical lens. The initiative, comprising provocative, rethought, iconic Swiss imagery, an interactive website, and a custom-made “neutral” typeface, launches a debate about what it means to challenge a country’s identity and, in doing so, its very reason for being.
