Blank space

Just love the fantastic white on magenta / red BLANK studio space. Neat-o interior layout with space to spare – light and the right amount of brightly colored chairs.

Meticously decorated around the brand name (blank) – which means empty – and expressed with lots of white ’empty’ artifacts. Smart!

View BLANK portfolio (and nice website placeholder).

BLANK #fbad9a

While waiting for her new website to go online – Alexandra Mendes aka BLANK – a design thinking (for graphic minds) independent design consultancy to both clients and design agencies has opted for a one-page placeholder with animated thumbnails of her past work and studio artefacts. Most unusual base color: #fbad9a – an opaque ‘flesh’ tone and tints with black accent.

Blank makes tailored projects. Experimentation is the basic structure of her work. Always looking for answers in the most improbable places. They must be there… Somewhere!

Blank Roast

First and foremost, Blank Roast is an ecological and accredited coffee manufacturer based in Germany. Who can pass up on a good cup of coffee in the morning?

Secondly, luv their website. It’s just the right balance of information between the eye grabbing visuals based on their packaging. With the nice little iconic system leading to the different roasts, viewers receive pertinent information.

Simple, minimalist, beautiful.

Dieter Rams interview

>Dieter Rams interviewed by Gary Hustwit, an excerpt (worth reading) from Helvetica/Objectified/Urbanized: The Complete Interviews as published by Fast Company.


Dieter Ram design philosophy in 10 points:

Good design is innovative.
Good design must be useful.
Good design is aesthetic design.
Good design makes a product understandable.
Good design is honest.
Good design is unobtrusive.
Good design is long-lasting.
Good design is consistent in every detail.
Good design is environmentally friendly.
And last but not least, good design is as little design as possible.


This reference book – is a must in your library: Less and More. The Design Ethos of Dieter Rams. A new re-edition can be pre-ordered.

Hence, where the Less is more quote and design principle comes from. Never forget how much we owe this creative giant.

Pacific Light

Oil, water, movement, music = Pacific Light – which uses digital photography + motion graphics. A project by Ruslan Khasanov – a Russian born graphic designer.

Music by Boris Blank.


And as he says: Everything has beauty!

Superb video montage.

Wolf & Son

A new branding project created for Wolf & Son, a new label of men’s footwear proudly enhanced by a junior line. The moodboard pictures are masculine and sustain the craft and products.

A simple grid – effective website + classic identity. And that junior line shoes, rock!


Blank – is a design studio located in Porto / PT – worked closely with the label to write its brand story and design its global visual communication.
