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.
