Winter Park Library and Events Center

Sited on the Northwest corner of Martin Luther King, Jr. Park, this new civic and cultural hub embodies the values of the park’s namesake and is envisioned as a space for community empowerment and edification. As part of an extensive revitalization of the park, the new hub is in harmony with the unique tropical ecology of the site and is conceived as a micro-village of three pavilions, each of different scale and function but which share a common formal language. The village is comprised of a new two-story library, an event center with rooftop terrace, as well as a new welcome portico that ushers users from the street and unifies the three structures. Chad Baumer Guided by biophilic design principles, all three pavilions--compo... More

Weston Family Learning Centre

The Weston Family Learning Centre provides educational space at the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) for people of all ages to engage with and learn about art. Entro developed a new brand identity, fundraising brochure, and a signage and wayfinding program for the Centre.   The logo itself was rendered in the form of a drawing, with sketch lines around the words “learning centre.” The image evokes sketchbooks and the kind of conceptual play that is the beginning of all great creative projects.   For the signage and wayfinding system, we chose large, colourful letters, applied as vinyl film directly to the surface of walls.

MAX Offices Tel Aviv

We worked together with Max’s marketing team and D.S. Blay Architects to create the language and design for their 7-floor office complex. Our goal was to create a different and innovative design for each of the floors based on the company’s branding book language. We chose a material for each floor symbolizing the type of work of each department. For example, for the HR department we utilized fabric, which symbolizes human connection. We decorated meeting rooms, phone booths, a large cafeteria, and incorporated motion graphics on the first floor to give a first impression of innovation and technology. In summary, seven floors of cutting edge, fun and inspiring environmental graphic design.  Photography: Uzi Porat More

Graphic designers put their talents to the design of a bold new office building in Amsterdam

As much logo as building, this office building located on an Amsterdam square was conceived by graphic designers Thonik. In additional to the striking ‘zebra’ like patterns of vertical and horizontal lines, the façade registers a bold staircase.

The building is however a mere 8 meters in depth.
