Air Inuit is a regional airline that provides an essential passenger, charter, cargo and emergency air transport services throughout northern Quebec and destinations across Canada. The airline began operations in 1978 and is wholly owned by the Inuit people. The redesign of the brand identity of Air Inuit was created by Montreal based FEED in collaboration with brand consultant Marc-André Chaput. Check out the old logo here.
The aim was to develop the new positioning of the carrier and review all components of its brand identity in the context of a larger project to modernise the company. One of the first things people will see is the orange and black bilingual logo which is set in Inuktitut and Roman letters. The logo is quite straightforward but standout because of the orange script.
The new identity of Air Inuit brand is a contemporary interpretation of the rich Inuit cultural heritage and bold new vision. Feed studio’s own illustrator Stéphane Poirier, created the pattern of geese, to reflect the Inuit’s love and respect of nature and the abundant wildlife.
In addition, FEED worked hand in hand with French typeface designer Jean-Baptiste Levée to create the exclusive typeface called Air Inuit Sans. The corporate font is one of a few typefaces in the world that is able to rite the Inuktitut language.

Ueli is a master of the ancient Swiss folk art of papercutting called “Scherenschnitt” in German. Instead of taking beautiful pictures of chocolate which are at the end Photoshoped he took his scissors and a cut out typical swiss motives such as cows, trees and motives in addition to the Maison Cailler building. The end result is a beautiful paper cut packaging design that definitely pops out from the shelf, I guess thats why I found it back in Geneva airport.

Kannada is an MA project by Divya Venkatesh attempting to provide typographic standards (relating specifically to letterform anatomy) for the Kannada script. It has been inspired by similar work done for the Devanagari script by Indian type experts: Mahindra Patel, S.V Bhagwat, and Bapurao Naik. As well as offering a means of identifying constituting letter parts, this book also offers a brief history into the evolution of the Kannada script, and how it functions structurally.

Over the Christmas holidays I traveled to Ethiopia which is located in the Horn of Africa. Whilst visiting the tribes of the Omo Valley in the south-west of the country, we past through dozens of medium to small towns and villages. It was amazing to see that the digital printing age hasn’t really arrive into this part of the country. Most shop, street signs or adverts were were still hand painted. Most of you most probably know that India is still big on Hand painted signs such as these. One of the characteristics of the Ethiopian hand drawn signs is off course the Ge’ez script or Amharic language, which is the second-most spoken Semitic language in the world after Arabic.
