Last night Icon enjoyed a fabulous night at the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff to watch the Welsh Varsity rugby match finale 2013. Once again it was great to see our identity featured across various merchandise, including programmes and t-shirts as well as on the big screens. The stadium was a sea of red and green as thousands of students descended upon the stadium to support their team.
We were pleased to witness Swansea’s magnificent second-half comeback, resulting in them triumphantly beating Cardiff 21-13. A great night was had by all and we look forward to next year’s match!

Everyday we get enough energy from the sun to power our planet for 27 years. Specific, a leading research group led by Swansea University and Tata Steel, aim to turn buildings into power stations by capturing solar energy and regenerating this energy as power. Icon created the brand identity for Specific, successive work has included large scale graphics, exhibition walls and a series of information panels.
Our most recent project for Specific was vehicle livery design for their environmentally-friendly Kangoo Van, which is the most economical in the market sector.
3000 miles is a long, long way to travel for a cup of coffee. But when the branding is as lovely/ inspirational/charming as this, it almost seems like a plausible reason to make the journey across the pond.
For 2013, Caribou Coffee have refocused, revamped and evolved their brand presence. The campaign, created by Minneapolis Agency Colle+McVoy includes a television spots, in-store posters, 3D billboards and packaging branding all featuring inspirational quotes and phrases. These “life-isms” encourage consumers to think of coffee as more than just a daily routine, but a wholesome experience which fuels their passions and ways of thinking.
We love how a routine cup of coffee is suddenly transformed into a “meaningful” activity, you are almost seized from everyday normality and reminded to appreciate and live life to the full. Which supports their longstanding tagline “Life is short. Stay awake for it.”
There is nothing better than a wonderfully optimistic and meaningful brand vision except one where the design is executed so beautifully. If you happen to visit a Caribou Coffee please bring us back a coffee cup, we don’t care if its empty.
