Summer is in full swing here at Briefbox, and despite the combination of beautiful weather and an easing of lockdown restrictions, it's been great to see our talented students still dedicating their free time to creating some beautiful responses to our portfolio-strengthening brief sets.
Throughout July, our community members have taken a deep dive into a selection of briefs both new and old, and have once again proved that there will always be new ways to capture our attention through a combination of stunning visuals and carefully-considered case studies.
Now enough of the small talk! Let's explore this month's round-up of some of our favourite submissions from Briefbox students all around the world:
Chillin Frozen Yoghurt Packaging by Tacie Hoffman
Contrasting a vibrant colour palette and playful illustrations against a pitch-black background, Tacie ensures that her brand identity for a range of vegan yoghurt is always in full focus for their consumers.
We particularly love how she's managed to keep her brand identity looking refined and professional while still giving it a splash of personality - not an easy thing to do but Tacie has nailed it first try - keep it up!

Klaver Bank UI Concepts by Adam Cayir
The digital banking industry is a sector typically oversaturated with dark and brooding user interfaces, but Adam's response to our Digital and UI Brief Set is a breath of fresh air, focusing instead on a light and professional design system that allows a customer to read their financial data without any aesthetic distractions.
A really mature and well-considered approach here Adam!

Tropicalia Homepage Design by Nurul Ilma
Nurul's stunning response to our Killer Homepages Brief Set effortlessly captures the vibrance and energy of a music, food and arts festival. Her tropical illustrations frame the main content of the site, and almost seem to invite the reader to take a step forward into the festival experience.
Some really beautiful work here Nurul, and we really can't wait to see what you send over to us next!

Orinoco Coffee Branding and Packaging by James Halliday
Completed as part of our Food & Drink Packaging Brief Set, James' almost nautical colour palette for Orinoco coffee suggests a brand well-travelled and allows the colour assigned to each flavour to take centre stage, giving a potential buyer the chance to really imagine the notes of each coffee's unique flavouring.
A really great example of how a simplified parent brand can allow for room for expansion down the line. Keep them coming James!

Common Unity Branding by Arnaud Dirckx
Arnaud's approach to our latest brief set perfectly captures a sense of the 'underground'. Almost industrial in its execution, Arnaud's brand system for Common Unity entices those who are keen to break away from the mainstream and become part of a subculture that is kept deliberately hidden from the uninitiated.
Be sure to keep your eye out for more of his entries over the next few months!

High-End Fashion Retailer Homepage by Zayan Ezziani
Slick in structure and unburdened by colour, Zayan Ezziani's homepage design for a high-end digital storefront instead focuses on putting the end product directly in front of a viewer's eyes from the offset.
We love the clear sense of hierarchy established throughout the design, with prominent calls-to-action occupying the greatest amount of space. A really well-thought-out execution from Zayan!
