Alongside working on our exciting new brand refresh, spotlighting exceptional work from within the Briefbox community and sitting down with some of the creative industry's most promising talent, we've spent the start of Autumn taking a look through your amazing responses to our portfolio-strengthening brief sets.

From punchy brand identities and alluring typographic posters to abstract pattern design and clean UI concepts, join us as we take a look through some our favourite submissions from talented graphic designers and illustrators in the Briefbox community sent over this September.

Heard Studios Brand Identity by Jordan Webb

Jordan Webb's full brand identity for Heard Studios, completed as part of our How to Create Brand Case Studies course, cuts through the noise and instantly captures the attention of the target audience through Jordan's use of a vibrant colour palette, distorted typography and confident messaging.

We love the sheer variety of brand assets Jordan has created, with so many different elements including illustrated badges, business cards and typographic posters all coming together to form one, cohesive brand.

Absolutely killer work Jordan!

Peep Sunglasses Brand Identity by Adam Wright

Moving away from any obvious eyewear imagery, Adam Wright's entry for Peep Sunglasses, part of our Brand & Identity Brief Set, focuses instead on capturing the viewers' interest with pattern of abstract illustrations all loosely based around the physical form of the glasses themselves.

We love how different this approach is from others we've seen, even down the decision to use a more muted colour palette while still allowing the brand to appear bold and vibrant.

Amazing work Adam!

Playfully Serious Poster Concept by Kristina Roll

Kristina Roll's Playfully Serious poster concept for our Custom Lettering Brief Set is a minimal but effective testament to the beauty and practical benefits of using custom lettering when creating typographic posters.

With each letterform complementing the next, there's quite literally a playfulness among the typography as each character seems to dance itself from the page.

We're excited to see what's next Kristina!

Common Unity Website UI by Matteo Mangano

Matteo's approach to Common Unity's brief in our Branding for the Music Industry Brief Set leads with a striking red identity that instantly draws the audience's eye.

We really like Matteo's website UI concept that brings the Common Unity into the digital space that clearly considers best user experience practice, leading with the most important aspect of any music marketplace, the music itself.

Great work Matteo!

Peep Sunglasses Brand Identity and Packaging by Caitlin Whittle

Joyous, playful and oh-so-60's, Caitlin Whittle's approach to the Peep Sunglasses brief in our Brand & Identity Brief Set is the perfect visual representation of the summer season.

A bright, pastel colour palette evokes a very retro-inspired look across the entire selection of brand materials, and we love way the sunglasses pattern on both the glasses case and tote bag gives the feeling of a brand in motion.

Really captivating work here Caitlin!

flyBologna Website UI Concept by James Payne

Clean in style and practical in execution, James' approach to the second brief in our Quick UI Challenges Brief Set presents a UI concept for a booking page for a major airline.

Doing away with any unnecessary text, James utilises his great hierarchy and layout skills to focus the reader's eye on the most important information on the page, ensuring a seamless user experience throughout.

We particularly love the informative graphics that give an instant overview to the booking without overloading the user with too much information - good stuff James!
