Clarges Mayfair, British Land
When British Land initiated their first residential project they commissioned Micha Weidmann Studio to create the identity and marketing collateral for Clarges Mayfair, an exclusive luxury development overlooking Green Park on Piccadilly. They created an enduring marque, which expands into an identity with patterns for engravings, building facades, book covers and invitations. Alongside the marketing collateral and online appearance, Micha Weidmann Studio planned the campaign, produced and art directed the film and photography, which introduced the exceptional development to prospective buyers. The launch of Clarges Mayfair set a new benchmark for real estate in London by setting new records for prices in Mayfair.

The Donum Estate, California
The Donum Estate required a refined identity for it’s vineyard and sculpture park in Sonoma, California. For over a year the studio photographed the sculptures throughout the seasons conditions. This photography identity was then merged with tactile print materials and classic typography to roll out the holistic brand.
In 2007 when Dezeen was a first-of-its-kinds
design blog, they wanted to become an iconic
online design magazine. A distinct design
identity was created with a flexible typographic
system which allowed the brand to grow
organically. In 2016, the studio was then re-commissioned to design the Dezeen website
to help them become the world’s most
influential design magazine, reaching 50 million visitors a year. The brand structure created
enabled them to seamlessly adapt to new
ventures in print and digital, such as the launch
of the watch store, job site and collaborations with Adidas and MINI. In 2018 they helped them
launch the Dezeen Awards. More than a decade
of work with Dezeen had established them as a
leading influence in the design community.
Due to its global audience, it seemed like
a natural step to launch the Dezeen Awards
with an exciting identity and campaign. Micha
Weidmann Studio created a series of movies
with Leon Chew that were inspired by the Tate Modern’s industrial architecture, the films guided the audience through four hours of the awards. The campaign, in the run-up to the awards ceremony hosted by Sir Lenny Henry, drew over 3500 entries from over 90 countries.
