Entry Description: Simple not bland – Adopting a simple approach goes beyond the pure visual. It requires a mindset that focuses on the core of a brand. Leading to design that expresses a brand’s true essence. Tandem Design's self-promotion campaign was based on it's Inform–Create–Express process, in which a clear understanding of a brand's objectives and opportunities is uncovered to develop insight to deliver to the most effective design solutions to align with the business strategies of its clients. The promotional piece used a typographic approach with bold cut-out elements that transform the headline from a plain white to a visually appealing expression. The mailer is also a poster, which reveals a message reflecting the founders' design philosophy of 'Simple not bland'. The result was to clearly communicate Tandem Design's methodology while demonstrating its design philosophy to potential clients.
