Dimensions of debate

Art direction and visual identity for a product design studio.

Argument is a young, Berlin-based venture that proposes a new perspective on design, understanding its collection of furniture as something discursive where objects ‘become arguments’ in themselves.

bus.group provided design and art direction to Argument, developing a contemporary identity for use across formats. A multimodal website was produced to house the launch collection, developed with full integration of shop functionality.

Wrap up your bruk

CGI and creative direction for a music label’s inaugural release.

"BRUK is a new platform for fresh variations on the soundsystem ethic, developed as an artist-focused endeavour and geared towards producers with range, depth and ingenuity in their sound." Beside the chopping first statement from Josh Thompson's FFT alias, bus.group produced abstracted imagery to cover the sleeve in its own sheathed visual.
