Two vintage-looking projects serve as book-ends for a charming little thing this week, with work from Porto, Buenos Aires, and Vancouver.

Barbearia Porto by Oscar Maia

Barbearia Porto by Oscar Maia

Barbearia Porto is a family-owned barbershop in Porto, Portugal, in business since 1946, offering haircuts, tattoos, apparel, and liquor. In other words, a hell of a Saturday night. The identity by local designer Oscar Maia is full-on and unapologetically vintage which means there is nothing necessarily original about it but it looks damn great. The typography is handled perfectly and evokes the old-timey vibe of a classic barbershop almost too successfully. The “services” sheet alone is pure gold. See full project

Happy Rabbit by Un Barco

Happy Rabbit by Un Barco

Happy Rabbit is a boutique apparel line for kids based in Argentina. Their identity by Buenos Aires-based Un Barco — whose work looks like the visualization of a Damien Rice song — features a charming carrot with what could be interpreted as either bunny ears or a bow tied on top. Either way, it’s totally adorable. I wish the typography were a little better or at least more consistent in weight with the icon. Nonetheless, in all the fluffy applications, the logo works great and makes all of Happy Rabbit’s items look more huggable than they already are. See full project

The Glamoury by Glasfurd and Walker

The Glamoury by Glasfurd and Walker

The Glamoury is a hairdo and make-up salon in Vancouver, Canada, with, well, a fairly glamorous approach and a salon that looks straight out of the classical Hollywood cinema era. Designed by local firm Glasfurd and Walker, the identity revolves around a custom art deco-ish typeface with delicate contrast in its thicks and thins that looks great in gold against the deep green backgrounds. A monogram “G” embedded in a diamond-slash-pill device provides some visual richness to otherwise minimal applications. Glamorous to a G. See full project
