featured STORIES


CUSTOM MADE INDIAN LUXURY TYPE
As part of Sawari's repertoire of visual languages for Indian luxury visual design, we developed a series of 'typograms'. Our project 'typogram' explores typeface development as part of a sequence of monograms to facilitate the development of selected alphabets as part of Sawari's brand design typekit.

TYPOGRAMS FOR TROPICAL LUXURY
Sawari worked with a chain of luxury villas in tropical Bali, Bangkok and Goa. We developed a unique visual story and evolved a unique typogram system for the projects. The type style was evolved based on the aerial topography of the villas

We create ECLECTIC design stories to transport brands across time, place and people

“If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten.”
