The Salt Lake City chapter of AIGA welcomed Allison Williams, of Design MW, as a guest speaker. To inform local audiences about the event, Hint was commissioned to co-design posters with Design MW.
The Salt Lake City chapter of AIGA, the professional association for design, puts on the annual 100 Show, a prestigious juried competition where the year’s best design is honored and showcased at a gala. Traditionally a local studio is asked to design the identity system for the gala each year.
The Salt Lake City chapter approached Hint to design the 2009 AIGA 100 Show identity which included a logo and book representing the top 100 projects. Hint’s team used unique typographical effects to create an aesthetically interesting booklet. Local press, Mandate Press, produced the covers with unique printing techniques. A special edition poster acted as the dust jacket and a discovery element.
The art of scent 1889-2012 is the first major exhibition to recognize scent as a major medium of artistic creation and was featured at the Museum of Arts and Design. To match the minimally clean installation, designed by the architectural firm Diller, Scofidio + Renfro, Hint created a limited edition coffret box featuring eleven of the works exhibited in the inaugural show of the MAD Department of Olfactory Art curated by Chandler Burr. Each of the eleven scents are contained in glass vials and accompanied by a soft cover book with essays of each piece.
