Michael McManus Architects undertake projects across the state of Victoria.
My solution highlights their forward-thinking approach through an unexpected, earthy colour palette, which was chosen to provide contrast with the high-end nature of the work. The hues capture a snapshot of many of their projects: deep green for the landscape, yellow for sunlight, grey as breathing space and burnt orange for brick.
Delicate linework provides the visual system with further depth, abstractly representing the ‘MM’ of Michael McManus and ‘A’ of Architects. Their structured nature adds an instantly familiar architectural element to the identity, while the unconventional typography and palette challenge the status quo.
