Voltalab Sound Studios Branding by Fieldwork

A new visual identity developed by Fieldwork for Voltalab Sound Studios.

The team of Fieldwork, a Manchester, UK based branding and graphic design firm was asked to develop a new visual identity for the Voltalab Sound Studios. The brand new recording studio is situated in the space where Cargo Studios and Suite 16 used to be. The studio is mainly focused on recording classic bands such as New Order, Joy Division, Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark, The Fall, Happy Mondays, and The Stone Roses. Inspired by the buildings rich heritage, Fieldwork’s creative team has created a visual language that captures the energy of the space. Their aim was to develop an authentic brand, which is bringing together old and new influences. Feel free and read more blow.

Flexibility was a key feature of the new visual identity. They used a wide variety of materials as well as different formats and processes like letterpress and screen printing. The stationery set includes letterheads, grid paper, complement slips, and letter pressed business cards in two colors. The simple branding guidelines inform on how to effectively implement the brand assets to all applications including print, web, and social media.
