Volta wanted a bold modern identity that reflected their values / craft as a leading concept design studio. This lead to the creation of a logo and a mark that can be used side by side or as a signature on their work. Playing with the name, and to enforce the message, there's a lightning bolt hidden in the logo.
The cards use a series of cropped concept paintings that have been enlarged to focus on the textures and craft of the artists rather than show a literal image. The resulting pixelation of the images reflects the fact that most of their work is screen based.
A breakdown of the design process can be found on my blog.
