Neda Mamo designed the new visual identity of the AI scanning app for the blind: Supersense, but how does one design a visual world for the blind?

Supersense came to us to collaborate on rebranding their visual identity. We were confused about the target audience first, but they quickly reminded us that blindness is not a singular experience, it has different types and degrees.

This fact made it clear that designing visuals for the app required additional research on the diversity within the experiences of the blind. Each text, pattern and composition had to be designed with additional awareness on the contrast of colours in order to be understandable.

We agreed together that Neda, with her colourful and dynamic style, was the perfect creative to take on this job. Neda was meticulous in her research and creative process, and her designs ended to be both stunning and inclusive.

Designed in partnership with ASUS and ROG for the anniversary of our illustration gallery famstore°, Ozmoz (Osmosis) features the work of 23 artists.

Ozmoz, is a brand-new interactive exhibition experience that transfers you from the world of illustration to the world of gaming. It is an audiovisual labyrinth where 23 illustrations from famstore°s new collection are turned into 3D rooms. Participants must discover a way out from each room while exploring the colourful worlds that they enter.

This technically and creatively challenging project emerged from our contemplations on how we can reflect the culture of illustration in a way that challenges our visual perceptions. Ozmoz aims to revive/restore the feeling of enchantment we get from a profound engagement with art, using the contemporary tools of our age.
