Carlos Mensil

Visual Artist

Identity / Web

Carlos Mensil is a Portuguese visual artist based in Porto who chose us to develop his visual identity and website, after working with us on his masters final book. 
 
Carlos has a minimal look on his work and the visual communication should not overshadow the art pieces, so we worked on a clean and sober identity.
 
Mensil enjoys playing with visual perception so we kept that characteristic through a digital representation of a lined sheet of paper for the business card, which is deeply connected to his series of pieces painted on stainless steel that also simulated it.
 
Overall, Carlos wanted us to design a minimal and timeless identity, with some subtle touches here and there, and we couldn't be happier with the final result.

I asked Black Unicorns to think about my identity as a visual artist. It took a lot more time than in the first project (my master thesis book) due to the complexity of this one, so each meeting was extremely important to refine every detail and to personalize the identity. I don't think I need to add anything more as the result speaks for itself.
