Method is happy to announce that we received the Interactive Media Awards Best in Class award in the category of ‘Architecture & Interior Design,’ for our work with NBBJ on their website redesign and launch!
The Best in Class award is the highest honor in the IMA Awards and represents the very best in planning, execution, and overall professionalism. Working with our client, NBBJ, a successful international architecture firm, we helped re-envision their brand and identity, resulting in a new, strong online presence. Method collaborated with NBBJ to implement an effective digital strategy to effectively communicate the firm’s architectural expertise. With a clean and sharp design custom-tailored to displaying NBBJ’s portfolio, we envisioned and designed a visually stimulating layout to convey NBBJ’s work.
We enjoyed working with NBBJ to launch a brand new platform to help with workflow, providing easily accessible information to clients and communicating brand vision and strengths.

We’re very happy to announce that our brand refresh for SoftKinetic received distinction at the 2012 Rebrand 100 Global Awards. The awards recognize work with an attention to strategy and aesthetic, leading to effective brand transformation. We worked with SoftKinetic to help revitalize their brand, giving them an all new brandmark and overall identity.
SoftKinetic is a leading gesture recognition technology company. In 2011, they were launching a new gesture-based, depth and dimensional sensing image platform to their product offering. Their brand identity had to align with this new offering.
When developing SoftKinetic’s refreshed identity, Method looked to new metaphors for gesture, moving away from the accepted principle of the human form. Instead, we aimed to create an identity that invited gesture and responded to it.
The resulting identity is a wordmark connected by texture and frame. Used together, they are able to indicate gesture statically. We integrated the idea of kinetics through an optical pattern that was malleable and gave the impression of motion and interaction to express the brand. Applied globally, the new SoftKinetic brand identity represents their offering and company core.
The juries for the IxDA Awards, met in New York City at the Method Studios to deliberate over this year’s extensive and impressive catalogue of entries. They have shortlisted a set of finalists, with the winners to be declared at the Interaction 12 Conference, this week in Dublin, Ireland
Our work with Teaching Channel has been selected as finalists and is currently in competition at Interaction 12. You can still help us win ‘People’s Choice’ by voting here! Voting closes tomorrow at 12pm GMT, so please help spread the word!
