Based on the E65 envelope format, Aalto University Management's Stationery stands out in a prestigious way from the standard ISO 216 format.

Assignment

One of the basic elements of Aalto University's visual identity is the ISO 216 paper format. This means every printed application of the visual identity should follow the international A and B paper size standard.

The assignment was to design a stationery for the management of Aalto University that would stand out from other applications as an elegant entity. 

 

Solution

By breaking the paper format guidelines and setting the basic format to fit the C65 envelope gave a distinctive look to the stationery. For the colour theme only three basic colours, red, blue and yellow, were whosen to be used, with grey as an exception, used in the condolence envelope and card. 

The Aalto University's emblem was toned down by embossing it to the envelope and the letterhead.

The chosen format, simple but strong colour scheme and toned down usage of the emblem gave the stationery an elegant look.

Aalto University management's stationery was designed together with Sasu Haanpää.
