The architectural firm Burkhalter Sumi Architekten is now Oxid Architektur. The newly named firm is led by Yves Schihin and Urs Rinklef, long-term partners at Burkhalter Sumi. Bivgrafik worked with copywriter Florian Stenschke in the name-finding process and designed Oxid’s new visual identity, including its website.

The firm’s name forms the geometrical basis for the graphic elements. In combination with the colour palette used in its structure, it engenders a clear yet generous formal interplay between the various graphic products. The concept is supplemented by the two-part wordmark, which arcs across each different format.
