artworks10

Now that the crazy election period is over, we would like to share with you the electoral campaign of the party Protovoulia and the mayor of Thessaloniki, Yianni Boutari. In this project we were given the opportunity to create a campaign that was “slightly” different from typical election campaigns! We want to thank Thessalonikis’ mayor and candidate for best mayor in the world (http://www.worldmayor.com/contest_2014/long-list-2014.html) for trusting us in this “daring” project.

There be Dragons in NY!

The Greek Monsters exhibition opens in Manhattan!
In a typically joyous and upbeat mood, the Cyclops, the Minotaur and more than twenty monsters from the Greek mythology, welcomed their first guests at the opening of “The Greek Monsters” exhibition at the Olympic Atrium of the Onassis Cultural Center in Manhattan, NYC.

_BEE7575_x740

Joining Beetroots’ beloved monsters, a new monster that was created especially for the occasion was unveiled: The dragon “Ladon”, the fearless guardian of the golden apples of the garden of the Hesperides was presented as a symbol of the human need to “advance” beyond ones’ secure past.

The exhibition is presented in collaboration with the Onassis Cultural Center at the Olympic Atrium (645 5th Ave New York) until July. Don’t forget to check out The Little Monsters program that is available for children of all ages.

http://www.beetroot.gr/ is updated!

The moment you have all been waiting for, has arrived!

It has almost been two years since we last updated our website but they were definitely two years of hard work and effort, which is finally online for you to discover!

1966067_838321506195000_7530030415997459584_o

Old collaborations but also new ones were formed throughout these two years. Projects such as the Greek Presidency of the European Council, the famous instant cold coffee: Frappé, the launching campaign of our beloved Onassis Cultural Center (a.k.a Stegi) but also every promotional material for the events held at Stegi, the archive of the poet C.P. Cavafy, google action figures for google developers, stories about home baked cookies but also self initiated projects such as eros (love) as seen through the eyes of our creative team…

The aforementioned are just some of the projects we’ve been working on for the past two years so we invite you to go online and check the rest of our work!

Beetroot is happy and the beet goes on…

More Light!!

FAUST_IM

 

A human heart. Veins forming an inscription: «Mehr licht».

Faust’s cry marks the human part that, more than any other, is connected to love.

As part of its flourishing collaboration with the Onassis Cultural Centre, Beetroot created the visual identity for one of the most anticipated performances of this season!

“A personal delving into the darkness of human Desire”

Using as a starting point this comment by the director of the new production of “Faust”, Michail Marmarinos, we created a key visual in which desire mutates the hero’s most vital organ.
Faust’s “heart” symbolises the unique condition of the human being who despite having virtually everything keeps craving for more and through a twisted “Darwinian” point of view mutates to succeed.

EROS by Beetroot

EROS_image_02

Your intentions transform you into a hero. You want to meet, to participate, to conquer. Your craving gives birth to a source of stamina you did not know that you possess. As pleasure floods your body, life becomes beautiful, fresh and worthy of your effort. You are not alone. You two, or more, become one. You become more.

Beetroot Design Group invites you to “eros”, its latest, exciting exhibition that celebrates the most basic reason that brings human together: sexual attraction and ultimately making love!

In the unforgiving routine of everyday life where human relationships are challenged, being sexually attracted to other human beings as well as desiring to make love just for the pleasure it brings, is presented through the eyes of Beetroot, as an independent and honest human practice that is important for our personal psychological balance.

It’s been a really exciting experience for beetroot presenting “The collective mind” at the Greek design panorama. One more time we had the chance to meet, learn and share. We are looking forward for the next new design conference, since the 10th design panorama 2013 was the last to occur.

GR2014EU_VISUAL_ID-06

Beetroot was commissioned to design the “Hellenic Presidency of the Council of the European Union” logo.
A sailboat in full sail is formed from the initials of the European Union (e.u.). The means by which the ancient peoples managed to contact and connect with each other, reminds us of the beginnings of the European people’s union as well as the fact that the present-day European citizens are sailing together towards a common future.
This symbol of transition and exploration is presented here as an allegory of the communication between European people and the need for a harmonious and productive cohabitation and collaboration, within certain space, in a shared journey to growth.

Think Feel

THINK_FEEL_01

A brain containing a phosphorescent heart (only visible in darkness): Beetroot celebrates mankind’s ability to create, as the result of the productive relationship between rational thinking and impulsiveness, wisdom and experimentation, technique and art, the  objective and the subjective.
The generation of culture emerges as the culmination of the eternal clash of science and instinct – man’s need to “understand” against the sense of his own mortality.

…as long as we can get rid of some “setbacks”!

The wonderful beaches, unique products, exquisite services and the hospitality, Greece is known for, should never be compromised by “setbacks”.

Beetroot created a series of videos, commissioned by the Greek Ministry of Culture and the Greek National Tourism Organization about the simple, everyday things that can really make a difference in Greek tourism growth.

We are very happy to announce that our ”A couple of drops” Extra Virgin Olive oil packaging won a merit at The Dieline Package Design Awards 2013!

According to Yo Santosa (judge & founder of Ferro Concrete): ”(Our packaging) is a fun, playful design that makes me happy to use olive oil. It’s a delightful way to make the kitchen a more inviting place. I admire its clever use of materials. It’s a smart creative solution that’s cute to boot.”
