For the 2011 Google I/O Developer Conference, Manual devised an appropriate identity and packaging solution for Android’s Accessory Development Kit. The Android team wanted to inspire developers to create hardware and software solutions for the Android platform. Manual’s challenge was to create a cost effective packaging solution.
Our design drew its inspiration directly from a piece of hardware included in the kit, an Arduino circuit board. We created a typographic illustration incorporating universal icons to hint at possible applications of the technology. Limited edition silkscreen posters and t-shirts were used as giveaways for developers.
