Presentation Transcript
  • My first step in designing my Brand Identity, was looking at other successful brand identities, and researching the different logos. The most interesting thing I found in while researching this field, was the fact that almost every single brand identity is simple, and usually revolves around two different colour types.
  • I wanted my Brand Identity to remain simple, yet also look unique, so I started to look at brand designers for some inspiration.

Initial Photoshop Designs

Here are some of my initial “play around” designs, here I experimented with some of the tools and effects in Photoshop, for example, the use of emboss, drop shadows, ect, just to see how they looked, in order to make a decision on which effects I would use as I got further in the design process. I also experimented with different fonts and font sizes, and color overlays.

After exploring some of the tools on Photoshop, I started to try and build a mini logo, and started to experiment with colors, fonts, and shapes, these are a few of the initial ideas that helped me progress further down the design process. After this I decided that I didn't want to use too much color (if any) as I thought it made my identity look unprofessional, so I started to steer away from this type of design.

In this design, I tried to go down a more professional route, and designed a logo with a more elegant feel to it. I experimented with different font types and eventually settled on this design, however I decided it looked too serious and every time I looked at it, I thought it looked like a solicitors or accountants brand identity.

Further Development

I really liked this design, I felt the use of bevel emboss on the right hand design looked good, however I thought it looked a bit “spooky” so decided to take away the blue color overlay and strip the design back and leave it white, I liked this, however I thought the whole thing looked a bit big and simple, so I started to experiment again.

This is my finished brand identity, after some thought, I decided to reduce the size of the H, and take away some of the structure to this letter to show variety, I also decided to use grey and white as I like the simplicity, and didn't want to use any bright color as I wanted the design to stand rather than the color. I feel these colors resemble diversity and simplicity, and also have a professional look at the same time, however the design itself looks modern and creative, which is what I wanted to achieve as an identity for myself.
