For this class project, I was tasked with designing logos and stationary packages for an imaginary company of my choosing. The company I chose focused on athletic and sports apparel, so I aimed to reflect that in the branding. Through my research I felt that the use of a sans serif font would provide a modern and sleek feeling to the overall brand.
Initial sketches for the word-mark explored a variation of different typeface styles and some more abstract letters as well. After deciding on a few concepts, I further explored the designs and styles of the word-marks.
I ended up choosing the second version of the sketches and developed it in Adobe Illustrator, giving it a very sleek appearance which related well to the brand goals. I then chose colours that I felt represented the overall brand and their market, and in addition they provided some visual interest.
