Colors have feelings and evoke emotional responses but these feelings can be affected by what surrounds them.
Let’s try out a little experiment… okay?
If you have a color swatch in each of your hands and the one on the left is a
soft, baby blue with a hint of lavender and the one on the right is a bold orange-yellow, which one would you say is calm?

Have you ever worked relentlessly to find the answer to something– and then it seemed the solution appeared seemingly out of nowhere?
This is an “Ah-Ha Moment”, one that’s particularly important in branding.
The discovery phase in branding can be grueling and difficult. The goal is to find the
utmost essence of a brand and represent it visually in one iconic logo design. That’s a TALL order!
I recently embarked on a several month journey with a client to develop a new logo for a new organization. (I’ll leave out details for anonymity. 🙂 )
We began with the
usual research phase, list of goals for the project and specific direction on major design elements.
I poured my efforts and creative vision into new illustrations and felt great about the designs I had ready for review. I sent them along for review… waited…
Inky calligraphy fonts are so intriguing… their beauty and form seem like an instance win, right?! You may think- done. I want this for my logo. But it may be the very wrong choice.
Since May of 2013, I have had the pleasure of watching client and dear friend LZ Cathcart grow and develop a rapidly expanding business and as of next month… will be opening a storefront!
