the final reveal!
Although identity C got a lot of positive feedback, our conclusive decision was to choose Identity A with some minor revisions. The scores for both were VERY close, and our final decision was based on one very important factor. Which identity was stronger as a BRAND vs which identity was more inline with an artistic design. We felt that Identity A was a stronger BRAND focused identity. While identity C was more artistic, which works well for creativity and art, but is not always the best route when deciding on a business identity.
Our focus this time around was on our name. We get that our name is sometimes hard to remember or say, but we have had it for 10 years and it’s has a lot of meaning and history. So rather than changing the name, we made it stand out, Strong, Bold, Fun and representative of who we are!
As you can see, we made some tweaks to the font to add elements that the other logos had, integrating a more curvy, flowing look to the font without veering too much away from the original.
So without further adieu!
