Description Identity for ZOE Tea for Life Proposed Branding

Process ZOE Tea for Life is a subsidiary of a major soft drink company looking to break into the organic tea market. The target market consists of people from ages 20-45. With this in mind I developed an overall style of organic meets hipster. The logo is organic in nature with rough edges and bold lettering. The leaves reach out towards the morning sky and the colors of green and rich brown complement the organic feel. Illustrator

Description Collateral for ZOE Tea for Life

Process The stationery and all collateral is based around the logo. The logo with it's organic feel against the rigid bold center line, which mimics the iced tea bottle shape, gives the two elements contrast. The heavy center line also serves as an anchor for the logo. Illustrator

Description Magazine Ad, 1 Proposed Series of Three Ads

Process This is a series of three ads which will be featured in publications that cater to the target audience of Zoe Tea for Life. First ad is for a new drink made from a special “secret” formula of tea leaves. “Back in Black” was chosen for the strong rock and roll reference while giving a sense of power to the drink. This combination of slick packaging with an organic drink is what being organically hip is all about. Photoshop, Illustrator

Description Magazine Ad, 2

Process Second ad is a showcase of the iced teas Zoe Tea for Life is ready to launch into the market. The vibe is candy and lipstick. “Simply Irresistible” is a reference to all things sweet and it just happened to be a very popular song from the 80’s. Photoshop, Illustrator

Description Magazine Ad, 3

Process Third ad is the most organic looking piece. Only the three flavored teas are featured. The feel for this ad is elegant classic rocker. All three ads show the brand as organically hip by balancing contrasting elements of the 80’s Pop-Rock culture with a modern flair and vibrant style. Phtoshop, Illustrator

Description Proposed Web Site for ZoeTea for Life

Process Design a web site that shows consistency to the brand identity and vibe of organically hip. The web site uses the brown logo for the mark and also has a very elegant worldly feel to it. I wanted to give the site a sense of dimension and surrealism by using the floating scroll throughout the site. The main attributes that needed to be met were: clear navigation, brand recognition, and clean composition. Photoshop (design), Dreamweaver (comps)

Description Re-Branding of OMSI Image Proposed Multi-Usage Logo Concept

Process I researched the existing logo and company to get a feel of what needed to change and what to keep. The first thing I did was to attach a symbolic figure to the existing logo and revamp the typography. The symbol depicts a person reaching for the stars searching for knowledge. This gives it a brand with which people could identify with. I also did a multi-use style logo to be used in various publications and advertisements. The colors of the symbol are playful and bright.

Description Proposed Marketing Strategy Mall Kiosk- MHCC Integrated Media
