Eugene Yakushev, Creative Director of branding agency CETIS

Introduction

Every day we interact with dozens or even hundreds of companies: goods, services, products. Each of them is a universe where thousands of people, thoughts and ideas make our lives easier, faster, more comfortable and exciting. Often we do not even think of why we have chosen this or that company, or why we trust some product or service. But you can be sure, right now, when you are reading this, someone is seriously concerned about you choosing their product. At the heart of this major work lies a visual communications system, its main components being certainly the logo and the corporate identity. Design and branding agencies are making great efforts to build and integrate the images that will help their clients to attract consumers as quickly, safely and efficiently as possible. In this book you will find many examples of how many brands around us were created, how their visual systems look now and what ideas their images are based on. But what's the difficulty of this project? To understand this, we must examine the entire process of designing a logo and corporate identity from scratch. Creation The Client Brief Working on the logo begins well before it appears on paper. Within the brief the agency analyzes the target audience, the competitors, the preferences of the business owners, the nature of the promoted product, the media bearing the logo and many other extra options that have no direct relation to the logo itself, but are important to create the cornerstone, the idea.

One would think, why such efforts only for a small image with the inscription of the corporate name? But since the creation of the first logos, long time has passed, there have been launched hundreds of thousands of brands, and the need to be different now is particularly crucial. However, the diversification is not the main target, because the objective of any business is to offer their customers a bit more than just a product – it's important to offer also a philosophy, the idea of the brand. The client and their vision, their position and the nature of the business at this stage play a key role; in the end it will be their task to navigate their ship in the tumultuous waves of the ocean of business. Business Research Analysts, marketing experts, focus groups, designers and illustrators are only a small part of the experts involved in the process of creating a logo. Their common objective is to accommodate in a small shape the whole stratum of ideas, thoughts and concepts, carried by the client company, while maintaining the simplicity of shapes and clarity of the logo. At the first step of creating a logo there comes a combination of knowledge of the developers and the client. Developers try to see and analyze the nearest future of the company, to simulate the picture of the target audience, to find the most accurate reflection of the visual image of the company, which will meet the preferences of the target audience and the client. On the first step a basis is provided which will be subsequently expresses in the shapes and the graphics. Image Research Here the fun begins. This is exactly the moment when a simple image turns into a symbol, a sign, the future reflection of the company

ideology in its dialogue with consumers. At this step, the designer transforms the theoretical knowledge into shapes. He is looking for a very clear, minimalistic, accessible shape, which can without further explanation deliver the key message of the company. The work on the sketch is completed only when the designer can virtually foresee the shape, the type, the color, the texture of the future logo. Design This step is, perhaps, the most interesting, it is now when all the ideas and concepts previously expressed only in general outline and sketches, finally gain the shape and the look that is closest to the target. In the hands of the designer paper sketches and drafts are converted into a completed shape of the logo. This is how it will be presented to the client and the audience. In addition, the step is the starting point in creating the future visual identification system. In today's world the role of the logo can even fade into insignificance. The Internet, interactive television, mobile technology - all this creates a common informational space, where the modern brand is necessarily present. All these technologies make it possible to surround the consumer with the brand attributes for a long time, and the visibility of the service or product provided is often even higher than the recognition of its logo. That's why the task of modern designers is not so much in creating a logo but in creation of a system of visual identification.

The system of visual identification comprises a set of stylistic elements interaction with which forms recognition and habituation to the brand. Here everything is important: colors, patterns, the image library, copywriting, fonts, as well as combinations of all these. This range of components determines the communication system in which the logo plays a leading role. We draw the sketch of the logo - creating a business card, see the flaws in the logo, or in color, or font - correct the logo - again make a business card, well, we did it! We create a letterhead, we see some flaws again, make adjustments in the sketch and come back to the module. Advertising layouts, web banners, souvenirs - each of these and many other items contribute to the style being created, and only after going through all these steps, we can get a guaranteed outcome that meets all the requirements of the technological society. Presentation to Client The most exciting and important moment. We all know how it is sometimes difficult to convey our thoughts and ideas even to someone close to us, because everybody has their own vision, values and affection, which, of course, must be respected. And here comes the day when the results of our research, work and sleepless nights are to be presented to those for whom it was intended. Believe me strong and worthy ideas are obvious, so, before the presentation, the designer or the agency should ask themselves only one question, "Does the product we have created match the task?" And if the answer is - yes, don't be afraid of anything. You will have success. Integration The logo can be compared with an expensive suit, which is tailored for

your shape and fits perfectly, no matter what you do. It is extremely difficult to create a perfect suit, but if you did, the result is worth it. A project becomes successful not only when the agency sees the development of the visual communication system, but also when the client likes the idea and sees how the proposed concept can be implemented. In this case, you can be sure that you have created a long-living product. Trends Think of the associations with: •Apple •McDonald's •Adidas What comes to your mind? •Innovations, something metallic, glassy. •Cheap and fast, something yellow-red, even smells like French fries. •Sport challenge or something dark with texts encouraging you to challenge yourself and the others. As you can see the logos play a big role in the associations, of course. But not the most important one. The trend of leveling out the significance of the logo and coming to the front of the whole cluster of components of corporate identity is a characteristic feature of the future visual communications. Mixing of the offline and online parts of business, the time when brands are tightly integrated into our environment at all stages of human life, expands the boundaries of user interaction. Today's brand is not just a logo, it's an ideology that welcomes you in social networks, on the screens of your tablets,

7

phones and computers. The key difference of the development methods for this approach lies in the fact that the main object of brand recognition is the system of visual communication as a whole, which includes the logo and colors, and fonts, and the opportunity of using additional elements: patterns, fills, and image libraries - as well as a number of other features reflected in the package (paper, shape) and related products, various marketing materials and souvenirs.

This is a brand identity you designed for your own studio. What make you think of using the basic triangles, circles, squares to make up the brand image? Do they have any special meaning to your studio? Lots of complex shapes consist of dot, line and cover, and circles, triangles as well as squares become the initial visual elements. I think such kind of variation will influence our designs all the time. The design concept of our studio mainly focuses on vision that we generally figure out the design meaning of the logo through the initial patterns.

Logo design becomes more diverse. What do you think the trend of logo design today? Logo will be more and more abundant in its design by the development of printing, craftsmanship, logo carrier and so on. For example, logo can be dynamic in multimedia while it varies under some lively images. Logo may vary by the change of the aesthetic appreciation from public designer. However, this trend is unable to prove the change is well. In my opinion, logo is not only a pattern, but also a richer conceptual sign that can be used to communicate by people.

ALEX POULSEN ARKITEKTER Alex Poulsen Arkitekter (APA) was founded in 1944 by Alex Poulsen (1910-1999), one of the most advanced and sought after architects of his time. In working with the new identity, Re-public has set themselves in the place of the architect and experimented with the use of space and building blocks as a foundation for the logo. The individual letterforms can be deconstructed and re-assembled in different ways. The result is a solid, yet light and playful visual expression, in-line with the architectural premise. Representation, statement, and dynamics complement each other to form a harmonious unit. The complete identity combines all the elements that make up Alex Poulsen Arkitekter: a Nordic, old-established corporate philosophy with a high level of professionalism and innovative power. STUDIO: Re-public [Denmark] CREATIVE DIRECTOR: Romeo Vidner, Morten Windelev DESIGNER: Romeo Vidner

We can see that the individual letterforms can be deconstructed and re-assembled in different ways to form the logo and the client name. It creates a diverse and dynamic visual effect. Where does your inspiration come from? In this design, how did you come to the perfect balance of visual charm and functionality of the design? Being curious and fascinated by the subject, is ultimately what led us to this design solution and the initial idea was the strongest and the one that made it all the way through the design process. The main source of inspiration for this project has been different impressions of architecture and building, so it quickly came natural to work with the concept of building blocks. The first thing we did was to shorten the relatively long company name from Alex Poulsen Architects to APA, a practice that is common in the naming of Danish architecture firms. Having the short name in place, the initial sketch work was about searching for a visual language in the typography that would reflect the aesthetics of Scandinavian architecture. At the same time we experimented with the letterforms, trying to find an interesting and harmonious balance between the individual graphic shapes.

We also know that ALEX POULSEN ARKITEKTER helped you win Red Dot Award 2011. What are your views on the future development trend of logo design? Like with every other aspect of contemporary visual culture, there are of course trends in the aesthetics of logo design. But it is not very interesting to comment on or pay attention to the most apparent and characteristic trends. Instead, we aspire to maintain a contemporary and fresh style, and we think it is more interesting to always experiment and push the boundaries of the visual language, than to simply adapt current trends. Taking functionality and concept as an example, there is an interesting development going on, that the traditional static logo no longer has to be the anchor of a visual identity. Fueled by technological advances in new media, other aspects like typography, color, composition and dynamic symbolism are strong tools that can establish a strong and characteristic visual expression, without the need for a conventional logo mark.

How do you understand logo design? Please share your experience or thought in logo design? Mr. Jean Jaques Schaffner, juror of the Red Dot Award 2011, summarizes it well in the explanation for choosing the APA logo for the Red Dot: Grand Prix: "The logo is reduced to the max. The design is explaining the meaning of architecture itself even not mentioning architecture. This is what a good brand is."

How do you think the value of typeface in logo design? The typface is visual attire for words. It defines the look and feel of a word or brand name, so it is of great significance in logo design. In the past, a logo has traditionally been thought of as a figurative symbol of emblematic character. Today, corporate logos are more often based on a typographic wordmark, which promotes the typeface to be the primary expressive visual element, responsible of communicating brand history, values and tone of voice. Besides, when designing a wordmark, there are a progressively vast number of typefaces available to choose from.

UK JAPAN The British Embassy in Japan asked johnson banks to think about a symbol they could use for a series of events celebrating projects carried out jointly between British and Japanese companies. "As we experimented with ways to sum up the UK and Japan in one single symbol, we wondered if we could find a typographic solution to what seemed a very tricky conundrum. We looked to see if we could take the letters for 'UK' and combine them with the kanji for Japan. At first sight, this seemed almost impossible - we could see how it might be possible to combine the first kanji with a 'U', but the other character was much more challenging. By spinning the characters in both languages left and right, we began to make some headway. Luckily, we had managed to find a genuinely bilingual symbol to sum up the collaboration." Designers say so. STUDIO: johnson banks [UK] CREATIVE DIRECTOR: Michael Johnson DESIGNER: Julia Woollams Process

What is the purpose of a logo?

What's your design philosophy in brand design?

Originally, at a very basic level, a logo was a unique way of writing yours or a company's name – a kind of signature and way of making your individual mark on the world. Over the last decade brands are being using more as entire communications toolkits, to the degree now where many companies and organisations are thinking much harder about their brand, and how they use it, than they are about their advertising strategy.

Our design philosophy is to try not to repeat ourselves; to do something memorable and unique, whilst finding something that solves our client's design problem. However, it is more difficult to do than it sounds.


24

25

What do you think the values and effects of logo?

What's your design philosophy in brand design?

There are two clear trends emerging. The first is towards more and more flexible systems, of which johnson banks has done several including Pew Center for Arts and Heritage, Guggenheim UBS MAP Global Art Initiative and Ravensbourne. The second trend is towards identities that work across multiple platforms at different scales and perform different functions in the way that the Twitter system has its full name, its "t" and also its bird symbol. Conversely in the future there may be a backlash against flexible and multi-platform brands and a return towards simplicity. For example Starbucks' recent rebrand dropped the name "Starbucks Coffee" from their logo altogether, giving the "siren" more prominence.

A good logo should be either compelling in its simplicity or confounding in its complexity. A great name helps, of course - a bad name needs an interesting graphic identity just to get it to stand out.

What do you think the value of typeface in logo design? The value of a typeface in logo design cannot be underestimated as it immediately gives an impression of the character and personality of the entity it represents. It is an opportunity to set the tone of voice with which it will speak, and as logos are often called upon to act as sole representatives of these entities, it is important to consider this properly. In the case of Atelier Punkt, a stencil typeface was chosen to reflect the industrial physical context of the space itself, as well as the notion of building—a community built by assembling disparate fields of practices together. The choice of typeface also plays a major role in the rest of Atelier Punkt's visual identity. While the various promotional pieces are all built around the logo and an unchanging grid, a different headline typeface is especially created every year—a simple device making every season stand out from the previous.

Feed studio has lots of excellent brand design works. Would you please share your experience and thought with us in logo design? We strive for the simplest, clearest solutions in all of our branding work. After a careful analysis of the client's needs and the nature of their work, we can usually synthesize an essential gesture, an elemental graphic device which becomes the pillar from which the entire visual identity can

be built. Instead of presenting an exhaustive array of applications to the client, we work to explain the reasoning behind this gesture. Once that is communicated, it is then quite easy for anyone to imagine the device applied to a range of applications often exceeding even the client's initial needs.

How do you think the effects of typeface in logo design?

How do you understand logo design? Please share your experience in logo design?

Typeface design is an essential part of a logo for us, and maybe the most strategic. It requires some specific skills, culture and passion. While the symbol often tells directly the meaning of the brand, typeface has the subtle role of transmitting a spirit and a state of mind.

Our experience in logo design has shown us that firstly, a brand designer will getting better and better through the years. He has to get more and more experience, to have a wide culture of brand design and must continually feed himself of a natural curiosity.

What do you think the trends of future logo design?

Logo design for us is a discipline that doesn't lie. And it is also an essential step in the life of a company, that can't be overlooked. But strangely, we think that a wide education work is still necessary to make every company, from small to big ones, understand how important a strong branding work is.

33

I think that we are reaching an age when the word "trend" has completely lost its meaning, because everything is going faster than before. Today, in logo design, many trends are mixing each other. That's why we believe at Brand Brothers that it is necessary to come back to the original meaning of a logotype. The future "right trend" will be to avoid short-term trends, avoid over-arty and about-fashioned identities, and be simple and efficient and always trying to be inside the head of your client's clients.

What are the necessary qualities of a good logo? The qualities of a good logo are the same than 40 years ago. A design that must be essentially timeless, simple, relevant, perfectly in phase with the positioning of the brand you are working for, and that has the most complete meaning with the less graphic elements. Don't try to make in 2012 identities that say "I was created in 2012"!

Process


34

As we all known, the quality of applications play an important role in whether a logo success or not. What are your views on the applications of logo? In our experience, a qualitative use of logo can enhance the value of a brand. The more selective one is about a logo, the more it will be noticed. It's about filtering out the touchpoints of a brand and using these in an innovative way.

What kind of role do you think typeface plays in logo design? I think typeface is meaningful in logo design. And more and more companies are selecting a proper logotype for their companies. Logo

I n consideration of the relations between logo and design industry, would you please share your experience and thought in logo design? Although the graphic corporate design concept is also important, logo design considerably shapes the overall image of a brand. After all, a good brand should also be recognisable by the significant manipulation of color, shape, image and materials even without the logo.

RAVENSBOURNE This famous digital media and design institution has recently undertaken one of the biggest transformations as an educational institution. johnson banks' task, with both words and pictures, was to find a way to reposition the institution externally whilst bringing the internal community on board. At the same time they were pitching their positioning into the future and reflecting all of this with an identity change. After discussion and research, johnson banks began the design process. Following the tessellating patterns of Roger Penrose, the visual statement of the tiles was too powerful to ignore. The fact that, from just three shapes, so many permutations were possible seemed to nicely echo the education process.

PEW CENTER FOR ARTS & HERITAGE The Pew Center needed the benefits of one unified identity, whilst somehow recognising its work in dance, exhibitions, fellowships, theatres, management, heritage and music. To make it trickier, they wanted to let the initiatives retain their current names. After lengthy discussions, and several unsuccessful design presentations, johnson banks started to think of the center and its constituent parts a little like "cards" that could shuffle and reorganise. The next step was building a uniquely fluid identity system that allows flexibility in the core mark and then completely inverted logos for the divisions.

TRIANGLE PROJECT PART 3 The Triangle Project is an ongoing process-based cultural exchange project between New York, Istanbul and Copenhagen. The purpose of the projects is to create a sustainable creative and constructive interaction and dialogue between cultures and ways of thinking. Re-public has designed a new identity for the project based on the geometric form, the triangle - in all its shapes and forms. To be true to the divine form, the triangle has exactly the same position and size on all the posters. Also Re-public gave the flyers different folding techniques inspired by the De Divina Proportione, the pyramids and the way a gentlemen wears a handkerchief in his jacket. Re-public developed The Triangle Project part 1, 2 and 3. STUDIO: Re-public [Denmark] CREATIVE DIRECTOR: Romeo Vidner, Morten Windelev DESIGNER: Romeo Vidner

As we all knowN, the quality of applications play an important role in whether a logo SUCCEED or not. What are your views on the applications of the logo? We always aim to maintain the highest level of finish in the implementation of any project – whether it is commissioned with a design brief for commercial use, or a project that is more artistic in nature. The Triangle Project was a non-commercial project, which allowed for a higher degree of artistic freedom and experimental implementation. The concept of the identity dictates that the execution of the logo is reinterpreted every year, which allows for continually reinvention and updating of the identity. Therefore it is the style of the implementation that really creates the look and feel of the identity, rather than just the name and logo. Applying and implementing a logo is everything for a successful identity. It is a discipline in itself. We love to experiment and challenge ourselves, our clients and especially our suppliers, to see what they can do with different media and techniques. Talking implementation, our starting point is always that everything is possible.

Please share your own ideas on the significance of a triangle and the role it plays in your logo design. The idea was to assume the same form in all parts of the Triangle Project, but changing the design of each arrangement. It creates a contemporary expression while it challenged us to be innovative. And it was liberating to be allowed to re-think the visual identity every time.

SCIENCE MUSEUM No-one would ever doubt that for schoolchildren, families and tourists. London's Science Museum is a great day out. But its identity was lagging far behind, with a recessive house-style that was failing to encapsulate the museum's fantastic collection. After a long audit and design investigation, a route began to take shape using the two-word name. johnson banks created a unique arrangement of the characters into a four-line block that took its cue from code and digital typefaces. It takes a little bit of working out, but "decoding and sharing" seemed an apt analogy for the museum itself. It also provided them with what they've never had a unique word mark to identify them which can be literally "stamped" onto everything they do.

BARD OF BRAY IDENTITY Hat-trick Design was tasked with creating an identity for a design and advertising copywriter, Scott Perry, who works under the pseudonym "Bard of Bray". The aim was to reflect Scott's personality and his approach to writing. Hat-trick Design wanted him to get noticed in an engaging way, and to animate and bring his words to life. As a writer Scott loves playing with words. His other love is food. As part of a series of short films created for Scott's website, Hat-trick Design had used alphabet spaghetti to spell out one of his golden rules for writing. It struck Hat-trick Design that this was the best combination of Scott's two passions, and could be used as an unusual but distinctive typeface for icons. Scott works under the pseudonym "Bard of Bray". The alphabet spaghetti "B" was therefore chosen to represent him. A further range of letters, such as "NB", "EG and "PS" were then created and photographed, to be used to illustrate topics Scott might need to talk about.

ACTION ON HEARING LOSS IDENTITY Hat-trick Design was asked to create a bold new identity "Action on Hearing Loss" for celebrating RNID's centenary in 2011. During the two-year project, extensive research discovered that, despite its 100-year history, RNID's name had very low recognition, was often confused with other organisations with similar names/acronyms and did not reflect the full spectrum of the charity's support and services. Action on Hearing Loss established a clearer position about the charity's mission, which was clearly demonstrated in the research. The rebrand also marked the charity's shift towards a more campaigning stance and a strategy defined as "challenging attitudes and inspiring action". The new underline/strikethrough design centres on the idea of "underlining the positive" and "striking out the negative" to emphasize a flexible range of key messages about eradicating the negative impacts of hearing loss.

Nowadays, more and more transferable or adaptable logos have emerged, what effects will bring for the diversification of the whole brand? What do you think about this trend of logo design? I'm sure that this is not just a trend but mostly necessity. It will be nearly impossible for static identity to be recognizable nowadays with so huge amount of competitors. Every day we are changing. Everything is changing dramatically fast. To survive you need to adapt. To be adaptable you need to be flexible but keeping your essence. This is all about nowadays transferable branding.

What's your favorite brand case? Well, it is hard to define the most favorite, every day something inspiring by fresh solution, revolutionizing ideas. The world is changing every minute. Well-known cases usually are not the most innovative, that's why my collection of respect will say nothing to the main audience.

How do you think the design meets the clients' requirements? The most important task was to find a solution that will be efficient for the various sub-target audiences, from the city citizens to the tourists. Due to the reason that many different happenings take place in this city, from touristic promotions, special events, international meetings to special government programs, I needed to take into account of the required diversity of the identity, which means the logo should be easily transformed for every known and unknown purposes. So we did massive international research to find out the different sides of Kyiv that will be apprehended by different target groups, meeting the client's requirement of creating a touristic brand of the city that will inspire.

What made you not to choose the color fills? To you, how are the patterns, picture fills different from the color fills? What are the influences or effects having on the brand values? Colors are running out. You could easily remember a huge amount of red brands, black brands, and yellow brands. Therefore, it is quite impossible to be different by using just colors. Target audience will not be able to differentiate your brand by colors, but for patterns it might still be possible for the next two years. The most important thing is not only to create patterns, but to generate patterns in a recognisable way with ideas. This trend enables the brands to be "smart and cute", at the same time, to be different, to be more expressive and attractive.

C2 – CULTURAL CENTER The city of Torcy, Burgundy, France recently built a great complex dedicated to the promotion of culture & Arts, highlighting local and national artists. The main goal was to create a total new and innovative entity, as much by its program as by its branding and communication. C2 was chosen from a couple of hundred names for its international recognition, pronunciation and readability. It stands simply for cultural center or the two initials 2c reversed. The logotype guidelines show a slight dipping of the "c" and the "." to create the optical illusion that all characters are aligned on the same baseline. Minimalism was then kept for the whole visual identity. The diagonal axis (45°) of the "2" was used to display information on every print document.

The mark also strongly emphasized the IWM name and tied each of the branch names to the IWM master brand. The graphic angles taken from the mark helped create a powerful visual language, a refreshed color palette, more coherent typographic style and clearly defined imagery guidelines.

TRINITY LABAN Trinity Laban were an agglomeration of one of London's top music colleges (Trinity College of Music), a world-famous specialist dance school (Laban) and a merged "umbrella" organisation that in theory glued all the elements together. The only problem was, they didn't seem to be much linked. So the designer took the unusual step of designing an identity for Trinity Laban that can be seen from different angles – tilting one way then the other for different parts of the organisation. For Laban, the symbol turns down and appears like a floor, for Trinity it reverses and appears as a roof, they can then place dancers and musicians into the space between and bring the logo to life with relatively fewer elements. The logo can either be used in a simple way, as a "flat" element (albeit at a specific angle), or as if it is viewed from above.

How did you combine the traditional elements and modern designs together in this logo design?

Logo

It is so particular that Liushi Bambooweave can use hairlike bamboo filaments to weave various vivid patterns. And exquisite workmanship must be highlighted in the products. As creating the logo, the designer has taken intuitiveness and identifiability into consideration, employed seal character in editing and combined the logo with the products. The shape of the logo is similar to seal, manifesting the combination of traditional element and modern design.

L ots of yo u r designs have applied the traditional elements, how do you understand it ? W hat are yo u r views of traditional elements? It is related to our culture. In China, no matter what we design, we should respect the traditional culture and cannot abandon the classic to recreate. It is really a pity that the long history cannot keep steps with the modern world. So the modern design should focus on how discovering rather than creating.

Would you please share your experience and thought in logo design? Logo design should be simple and intelligible. In my opinion, solving problems is more important than designing a logo. And the logo design should be diverse in that people can accept new things more than ever before. Therefore, we should be bold to create and never giver up until we can satisfy.

How do you understand logo design? Please share your experience in logo design.

Logo design becomes more diverse. What do you think is the trend of current logo design?

Logo is regarded as an event, an object and a dominant mark of a company or a brand. It can exist in a visible or invisible way and represent a visual pattern that is apt to memorize, spread and appeal.

Logo will be more and more abundant in its design by the development of printing, craftsmanship, logo carrier and so on. For example, logo can be dynamic in multimedia while it varies under some lively images. Logo may vary by the change of the aesthetic appreciation from public designer. However, this trend is unable to prove the change is well. In my opinion, logo is not only a pattern, but also a richer conceptual sign that can be used to communicate by people.

This is a brand identity you designed for your own studio. What make you think of using the basic triangles, circles, squares to make up the brand image? Do they have any special meaning to your studio? Lots of complex shapes consist of dot, line and cover, and circles, triangles as well as squares become the initial visual elements. I think such kind of variation will influence our designs all the time. The design concept of our studio mainly focuses on vision that we generally figure out the design meaning of the logo through the initial patterns.

STUDIO: Hat-trick Design [UK] CREATIVE DIRECTOR: Jim Sutherland, Gareth Howat DESIGNER: Gareth Howat, Jim Sutherland, Adam Giles

What do you think the values and effects of logo? A logo can reflect the values of an organisation. It has the potential power to inform, entertain, engage, challenge, influence and interest. It's not just about the mark itself, but how it's used in context, with colors, imagery and language.

How do you understand logo design? Please share your experience in logo design. Keep things simple and uncluttered. Make it interesting and engaging. Stand out from the crowd. Be appropriate but surprising.

What are the necessary qualities of a good logo? Ideas, simplicity, engagement, strength, intelligence, interest are the qualities. It's quite a long list of things to get in a simple marque.

What do you think the trend of future logo design? I think logos may become more changing and flexible, less rigid and formal, more colors and formats.

What inspired you of such a dynamic and interactive way to present the entire visual identity? Borne out of the intersection of broadcast and computation, the Media Lab has been reinventing what Media is since 1984. However, today the Media Lab has outgrown this notion of traditional media, with researchers working in areas ranging from Human Computer Interaction to Neurobiology or Nanotechnology. Whatever "Media" means, it has been and will be defined at this place, in the next 5, 10, 20 years. The algorithmic logo is an effort to capture this dynamism.

What is the role of color in this case? How do you think colors assist the expression of brand values? The colors in this case are based on the original identity designed in 1984 by Jaqueline Casey, which was in turn inspired by the Kenneth Noland mural in the Media Lab building. Furthermore it allowed us to create more customizations for each logo.

Logo

In recent years, fluid logos have become a new trend. how did you combine the visu al design style and practical function together in this brand design? It was and interesting progress where we iterated both on the generative side as well as in the graphic, formal realm. While computer algorithms allow for endless possibilities you have to apply knowledge about graphic design, form and counter form, shapes, etc in order to make the logo visually pleasing. It is easy to come up with a system that generates pictures, but it is very hard to come up with a system that generates good logos all the time. That means we introduced many logos which were "only" introduced to ensure a good visual outcome.

MIT MEDIA LAB IDENTITY The new visual identity of the MIT Media Lab is inspired by the community it comprising highly creative people from all kinds of backgrounds, inspiring each other and collaboratively developing a vision of the future. This unique offering of the MIT Media Lab is reflected in the logo design. Each of the three shapes stands for one individual's contribution; the resulting shape represents the outcome of this process: a constant redefinition of what media and technology means today. The logo is based on a visual system, an algorithm that produces a unique logo for each person, for faculty, staff and students. Each person can claim and own an individual shape and can use it on their business card a personal website. The design encompasses all collateral, business cards, letterhead, website, animations, signage, etc. STUDIO: TheGreenEyl [USA] DESIGNER: Richard The, E Roon Kang, Willy Sengewald

OCAD UNIVERSITY IDENTITY OCAD University (OCAD U), Canada's pre-eminent art and design school, had achieved degree-granting status and with that, a new name reflecting that status. They needed a new visual identity that would reflect the path of 135 years old institution moving into the future. The BMD team worked together with OCAD U in an intensive research and engagement phase, in which students, alumni, faculty and staff were involved by facilitating interviews, designing multiple workshops, disseminating questionnaires, leading classroom discussions, and connecting through social media with the goal of excavating the stories and spirit of OCAD U. The synthesis of these materials led them to a robust set of design principles that would help guide work. The visual identity needed to be a true reflection of what people heard and saw - an inclusive, vibrant and vital institution built on creativity, risk and innovation.

Did you have any pre-consideration about color before you started the proposal? We went into the project with an open mind. We typically don't come at projects with preconceived notions about design elements such as color; we start with research and let that guide and inform later design decisions.

With the biggest frame for various elements, the visual presentation becomes diversified. Is the decision based on the client's requirements and characteristics? We designed a system not a single mark. We developed guidelines regarding size and placement, but the curation of the artwork featured in the logo over the years will be OCAD's responsibility. The goal is that the logo always represents the best visual work being done at OCAD.

In the past, color dominates the theme of design, but now what made you not to choose just color fills? To you, how are the patterns, picture fills different from the color fills? There is nothing to say that a future iteration of the logo won't be a solid color fill. Selected students are trusted to create artworks they think are beautiful, daring and representative of OCAD, and if they feel that will be a solid color we also welcome it.

As we discover, enriching visual impact in logo design becomes m u ch easier once we u se more comple x patterns or pictures than just colors. What are the cultural communication considerations you have regarding to this? We would like to consider our audiences carefully and think about the number of times that different people will interact with the identity. We designed a very clean and clear base mark that is flexible enough to communicate in other countries where people don't live alongside the brand on a daily basis. The more local or national audience has the opportunity to experience the full breadth of the system; more moments of contact with the variety of different marks (or artists) come within the system.

PERSONAL BRANDING This is a dignified brand identity with high quality materials and finishes, designed for an international businessman. STUDIO: Bond [Finland] CREATIVE DIRECTOR: Jesper Bange

How did you take the client's characteristics into account to do the logo design? The identity and logo were made for an international business man. The client's initials are M.M., so it felt as a natural decision to start from these letters. The stylized letters also symbolize to people shaking hands.

There are many minimalistic designs in Bond studio. Does it influenced by the Finland design style – Practical and Functional? Generally, we at Bond do not limit ourselves to a certain style. However, many of our designers and clients do like practical and functional style. Thus, most of our design inspiration comes from our Nordic heritage.

How do you understand logo design? Please share your experience in logo design. A good logo is easy to remember, and has a strong idea behind it. That's always our aim. The FedEx logo with the arrow is my favorite example.

What's your idea on using multi-color in the logo design? And what kind of effect does this collocation produce? I can design both monochrome and multi-color logos. However, when creating multi-color logos I always remember that they can also be used in monochrome. Effects can be very different depending on a logo type, a company, etc. Each logo, be it in color or monochrome, should satisfy the main objective, which is to identify a brand.

Logo

What comments on your logo design you get from your clients? During any project implementation I receive different comments - some are appropriate, some are silly. They all are very different; however I do reflect on and try to consider all of them. The main thing for me is to fulfill the assigned task.

BARCELONA REBRANDING For the brand transformation of the major European city of Barcelona, Spain, Lauren Manning focused on creating an identity that would represent both the residents and tourists of the city. Steeped in history, the city embraces both the old and the new. The primary visual element used in the new mark is based on city block. The block is formed by many pieces, or shards, taken from both the famous Gaudi tiling around the city and the streets of the Barri Gotic area. To allow for the ultimate flexibility in use, images may be masked within the logo form to reflect different aspects of the city. An advertising system was developed for the city, meant to be found in other international cities. A packet was developed with a City Pass, metro pass, map and museum booklet for tourists to use. As a final piece, the logo would be installed at a 3D seating element on the Barcelona beachfront in the summer. Tourists and locals alike could enjoy it during the busy season. After a few months, the logo would be dispersed around the city, recognizable as part of the new city brand for the residents themselves.

Aernout Mik Exhibition : Identity

Icon

AERNOUT MIK EXHIBITION The artist’s intention for this exhibition was to “intrude” on the Museum unexpectedly by installing his videos in various locations throughout the Museum. MoMA designers needed to create a wayfinding system that would allow people to recognize the installments, and to make clear visual connections among these video locations. They decided to “overprint” MoMA’s existing floor plan, which was heavily utilized by visitors, with a unique visual identifier, a big green X, to indicate each video’s location. The "X" is a universal icon for indicating locations and for signifying danger; it’s also an element of the flag of Amsterdam, which touched upon this Dutch artist’s cultural identity. Furthermore, designers carried this 2-D visual identity into the environmental space at a larger scale by creating a connection between the floor plan and the actual installation. The intense green color was rather an alarming color for the space. STUDIO: The Museum of Modern Art [USA] DESIGNER: Hsien-yin Ingrid Chou, Samuel Sherman

IDENTITY FOR MOSCOW

This is a proposed identity and execution for the city of Moscow. After research, Jonathan picked up cues like the Kremlin, pattern work and some of the cathedrals, however, it didn't seem enough to capture the identity of Moscow. From there he delved into the history of Moscow, focusing more on design history and iconography. Knowing that constructivism (as well as Russian aesthetic) is very geometric, he felt that the hexagon shape made the most sense in that it resembled a simplified Kremlin structure. After realizing that one logo couldn't suffice for a whole city's identity he concluded that there was enough material to create a set. DESIGNER: Jonathan Carreon [USA]

ICELAND - DRIVEN BY NATURE Iceland-Driven by Nature is a concept based on three core values: contrast (based on an unpredictable and yet powerful nature), together (based on a close relationship between people, nature and craft heritage) and powerful (green/volcanic energy). The solution is an interactive brand that renders live in a 3D shape, data generated according to volcanic activity, wind, weather and humidity, and an organic and ever changing symbol that shows how dramatic Icelandic nature can be. Energy is represented by a fluorescent color palette, while the cooler colors and handwriting typography tell a story about the Icelandic culture and craft heritage.

MARINA PORT VELL The identity reflects an "M", and the sleek shapes cut out of the square to form this "M" evoke the hulls of boats lined up along pontoons. Instead of being filled with a fixed color, the identity is an aperture through which elements of the city can be glimpsed. Any of 20 specially commissioned photographs can fill the symbol, from architectural details to natural features in the city, increasing the icon's versatility and reflecting the diversity of the marina and the culture of Barcelona. Because there is no strict color palette, and the only constricting factor is that the imagery must fit the aperture, the city's vibrant colors and textures are allowed to flourish. The inherent richness in these colors and textures conveys a striking and authentic sense of place, reflecting the reasons why Marina Port Vell is such a desirable homeport for super yacht owners, captains and their crew.

HUBRECHT INSTITUTE The most elementary form from developmental biology is chosen as the foundation for the design of the new identity: the stem cell. Different circles represent the stem cells and are used as the "building blocks" for the new identity. In the logo they develop into an abstract form which represents an embryo. The basic form from the previous logo was maintained for the recognizability of the institute. In all of the corporate identity's communication tools the further development - from embryo to living being - is represented through the circular pattern. Each becomes three embryonic stages in different print layers superimposed to form an illusion of depth. Every layer is superimposed in one of the three corporate identity colors.

Logo

In peoples' minds, and in research, Virgin Atlantic was the most admired brand in the vast Virgin stable of companies. But, oddly, when you looked hard at the brand, both its words and its visuals lagged behind. The challenge with this project was how far to take the brand, whether to attempt wholesale revolution or carefully evolve the brand elements that were already there. After exhaustive audit stages and a detailed process to define what the company stood for, verbally, the time had come to look at the visuals. From even the earliest designs, johnson banks agreed that the time had come to write the company's name in full again (ie "Virgin Atlantic"), and as large as they could get it down the fuselage. Following that, they decided that the red tailfin containing the script logo should be retained, and carefully redrawn to a much simpler and more elegant shape. Process

This way they can fill the whole available space and also get a strong but fine "K" sign, with the letter "K" being the first letter of the studio name. The visual sign can differ from surface-to-surface, as the focus-point can be moved from one location to another, but it should always be adjusted to the size, ratio, and content of the surface.

ZAMTEL REBRANDING Zamtel is a Zambian cellular network that originally started in 1913 with the introduction of the first telephone exchange in the tourist capital of Livingstone. In June 2010 the Zambian government partially privatized the company. Ateljee was then asked to rebrand Zamtel to accompany the renewed passion, ambition and commitment to delivering quality communication, as well as the new approach to business and customers that marked the change within the business. Taking the Zambian landscape into consideration, the brand required something bold and fresh that would stand out, and with this in mind a fresh green and white was chosen as the primary colors of the logo. When considering the logo shape, Ateljee decided to use a unique holding shape being the circle. The circle is a powerful visual symbol, as it does not have a beginning or an end, it is infinite. Circles are repeated inside the logo, as symbol of the multiple telecommunication solutions that Zamtel provide. This gives the identity a sense of energy that represents the new team responsible for driving business success. STUDIO: Ateljee [South Africa] CREATIVE DIRECTOR: Fred Swart Process
