S O LU T I O N Cacique was founded In 1973 by a young couple, Gilbert and Jennie de Cardenas. The name “Cacique” means the chief of a tribe, the ultimate aut h o r i t y, t h e v e r y b e s t , and t he p in n a c l e o f experience. Cacique makes a whole line of cheeses, from a smooth, creamy Quesadilla Cheese that melts perfectly around chicken, to a thick Crema Mexicana Agria (sour cream) that tastes l i ke a tan g i e r c ream c h e e s e . The existing logo illustration was a quaint pen and ink depiction of the two founders. I embedded this illustration in an old-world style design which i n c l ud e s t h e n am e s o f t h e fo u n d ers a n d it e m p h as i ze s t h e b rand n am e “Cacique.” Since Cacique is a Mexican cheese, the patterns an d t h e co l o rs are i n s p i re d by t he t ra d it io n a l h o us e s o f M e xi co.

Book Poster

S O LU T I O N The conference took place in Muir Woods Park . Attendees spent three days exploring the park and collecting objects from nature such as leaves, snail shells, and pine cones and taking pictures. The relationship between nature and the golden ratio has intrigued me for a long while. Nature’s geometric patterns are perfect, unparalleled, and p u r e . V i a p h o t o g ra p h s , a n d t y p o g ra p h y, the field trip developed a dialogue between natural pat te r n s an d t h e go l d e n rat io 1. 618. The unique selling point of this book is the beauty of nature. The message is how the Golden Ratio was d e v e l o p e d f ro m nature .

S O LU T I O N Schlotzsky’s is a privately held restaurant franchise, specializing in sandwiches. Founded in 1971 i n Aus t i n , Te xas b y D o n an d Do l o res Dissm a n , Schlotzsky’s has more than 350 restaurants. Most of these are located across the south and southwestern United States, but the company is expanding into other locations, particularly t h e no r t h an d s o ut h eas t . In order to make the new packaging look unique, healthy and attractive, I used red as the main color with cream and brown as secondar y colors. To make the brand more recognizable, I also created a ne w pattern for the paper wraps. The lock up type of the logo depicts an old-world feeling.

S O LU T I O N When couples book their wedding at the Four Seasons Hotel in San Francisco, they are given a souvenir FOR E V E R clock wh i c h rep resen t s t he ete r nal b o n d o f t h e ne wl y w ed s. For a simple yet classical look, I placed a silver a n d b l a c k r o u n d c l o c k w i t h i n a re c ta n g u l a r walnut wood frame. The circular pattern on the face of the clock is inspired by the leaf motif of the Four Seasons Hotel logo, and the simple geometric shapes evoke the timelessness cycle of past, present, and future.

These stores carry a large selection of men’s and women’s accessories, apparel, and shoes. Established in 1987, Jeremys’ goal is to provide customer satisfaction by providing discounted merchandise from a variety of sources. My refinement of the logo included changing the typeface to add interest and also give a more traditional American quality and changing the color from navy to brown to reflect their inviting wood interiors.

S O LU T I O N Mangled is an album of disco style music. When I listen to it at the first time, the image of many people dancing together emerged in my mind. I also spontaneously came up a few words to d e s c r i b e i t , s uc h as e r rat i c , co l o r fu l , fu n , a n d happy. So in this design, I used bright colors a s t h e d o m i n a n t h u e . T h o s e co l o re d s q u a re s help represent a sense of liveliness and playfulness of the music. I to o k p i c tu re s o f a g i r l w i t h m a n y d i f fe re n t poses. The design of the girl’s “mangled” legs are filled with pink and blue, resonating with the colors on the squares and the name of the band. Altogether, the color-filled “mangled” l eg s and t h e s y m m et r i cal arra n gem en t o f t he very same girl add a bit more fun to the design, which tells a lot about the tone of their music.

S O LU T I O N Hainan Airlines was established in October 1989. HNA is an airline headquartered in Haikou, China. I t i s t h e l arge s t p r i vate l y o wn ed a ir t ra n sp o r t company and the fourth largest airline in terms o f f l e e t s i z e i n C h i n a . I t o p e ra t e s s c h e d u l e d domestic and international ser vices on 500 routes from Hainan and nine locations on the mainland, as well as charter ser vices. The original Logo of Hainan Airline contains the co l o r b l ue wh i l e t h e c ur re nt l o go is red a n d y e l l o w. H o we v e r, H ai nan i s a n isl a n d wit h t he great ocean view, therefore I want to bring the blue back to express the sense of ocean. The current logo takes the roc originated from the abstract figure of peacock , so I refined the peacock and took the wings of peacock as the secondary graphic, in order to bring the whole branding a new phenomena.
