arboleda logo

the design idea

the concepts behind this brand were associated to nature and astrology.

the first concept, nature, represents the connection between people as if they were trees that interconnect though their roots, networking, sharing experiences and helping each other grow.

the second concept, astrology, is portrayed with the sun and stars at the bottom of the logo, representing that we’re the reflection of what’s written in the skies.

the feel

the client was looking for a grainy, handmade feel, which to me sounded like the perfect opportunity to work with linocut.

after we agreed on the overall shape the logo would take, i carved two of the final options on linoleum.

it was a fun and inspiring process: taking special care on each gouge stroke while thinking about how the print would turn out.

the results

results were great! they helped us explore the grain from the perspective of the materials in the paper used for printing.

using illustrator to vectorise the physical result of the print, we were able to remove the excess noise leaving behind a cleaner logo.

finally, the client decided to go with neutral colours, such as black and beige, to keep the tone muted, allowing it to be paired with black and white images.

each element within the logo can be used independently as a representation of the brand.
these are some logo variations and examples of independent use.
