July 24 - September 14

It really was not part of my original plan to have so many versions of this Brand Identity. However the process was so emotional that I decided to publish all the versions of this Brand Identity. I want to believe that emotions are something you can transfer into your creation, at least this is what I think I usually do :) In my opinion any created object (logo for example) communicates with the world mainly on emotional level, the emotions are like soul that was given to object by his creator, god or designer it is quite same for me.

The centre motive of this work can be described in one word – Crown. I tried hard to create shape that visually reminds crown.

How this publication is organized

The most interesting is usually at the end, so I decided to keep descending order of the versions in this publication. It is why some of the things that well explained at the bottom of the page, may not appear again at the top of the page.

Purpose

This publication intended to show the working process on BMAD rebranding from it's start to the final point. The final version of this work is here.

Crown. Second sketch of the logotype

Yes, yes – letter “M” needs to be placed before the letter “A”. Interesting why I made this mistake, probably because at this stage it is not really important – M = 2A.

Visual identity. Second version

This and the first versions of the identity are based on the usage of the font created by Chequered Ink – UK design studio. The “B” logo is a true letter B of this font. This is a good example of how important can be the right choice of the font type for the brand.
