Lorelei Chai logo, packaging and marketing collateral.This client worked closely with me to infuse her brand with all thethings she connected with. She wanted an illustrative style thatcommunicated her surfer, holisitc and green/organic brand. I de-veloped many different styles for her, finally deciding on a typo-graphical logo with a small illustrated flower and an illustratedimage all lending a nod to her Hawaiin roots and island lifestyle.
Synergy Fitness and Training Solutions logo, e-book covers and marketing collateral.This client was a good friend and co worker who wanted to take her expertise and dedication to fitnessand holistic wellness to the next level. She wanted her brand logo to embody her overall lifestyle philosophy:wellness, balance and their synchronicity --- a holisitc and balanced lifestyle through fitness well being.We started with developing the brush stroke; a symbol that took influences from her eastern practices andthat actively represented both male | female, alpha | omega, body | mind | and spirit. The logo rotation andvariation is intentional. The purple logo symbolizes mind | spirit and transcendence. The dark gray logosymbolizes body | strength and athleticism. Two symbol representations together convey the balancing ofopposites typically involved in wholistic living.
