Branding Logowork Dhdzn

  1. 1. D I A N A H O WA R D D E S I G N every branding project has a similar process to that of finding the best proportions for a great recipe: it’s a matter of balance: balancing the message between the old and familiar and the new and unexpected; and especially by exploring the emphasis on one of the company’s virtues over another to convey a clear brand position. To show you a specific example of how i can create a variety of different logos where i visually explore branding balance, i want to share with you some layouts taken from a presentation i recently did for aligned investments, a group of sustainability-oriented developers, who need- ed to brand a new kind of food emporium they named “green Market Lane”, the first of which was to be established in albany, Ca. The creative brief was thus: Market: Local, neighborhood, foodies all ages but target 35-55; both sexes; after-work place 2-income families; educated; first-adaptors Tone: not pretentious, sincere Conveying: Honesty; integrity; artisanal food; fun; organic; responsible/sustainable; local; comfortable; place to hang out; quality application: should be adaptable to signage (for the site) and packaging (for custom food products), as well as the usual web and print purposes. This logo will also be used for future green Market Lane sites in other locations. The first 5 pages show various solutions i presented; the last page shows the logo they chose. 1 © 2009 Diana HowarD Design

  3. 3. going in the opposite direction, i hand-lettered this idiosyncratic logo to convey the casual quality they also sought 3 © 2009 Diana HowarD Design

  5. 5. green lane green Because they plan to have a chain of these green Market Lanes, and want to attract investors, i created this more corporate/conventional layout. 5 © 2009 Diana HowarD Design

  7. 7. i adapted #4 to create the final logo. aligned investments felt that this one best expressed the balance they wanted between conveying friendliness (for the neighborhood) and dependability (for the investors and future growth). 7 © 2009 Diana HowarD Design
