Design 80 – Marnea Logo Design



Sometimes client has specific image that they want in their logo design. And don’t be surpised if they showed you their own logo sketches. And frankly speaking, I am pretty fine with that. Not to say this makes my job easier (LOL), but it will speed a logo design process tremendously.



My client, well she is a creative person as you can tell from her cute sketches that she made all by herself. When she handed it to me, she specifically told me to follow her ideas but don’t be afraid to explore. She picked logo design no.2 and no.3, which are my favs already. So I drew them using Adobe Illustrator and added bit of  twists to the original idea and boy she loves it!


Took only few days to complete (I was busy with travelling ☺️) and as you can see below, I am sharing you some design process before we went to finalize the logo design. My own pick is Option 3, but she really like the first one. It is a wardrobe concept with Big letter ‘M’ in the middle.


Design 73 – Tapak (Logotype)



What is Logotype?

A wordmark, word mark or logotype is usually a distinct text-only typographic treatment of the name of a company, institution, or product name used for purposes of identification and branding.


Examples can be found in the graphic identities of the Government of Canada, FedEx, Google, and Wikipedia. The organization name is incorporated as a simple graphic treatment to create a clear, visually memorable identity. The representation of the word becomes a visual symbol of the organization or product.
