I recently had the opportunity to work with Sarah Winkler, who just started her own custom glassworks company. Sarah specializes in beautiful works of art using stained glass as her medium. When she decided to take her glass art business full time recently, she needed a logo and branding to reflect her stunning work. Sarah loves pastels, pinks and yellows, and wanted her logo to really capture the essence of stained glass. Check out the project here:
I utilized the mood board to bring together the feeling of the brand we wanted to embody with Cira Studio. You'll notice a lot of geometric shapes in this mood board. Because Sarah works primarily with stained glass windows, we emphasized the geometric, angular characteristics of that art form. The deer represents the animal portion that Sarah wanted to incorporate into her logo. For the text portion of the logo, we went with a legible but unique script that really ties the whole logo together at the base.
LOGO DESIGN + BRANDING BOARD
PRINT DESIGN ITEMS
We created print items for Cira Studio including business cards and letterhead. The business cards were kept soft and feminine, with one of the signature watercolor patterns as the background. The textures inside the Cira Studio logo were all created by hand with watercolors to emulate a real stained glass window.
