The logo needed to reflect a young and exciting brand personality with an NYC attitude. Streetwise but professional.
What a great name to work with. Always so exciting to be part of a new brand launch. The client wanted to emphasize the company’s NYC roots and attitude with a visual reference to an iconic New York building. An idea just landed in my head. The “D” for Defiant with an NY building as its vertical stroke. I took a picture with my iPhone of some quick sketches and sent it via text message. Approved!. I kept cleaning the logo, fine-tuning every little line stroke, creating dimension. Too much. Too clean. The client pulled me back closer to my original hand sketch. “I like the chaos energy of the original sketch” she said. She was right.
