  • The general the designs direction is to bring simplicity, functionality, and emotion, which have always been the equation for a successful brand. The identity will have the look of boutique along with the feel of fun and dependence from mainstream products. The design will carry and represent the very spirit of an inventive public relation’s firm.
  • From the beginning sketch to the end product we made quite a few minor adjustments and a couple major ones. Although no drop shadows, embossing or gradients are used, the final logo uses color, line and shape to set the attitude for the boutique public relations firm.
    The imagery varies throughout the logo. The hummingbird symbolizes many different concepts and superstitions. Because of its speed and quick movements, the hummingbird is known as a messenger and stopper of time. It is also a symbol of love, joy, and beauty. The Key represents the unlocking of any closed door. The stamp is the representation for travel and not to stay stationary for long periods of time. The three cents is a lucky number. The number three in Chinese, san, is considered lucky because it sounds like sheng (生), or “give birth.” Traditionally, good fortune comes in the shape of 3’s.
