New identity, banners and postcard created for Fresh Streams. Including a style sheet making it easier for their developer to align their website to the brand. ( https://freshstreams.net ).  Always a pleasure working with these folks.

Why a rough logo works….

Why a rough logo works….

New logo for G&M Davies Sawmill.

Sawmills. Rough wood, noise, graft, hands-on… so what sets G&M Davies apart from other sawmills?

Their ability to maximise the use of the logs they’re cutting because of the larger saws they run… Larger saws = bigger blocks = less waste. (They actually use the ‘offcuts’ to create different products, heightening their carbon neutral credentials). The cross section view of the trunk of the tree has the cleaner and more accurate edges, where the block is cut,  to show precision compared with the natural irregularity of a tree.

So, an accurate process within a ‘rough’ world.

 

 

 

Time to act

Time to act

New identity for Acts. Kindness builds community.

“We believe demonstrating kindness is one way to encourage community and strengthen society. Both to the person acting and the person being assisted are uplifted via the process”.

The Acts team have concluded that few see their place as part of a larger community / society, and if they do, they need encouraging /enabling to find some expression to their concerns. So they have set up Acts to encourage and enable people to play the part they see needs playing, or by doing the thing that they see needs doing within their sphere of influence. Uniquely, they aim to enable the individual’s personal response to the need they see. Creating a better society by enabling the individual.

The logo reflects notions of gathering as community (both happy and sad being welcome) and include blank spaces for people to interact with it themselves by filling in an expression

They have 3 types of act categories
Random – How can you make someone’s day a bit better?
Purposeful  This is about helping people with specific needs at a particular time.
Living and giving  Encouragements to think about how to live out kindness in everyday life. It could be that the thing you can give is your time and your skills to run an event. One act starts a ripple effect as another person experiences it.

The brief identified the notions of: Community, welcoming, warm, local, friendly, home made, personable, reliable, all age, professionally run.
Promoting kindness and building the community, Make a small difference to make a bigger difference. Its very human, more physical that cyber, communications aim to be face to face where possible. With a feel for being more Playful than Serious / Necessity not luxury / Approachable / More Light than Serious / More Home-made than High-tech / More Raw than Refined / All age.

We ended up with a logo that people can interact with (fill in a face on the blank circle), and reflects activity and community. We used colours based on the post it note colours to give the idea of small, quick acts in the same way a quick not would be left for someone.

 

All elements of the identity are gathered for easy reference on a style sheet.
