IDENTITY
The identity for the range is Just my type which is an intentional reference to both the typographic design aesthetic of the range as well as the romantic conotation. The logo is adapted depending on its application. It can function as text with a small heart motif, or inside a heart motif for example on the back pages of the greetings cards.

The Gin Joint Valentines Range

1/6

CONCEPT
Brief Create an illustrated type-based visual identity for The Gin Joint; a new bar that specializes in gin. Background Gin has notoriously had a rocky relationship with the British, with fashionable highs and notorious lows; adoration followed by controversy. However, over the past year there has been a gin revival becoming attractive again to a less traditionally younger audience making it once again fashionable. The identity should cater to the new contemporary crowd whilst still maintaing and reflecting some nostalgic elements of gins history. Target Audience 18-25 year olds who are adventurous, fun seeking in search of new flavours and experiences. Solution Create an identity that reflects both past and contemporary styles of lettering. Deliverables include three styles of lettering, menu designs, house gin brand design, bar accessories, exterior signage and contextual illustrations.
