During a recent visit to my hometown of Dunedin, New Zealand, I connected with a local artist and close friend, Rob. We discussed creating a brand for his private tattoo studio. We looked at his vision for the business and through two strategy sessions we set the goal to: Build a personal and professional brand which enables a higher standard of art and clientele.
It was a collaborative process with rob providing input and sketches. I facilitated strategy, shot video & stills for the website and produced design deliverables.
Working with Rob's sketch of a neo-gothic 'L' letterform, I refined the shapes and added the business name to produce a final logo. Its bold shapes contrast an otherwise minimal visual style. It is used across all business touch points as a complete logo or standalone letterform.
The Linear Tattoo website features a fullscreen video as the landing page. It is coloured to fit the visual identity and brings the viewer into the intimate setting of the private studio right away.
