Description: Logo proposal for start-up loose leaf tea company. The brand's values and messaging themes of freedom of choice & empowerment were heavily inspired by the U.S. civil rights movements of the '60s & '70s. Target audience: People who want to belong to a "tea scene" for like-minded individuals, but don't find themselves aligning with any of the current tea-drinking demographics, and are often dismayed by the negative stigmas surrounding tea. Tone: Should reflect the era, but avoid overly militaristic or psychedelic themes. Should portray boldness & strength, while still being fun, energetic, & youthful. Rationale: Inspired by an iconic hand gesture used to symbolize strength & solidarity throughout the civil rights era and beyond. Imagery of the fist clutching a tea infuser is bold, assertive, and inspires a call to action. Intentionally gritty and homemade, this concept reflects the grassroots nature of old protest signs and political literature which would have been screen printed and hand drawn in a basement field office.

This is absolutely epic Jon!!! The Saul Bass esque treatment is really appropriate here.

...Currently running through your Behance case study & trying to 'maintain'. ;)

While a cool treatment and logo can see this coping a lot of adverse publicity ... and being part of a few blog posts if picked ...

Great development work, but yeah, this solution will do more harm than good.

Hey, thanks for the comments guys.

FWIW, this direction was not picked (although it was a top contender), but Mike & Gareth, I appreciate the feedback, but could you explain what you mean?

The style of the tea infuser and the way the hand is placed looks a little sexual

Wooooow. Yeah, didn't see that. And neither did several other designers with whom I shared all my initial sketches. Ugh. Just goes to show how easy it is for stuff like this to be overlooked.

Oh well, not a big deal, since it wasn't chosen, anyway. But... damn...

Which one did they pick? It looks like you had a ton of great ideas in your sketches.

They went with 04. Need to make some minor minor client-requested tweaks to that one, but will post here on LP after it's done.

Yeah this one would do great for linocut. Gotta update if you do get this linocut done. Would be pretty cool for a print job. I haven't done linocut in years.
