The Mission

Mayra wants a visual identity instilling interest and trust to compete with the higher end, quality clothing brands such as Gucci, Harrolds, Chanel, and many more.


Objective and Solution
We were given three days to create a logo within reflects the handmade and luxurious nature of the brand. We would then create a homepage design and a half A4 page advert to be used in a print publication. We were allowed to use stock images that is sourced from the web and lorem ipsum as body text.

In response to this brief, I set out to create a high-end visual identity that was luxurious, unique, and contemporary; and visualise current design trends. The serif typeface was selected to give a sophisticated look that appeals to the target market. It has been slightly edited to add a premium feel to its design and the images that have been sourced from the web are carefully selected to suit the sophisticated tone of the brand. This was further expanded into creating a background pattern using the letter ‘M’ from the logo. The products are all handmade from Alpaca wool which gave the slogan ‘Handcrafted From Nature.
