Our Solution

Inspired by the simplicity of a pencil – we created a typographic logo which formulated the structure of a red pencil. It was designed to trigger the tactile experience and emotion of picking up a pencil and getting involved!  We used a simple sans serif font with geometric forms and subtle touches of humanist warmth to reflect the collaborative approach of Red Pencil.  Our designed used red, graphite, cedar within the colour palette.
