Uncontained Life Logo Design (process)

Uncontained Life is a ” a multi-media travel and lifestyle website devoted to Socially Responsible Local-level Tourism”. Here’s a walk through my process in coming up with a unique combination mark for them.

I started with good old fashion pen and paper. This image is actually a combined scan of several pages of sketching. I was trying to free-associate the name. At this stage I was keeping the self-editing to a minimum. See the “spilled milk” concept? Weird.



Using the hand sketches as reference, I began to “sketch digitally. There is actually an intermediate stage here: I made a list of type faces that I thought lent themselves to the name.

There are more intermediates, but in the end I presented these 8 images to the client. I thought they ran a gamut of conceptually.

The clients liked the snail concept. I sent a few color options and landed on this pairing. Voila!

    Neat to see the whole process! One of my personal favorites is the caged bird. The snail concept works great, though! And I love the final product colours.
