The Personal Brand Project


This was a simple brief for my own initials. I wanted to carve out a new career for myself in design and thought that the J and P fitted nicely together with a stamp design.

The raw outline of the JP

As a child I always enjoyed playing with a puzzle game called Tangram. It is an old Chinese wooden puzzle game where 7 shapes fit together to make various shapes and outlines.

I started off by filling in the pieces and added a circle around it. For some reason I chose purple as the design colour but a quick search for colour psychology suggests that maybe this wasn’t a good choice as it is often used for confectionary and educational purposes!

I felt that the purple was a bit too harsh and also the edges were very straight so I softened them with a crayon effect and added in a cream background. The outline was in a dark green with the circle being a lighter shade of green.
