JJ's Barber Shop
Brief from client
This is a practise brief for a local barber who needs a logo for their new shop, they are a high quality luxury barber targeting middle to upper class men
I went with a modern pictoral logo, derived from a J shape. I tried to ensure that the shape of the J was obvious to notice, but not too obvious. I did some testing and asked a friend if they noticed it and they said they did, however I would be interested in knowing if anyone else does. I feel that element of the logo makes it more unique than a generic avatar as this J shape face makes the logo simple and memorable.
As well as this the falling clippings are an element that I have included to try and fight the balance issue that I came into. I wanted to try and keep the J shape as much as I could, however I felt that the logo was inbalanced was a result, which is why I added the clippings as a way to try and balance the logo. The only other idea I had would be to move the 'EST 1995' so that it reads down the side of the face filling the space there.
The font may change, however I felt that the serif style font further portrays the luxury impression which the logo is intended to to.
Any feedback would be amazing, I am trying to improve my logo designs as I am hoping to study Graphic Design at Uni with a foundation course starting in September.
