Botoneria.com – Logo and website design for a Colombian button manufacturer

Botoneria - LogoBotoneria Ltda. (formerly known as La Piacentina) is a button manufacturer in Bogota, Colombia.

They asked me to design a new logo for them and to develop a simple website to showcase their work and production possibilities.

The new logo was inspired by the unique mixture of creativity and technical know-how that characterizes them.

Club Alpine Mulhouse – CTC logo

The Mulhouse fraction of the french Club Alpine asked me to design a logo for a new campaign they were implementing called the Cellule Transport en Commun – CTC (Shared Transportion Cell), which encouraged their club members to use shared transportation means to the climbing trips organized by the club.

I made these two proposals. The first one is a playful reference to the word cell in a biological sense, while giving it a transportation connotation by the shape of a bus being recognized within the cell.

The second one was more to the point and was inspired in traffic signs.

Mexico2 – Logo

Mexico 2 was a proposed new business citadel to be constructed in the heart of Mexico which would become a new focus of economic importance for the whole of the Americas.

At 3D capacity, we were approached to work on the visualization of the project and as part of it I designed this logo. It is based on the idea of the new citadel being a focus point of the Americas and as can be seen the X is an abstraction of a map of the entire continent. The number 2 is placed as superscript to show that Mexico 2 is not merely seen as a second version of something but as an exponential enhancement of the current status. The colours used are the national colours of Mexico (namely red, white and green). The X2 can also be used as a separate image that still conveys the proposed message without including the text Mexico on it as can be seen to the left.

Imagine – an exercise on visual corporate identity

Imagine - 01During a course at the TU Delft as part of my Industrial Design Engineering BSc., we were asked to work in a design assignment in a group as if we were an actual design studio working for a given client.

As part of the exercise, we had to develop a corporate identity for our studio and use it at all times during the course’s process.

I designed a logo, website, powerpoint starting screen, business cards and even a promotional gift (a mug).

VirtueleMaquette.nl – Logo and website

The Virtual Maquette (virtuele maquette in Dutch) is 3D capacity‘s main product, and they wanted to make a simple separate website with a logo of it’s own, in which they could show the benefits of the virtual models through a presentation video.

Colombiactiva logo

Colombiactiva Logo - horizontalThe Colombiactiva Foundation is a non-profit organization, established in March 2007 in Delft, The Netherlands. The Foundation was established by a group of young professionals that work as volunteers, and are aware of the social realities of Colombia. The group feels the responsibility and the compromise to take action to reduce poverty, lack of opportunities and the indifference of people towards these problems.

3D capacity Logo

3D capacity is a company specialized in the field of 3D outsourcing. Their logo reflects how they create 3D solutions that perfectly fit their client’s needs.

3D capacity logo - FINAL

A little explanation on what the logo stands for:

  • The largest part of the segmented ring represents the client and their current infrastructure.
  • The smallest part represents the solutions delivered by 3D Capacity, which are a perfect fit for the client’s needs.
  • Both together they form a closed ring (a whole), a shape representing the clients organization becoming more solid and complete (thanks to our help).
  • The bigger part of the ring also forms the shape of a ‘C’ for ‘capacity’
  • Both shapes are clearly 3D to represent the nature of our products and solutions.
  • A one-point pespective is used for the ring to make it look more massive.
  • The font is custom made, simple and modern looking giving the logo a touch of uniqueness.

Hong Kong Design Institute – Logo competition

The Hong Kong Design Institute held an international competition to design their new logo. Every individual could enter up to 3 different proposals that reflected the values and interests the Design institute seeks to promote.
The following are the 3 proposals that I submitted to the competition.

HDKI - Logo 1

This logo is both an abstraction of the letters H and K and of a human figure that symbolizes how the people are central to the design practice in general and how the students are the institute’s biggest asset.

DSVV Punch – 10 years logo

Punch - 01Punch is a student sport union in delft and in the year 2005 they were celebrating a decade as owners of their own ‘boat-bar’.

They asked me to design a logo  for the celebration, which could be used in different types of print material, such as flyers, posters and even beer glasses.

The logo was made in a single color to allow for a flexible use in different media, and of course, the 10 years anniversary and the boat were central in the design.

You can see an example of one of the beer glasses underneath.

TweenSense logo

TweenSense is a company where I used to work which was specialised in interactive 3D environments for architectural plans. They needed a redesign of their logo that would reflect on the nature of their business.

I designed this logo as an upgrade on  TweenSense’s previous logo (an orange cube), by giving it a sketchy look that can be associated to hand made sketches of 3D solids which is typical in the architectural design world. It is combined with a font used typically in basic print material such as blueprints.

RusLan logo

RusLan is a Russian translations office in the Netherlands. they were in need of a new corporate image for which I designed a new logo and business cards. I also helped with the lay-up design for the website which was finally set up by my friend Igor Rust.

AdrenalyZ – new logo

AdrenalyZ is a new company organizing extreme-sports vacations in South Africa. A new logo that reflected risk, dynamism and adventure was needed.
