IMAGES FROM THE CLIENT:
IMAGES FOR MY REFERENCE: After discussion with the client, where she showed my her social media and discussed her aesthetic and previous work I settled on these images as my inspiration.
I presented two quite different ideas to the client, however in both, Maria's hair/wig was a big inspiration as I wanted to incorporate that into the final logo. The client preferred the "cut & paste", William Morris inspired design but we both agreed that a couple of colour options were required.
THIS LED ME TO THE FINAL LOGO DESIGNS, TAKING A LITTLE FROM COLUMN A, A LITTLE FROM COLUMN B, I PRODUCED THE FOLLOWING 3 LOGO OPTIONS. LATER THE CLIENT CAME BACK TO ME AND ASKED ME TO CHANGE THE NAME FROM MARIA TO YAY MARIA AND THAT'S THE LOGO NOW BEING USED TODAY.
