    / SOLUTION /

    SIMPLISTIC, TIMELESS AND CLASSIC The solution is a strong, bold and simplistic. I have deliberately made it simple in shape so that the logo can be used on a variety of clothing and surroundings, it´s versatile. This linear type of logos are classic type treatment that stands the sands of time. 
    STANDS OUT The dynamic and monogram logo is a one of kind. It stands out. 
    EASY TO READ, EASY TO USE The logo is consciously pretty bold and simple in shape in order to make it both legible and easy to implement in all sorts of media and on all sorts of material.
    UNIQUE An all hand-drawn logo ensures that it is unique.
