+ New Brand Visions

In a time when logos can be generated by an algorithm, without human interface or discourse, brands can be perceived to be without depth, churned out and stuck on a letterhead. But reinvention of brands needs to be handled carefully, from a human-centric perspective, not creative-first. Brands must evolve, as the world evolves, and so too must those businesses responsible for their ongoing success.
