High Desert Studio is an art and interior design studio best known for its abstract paintings and ethereal aesthetic. Inspired by the natural landscapes found in the orchard hills of California, HDS founder, Jordan, strikes a harmonious balance of organic textures and earthy pigments to transform blank canvases and homes into tranquil oases.

The Brief:

Develop a brand identity for High Desert Studio that compliments Jordan’s reposeful and earthy art style. Design print and digital elements that serve to enrich the HDS customer experience and overall brand perception whilst highlighting the artwork itself.

Direction No. 1

Earthy Elegance

This direction exudes a laid back luxury that feels upscale without being too polished and perfect. The fractured type motif seen throughout the collateral is meant to capture the essence of the artist’s mind as thoughts and ideas drip onto the canvas. Rejecting the traditional grid, the fluid word layout creates an individual and empowered look. Applied to various textures and laid out with plenty of white space, this direction serves to elevate the art on display without distracting from it.

Direction No. 2

Poetic Prose

This route houses any artwork on display in a gallery-like setting, providing a rustic theme throughout to enhance the peaceful nature of Jordan’s work. The logotype’s serif letter forms create a sense of institution and are contrasted by the light and airy spacing between the letters. The core brand typography combines a serif font to convey the functional structure of the home with a curved sans serif font to reflect the softer side of the soul. The end result is an organic identity with a calm confidence.
