I've been a bit of a sucker for nice mountain bikes, and have looked fondly to local frame manufacturers Morewood to see what they get up to. Having decided that their old logo needed a bit of a spruce us, Sploosh Digital were commissioned to create the new logotype and look... and this is what they came up with.
The original logotype, designed by Trevor Swart about 8 years previously, was looking dated. The new brand needed to reflect the changes that are going on at Morewood Bikes, without making a complete departure and alienating their existing fan-base. The studio worked on the project collaboratively over the period of a few months, first refining the logotype, and then tackling the mark – which is without a doubt the most challenging hurdle of any rebranding project. Let them know what you think.

1stpage When Dima and Dimitrios decided to open their new hair boutique at the exclusive, five star Cellars Hohenort Hotel, they needed a stylish corporate identity that would reflect their unique hair design experience. Their initials, D and D, lent themselves to a nifty device that created the shape of a stylised pair of scissors. This logo, along with other hair-themed design elements, was then rolled out across the entire CI. The campaign was created by designer Charl Kruger and coprywriter Michael Pearson, with the help of their colleagues at Net#work BBDO Cape Town.
