Branding & Identity | Logo Design

I’m thrilled to share this one! Earlier this year, I was contacted by the talented Ingrid Brooks to craft a logo for her independent art & fashion business, Mi’kmaq Designs.

Ingrid has been sewing regalia’s for over a decade. She is a professional in Native Studies, having attended the College of Art and Design in Fredericton, NB. She’s trained with Joe John Sanipass and the late Louie Clair for basket weaving and has also completed a program with Diana Witherall for Mi’kmaq Porcupine Quill Art.

With art exhibitions under her belt, as well as having work displayed in Nova Scotian museums, Ingrid’s hard work hasn’t gone unnoticed. She recently showcased an original Mi’kmaq Quill Basket Dress at the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France for Indigenous Fashion Week.

For the Mi’kmaq Design’s logomark, I created an interpretation of the double-curve motif using a four-section grid with a circular center for the desired shape. The mirrored reflection of the petroglyph inspired motif creates a Victorian-style monoline wreath, making for a timeless & memorable combination both familiar & intriguing. The rose & dark rose gold paired with the fresh mint green accent compliments the logomark as a whole, proving you don’t always need to follow a traditional colour palette to capture and convey the essence of your inspiration for the end product.
