The Client LOVED It!

We had one of those rare meetings this afternoon, the one where the client loves the first piece shown and doesn’t even want to see the other options we’d put together for them. In truth they chose well. They chose a design that is simple, but perfectly suited to their business.

Funny, it’s not what they *thought* they wanted.

I was up all night pulling my hair fighting to create the pieces the client never saw, pieces that were derivative of what they were “certain they wanted.”:)

Twice the lead said that we far exceeded his expectations. Hitting a home run at the start, is a good way to begin a relationship.

Now the unchosen designs which are already built out, will be added to the design pool. They can applied to another client down the road if/when the look/structure is appropriate.So, not wasted time

They were sure happy campers, and that my friends, is NEVER a bad thing. It’s bank. Especially if they, like these guys, own a slew of companies, and if the lead is sold to us as “difficult.”

Also, when we got out of the meeting, they immediately texted a big thank you to our team lead thanking up for our work. Gotta love that.

Nice way to end the week. I’m drinking wine to celebrate and will likely be asleep in, 15 minutes…. zzzzzzzzz

Committee of Organ Donation in LebanonLOGO Design © DDB Dubai
Brief: To design the corporate identity for an organ donation initiative. Since  it was our only tool of communication, the design had to instantly  convey the message of organ donation. Whatever we designed had to strike  an emotional chord and subtly prompt people to open up to the idea.
Creative execution: When you pledge an organ, you gift someone a new life. We simply brought this insight to life through our design.

Dana doesn’t use stencils or a projector to aid her drawings, she  maintains an almost-perfect notion that this is a one of a kind,  fleeting moment in the life of a word, which will probably be soon  erased (how poetic!). She is also a part of Louise Fili Ltd., the amazingly prolific lettering studio, where she helps to create some of the world’s most lovely type work.

Weedrobes Camellia Countessa
A wearable garment made from camellia flowers, lilac, yucca, laurel leaves, willow branches, and thorns.
Made with fruits, weeds, flowers, and  leaves, ‘Weedrobes’ is the delightful series of meticulously detailed, perishable gowns, coats, and suits by Canadian environmental artist Nicole Dextras. Striking a careful balance between style and commentary, the message behind Weedrobes is aimed squarely at the not-always-so-sustainable practices of the fashion industry, while also redefining the perceived immortality of haute couture.
Dextras’ garments begin life as plants harvested from a variety of places, ranging from areas affected by  invasive species to specimens from Dextras’ own garden.
After constructing her pieces, Dextras photographs each Weedrobe with a model, and they are sent out to “engage the public” by interacting with passerby. Afterwards, each garment is left to be ‘reclaimed’ and to decompose naturally.
