Brand identity design
Website design + development
Primary + Secondary Logos
Pictured below are the primary, secondary, and submark logo designs. The submark is a simple, clean monogram with “Tolkien-esque” details. The font used for the logo is called New Spirit and was selected because it looks both friendly and professional with rounded, slanted letters and subtle serifs.
The logos are intentionally minimalist and timeless. They are flexible enough to represent both sides of Patrick’s personal brand identity: the assertive businessman and the fun, adventurous author. The result is a single, cohesive visual identity for Patrick’s personal brand that can grow with him over time.
The color palette features natural shades of green, brown, and beige. They are warm and masculine and help to visually convey the client’s brand values: generosity, accessibility, impact, positivity, and adventure.
I designed Patrick’s custom website in Adobe XD and developed it using the Divi theme for WordPress. The website includes 7 pages: Home, About, Author, Entrepreneur, Consulting, Blog, and Contact.
The website features large images, subtle animations, and big, bold typography. The copy was written by the client based on wireframes and prompts that I provided. The tone is professional, friendly, and humorous.
