Challenge Finding a way to illustrate the variety of people who make up Inframe's collaborative community.
Solution To illustrate the variety of people apart of the brand; I designed a mark with a few simple elements. Each element represents a different part of the collaborative community that makes up the brand.
Inframe Research Image
Story I was inspired to create this project because I see a need for artist to be able to collaborate with subjects who have large followings, and vice versa. I also see a need for people to support with public figures they follow. To satisfy these needs I created a brand that provides direct support to an innovative community of artists, and subjects.

Design Process I started this project with the idea of collaboration and a few sketches incorporating slants. This developed into using an italic font, and a slanted box in the mark. The name, Inframe, was chosen from a group of names I brainstormed; it highlights the collaboration between the artist and the subject. The tagline, “support what’s inside,” represents the artists supporting the subjects with artistic representaion. It also invites users to support the artwork. I proceeded to sketch and develop the mark and used a slanted box to literally represent the frame and match with the italic text.
I designed protoypes of the stationary using early versions of the mark, while I continued refining it. With the mark and stationary complete I wireframed the web pages. I experimented with the brands colors as well during this time. I chose a four color scheme to improve the contrast of different elements in the logo and in my layouts. Then I finished refining the web pages and designed a style guide using the elements from the stationary and web collateral.
Fonts & Color
Dyno bold is a clean, bold, san serif font. I chose Dyno because it attracts Inframe’s sophisticated, friendly, and innovative audience. The italics convey movement which resonates with the younger audience Inframe aims to attract as well.
Exo 2 contrasts Dyno sans because it is thinner, and more ornate. This contrast brings more sophistication to the wordmark, by adding variety. In addition Exo 2 is often used in all caps and with extra tracking to exaggerate the contrast.
Brown represents the envirornments where artwork is made, and artist subjects live. The tan represents the frame. Light blue represents the subjects, and bright green represents the users.
