Logo and Branding: Les OrenetesPosted: September 21, 2012
Les Orenetes is a fashion boutique located in Torredembarra, a small town in the Catalonia region of Spain. The boutique’s identity, created by visual communication and graphic design studio Mucho, is a lovely mix of light, geometric single line weight typography and monogram with subtle flourishes and a rich mix of hand-drawn illustrative, calligraphic and watercolour detail.
The logo-type’s combination of square, unilateral serifs and ball terminals, broadly spaced characters and a monochromatic colour palette deliver an interesting juxtaposition of classic and contemporary cues, an underlying sense of high fashion and a simplicity that appears appropriately reflective of both the practical and statement nature of modern clothing. In contrast the hand drawn water coloured illustrative detail offers an organic, energetic and spontaneity while also introducing the themes of craft and creativity through a nice mix of tone and texture, bound together by a circular composition reflective of the monogram. The calligraphic ornithological footprints add a slightly playful sensibility across the tags while the many strokes of the feather works well as a visual metaphor for the fine thread work, weave and natural high quality of premium fabrics.
