Since my last rebrand, carried out in 2008, I have completely changed my processes, the style of work I do and now spend a lot of time writing and reviewing design for BP&O.

I’m away today and tomorrow so thought I would take the opportunity to write a brief explanation of the BP&O logo-mark. The idea developed around the fusion of a BP and O with the intention of forming a new and unique letter that would visually analogise the three themes resolved into a single blog and also express my aspirations to deliver original perspectives and content. The mark was developed as a contemporary take on a traditional monogram which I felt suited the personal opinions that underpinned each article. The roundel is a fairly straightforward representation of the global nature of the designers and agencies that feature on the site, while the simple colour palette delivers a stamp-like aesthetic, which, I hope will come to represent good reviews and interesting projects.
