Putting on the finishing touches...
Taylor Jayne Hayes is a fashion designer based in New York. Together, we developed a new logo, website, and brand identity to match the simplicity and elegance of her designs.
Taylor's philosophy is all about minimal, elegant, and timeless. When designing her logo, I was instantly drawn to the Lust Didone typeface. Inspired by Bodoni and Didot, long-time favorites of the fashion industry, its dramatic contrast is the source of its cosmopolitain elegance while its hairline serifs make it modern and youthful. I chose Snell Roundhand for the New York byline which pairs nicely with Lust.
The color palette is inspired by Taylor's designs. Primary colors are used for headers, some text, illustrations, and brand identity material while secondary colors are for accents and backgrounds. The colors are designed to mix and match fluidly.
When asked which medium she gravitated towards most, digital or print, Taylor immediately replied "print." I see this gravitation in Taylor's other creative endeavors. From handwritten notes to keepsake polaroids to collages on walls, her work and style is best displayed on paper. So when it came to Taylor's website, I wanted people to feel as though they're flipping through the pages of a physical portfolio. I approached this design process the way I would for print design: grid layouts, overlapping elements, and a paper-like feel. All while adhering to Taylor's minimal, elegant, and timeless philosophy.Visit the website
