Who Are The Gumboots?
The ‘Gumboots’ are a gathering of new and old mates from different corners of Scotland. Select sides such as ours are not always welcomed by the “traditionist” competitions as they prefer Club representation, but what we have enables the essence of rugby to truly come through, the purist of rugby through friendship and enjoyment of the game.
Logo Design Newcastle
It is not often Dark Design Graphics is given such a detailed brief for a brand design, having been given a visual graphic of what they wanted in their design, it was an opportunity not to be missed!
With an emphasis on retro Branding and taking inspiration from old school heavy metal visual designs and illustrations we started putting some sketches together creating a feel for the design we were developing.
What we really needed to think about was how to keep all the elements together in the design without making it too complex. Working with our client we adjusted a few of the brands features to give a better fit in the overall visual identity. Continuing as with all our projects, once we were happy with the layout of the design the next step was putting it into illustrator and making a few final adjustments.
This was definitely one of the more enjoyable branding projects that we got to work with, we are all looking forward to seeing the designs on the clubs rugby shirts and we will be updating this soon with the teams facebook page.
You have been able to capture our requirements in such a way that our initial idea has been transferred into exactly what we wanted. We chose your services from the competition because your informative website and what also helped was to watch the ‘real time’ drawing video.
Your first contact and helpful explanation of the process reinforced our decision up front.
