BRANDING: SIGN / LOGO / STATIONERY DESIGN
BRAND IDENTITY FOR TEXAS JUNK CO
INTERNATIONAL AWARD WINNING DESIGN
Created a handmade branding system suitable for Texas Junk Co, inspired by secondhand products, hardware, western goods, vintage Texana items and cowboy boots. The shop is considered a Houston Gem and a must visit shop. The logo was inspired by vintage items, all is handmade and one of a kind. The copper foil stamp is perfectly imperfect on the snake, with a slight of grunge texture. The sign is handmade painted using copper paint on reclaimed wood, natural patina which has aged for over 30 years.

HOW International Award
Merit Award 2016
For a brand identity, every detail matters and has a meaningful reason for usage; don't just add something to make it look "pretty." The design must be timeless, have a purpose and tell a story.
