logo/identity: the california project

ceft_and_company_california_project_logo_design

logo and identity design for the california project.

the california project is one of several cross disciplinary creative efforts by brent haas. it seeks to create a series of limited production pieces that intend to question the relationship between man and object. the client asked ceft and company to create an identity that reflects this duality of man’s desire for objects and the inherent wisdom that tell him to reject it.

ceft and company focused its logo design on the idea of “clash of contradictions”. the two voices, one – the desire to collect objects, the other, the wish to free one of worldly possessions.

the tracking of the letters are based on the desire of being legible yet at the same time hidden, this synergy creates a highly reflective symbol that is minimal yet complex. business cards – print detail of metallic copper foil stamping on matte heavy stock.

ceft and company new york’s visual identity for the california project is based on the notion that the consumer has the option to seek for the meaning or path, hence the re-arrangement of the letters in the logo typeface and the nature of objects created. view all work related to this project.
