ILLINOIS SCIENCE COUNCIL
This rebrand was done for Illinois Science Council with a team of four designers. ISC is an organization with the motto, "science for the curious". They were in need of an updated brand that is inviting and accessible.
I created this mark to allude to science, but not one specific area of science. It is a play off their current atom motif, but is meant to be more broad. This mark can represent chemical structures, biological compounds or ideas branching off in different directions; everyone who looks at it will see something different. This is the final logo chosen by our client.
Marks that didn't
make the cut:
After numerous rounds of logo roughs, revisions and Illustrator files, we wound up with a massive pile of science-y logos. These are only a few of the roughs I created throughout the design process.
Using abstract science-themed imagery, we really wanted to focus on ISC's tagline: Science for the curious.
