Painter +

Artist SJ Hammack came up with the moniker, Painter + and asked me to create a brand based on her work. With the color, zest and zeal that's apparent in her work, the solution had to be clean and simple to allow the work to speak for itself. 
     The solution came with a contemporary interpretation of a mid-century design and color scheme. The type was kept crisp and in lower case for a more approachable and easily read look. A pattern of an abstracted plus sign adds emphasis to what lies beyond the artist's obvious abilities.
