If you’ve been following us for a while, you’ll know we love working with local small businesses. We were approached last year by The Modern Plant Company to design and set up a Shopify website for their growing business.
During our initial discussions, we decided that a branding package would be beneficial as well. For a previous pop-up event, the client had some business cards that were quickly done up by a colleague, but they did not entirely fit with the image she had in mind for the company.
We did some brand exploration based on what types of interiors and home designs the client was most drawn to (clean, minimalist, modern, Scandinavian interiors). This included a mood board, preliminary colour palettes, and font choices.
Initial Logo Concepts
Initial sketches explored using succulent leaves as decorative elements, a snake plant silhouette, and redrawing the monstera leaf from the original business card.
The client liked the monstera leaf concept the most. We adjusted the colour palette to be a little brighter, and applied the final branding to business cards, plant tags, and gift bags.
For the website, we were able to find a simple Shopify template that was easily customizable to match the colours and fonts of The Modern Plant Company’s new branding. We also created icons for the plant care section under each product’s description.
