Power Up Pins Branding Colours

Designing the brand

I believed that the brand design should be simple and easy to recognise with a bold, eye catching color scheme. The main identity of the brand is the "Up" logo which fits into the logotype when the company name is used in full.

Illustrating The Products

There are many well known pop culture references that form a large part of a product range that also includes cute animals, food and slogans. My work starts with a mood board and sketches which when approved are then transferred to Adobe Illustrator where I build the designs for the nickel and enamel layers. The bright, bold identity of the brand continues into my photography of the finished products.

Power Up Pins continues to be a success, not only in the products that it sells but also in winning custom orders from individuals and companies looking for fresh and eye catching products.
