& the slipper still fits

i made this - empowerment project

Lately at work I've been a part of some pretty awesome projects, and, luckily, I get to share this one with you. The Empowerment Project is a documentary about ordinary women doing extraordinary things. The film was shown on campus and to promote it, I got to make some fun internal advertising.

2 north & south wallpapers

As promised last week, here are two wallpapers featuring the Marlborough Mills logos. Click on the image to download the full-size version. Enjoy!

It's been gloomy around Lancaster lately, with all the snow and grey skies. And often the weather outside reminds me of Gaskell's North & South. So with a few extra hours at my disposal - thank you Jack Frost for the snow - I decided to indulge a little with my favorite adaptation. As Mr. Thornton talked in my ear about cotton clothes and fair masters, I crafted some logos for our favorite mill.

For these logos I focused on the traits of Thornton - traditional, hard working, simple and clear - and researched Victoria Era type as support. Thus, the strong favoring of serifs. Thus, the decided tagline of "English-Made Cotton". In our adaptation, Thornton doesn't use words like "fine" or "regal" to talk about his cotton; it is good, and good is the appropriate word to him. "Good Cotton" wouldn't sell, but English-made would. Let's just say Mr. Bell had his say.

Wallpapers to come next week.
