this is IMPRESSIVE

while I normally reserve this blog to keep you updated on what TINbox has been up to, I felt it was absolutely necessary to give some love to this.
Incredible and completely inspiring work from End of the Line, Distillery Productions, Toby Summerskill and all involved with this project.

TINbox Solutions Re-Brands Beautiful Day Foundation

Beautiful Day Foundation, breast cancer awareness, logo redesign, branding, graphic design, tinboxsolutions TINbox Solutions IncTINbox Solutions, Inc has been blessed to collaborate with the Beautiful Day Foundation, to refresh their logo and begin re-branding initiatives. We are now proud to unveil the completed work!The creative process began a few months ago, when Jane Chai, Director of PR and Marketing, came to TINbox with the proposal to refresh their old logo:

Beautiful Day Foundation Beautiful Day Foundation, TINbox Solutions, breast cancer research

BDFs old logo

Their requests were simple: Maintain the pink, keep the flower (as an homage to the founder) and make the logo feel more contemporary. The design solutions were many, but we all felt the design carried all of the necessary elements to be successful. All it needed was a bit of a “design trimming”. First step was to revamp the font choices. Using a font style that BDF was already particular to, we used the cleaner, more elegant script and Century Gothic as substitutes. The flourishes allowed us to eliminate the excess foliage, as we felt that a solitary flower would be best suited to represent the founder (who succumbed to breast cancer in 2006). We submitted different iterations of this layout, and BDF ultimately went with the featured logo. It will be featured on all of their new marketing initiatives, from a revamped website to apparel and promotional items. TINbox Solutions would like to thank Jane and all of the members of the Beautiful Day Foundation for being wonderful clients. We look forward to working with you further!For more information about the Beautiful Day Foundation, please visit their site at beautifuldayfoundation.org

TINbox Solutions is proud to have been tasked with designing their 2010/2011 catalogs, as well as their print marketing campaigns. TINbox has also expanded it’s role with Ferrara, handling some of their print and mailing distribution initiatives.TINbox Solutions loves designing for the restaurant community.

color forecast, spring summer 2011 forecast, tinboxolutions, fashion, design

color forecasts predict a”greener”palette

color forecast, spring summer 2011 forecast, tinboxolutions, fashion, designIn an attempt to marry sustainability (the “green” initiative) and fashion, 2011’s spring/summer color forecast seems noticeably more subdued than last year’s 80’s retro color revival. While still vibrant, the inclusion of softer pastels is a nice change, in my opinion.  A good resource for fashion, as well as having a base color wheel to work off of for Graphic Design.Here’s the link, if you’d like to read more about the forecasts. The theories behind them are quite interesting:Fashion Trends 2011
