To push the boundaries of 18|8 Fine Men’s Salon’s brand proposition. As one of the first men’s salons providing boutique-level services including full grooming advice, it was important to visually reflect how unique their product was from the competition.
To push the boundaries visually for the brand while communicating 18|8's core brand attributes; an experience of the highest quality, personalized service, and craft. In my quick turnaround example, I also wanted to communicate a seasonal aspect, reinforcing the importance of personal appearance as Fall activities began. As an ongoing branding strategy, a different design treatment would follow for each season throughout the year.
This design exploration relied heavily on visuals to communicate 18|8’s value proposition. A lifestyle-centered approach, based on visual storytelling rather than descriptive copy, doesn’t work everywhere but made for especially strong impact in this case.
