COLEGIO OFICIAL TRABAJO SOCIAL de LA RIOJA
Work done: Logo creation
The Official Social Work College from La Rioja (Spain) was looking for a new logo that fits its needs of a more contemporary and communicative logo.
The aim of the new logo is to achieve two objectives; on the one hand, it seeks to modernize the image of the school, bringing it closer to present times, and on the other hand it is intended to explicitly and obviously represent the values f social work.
To do this, I started from the scratch at the conceptual level and the basic elements in the logo were rethought: form, colors and shadows.
Fundamentally the isotype is composed of two identical figures; the idea behind that is to humanize the concept and make an approach of the positions related to social work and of the citizens who use it.
The figure closest to the viewer represents the Social Work, its workers. In addition, it includes the colors of the flag of La Rioja. In front of this figure we have what could be the shadow of the first, but by deliberately moving it away from one another it appears as a new figure by itself; it represents the people that social work helps. The figures have a position of approach, of embracing each other, and it is this action that determines the meaning of the logo: moving away from other concepts such as charity or beneficence, the attitudes of the figures transmit more the delivery of help in a friendly manner, like an equals. In this way, it helps to configure the idea to perceive the College as a friend more than a "cold" institution.
Related to stylistic aspects, the color base of black and grey was selected for purposes of saving and ease of use in black and white, losing in this last case only the representative colors of the flag of La Rioja (which are in color).

Marsjobs, a startup based in Berlin with a vision to impact the jobs ecosystem, needed a logo and corporate branding to visually represent them as high quality and professional.
The first step was to really understand the company's vision. Once done, the first challenge was clear: how to visually relate Mars and Jobs within one element. The result must be attractive, simple and memorable. Not an easy task, but after careful deliberation the direction became clear to us. The solution, to integrate a representation of Mars and Earth into one message.
Earth = People
Because it's a concept that's close, familiar and simple to identify with for the vast majority of users. It's simpler to make a connection at an individual level when the core link is universal.
Mars = Companies
The company's naming already includes Mars, so we created a strong visual association between these two elements. Also felt that job hunting is normally associated with feelings of excitement, adventure and novelty. Very similar to how man feels when thinking about Mars.
The intersection of both concepts represents both sides of the equation: people that look for jobs and companies that are offering them. Thus giving rightful meaning to the concept of Marsjobs.
