A brand new arts and crafts department store needed to create a unique identity in order to stand out from its competitors. The branding required a theme that would attract their target market: children. The goal was to ensure the store encourages interactive learning while also maintaining a playful, fun look. Art is about exploring our creative selves; similarly, this store’s theme of space exploration celebrates curiosity of the unknown. ‘SpaceLab’ incorporates elements that help the children visualize themselves like they are in a spaceship, ready to explore the galaxies. By combining gradients with jelly-like shapes, lively colors and surreal typefaces on our brand artwork, in-store signs and advertisements, the overall look oozes a sense of science laboratory mixed with the outer space. The logo itself is a combination of elements, merging a stack of books with the silhouette of an alien-like creature, the portrayal of its hands invites the children to enter the alien’s laboratory, SpaceLab, where they are able to experience an otherworldly learning experience.
