I have done this project as part of the capstone project of the Coursera Specialization in Graphic Design given by CalArts (2016).

For this project, I had to create and give a visual identity to an imaginary start-up company, and apply that visual identity to a number of forms. I also had to develop a logotype and accompanying graphic palette to visually represent the company, as well as apply that design to a number of different applications to see it at work.

The concept of my start-up was simple; it creates comics that put life into perspective. The story is about two best friends who noticed that too many people around them have mental illness and that it wasn’t always right in their own head despite the fact that they had everything to be happy.

According to them, most problems are linked to the society we are living in and they have learned from their experiences that sometimes laughing at a situation is enough to reduce the pain or forgot the shame.

That is why a few years later, they decided to create cartoons about their everyday life. Drawings don’t seem like much, but sometimes it is enough to bring some light to people’s lives. Those cartoons aim to be a weapon against loneliness and conformism.

Both animal-lovers and thinking that human beings have a lot to learn from them, they decided to adopt two little woodland animals that would look at our society from their own point of view and make us realise human’s contradictions.

The results in pictures..
