This logo exploration is for Claire Rice. She sells handmade pen wraps on Etsy and at the Los Angeles International Pen Show.
I created this logo redesign just for fun. I wanted to highlight the collectible dispenser and the "brick" candy shape. 
In 1972, PEZ started in Vienna, Austria. 
The name is an abbreviation of the German spelling for peppermint, PfeffErminZ. Originally it was marketed as an adult alternative to tobacco. The first dispensers, known as "regulars" were similar in shape to a cigarette lighter.
Toy character head dispensers were introduced in 1955 after the candies became available in the United States. There are over 550 unique dispenser heads with thousands of variations.
Today, the company sells and markets its products worldwide and distributes approximately 70 million dispensers and 5 billion candies; per year. PEZ products are available in more than 80 countries worldwide.
For my logo, I wanted something that combined my graphic design experience in both print and digital. Using blend modes with overlapping Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow to create Black produces a vibrancy on-screen that wouldn't be achievable in print. The font is Boucherie Block Italic.  
This logo is for the St. Martin of Tours Auction Gala. After a hiatus due to Covid, the highly anticipated fundraiser event returns in 2023. This is an opportunity for the parents to have fun and can bid on a variety of silent and live auction items. This year's title is Below Deck, a reference to a reality TV show with the same name.
I provided three options for the co-chairs to choose from:
Option 1 leverages the font and anchor from the Below Deck TV show. The colors are a radial gradient of a sunset over the ocean.
Option 2 utilizes a steering wheel and yacht instead of an anchor. Orange and black are St. Martin's school colors.
Option 3 uses the blue and yellow colors from the Below Deck TV show but simplifies the anchor and introduces a rope element.
This type treatment is for the 2023 St. Martin of Tours Walk-A-Thon. This annual fundraising event is an opportunity for the kids to raise money for their elementary school. This year's title is Bengals Under the Big Top with a circus theme.
