SPACE Retreat Branding
A quick offer to design a logo for a good friend turned into an amazing opportunity to meet some amazing people and create some space.
My buddy and long-time collaborator Austin Church emailed me about something random (I can’t remember) and it set off a long email thread catchup conversation. You see, I had hit the road with my family and hadn’t seen anyone from Knoxville in quite a while. Turns out he was putting together a unique gathering of fascinating folks for a weekend up in the Smoky Mountains.
I was in-between some projects and asked if he needed anything and he needed a logo! I was happy to do it and he invited me to the meet up.
Somehow I managed to work it out and flew across the country to spend the weekend with some awesome people.
I don't know how he does it. On a really tight deadline (my fault), Jon was able to turn my jumbled thoughts into a beautiful logo that matched my vision for the SPACE brand. In fact, some of his design choices and our conversation about them helped to sharpen that vision. Jon is more than a designer or developer. He is a gifted strategic thinker who helps you get it right the first time.Austin L. Church / Founder of SPACE Retreat / SPACE Retreat
The SPACE Retreat was just what I needed - it provided an enormous amount of clarity as I was re-shaping FortySeven Media into my own thing after my business parter and I separated.
The idea to create space and quiet your mind is simple but powerful. That was our goal with the logo and we think it turned out pretty great!
The tagline is such a wonderful play on words, and really summed up the whole weekend. We turned it into a sticker that was given to each attendee.
