I designed a logo for Celebrar Events inspired by my love for calligraphy. Celebrar is a start-up event management service based in the Philippines. The owner wanted an elegant logo that would pair well with the dark and metallic palette she chose.
Sketched the designs in different types of papers since the nib that I used snags a bit
I hashed out my ideas on paper, trying to come up with flourishes for the border. The drafts were scanned and traced using Illustrator.
Inked the design using black Calli ink before scanning and tracking it
I’m waiting to hear from the client on how she feels about the logo. Now I’m going to start designing the business cards and other stationery for her branding kit.
Singapore Handmade is a group of Etsy sellers based in Singapore or from Singapore who aims to bring awareness to handmade products and share craft related information with its members.
We’ve decided to revamp the branding for the team so we’re slowly redesigning everything with input gathered from members through the forums and voting through polls.
The original team name was Singapore Etsy Team and it was changed to Singapore Handmade after that name got the most number of votes in the polls.
Next was step was to hold a contest to make a logo. The team captain, Richard, made a call for entries and I decided to join the contest.
I chose to include something that represents Singapore and something representing the love for handmade goods.
After doing some research and playing around with some sketches, I opted to include the Singapore Flag, a heart in the shape of a hand and the team name.
After the polls closed, the team selected my logo as the new team logo. I’m very happy that my design was chosen to represent the team’s new image.

Pictor Web Logo Redesign
Pictor Web is a web design company that wanted to redesign their current logo. The word pictor means “The Painter” which is a constellation and web comes from the company’s core business which is web application. The client wanted to retain some elements of the former logo in the new design such as the color purple, the company name, the painter’s easel and paint brush.
Taking into consideration the client’s requirements, I kept the image of the easel and transformed it into the letter P and I also morphed the brush in the former logo to form the letter W. Since the company specialized in web design and applications, I included an illustration of a laptop showing the abstract initials and I strategically placed the company name in lieu of a keyboard to add visual interest in what could have been a blank space while creatively fitting in the company name.
