Robert “Bob” Hardy story
It’s been more than ten years since I first met Robert Hardy in the lounge at the Georgian House Restaurant & Day Spa in Alexandria, Ontario. At the time, in 2008, Heinz Kaswurm, the restaurants’ owner and I were discussing how we could incorporate music into a video we were developing to promote the restaurant on their website.
From research to visual concepts, from thumbnail sketches to the client brief, from selecting and defining a colour scheme to developing a message. The final hand-illustrated image.
The art of logo design is unique to the client, the brand, the event; it’s about what the symbol says on its own or anchored with a wordmark.
