How do you make sure that the system that you create is a flexible system that adapts to a growing and changing brand? How do you define flexibility and how do you make sure you make it flexible?

Great question. I am currently studying Flexible Visual Systems by Martin Lorenz. To be completely honest flexibility is challenge when working with the traditional logo brand. You have to create and design the system with flexibility in mind. What I'm learning is flexibility means adaption to any scenario. For that to work you have deconstruct a brand and reconstruct with flexibility in mind.


When creating a brand identity, how important is target audience research?

Its a pillar of the project for sure. It defines who we are talking to, and because of that it will influence the Identity heavily.

How did your journey into the creative world begin?

I was always amazed on how certain systems worked. Wayfinding in particular. Having immigrant parents who knew little to no english and see them navigate a city like NYC. I late found out that Graphic Design actually had to do with that.
