The process of creating a strong brand identity started off with creating a logo.
A logo makes the first impression on a brand and it is crucial that it encapsulates the ethos of a brand and relays it in a glimpse. Centarom, connoisseurs of luxury fragrances approached One and Only Designs to create a logo that captured the essence of magic and luxe it symbolized.
Centarom is synonymous with luxury, uniqueness and charm. Another symbol of nature that perfectly embodies the values of this brand was the ‘Peacock feather’. A rare sight and often a symbol of majesty and charisma, the feather served as inspiration for the logo.
The Royal Motif
Ancient cultures like Greeks, Egyptians, and Romans praised the beauty of Peacocks given their beauty and vibrant colors. The sight of a peacock was thought to be a gift from the gods and so they were highly valued as a luck-bringing sign of bounty.
The logo takes inspiration from the peacock feather. Rare and regal, the peacock feather is a symbol of majesty and charisma.
Colors play a pivotal role in crafting brand identity and giving the first impression through a glance. Choosing the right colors, the perfect palette and tones goes a long way, and through meticulous selection, a color palette that reflected the essence of the brand was selected.
The color palette used for the logo resonated with the aesthetic of the brand. The colors gold and dark velvet (a rich hue of purple) were chosen as primary hues.
The color palette resonates with the ethos of the brand. Primary tones and complementary tones made up the palette that would go on to become the pillars of all branding collaterals.
