Face Forward

Face Forward special occasion make-up and beauty approached me for a complete identity. I wanted to expand upon the clever business name in concept, form and execution by developing a memorable, adaptable and elegant brand with a playful side. Face Forward are about bringing through natural beauty and making their clients feel special. I settled on a tagline which reflected this and designed a thank-you flier with a warming and appropriate quote about genuine beauty. The letterforms were constructed from scratch considering each letter’s reverse aesthetic and were designed to look effective embossed. I was heavily influenced by vintage san-serif signage and high fashion, particularly Chanel. My favourite application of the identity is the branded t-shirt. I have been told it get’s a great response when working with a client in front of a mirror! I would like to thank Jana, the owner for her trust and for giving me creative freedom in concept, design and product.
