The brand needed to look good in Black & White and the client wanted a symbol that plays with the dual letters "RR" in Required Reading in a way that captures the elegance of a type, mature, modern, but not too modern, simple and classy.
Based on the brand name, I created an iconic logo, using the "RR" dual letters and played with the negative space on a circle surface. The shape of the circle represents the unity and continuity of the company and has the role to communicate the sharp message of the logo. That is why, in opposition with the message, I decided to use a font which is more slimmed down, but in the same time it compliments the logo and captures the elegance of it.
