The first step of the design process for visual identity development? Setting up a visual strategy. Studying the current HUSTLER audience, identifying new audience members, and establishing the current and aspirational brand vision was vital to crafting the new HUSTLER mission and using this as a springboard for further visual development.
With a visual strategy in place, sketching to develop the logo form began. Special emphasis on exclamation marks, quote blurbs and asterisks were highlighted to tie HUSTLER's explicit past with the new mission and vision of free speech for all.
Leaning on the final logo as a foundation, brand colors and a type system were implemented to bring HUSTLER's new direction to life.
