It didn’t take me long to come up with my first logo design (based on a button motif), but nine weeks into the project I decided to change it to something more typographical, eventually using simply the letters ‘FR’ which I warped in Illustrator. I felt it was stronger and more memorable. Throughout the ten-week project my ideas evolved in more ways than I had expected.

My initial idea was to be literal by having an image of the model and clothes, and then imply ‘repeating’ it as if it were a mirror image, but I felt it didn’t...
