Mammal Design: Antler rebrand

Brand: AntlerTitle: Antler rebrandHeadline and copy text: New playful identity for Antler luggageAgency: Mammal, LondonStrategy: The Cernis CollectiveAgency website: www.mammaldesign.com www.thecerniscollective.comCreative Director: Joe HospArt Director: Robin PowellCopy writer: Robin Powell / The Cernis CollectivePhotographer: Matthew ShavePublished: September 2013Short rational: Antler recognised that it had lost its way over the last ten years and needed to re-energise the brand and give the business a more sophisticated look and feel. The new identity features a new logotype and marque. The previous marque used the stags head and antlers, which we felt were no longer relevant. It was very masculine and we wanted to appeal to women more than the previous identity did. The typeface we chose for the wordmarque – Harbour by Gareth Hague of Alias fonts, perfectly fitted what we wanted, when used in a new context with new imagery and language, adds a playful, cheeky but sophisticated twist to the brand. We needed a marque that was simple, so we used the A from the logotype placed in a circle – which seemed fitting for a brand that's all about movement.
