UPDATED 9.6.2013

Here's my final presentation. Thank you everyone for your feedback, scroll down to see the progress I've made during this class.


For the graphic palette I combined graphic shapes with organic, included quirky imagery and illustration, and general sense of fun.


 Hi Everyone,

I've taken the chance to completely throw out my original logos and start fresh. With feedback from a few designy friends and inspiration from my mood board here's what I've cooked up. I've used Pluto for the "Shiner" but decided it was perhaps too flourishy for body text. So I took the Bree Serif from the "studio" part of my logo and paired it with clean sans serif typefaces Gotham (for print) and Open Sans (for web). The mustard color from the logo is hard to use for typography so I've pulled back a green from the mood board.

I would love to know your thoughts. Thank you!


My name is Jessica Shiner. My design portfolio website is I created a wordmark years ago but since I have a 9-5 gig I haven't had the opportunity to give ShinerStudio a little love and attention.
