A hypothetical re-brand - the typical Uni assignment. Here the brief asked to re-brand and re-imagine IPAustralia - the division of the Australian Government which represents Intellectual Property - Patents and Trade Marks, etc.
The challenge here was deciding on a tangible representation of something which by its very nature is intangible - an 'idea'.
The logo represents an idea (the green arrow) emerging from the mind (the grey box). The arrow is green, and pointing up and to the right - positive in both colour and orientation; the box is grey with rounded edges - indefinite, malleable, ambiguous, adaptable.
The overall scheme is befitting a government agency by being minimal and uncluttered, while still maintaining cohesion and continuity across multiple pieces.
