Revert Design is my recently founded graphic design studio. The name originates from a graffiti name I used as a teenager, it derives from my real name Trevor when written backwards reads Revert. (kind of!)
I have always been fascinated by the works of M.C. Escher, Reutersvärd and others. I came across a newly designed font called Macula by Dutch type designer Jacques Le Bailly a.k.a. Baron von Fonthausen.
The font is an Esher-inspired forray in optical illusion, which is really beautiful. The idea of the letter R as an optical illusion really intrigued me as there could be endless possibilites with it as a brand mark. So I alterd the R from the Macula font a little and decided to use this for my logo.
I was also experimenting with patterns while screen printing and decided to use these in my new logo design.
The 4 patterns used are to represent the main areas of design I work in - Branding, Print, Interactive and Interiors. While the green colour comes from the word 'vert' which is green in French.
With my budget pretty low for this project I wanted to do the printing myself, so I got rubber stamps made which I could use throughout. The business cards were all hand crafted using 100% recycled 750gsm grey card and spray painted around the edges. All the printed info was stamped from a self inking stamp. The process used for the pattern postcards is similar except these cards were individually hand printed front and back with rubber stamps that I made.
