We love sharing our favourite things, brands, places and people with you. And we’d like to start with a very important person who helped us create our brand: Mariette Kotzé.
One of the most important things to start with when you are building a brand is your logo. Mariette Kotzé (artist, image maker, graphic designer, interior decorator and all round stylish chick) designed it for us.
The i resembles a child
The nice thing about the KiND logo: it’s very recognizable in plain text and email. Just by using all capitals and typing the i in lower case, she managed to make it stand out in image as well as in text. And for those who pay attention to detail: the i in lower case resembles a child, but in a very subtle way.
Artist slash lab technician
But who is Mariette? Well, she is not only a graphic designer, that is just something that she does on the side. Her passion is art. She makes single edition scanogram paintings from a scanner in her studio. You can imagine her house looks a bit like an art lab. Her art is created through the combination of ink and water puddling and adding solvents to make the ink react. The results are astonishing.
Mariette is a combination of an artist and a lab technician. Please find our favourite works below. If you want a ‘Mariette Kotzé’ please check our her website mariettekotze.com or contact her directly.
