In 2011, while working for Albertyn Viljoen Nortjé Architects (AVNA), we had an idea for a AVNA 5 year birthday celebration booklet of which I did the graphic design and page layout. Unfortunately it was never published, but I finished most of it and it's worth sharing the amazing projects that I was involved with as either Architectural Technologist, 3d Artist, Graphic Designer or Photographer.
I had a brief to design the new signage for Victoria Corner Medical & Dental in Newcastle, KZN, South-Africa. These included signage for the reception area, main signage for the facade of the building as well as signage for the boundary wall.
I also had to design a new logo for Veronica van Niekerk Physiotherapist and redesign Dr. Van Niekerk's logo to fit in with the planned signage and branding. Their logo's were used to create signages for the reception area, laser-cut from stainless steel.
In the end it's always nice to see the designs in real life!
This logo design process started out with concept hand sketches and developed into more detailed sketches, watercolour paintings and eventually computer generated images. (Note: At the time of this project I was doing business as "Theron Visuals")
Veronica's logo also ended up being used in the signage of her practice:
Graphisoft South Africa hosted a Client Design Competition for a new logo for the ArchiCAD SADC region.
Herewith part of the brief: "We have this year introduced the ArchiCAD Client Design Competition. It forms part of our localisation and celebration of local Architect Users campaign. We hope that it will highlight the excellence that is prevalent in the local ArchiCAD user community and will further inspire the localisation program, by identifying ArchiCAD users to the local manufacturer fraternity. We further want to identify ArchiCAD in SADC, with a unique ArchiCAD symbol or identity, which will set us apart from ArchiCAD in other countries and regions of the world."
