logo & branding

Red Engine Publishing is a small creative publishing brand who take pride in producing creative titles and telling unique stories.

Their first book ‘Bowie by O’Neill’ saw them working with ‘Iconic Images’ and the legendary photographer Terry O’Neill. They designed and produced a limited edition fine-art book with images from O’Neill’s nearly 30 year partnership with David Bowie. Images of this book can be seen at here.

The brief was to create a logo that was simple and contemporary, whilst still retaining a classic feel. The symbol and text needed to work together and independently, for traditional print and online – anything from traditional embossing to animation.

The commissioning team was made up of a diverse range of visual opinions – a key part of this project was understanding and negotiating how to meet these expectations.
