Till Death Tattoo - Design Distillery
Like any good tattoo, a good brand should stand the test of time. To achieve this, we took elements of Neo–Traditional tattoo and applied it to contemporary brand design.
Using colours familiar to the Neo–Traditional style, we created a striking brand package using custom illustrations created by the shops very own. Alongside visual identity, merchandise & in-store branding, we refreshed the website to tie it all together.
The focus of the website centres around the artists that make up the studio. For each artist we have an icon logo, biography, along with a full gallery to show case their work. Scroll down to see how we brought Till Death to life.

We achieved this through extensive galleries, using animation between photos to make the experience for the user more enjoyable.

In creating the logo we wanted a premium yet simplistic feel, the colours of gold, and off-whites where used to represent the amazing surrounding beaches, while the simple “M” monogram logo and the contrasting dark black. Due to the size of the website we really focused on a user experience and layout for the one page website to truly show the full experience of Manunui.

In creating the brand and website for proposal planners we aimed to embody the experience of the "big day". This is especially seen in the colours of the brand we based around where the memorable moment would take place – the colours that make up New Zealand’s landscape. Their logo is based on an organic view of a diamond ring, we wanted the logo be subtle but also recognisable part of their business.
In creating the website we had to really show the process of the service they provide, in doing so we created custom illustrations showing services, and custom illustrations outlining the journey they are about to take.
