Recompense Life Group

New company, New design

While life insurance isn’t particularly exciting, Nyasha Dixon had a clear mission: help the black and minority communities in Baltimore City, MD create a legacy for their children. 

Project Goals

After a thorough Design Exploration & Presentation, we were able to pinpoint the design aesthetic on Nyasha’s new company. 

  • Nothing too trendy.
  • Avoid logo imagery that was too literal.
  • Play on words if possible.
  • Clean magazine-esque typography was approved for use.
  • Stay within her predetermined color palette.

Our Process

We explored several options with all these notes in mind.

The approved first draft kept a simple style, utilizing the various weights of the Montserrat font.

The circle incorporated the recommended colors and faded into each other, representing a lifecycle but with no apparent end.

Other variations explored a logomark that could represent the R in recompense; a circle with clean start and finish for each color—almost like a life preserver; and the magazine style type without a logomark.

The approved version was our favorite too, Nyasha!
