Good and Tasty by Zoe Morton

“In an ever-growing non-alcoholic drinks industry, I embarked on a journey to craft something that truly captures the essence of enjoying life without the need for alcohol.

“This project is all about communicating the idea that choosing non-alcoholic beverages allows you to have the best of both worlds – having fun in the evening and waking up early in the morning for activities like surfing or hiking without the burden of a hangover.

“To bring this concept to life, I employed bold and playful hand-drawn elements throughout the branding, aiming to convey the feel-good experience of consuming non-alcoholic drinks.”

Hakata Gensuke by Aimee Li

“The goal for this project was to create a contemporary logo for an established ramen restaurant. The bold pictograph logo aims to attract new customers while retaining the restaurant’s Japanese origins and authenticity.

“The imperfect noodle spacing in the logo reflects homemade and authentic qualities. I chose appetite-stimulating colours for vibrancy, nodding to Japan’s cultural symbolism.”
