Right now I’m currently working on the brand guidelines for Halle Architects, the brand identity project I have in my portfolio. That is a key aspect that is missing from that project and it can really add a lot to it. Here’s what I have so far, in terms of refining the logo:

The kerning, which could use slightly more work, has been adjusted even further to be more consistent. I should this done and printed by the end of next week. The next project I’ll continue to refine will be my restaurant identity. Here’s a little sneak peek of that:
