Raygun Lounge, a self-proclaimed trashy chic gaming lounge and retail outlet in Seattle’s bustling Capitol Hill neighborhood was looking to refresh their image with an update to their branding and logo. The updated logo features a custom drawn depiction of a 1930’s Buck Rogers Ray Gun toy, along with a customized text font in a style that evokes a neon sign. We created both the wordmark and logo icon as separate elements as well to be used for both signage and merchandise.

When shown in the existing, muted color palette, it failed to convey the sense of passion, urgency, and need of the Institute. The new branding, including a new log, color palette, and visual assets, demonstrated a more modern look, with thick text and bright colors, while still pulling from a hand-made, artsy inspired graphics.
