Description

London DAO is a leader in the generative art NFT space, a community of de-fi and gen-art lovers coming together to manage a treasury born from NFT sales of London GIFTS, London EMBERS, and $LONDON token. The NFTs and London DAO grew out of Proof of Beauty Studio.


When the London DAO council came to us, they had an existing brand identity, but felt that it could be updated to reflect the project's unique personality. Together, we developed their brand's message and positioning in the NFT / web3 space to help crypto users better understand ETH history.


The attitude was to reflect the aesthetic history of the city of London while maintaining the colorful, geometric shapes featured in the NFTs. Working off a brand anchor of “Structured and Chromatic”, we took our direction from 1960s London counterculture and primary colors as geometric “building blocks”. We worked closely with the DAO council to hone in on a style that represented their celebratory yet sophisticated nature.

Logo Mark

The pound symbol (£) for British currency was an essential form to communicate, both as a symbol of currency and as a metaphorical representation of the Ethereum Layer 2 Hard Fork London DAO was built to celebrate.

Word Mark

The word mark features elongated, striking letters with exaggerated curves and varying thicknesses, which evoke the playful and experimental design trends of the 1960s. A subtle, geometric “DAO” sits beneath as functional ornamentation.

~

Color

The color palette is designed to evoke a sense of vibrancy and playfulness, reflecting the dynamic energy of 1960s British design. We aimed for a balanced mix of bold, warm, and cool tones that play together harmoniously.

Typography

Strong, impactful headings are combined with clean, legible body text, creating a professional and modern aesthetic. This balanced approach ensures key information stands out while reflecting the innovative spirit of the organization.
