PROJECT: ILLUSTRATION & COLOR

Blend was entering a stage of high-growth and needed an update to the visual identity. An updated color palette and a fresh illustration style were developed and executed. 

TEAM Kaitlin Sullivan, Vince Sacco, Hugo Baeta

Vetted with product marketing and product design, a scalable, abstract style of our product UI was developed.

This style allowed the team to visualize complex product features as well as editorial metaphors.
