Case Studies of some of our favourite projects including: graphic design, logo design and brand identities by Thain Creative in Barrie, ON. For brilliant businesses like Kenzington, PIE, The Farmhouse and more!

Cycle Simcoe

Cycle Simcoe

We were commissioned by two major cycle enthusiasts who are developing the cycling program in Simcoe County. They wanted a logo that appealed to all cyclists and demographics. So we worked with very simple shapes to develop a clean logo mark that would appeal to every pedal shredder.

Caboose Marketing

Caboose Marketing

Caboose Marketing is a rail road inspired branding project we were commissioned to bring to fruition. The project started by coming up with the name, we originally were going to go with was North Station, however as we continued on it quickly changed to Caboose Marketing. We used an old Caboose as our inspiration for this logo and gave it the wear and tear of paint on the side of an old rail cart. Toot Toot, this ones a winner!

108 Media (New)

108 Media (New)

Thain Creative was tasked to rebrand an up and coming media company that buys independent films and brings them to market. The number 108 has a lot of symbolic meaning. So when we started the project we explored quite a few different routes however, the brand was about entertainment and emotion so we used the word Oh! as the centre of the new identity.

The Inspiration

Some of the things that inspired us for this project

 

The Cutting Room Floor

Some of our designs and ideas that just didn't make the final cut.

Nest Photography

Nest Photography

THAIN was approached by an up-and-coming child portrait photographer to develop her new brand identity. Immediately, the idea of a camera aperture and nest in one came to mind and we set out to develop a balance between both iconic images. The trick was putting in the hours to find a simple balance that worked. We also developed the design materials for her CD packaging and other print collateral materials.
