Historical logo unearthed
04 August 1989

While digging out old material to include on this blog, I found these hand drawn visuals for the first Intro identity. I think I’m very brave to share them with a wider audience.

They look as if they’re drawn on parchment (it was a layout pad), and they’re the oldest thing in this archive for sure.

These were sketches, because we didn’t even have a computer then, and it was my first job having arrived from Wolff Olins. As you can see, I was keen to throw everything including the kitchen sink into a logo back then. Thankfully, none of them saw the light of day — until now.

Note how we all liked to be known as ‘Design Consultants’ back then.
