This project started during a visit to a library without the right library card. Then a thought popped into my head:


"Wouldn't it be easier if Sydney had just one library card?"

 

Then I decided to explore how it would look.

1. Ideation

First, I created a basic brand concept and tried it out on a few applications.

Print-Ad-V2
Magazine
Book-01
Wall
Matte Black Bottle Mockup by Anthony Boyd Graphics
Book-02

This was a good start, however it had some issues; the chevron isn't very relevant to the card's purpose, and isn't very memorable.

 

So I decided to take another pass at the design.

Library-Card-1

Concept 2

Book-New-3B
Vinyl

This version certainly is more eye-grabbing, but at small sizes, it doesn't work well, and it projects a mood that doesn't match that of any library in Sydney.

SydneyCard-Front-Page-2

So I tried again, with Concept 3.

Here, the brand revolves around the 'spark' symbol representing a spark of knowledge, and the 'S' in SydneyCard.
