BRAND DESIGN

THE STORY

Keith was on an assignment in the Azores (off the coast of Portugal). While freediving within the crystal clear cobalt blue ocean, a pod of dolphins descended beneath him. One dolphin exhaled. The bubbles ascended past his lens and to the surface, releasing an imaginary communication between two intelligent beings desiring a deeper connection. This formed the inspiration for One Atmosphere 33, our icon, typography, and color palette.

Our icon, respira, is a visual representation of a fleeting breath in the ocean that was inspired by the dolphin. The outer shape is created by a combination of O and A merging into a single form. The inner shape integrates the number 33, which refers to a depth of 33 feet, also known as one atmosphere. This graphical element is abstracted and encapsulated within the design, and complemented by the written word.

MAIN LOGO VARIATIONS

Our logo is the face of us and everything we do - we knew we had it to make it meaningful. The O, A, and 33 were placed together in a way to make them all interconnected: just like the beautiful earth we live in. Different shades of blue were placed together not only to create dimension, but to echo our focus on the ocean and the movement of a wave.

COLOR PALETTE

Color Treatment True Blue: The ocean absorbs the color red giving it a beautiful blue tonality. By adding red underwater (via a strobe), it illuminates a full-color spectrum. We developed a flash of red to emphasize the infinite possibilities of color.

PALETTES

One of the most important parts of the One Atmosphere mission is the research behind the work. Without data from nature, we could not possibly help our environment correctly. 

PATTERNS

Therefore, this branch receives the main color treatment since research is the DNA running through every project we create. It is based on fact, like how red light is what makes the ocean blue.

Storytelling is paramount at One Atmosphere. Thanks to all of our research, we are able to communicate a story to the public, trying to change perceptions about the environment. We use this palette because the blue oceans and green trees surround us in our environment.

Color Treatment Mother Nature: On land, the rainforests, and at sea, plankton, are responsible for producing the majority of the oxygen we breathe. They are the inspiration for this color treatment, resulting in our colors: tree frog green and bottlenose dolphin blue.

The third aspect of our mission is actually going out into nature and connecting with the environment we are trying to save. Our founder Keith has gone on many expeditions, so it helps us have a first-hand account of what we are speaking about. This palette is used as each day we see the sun shining down on us, keeping our earth alive and well.

Color Treatment Sun Kissed: Earth is dependent on the sun for life. The sun's rays produce visible light, which we perceive in ROYGBIV color. This inspired our yellow-orange palette, which is an amalgamation of the ever-changing hue of the sun over time.

TAKEAWAYS

OVERALL

  • Honed my time management skills by creating lists and schedules

  • Improved my communication skills from participating in dialogue to further the design process and speaking with industry professionals

  • As a designer, I learned to be diligent, patient, consistent, and to pay great attention to detail

It was a reminder to always be empathetic, not

only when designing, but also just in general.

I learned so much about environmental conservation and it was an honor to be able to be apart of changing public perception of the environment.
