Identity

The identity is formed from two basic shapes: a circle and a line. Taking inspiration from architectural plans, these shapes are arranged to form the GBA logomark and can be shuffled to produce different "layouts". The overall identity is minimal but retains the GBA purple that has been a mainstay of their identity since the company's inception in 2009.

Website

The website was designed as an extension of the GBA identity, retaining the clean and minimal look. Mobile-first development ensures excellent performance on all screen sizes. I used the BarbaJS library to create smooth and fluid transitions between pages. The website is currently awaiting content and will go live later in 2019.
