Julius Scissor has a salon on Locust Street in Philadelphia that he has operated since the 1970's. For this logo redesign I combined existing brand elements with the look of stained glass lettering found in the front of his shop.
The Julius Scissor logo has two alternate layouts and a simplified icon.
Food in Jars is a canning blog written by Marisa McClellan, a Philadelphia canning expert, educator, and jar collector. I created the type from scratch drawing inspiration from the retro look of the jars and the unique typography only found in molded glass. Marisa also wrote a cookbook Food in Jars: Preserving in Small Batches Year Round, published in May 2012.
