Logo design I made recently for a website and Twitter hashtag – KchatAP (Kindergarten chat Asia Pacific) a place where early childhood educators in the region can communicate and collaborate.
Initial sketches and ideas.
Great shots of Bruce Lee and his teacher – YeWen.
Logo design for a Russian Lion Dance crew and their Chinese teahouse. From the start I had a challenge to combine several absolutely different symbols in one logo, first of all the client wanted to see a steam of freshly brewed tea that coming out of Gaiwan (Chinese tea brewing bowl). Besides that the logo should somehow represent the Lion Dance as well. Challenge accepted!
As usual I want to share with you my logo development process. First I started with some tea.
Tea + steam + Gaiwan
Rough sketch of the idea.
Trying to combine both elements in one design.
Love this speech so much. It helps me a lot during the hard times of creative crisis.
Just a small illustration of Jimi Hendrix I made over the afternoon while listening to Jimi playing guitar with his teeth.

A project for a friend of ours, who sells Tibetan antiques in a small and very cozy shop near Wushan Hill in Hangzhou. The goal was to create a logo, business card and shop sign.
The client liked our business card concepts so much, that he decided to make two sets.
Here is the initial drawing of letterpressed part, made by Katya.
The structure of our logo.
The view on HuiMin street.
Business cards render. Letter-press goodness in all it’s glory.
A packaging design I made for my homemade kombucha.
I’ve got some really neat Chinese fonts recently and decided to play around with them. First I looked into Japanese Sake packaging for inspiration.
Than the SCOBY was born.
Tried a circle label but it looked too much as alcohol packaging and I’m packing a super healthy drink here after all.
