A good, short Skillshare class for students from Mike Ski and Jessie Jay of Philadelphia-based True Hand. It’s a walk-through of how the duo designed the identity for Kensington Quarters, a nearby restaurant and butcher shop.
Elements of the project included a business card, signage, t-shirt designs, social media icons, website graphics, hat patches, cheque presenters, labels for the shop, multiple murals on the inside of the building, and a style of illustration they can elaborate on in future.

A bit more from the True Hand portfolio.
There’s a fair bit in the videos I can relate to — little things like using my phone to take a photo of a pen sketch, emailing it to myself, then tracing it in Illustrator.
