My work on A Strangely Isolated Place

I was responsible for the design of the ASIP logo and iOS app icon. In Ryan Griffin’s words, “My brief to him wasn’t an easy one, but he nailed it.”.

Skills and Tools

These are the skills and tools I used throughout this project.


The logo was designed in Adobe Illustrator, with the help of Astute Graphic’s SubScribe plugin for drawing tangent curves. The color, subtle effects and iOS icons were applied in Adobe Photoshop.
