Colossal Little Creatures is an Irish based events organiser mainly dealing in artist and designer exhibitions. The company was set up to initially run a designer collective exhibition called, ‘The Creative Cycle’, in the Little Green Gallery in Dublin. The exhibition consisted of thirty artists and designers who created a design piece based on the exhibition’s title. Each participant was to visually communicate their creative process/cycle in an A2 sized space.
Colossal Little Creatures approached Opus Creative to help create a logo for the company. The brief called for a memorable illustration to help communicate the unusual name and create a fun brand to play off the oxymoron that is colossal little creatures. Opus Creative decided the best practice to represent this oxymoron was to highlight the contrast between the exhibitor and their work. The illustration shows a seemingly normal person casting a playful and fierce shadow. The message to the viewer is not to underestimate the level of energy and fun in any designer or artist’s work. We also created a complimenting business card for this project.
