Eight Emperors

We were hired to design an identity for Thea and Matthew Shlian's new company, Eight Emperors. The target was to create something classy and simple and I think we nailed it.

Their only concern is that the mark could get too thin so we created two marks to use. The thicker strokes were to be used at smaller sizes and the thinner ones could go as large as they wanted.
