Escape Artists Inc. is a blog featuring extraordinary people, places and ideas. A collaboration between Kaye Thompson and Richard Cooke of ThompsonCooke and selected artists, photographers, film makers, writers, designers and musicians.
The Escape Artists Inc are Photographers, Designers, Writers, Artists and Art Directors; with an eye for the most visually captivating and interesting places in the world. Our authentic and engaging content is carefully curated to inspire global wanderings, with the visually imaginative traveller in mind.
Escape Artists Inc with its multi-layered meaning was the perfect expression of what we wanted to create with the blog.
A painter’s palette shaped graphic, with oversized exclamation mark depicts the creativity, anticipation and spontaneity of creativity and travel. The EA letter forms were created from an adapted typeface, ensuring the brand mark is unique and engaging.
A great tagline should encapsulate your brand offering. “Extraordinary People, Places and Ideas.” encapsulates the Escape Artists Inc offering, without restricting us creatively.
Images and stories are created by the Escape Artists team and uploaded into the scrolling front page - which is then labelled with 'people', 'places' or 'ideas'. This will become important as the blog grows as the viewer will be able to search these subjects to reference places visited or artists interviewed etc.
Content is everything. A website or blog is no different to any other media. Whether it’s a business card, brochure, poster, website, blog, instagram or facebook post, it's our collective experience and expertise that allows us to produce great content and ensure the Escape Artists Inc is always enticing and inspiring.
To showcase the photography and the diversity of stories featured on the blog we designed a range of six business cards. These will be updated regularly, as more images and more extra ordinary people, places and ideas are revealed.
