Prohibition Hair Salon needed a logo design as a result of The Elements hair salon relocating within Leeds’ city centre. Reece and Matthew are inspired by the emerging art movements in the 1900s; William Morris and his Arts & Craft movement and the beautiful sumptuous Art Deco period with its angles and indulgence of the speakeasy salons, as a result of prohibition in America. They knew they needed a logo designing professionally in order to ensure originality and to fit in with their theme.
Their new salon lends itself perfectly to the idea of a speakeasy salon as it is above a shop. Leeds’ best-kept secret – kept behind closed doors. They wanted their customers to have an experience, not just a haircut! I designed a series of 1920 style inspired logos and a final design was chosen for their new salon. The doors opened this year on The Headrow after lots of Pinterest boards, sweat and tears to get the salon ready. Cutting edge hair design, great surroundings and brilliant staff – perfect!
I also helped and advise for the graphics for the inside of the salon and the signage for the windows, doors and outside the salon to ensure some presence.
