Cambridgeshire Caledonian Pipe Band

Branding & Design

I was initially approached by a member of the Cambridgeshire Caledonian Pipe Band to assist them in re-creating their logo, so that it was usable in print as well as web formats. It was also requested to amend the drones on the bag-pipe to make them truer to the instrument and to adjust the colourway to use a more traditional colour.

Following on from the initial update of the identity, I wanted to experiment with the form and overall look of the band further. I found that after adjusting the double clef mark used on sheet music, that it could be used to replicate a bagpipe. While the concept was not carried forward, I was then commissioned to create artwork for the drum skin of the band's bass drum. After creating a series of pattern designs, a colour burst effect made from acrylic inks was chosen and colour matched to the colours of the bass drum for production.
