As the chief creative lead for a new startup company called iShepherd, Inc. based in Sunnyvale, California and in Zürich, Switzerland I just had the wonderful opportunity to be creative on a wide range of design elements.
Starting with the Corporate Identity and Logo Design, Branding and Brand Manual, GUI graphic user interface and UX user experience of the software, over 60 original icons for the iconography and unique visual language of the product as well as many business illustrations, marketing print materials and the homepage design in WordPress. We also created stickers, embroidered patches, flyers, sell sheets as PDF and print documents and Power Point pitch deck presentations.
