Chessel Support Services is a mental health care facility for young adults based in Bitterne, Southampton.
Tinstar was tasked with creating new sympathetic branding. The initial phase of the project involved the design and production of a logo and suite of stationery.
As always, we begin with a blank sheet of scrap paper. We have an enormous amount of scrap paper in the studio left over from proofs printed whilst working on lengthy book projects. We avoid waste at all costs – and the initial scamps never leave the office, so the scrap paper is perfect for the task.
The photos of logo sketches found in our portfolio are the only instances of these scamp sheets finding their way into the outside world. We see them as an integral part of the design process and they represent important historical ‘bones’ of completed designs.
