I’ve been working for a while with Michelle and Scott of MAD Scientist Yarns (they are members of the Badger Sett) and love their ethos. They are both working scientists who express their creativity and raise funds for charity through their yarn sales. Their colours are out of this world!

They got in touch wanting a rebrand and a new logo. They had been using a stock illustration of a little scientist for their logo since they first set up (you can see him on the yarn bands above), and asked me to create a new character just for them.
For the first time, I used a combination of Adobe Illustrator and ProCreate on the iPad Pro to create this logo and it meant I could bring in some really fun watercolour effects.
I’ve also designed a hard enamel pin for them, featuring the new scientist character, and created a preview artwork so that they can start taking pre-orders for them. They are fundraising for the mental health charity Mind through the pin sales.
