Describe the challenges and key objectives
Dima and Dimitrios wanted a fresh, but classic corporate identity that would stand out from the plethora of hair salons in the city.

Describe the brief from the client
When Dima and Dimitrios Tsobanopulos decided to open their new hair boutique at the exclusive, five star Cellars Hohenort Hotel, they needed a stylish corporate identity that would reflect their unique hair design experience. Their initials, D and D, lent themselves to a nifty device that created the shape of a stylised pair of scissors. This logo, along with other hair-themed design elements, was then rolled out across the entire CI.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
Whether it’s the delight of seeing all the new design elements coming together across the whole brand experience, or whether it’s the fact that Dima and Dimitrios just give great cuts, business has boomed in their new location, with a reported 37% increase since mid-2009.
