As I mentioned before this IDOM journey is a collaboration amongst my friends and my parents. I have been more than lucky to have great friends that are beyond supportive. Plus all of them are experts in their field of work. One of my bestest friend, Lance has been with this process since IDOM was not even IDOM yet. I was back in Bangkok and Tokyo about three years ago. Sourcing for material and production. I needed a logo badly to print hang tags, stickers, labels, and shopping bags. Lance was on a holiday at the time. He went to Kinko’s in middle of the night and e-mailed me variety of logos. We have talked about the inspiration and the story behind the logo couple months before I left for Asia. Lance and I both love Japanese design influence. We love robots, Japanese animation, and of course the colour of orange. Lance is an amazing painter, illustrator, and designer. I truly respect him and his work. He was the perfect person to come out with an IDOM logo. He was very kind to do this in such a short amount of time. Brad and I picked out the logo colours over the phone. That was how little logo was born.
Lance is back designing us window and wall decals. The shop is a work in progress. Dave and his co-worker from PDQ sign got our window decal up yesterday. Brad and I finally got our two shell chandeliers hung the night before in the window. These chandeliers reminded me of my childhood at the beach in Thailand.
More window decal.
Hooray the window is done! Thank you so much to Lance and his incredible design sensibility. I owe you again!
