Spectacle Society is a woman-owned business in Detroit, MI that sells independent eyewear. The brand design reflects Spectacle Society’s conviction to celebrate everyone’s uniqueness. The design system uses a library of illustrated components: head shapes, mouths, hairstyles, and eyewear. By creating various combinations of these assets in a color palette that is reminiscent of skin tones but isn’t overt, a community of diverse people who belong to Spectacle Society emerges. These illustrations avoid relying on familiar photography which is typically used in eyewear branding.

The studio builds brands with their expertise in: brand strategy, brand identity design, CX (Customer Experience) design, graphic design, creative direction and consulting.
