Design Portfolio: Sweet Tea Logo and Branding

You may remember this mood board from a few months ago. Well I recently wrapped up the branding for Sweet Tea & Co., a whimsical and unique tea party experience for little girls. The client didn’t want the bright pink and glittery look that a lot of her competitors seemed to have. She wanted it to be simple, elegant and sophisticated. The client is thrilled and I’m really excited with how it turned out. I’d love to hear what you think or let me know if you need some branding help of your own!

Sweet Tea Brand Board

Sweet Tea began as a summertime ritual to entertain my own daughters. They delighted in dressing up in my vintage dresses and sipping tea under our weeping willows as I told stories of days gone by. —Shirilana Hanson, Owner
