Rickard Studio (The Screaming Metal)
The Rickard Studio logo was inspired in old iron stamps.
Robert Rickard masters the metals, being the medium to his art.
I wanted it not only to resemble those stamps, but of course to be used as one.
I found it monotonous to just show the logo on the stationery,
so I visited welding shops and took pictures of amazing sparks.
As a result I had a lot of material to work with. The sparks were like the metal screaming.
I loved combining that stamp alone next to that. The logo made some sense.
I stayed at the Rickards’ home in New Mexico while I was painting some decorative panels for a booth.
They are the sweetest and best hosts you can imagine. It makes such a difference
when you get involved in the projects in an enjoyable personal level.
Sparks will fly!
