Development:
Marcd
It's a tattoo shop that offers something new. With the look and feel of a traditional tattoo, the revolutionary ink disappears after a year. Similar to the "made to fade" tattoos, we approached the project by creating a suite of wordmarks that represent the need to not settle on the one that lasts forever.
