:: Scott Pearson PT – visual identity ::

Pearson PT t-shirt and business cardsScott is a newly qualified Personal Trainer based in Manchester. As you would expect from someone who is dedicated to health and fitness, he was looking for a visual identity that would communicate his professionalism, drive and enthusiasm, but also an urban vibe that would appeal to his target market of mid 20s to mid 30s gym attendees in that area.

I had a lot of fun experimenting with different ideas for this identity – including roping my long-suffering husband in to model for the ‘Vitruvian Man’ inspired idea. My version referenced the same use of symmetry and geometry as Da Vinci’s original but with the obvious addition of clothing! Shorts, t-shirt and trainers – the standard kit for many gym visitors.

The competitor research for this was really quite enjoyable too *coughs*, plus I managed to obtain some useful professional advice regarding my own health and fitness interests along the way.

The final business cards are a durable 760 micron thick plastic (the same as a credit card) with a high quality gloss finish that continues to represent the physical attributes of a personal trainer.

Here are the options presented during the initial development phase. As you can see, the final designs are a combination of elements from each of these.
