Dehradun Guitar Company

Case Study: Brand Identity Development

The Ask

When my good friend David Murray founded Dehradun Guitar Company, he needed a brand identity that would represent both the incredible quality of their hand-made instruments and the culture and people of Dehradun India where they’re built. He also needed a brand that would resonate with guitar players and stand the test of time.

The Work

I dug deep into research of the region, luthiery and guitar culture, and designed a mark based on the lotus, a flower that in India represents beauty and purity. The labels inside the guitars are handmade paper crafted in the area, with the mark and logo hand-stamped in ink. We kept the typography classic, and combined the letter “D” with the lotus for their guitars headstock.

Mark & Typography

Clean, classic, craftmanship

Creating the brand identity for Dehradun Guitar Company has been one of the greatest honors of my career. As a musician myself and friend of founder David Murray it was not only a fun project but one that I’m extremely proud of. Seeing the identity I created serve their amazing guitars so well is a true blessing.
