The “joi” wordmark in the brand has evident meaning: It’s my name. My name is a variation of the word/name Joy which, of course, means happiness. That’s a feeling I definitely wanted to encourage with my logo and my work. The hot air balloon conjures feelings – perhaps nostalgic – of wonder and possibility. The stripes of different colors, widths, and shapes within the balloon form celebrate variety and individuality within a collective. It is, pun intended, uplifting.
