The Chameleon logo has a history of nearly 30 years and it is part of my personal history. It is made partly using Chinese brushes and ink. Then scanned and worked with a combination of vector and photographic programs. From the early days in computer design it was easy for me to adopt and combine styles gradually using the mouse pad as a canvas, the same time my travels around the world and working in three different continents made me adopt new cultures and a new understanding. So the 'chameleon' became like a trademark with a logo to follow and since then I used either the logo or the name to sign most of my works.

              us and them

The objective was to produce a logo that enables a simple plate with a napkin to become a sophisticated symbol that freed the imagination. We wanted to design a logo that would represent the quality and directness that the customer was offering. “Cohesive and poetic” were the actual words used after we finished the presentation and found that the client could also see a sunrise, space, sailing, plates and faces. Finally, the clear text helped to bring all the elements together while the classic black on white ensured that all the text is legible.
