Bringing sneaker-making to the people.
Brand Transformation · Brand & Visual Identity
GARRIXON is a Philadelphia-based sneaker-making workshop.
By offering one-off customisation and sneaker reconstruction, GARRIXON is on a mission to create a more democratised sneaker community.
Collaboration is at the core of what GARRIXON do: they enable and empower the creativity of others. As a result, all of GARRIXON’s products and services are designed to serve others.
In 2021, they decided to take this collaborative commitment one step further and expanded their product offering to better enable independent creators to dream up, create, and build their own limited edition sneakers.
Your Majesty led them through this expansion by creating a refined brand strategy and visual identity.
Empowering those that power sneaker culture
As part of our strategic process, we talked with employees, clients, and independent creators. The one unifying theme from these conversations was diversity. Diversity is perceived as the ultimate driver for creativity in the sneaker world, which can feel constricted by pre-defined silhouettes dictated by conglomerates.
We saw this conflict as a unique opportunity for GARRIXON. They had the potential to push back against the industry norm and facilitate the creativity the fans craved, enabling GARRIXON to carve their own niche while genuinely contributing to the sneaker community.
Based on our learnings, we developed the following strategic positioning:
Made for Makers
A distinct design system that changes with the Makers it serves
As a brand that was Made for Makers, we needed a visual identity that was strong enough to stand on its own but flexible enough to hold the vision of its Maker.
We created a design system inspired by the Garrixon logo to enable the creative expression of others while staying true to the GARRIXON brand.
“As a company, we were unable to articulate in a few simple statements who we were.
Through a series of interviews and creative exercises, Your Majesty cut through the idea fog and produced ‘Made for Makers.’
With this direction, we can confidently say, ‘We exist to serve Culture, Creativity, and Craft.’
The Your Majesty team was fully engaged. They were creative, detailed, and extremely fun to work with. By the end of our time collaborating with them, we truly felt like family.
Your Majesty solved our ‘identity crisis,’ and we recommend them highly.”
