Olio E Pepe

Andrea approached me to help create a logo for her food styling startup Olio E Pepe, or in Italian meaning Oil and Pepper, an homage to her Italian side of her family. We originally decided to try approaching it from the perspective and duality of two sisters seen in illustrations of the Gemini, but she quickly honed in on the approach of the olive oil bottle and the snake which to me felt like a nice duality in itself – softness – the oil and the unforgiving snake – the pepper.
