Kobe are a premium scissor manufacturer which uses the finest Japanese steel to produce some of the most highly rated scissors and tools in the hairdressing industry. They required some sharp new branding to launch their new range and highlight their creativeness and quality.


I chose to stay clear of overdone scissor icons and instead focus on creating a sharp icon which reflects the pure quality of the product.  I de-constructed the ‘K’ and used some negative space to illustrate a cut between the elements. I kept all the corners as sharp as possible and coupled the icon with a crisp sans-serif font to finish the logo
