She Mighty

A story of physical strength.

I designed the logo and brand identity, and also designed and built the website for She Mighty, a women-focused health and fitness company.

The Challenge

Until now, She Mighty had only existed as an instagram account. Working directly with the founder, I created the company’s first logo, brand and website.

In my research before we started, any search for the term “she” resulted in virtually opposite iconography from the word “mighty” — which produced almost exclusively masculine results.

Even though the pronoun “she” is in the name, we agreed that we did not want to create a brand that was defined by the typical aesthetics of femininity vs. masculinity.

My Approach

After we agreed on the direction, I set out to create something that eschewed the traditional male-dominant image of “mighty”.

The image of a flexing arm is a powerful and appropriate icon—it felt like the right solution from the off, but it was important to execute it differently.

After sketching out options on paper, I had the narrower, more tapered bicep image that I wanted, which I then traced digitally using a pen tablet.

The Solution

Once we had the logo that we wanted, we agreed on a simple, bright, and energetic color palette, paired with a strong, bold font, geometric splashes, and spacious, minimal layout design.
