Emily Reas is a film creative in Los Angeles, California. By film creative, I mean she does it all: act, produce, write, edit, grip, etc. You may notice a similarity in last names here. Emily is my younger sister!
Emily first approached me asking for a new business card design, but I suggested that I also create her a new logo and basis for her visual branding. Her words were friendly, quirky, and badass. We landed on using a platypus as part of her logo because Emily subscribes to the platypus as her spirit animal: it looks like a hybrid of different animals, it's kind of a strange creature, and it can shoot venom. It's the peculiarity of the platypus that makes it a perfect symbol to describe my sister.
It also works perfectly as my sister is starting up her own production studio: Platy Productions.
