Bunkr

A rebrand proposal for The Bunker, a local lifestyle and apparel shop in Kansas City, Missouri. The goal of the rebrand was to develop a cohesive identity system for both the in-store and online shopping experiences. I focused heavily on representing the store's morals and beliefs, especially regarding independent style.

The Bunker is a safe haven from mainstream retail shopping, offering customers hand-picked brands and lifestyle products that promote self-expression and discovery of oneself through style.

Taking the brand essence into consideration, I established a set of four attributes to guide the design process.
