The Maca Mini

Bold and Fearless Graphics 

Long time collaborator and international fine art jeweller Maca Bernal needed wheels with attitude.

As a renowned jeweller, Maca Bernal’s much admired Maca Links are geometric shaped links crafted through wax modelling and 3d printing which are later cast in resin.

In 2020 Tanks worked with Maca to develop a visual identity that embodied her practice, philosophy and work: Inventive, Original, Creative, Bold, and Fearless.

This led us to choosing visual elements to symbolise a brand that is distinctively strong, geometric and unapologetically present.

The visual ID was extrapolated out into other brand elements including stickers, care cards and now to her speedy little mini.

The Brief

– On brand, classy but rad :)
– Graphics to include: Maca Logo, website addy www.macabernaljewellery.com, and recommendations for additional graphics
– Graphics can go on sides, bumper, back of mini (not a full skin).

The Concept

The original design used a mix of racy and angular elements, to reflect the Maca Links and Logo. The colours were the same-same palette as website. Maca’s tagline: Mindfully Crafted Art Jewellery was added on the side to provide more info about the brand.

Development

The design developed from a more abstract options purely using links to one where the cord from Maca Links necklaces was added in a way to give the impression of flow, speed and movement.

Outcome

Maca has noticed clients contacting her after seeing the vehicle parked around Auckland. Her patience with the local rude and aggressive drivers has also improved, now that she is driving a much more distinctive vehicle!
