Geekville

Geekville is a coworking space for tech & creative pros, a way for innovators to share office space and ideas.

Geekville is the most recent chapter of my entrepreneurial journey, and The Collective's ideal successor. I invented & designed the product from scratch, often stepping out of my comfort zone and switching from Logo & UI design to front-end development, from Wordpress Customization to print design, from copywriting to digital marketing.

Geekville logo's core visual feature is the pair of glasses at the center of the composition; I chose them as an icon, a status-symbol for "being a geek".

The typography choice for the logotype is Lavanderia, a script font inspired by vintage window signs.

As for the form-factor, I didn't choose the typical badge or round label but a less frequent — yet still typically vintage — oval.

I tried to keep a certain continuity between Geekville's logo and the The Collective's. That's why Geekville evokes the same vintage feeling, but still being a simpler & less elaborated evolution of its precursor.

UI Design & iconography

Geekville - Main website V2
Website, version 2

▲ For Version 2 I completely rewrote the website, with 4 goals in mind: 1) implementing a responsive layout; 2) simplifying; 3) refreshing the design while preserving the usual look and feel 4) reaching international users by translating the content into English. You can check out the website here.

▲ Typonerd was one of Geekville Learning's most successful courses, so we thought it could branch out into its own brand. Graphic Designer Stefano Torregrossa — who also taught the course — created the Typonerd logo, while I designed & built a dedicated marketing website. You can visit Typonerd's live website here.
