Portsmouth Poet Laureate Program
The Portsmouth Poet Laureate Program is dedicated to supporting and nurturing a love of poetry in the Portsmouth area. The PPLP, as they fondly refer to themselves, needed a refreshed representation that drew from their heritage, while speaking to younger poets in a modern society.
About Portsmouth Poet Laureate Program

Modern Yet Classic Logo Design
We worked with the PPLP to craft a more modern image that also remains rooted in history. A set of brightly crafted quote marks forms the letters “PPLP” in a stacked format while a serifed font alludes to vintage bookplates.
The wordmark keeps it classic with a horizontal format, dropping the quotemarks for a simple letterhead use.
