Louis Vuitton is a brand that is synonymous with luxury and sophistication. Its iconic monogram, featuring the brand's initials and a geometric floral motif, is instantly recognisable and has become a symbol of status and style. In this article, we will explore how to create a Louis Vuitton-inspired logo using Flexspec tiles.
Step 1: Choose a Colour Palette
The first step in creating a Louis Vuitton-inspired logo is to choose a colour palette that complements the brand's signature colours. Louis Vuitton is known for its classic brown and gold monogram print, which features a warm brown background and golden initials and motifs. For our logo, we will draw inspiration from this classic colour scheme and incorporate our nut brown tile with a light ivory finish.
Flexspec also offers a range of metallic tiles in various finishes, including gold and silver. We recommend selecting a tile with a slightly matte texture, as this will create a more subtle and sophisticated effect than a highly reflective finish.
Step 2: Choose a Tile Pattern
Once you have selected your colour palette, it's time to consider the tile pattern for the logo. LV is knows for their bold patterns and textures, so we will take inspiration from his design sensibility to create a logo that is both striking and sophisticated.
Flexspec offers a variety of tile patterns, but in this instance we'll use our most popular tile the GridFlex Pro, which features interlocking rubbed surface that can be configured in a variety of colours. By selecting a tile in a Light Ivory finish, we can create a subtle yet sophisticated reference to the brand's monogram.
By alternating the direction of the tiles, we can create a pattern that mimics the movement of waves, adding depth and interest to the logo design.
Step 3: Create the Logo Design
Now that you have selected your colour palette and tile pattern, it's time to create the logo design. Louis Vuitton's iconic monogram features the brand's initials in a stylised font, surrounded by a geometric floral motif. To create a similar effect, we will create a monogram that is both elegant and distinctive.
Follow the image above and start by creating the outline of the logo with a series of rectangular tiles in a nut brown colour. This will form the background of the logo and provide a strong visual contrast with the light ivory tiles that will be used to create the initials and motifs.
Next, create the initials of the logo. Start by selecting a series of tiles to finish and arrange them in a configuration that forms the letters "LV". By using the interlocking circles of GridFlex Pro, you can create a seamless and sophisticated effect that mimics the brand's iconic monogram.
You can also do the same with the geometric floral motif that surrounds the initials of the logo. Start by selecting a series of tiles in a light ivory finish and arrange them in a pattern that mimics the geometric shapes of the brand's monogram. You can create a pattern that mimics the movement of waves, adding depth and interest to the logo design.
Step 4: Finishing Touches
Now you've finished creating your Louis Vuitton-inspired logo.
Other ideas to consider is incorporating a border around the logo using tiles in a jet black colour or to add a sense of depth and contrast to the design.
Another idea to consider is adding lighting to the logo design. This can be achieved by installing LED lights beneath the tiles using LinkFlex tiles, creating a subtle and sophisticated effect that highlights the light ivory finish of the tiles. By illuminating the logo from below, you can create a striking and dynamic effect that draws the eye and adds depth and interest to the overall design.
In conclusion, creating a Louis Vuitton-inspired logo using Flexspec tiles is a great way to add a touch of luxury and sophistication to any space. By selecting a nut brown tile with a light ivory finish, you can create a logo that is both elegant and distinctive. Incorporating finishing touches such as a border or lighting can add depth and interest to the design, and draw attention to the subtle yet sophisticated finish of the tiles.
