THE COMPANY

THE SOLUTION

Century Books is an independent bookstore located in Pasadena, California. In addition to selling new and used books, the store is a venue for cultural events, such as book signings, live jazz and classical music performances, art exhibitions and lectures. 

In our logo design, the letter "C" followed by a period is obviously a signifier for a "century." The yellow hue was suggested by one of the owners, who loved that color on old buildings in her native middle Europe. The contrasting cabernet hue suggests cozy evenings with a good book and glass of wine.
