In spring of 2018, presented with another opportunity to open a pop up for summer, I created ARAY. A play on the word “array,” honoring my grandfather’s legacy (his name was Ray A.).
I wanted a logo that would be bold and honest and hopeful. Strong letters united throughout speak to the impact he had on others through his kindness and good character — and what I hope for ARAY. The circle adds a modern touch with a nod to the sun, creating a ray of light.
