Thanks for your query, Karen, and for the photo. Yes, Ian was responsible for the lettering on some of the Pleasures sub-brands. For example (see image), A Garden of Pleasures.
It was the lovely and talented Dena Seigel, then of Estée Lauder, who hired Ian for Estée Lauder Pleasures. Later, he worked with their wonderful Creative Director, Cathy Phelon.
It’s a great company.
The days are shorter, sunsets are more bright white than warm, crisp air nips my nose and the leaves have mostly fallen. Winter is coming, Christmas is nigh and so is the seasonal re-launch of this epic perfume.
Estée Lauder Pleasures was one of the first major American brands that Ian worked on. In many ways, it launched his career into the United States. Pleasures hit the perfume market in 1995 and was the best selling brand by the end of the next year. The lettering, the bottle, the scent – it was, and is, a perfect package.
For Coors. It feels like it’s been around forever. Right?
Ian designed this script logo along with the words “Private Reserve”.
We all scream for ice cream!
The logo only, not the monogram.
A crushing deadline. The logo and Bell Slim font had to be ready in time for the summer Olympics.
When he was young, Ian was a goalie. Almost all his hockey equipment carried the Bauer name. Designing a logo for this iconic sports equipment manufacturer was an honour.
Great historical references were provided for all the Bigelow work. They have great archives.
Still graces the window today.

This logo was commissioned by a floral designer.
