About Psychologia Podcast

By looking at history, science, superstition, and criminology, Psychologia paints a picture of humankind's relationship to the shadowy parts of our own psyche – and pulls back the curtain on the mysterious discipline of psychology.

The Challenge

To create a logo system that marries the academic research of the Psychologia Podcast with the dark vaudevillian atmosphere of the show.

The Perfect Solution

Taking inspiration from the phrenology diagrams of the skull, we illustrated an icon that is both recognizable and impactful. The bold red color elevates this from the academic world into the vaguely sinister.

By rendering the typeface we were able to bring a hint of the dark Lovecraftian vibe that goes hand-in-hand with the practices of late 19th century psychology.
