Triage (toys)

Triage was actually a backburnered project of mine, in conjunction with an old friend. It was set to be a Japanese vinyl inspired “grunge” doll company, specializing in toys made from junk parts, recycled into macabre masterpieces.

The inspiration came from many Japanese vinyl toys, especially the Kaiju sets. Below are some example pieces of inspiration I had collected:

Here are some initial comps I created, based on the triage medical priority system.

The logo and name seemed to make perfect sense, as we were categorizing “dead” pieces into usable parts, with which to make frankenstein creations.

Here is the final logo that I came up with.

And some applications for backgrounds and advertisements

It was ultimately abandoned due to time and resource constraints, but perhaps one day it will resurface!
