Designing a Children's Brand for theBrown and Beautiful

Madison Miles and Friends is an emerging children’s brand and book series highlighting the fun & wildly entertaining lives of four young, beautiful black girls. Each character has their own series of books, with appearances by their other friends as well.

Challenge

Take over illustrative and artwork creation of a multi-character children’s book series, while preserving the integrity of the original character designs.

Outcome

A seamless transition. Sirocki quickly stepped in to complete the design of the first book, and continued to create illustrations & designs of the girls and their many books, products and images.

While we were at it, we crafted a strong and vibrant visual identity to give the brand the confidence and flexibility to engage its reading audience and scale with the needs of its fast-growing product base.

Logo Update

We took the original logo and gave it a fresh facelift. It is cleaner, bolder, and wiser.

Fun and Versatile

Armed with multiple logo variations, a defined color system, and added design elements, we’ve increased the flexibility of the brand’s visual identity across its many product offerings and display usages in both digital and print — large and small.

Beautiful Illustrations of Brown Girls

Maintaining the integrity of the original character designs, we were able to continue the illustrative work of the characters across their many scenes and story lines.

Four Girls.
Many Stories.

One Brand.

We knew that connecting the visual design across all four characters’ book covers was vital, so we designed a title & cover system that will keep everything on-brand while giving spotlight to the characters’ stories themselves.
