As co-founder of TMPL, a new skincare brand created to address the needs and concerns of men of colour, I played a crucial role in establishing the brand since it’s initial launch in 2021. The brand quickly grew a cult following as men and women alike gravitated towards our unique brand promise of “self-care for the mandem” and was featured in numerous global media outlets including British GQ, Wallpaper* and BBC Dragon’s Den.

With early investment secured and in the lead up to launching a new and improved product range, we felt the timing was right for a rebrand in order to firmly position TMPL as a brand fit for the culture.

Before and after

We rebranded Temple as TMPL, modernising the original spelling while staying true to our core ethos of "your body is your temple". For the logo I designed a bold new logotype set in all caps to exude strength and confidence.

The new brand identity conveys a bold new attitude towards modern masculinity and unapologetically celebrates the diversity of men with melanated skin.

The new packaging boasts a clean minimal aesthetic and is designed with functionality in mind for quick and easy use. I teamed up with the talented videographer and photographer Andre Modeste Humphrey to capture our new campaign creative – models were cast from our social media community and were selected to showcase a range of skin tones and ethnicities.
