Twin City Barbers
Twin City Barbers is a brand new venture located in St. Paul, Minnesota. Since the shop offers straight-razor shaves and a masculine ambiance, the goal was to create an identity that would cater to the mostly male clientele. A rough textured logo with modern typography help the brand stand out in the unique melting pot of a city that is St. Paul.
