About The Project
Manos De Piedra, translating to Hands of Stone is a premium boxing glove and accessory range. Graeme at Square Circle Sports approached Ümlaut to design the logo and branding for the range which would be printed and embroidered onto various accessories including the gloves.
The gloves are modern and chic but inspired by boxing history. Manos De Piedra was the nickname of a famous South American boxer. Although the client didn’t wish to acknowledge the boxer himself he wanted to take inspiration from boxing history and Mexican culture. The stone hand icon we created was subtly inspired by the boxer without being too direct and worked well with the bold type to form a modern logo design.
The logo design has since been used on all Manos De Piedra accessories including caps, hand wraps and the premium boxing gloves.
