Work in Progress Rebrand

Work in Progress with Sophia Bush is moving to a new network home at Wondery (the premium network behind Dr DeathDirty JohnShrink Next Door). The move was a fitting time to take a look at the podcast branding. The existing look and feel of Work in Progress was reminiscent of a DIY scrapbook. Sophia brought Hoodzpah on to achieve a more refined, modern, and elevated look and feel that reflects the incredible achievements of the people she interviews on the show.

Symbolism in the new logomark:

Pieces of the whole:

Sophia Bush is a celebrity best known for acting, but she is also an activist, a podcaster, a friend, and so much more. Her guests are just as faceted.

Asterisk:

The asterisk is used to indicate additional info. Likewise the WIP Podcast is all about diving deeper.

Thank You Notes

The art of the handwritten note is not a lost art to Sophia Bush. She wanted to send thank you notes to all her guests after the recording, so custom Work in Progress Podcast branded notecards were a must.
