It’s all about U… Underground Culture’s creator is not only committed to making your hair look amazing, but also contributes part of their profits to youth music, art and culture programs. Having an edgy, underground, yet friendly and approachable look & feel to their products was optimum for their success. It was important to be able to color code the products that go together as well. The new and improved packaging has been very well received by regular users and new alike. Our own photographer Spencer Weiner did the photo shoot for their materials. All together a blast to work with Fay, creator of Underground Culture!
…i don’t really know where to start about Georgia’s Smokehouse. Is it the hush puppies, or the incredible Southern homestyle flavors, or is it the charming owners, Chef Brian Parks and Alissa Parks that makes Georgia’s so amazing? The answer is all of the above! They came to us looking for a girl next door with a little sass
icon to go with eye catching logo graphics. Rat rod, tattoo, vintage delivery truck, Southern BBQ were our inspirations in creating this Southern goodness.
Taj came to us with an offer to do his newest CD, then things just went from there…branding the entire tour and supporting materials as well as singles. Easy to design with such good music to work with, warmth and island colors balanced with cool illustrative graphics was the inspiration. We so enjoy working with Taj. An amazing poet, Taj’s lyrics and music are edgy and relative to current events, set in gorgeous melodies of fresh reggae. Good stuff! Highly recommended…

Bent on crushing the stereotypical image of the “yarn store” Loop & Leaf asked us to bring the feeling of the sunny historic building they occupy as part of their image. Our work was easy… the owner is sweet and energetic, she was not afraid to be different and take a risk, which makes all we do for Loop & Leaf succeed in standing out of the crowd.
Architect Karl Kras’s thing is sustainable architecture. In our first meeting he told us he loves organic shapes vs. structure, weaving & gathering, fluidity vs. assemblage, permanence vs. nomadic space, tension. A dream job for us all… to interpret these into an identity perfect for an up and coming architect. We’re really enjoying our journey about, and along with, Karl Kras.
Jatta Records brings you fresh organic indie music crafted by artists who take their time to bring the artform forward. Quality, not quantity is the maxim. Real instruments played by real musicians. Jatta was looking for a strong logo mark to transcend the boundaries of category, genre and geography. We took it a step further and included subtle imagery from the Hindu deity, Shiva. The result is super-graphic and compelling. This one came together effortlessly…!

With their focus on personal service and catering to an individual’s special needs, Brashears Insurance needed a high end sophisticated look and feel. Using neutral tones of warm grey mixed with crisp white and accented with the classic gold logo, the color palette really drives the concept home. Light, yet conservative and fresh. A new approach to insurance…and the image of insurance companies.
A very different kind of nursery featuring only quality plants and materials. 7 Day Nursery needed to look as high end as their inventory, yet friendly and approachable. Owner Steve Grant has had the insight to let us run with his identity on all materials. The result has been a record year for 7 Day… Congrats.
