City Harvest

An organization of New Yorkers feeding other New Yorkers.

Challenge
City Harvest is a non-profit organization in New York City. City Harvest is recognized for its service in taking unused food from New York City’s restaurants and giving it to New York’s under served and hungry; their mission is to feed New York’s hungry. City Harvest recently started new programs in nutrition, health, and education. They are growing people’s awareness of food and what they eat, expanding their role in feeding New Yorkers.

Solution
We created a theme around New York being a city of plenty. The new brand identity takes Manhattan and turns it into farmland to be harvested. The logo expands into various patterns and textures for the brand’s identity and collateral. The identity allows for unique executions that are unified together under City Harvest’s identity.

PACE Los Angeles

Fresh new identity and website for an organization that helps Angelenos keep busy with employment.

Challenge
PACE, the Pacific Asian Consortium in Employment is a large non-profit organization that seeks to create employment solutions for diverse communities in Los Angeles. PACE started in 1976 and grew to be recognized as a leader in addressing problems of poverty and economic inequity for minority communities. However, throughout their growth they never figured a distinct brand or character for themselves. Initially asking for just a website, we knew they had to develop their brand and identity from the ground up.

Solution
We developed a brand that is friendly and inviting. PACE’s identity is about movement and growth. PACE is about creating and helping sustain employment. Contemporary typography and a fresh color palette is used to enforce the message. Illustrations and patterns give the identity life and character. Together the identity distinctly separated PACE from sites of other organizations and non-profits.

Please the Palate

French Cafe inspired typography for a boutique marketing firm.

Challenge
Please the Palate is a firm specializing in marketing and event planning for the wine and spirits industry. When Please the Palate asked us to create their website they had a logo and little else. We knew we had to expand their visual language to speak to both consumers and wine industry professionals. The challenge was finding the balance between the seriousness of industry professionals and the fun of wine and spirits.

Solution
We spent time delving into the vast visual history of food, wine, and spirits. Inspired by the typography of French cafés, wine bar chalkboards, and cheese and deli signs, we designed the website around tasteful typography and ornaments. Hand drawn illustrations and type are used throughout to give the site just a little bit more charm.

Theophilus Orthodox Presbyterian Church

Approaching a church website where the words and verses of the Bible are front and center.

Challenge
Theophilus is a conservative church with the belief that Christianity is a religion of faith that depends entirely on the words of the Bible. They needed a website that would be shared with newcomers but informative and useful to church members.

Solution
Seeing that the church was strictly based on the Bible, the website’s design is entirely made up of typography. Bible verses create background patterns, and formal typographic motifs create visual interest throughout. The words of the Bible are the foundation of Theophilus Church and its website.

Grant Designs

A contemporary identity for a thoughtful interior designer.

Challenge
Grant asked us to create a new identity and website for their contemporary interior design firm. Trained as architects, their new look had to fit their aesthetics and ideas on light and space. They believed in the power of light to flow through and extend space.

Solution
Our identity focused on the idea of light. We created a symbol mark, combining the “G” of Grant with a lightbulb. Extending the identity are prisms of light that create patterning across different applications and imagery. Grant’s strength is finding ideas on how to use light.
