We wait and wait for the holidays and in a blur they’re here. We live for inspiration and that is just what our clients give us. Now is the time to simply pause and give thanks for your ongoing enthusiasm for our work. We are truly humbled.

Some inspiration, photos, and highlights from the last bit of Summer warmth and the beginning of the Winter chill:

He likes to quote Thomas Watson of IBM who said, ‘Good design is good business.’ Mr. Scott adds, ‘If you do good work, do good things it will come back to you in positive ways. We are fortunate and happy with the way things are going and ready to move ahead.’”

CD packaging for musician Jared Seabrook’s solo debut

We recently had the opportunity to work with Boston-based musician Jared Seabrook. The former drummer of Hey Mama, Jared exhibits exceptional power, technique and feel on a drum kit. When he told us that he was recording a debut album that infused punk and jazz—called Motivational Speaker—we jumped at the chance to work with him and help create a visual package that felt true to his sound.

Saltygirl Jewelry, an ocean-inspired jewelry company based out of Honolulu, Hawaii, was ready for a brand identity that really represented who they are. We collaborated with Amber Chesebro, Saltygirl Jewelry’s founder and metal-smither, to create a logo and brand that is as beautiful as her jewelry and rich with hidden meaning and detail. The logo works on many levels of design goodness (yes we said it). We took inspiration from the beautiful forms and patterns found in the Hawaiian landscape from the fruits of the rainforest to the shells and surf of Waikiki Bay. We perfected the logo with nature as our blueprint.

Twitter_Blog

Twitter unveiled their new logo this week. Over at Bluerock, we got a bit nerdy over the refresh. They decided to get rid of the bubbly wordmark and “T” and focus solely on the bird. Taking elements of the previous logo, the updated new bird feels relevant, fresh, and just plain classy. The bird was slimmed down, and probably the most notable change is the bird’s movement. Before the bird was hovering above the ground, horizontal and relaxed. Now the bird soars into the sky, with such confidence. Overall, the update is highly successful. Twitter has now joined the ranks of brands who have enough confidence in their logo that they don’t even need a wordmark to define them. Fearlessly feisty and worth Tweeting about!
