“Third Coast is a freshwater surfing festival held in Wisconsin on Lake Michigan. In the fall strong winds, called “witches”, blow through making surfing possible.
The project includes identity design, stationery, festival program, and poster series. The logo is typographic in nature and features a custom drawn wave-like number 3. The mark has a rustic texture, applied on an angle and often bleeding and cropped. The poster campaign mixes the visual language of midwestern letterpress woodtype with surf copy and visuals.
The texture in the logo was achieved by sending out for a custom rubber stamp, stamping on paper and then scanning in the best specimens. Texture in other areas was scanned from a passes of a printmaker’s ink brayer on paper.”

“Elite Food Catering Co. is a concept project. I find food imagery to be quite impactful—for that reason, I decided to take popular articles of food to create a bold (yet delicious) looking design. I illustrated a pineapple, mango, pepper, and watermelon to use as the visual focus for the business cards. With the mailing envelopes, I wanted them to compliment the business cards but not be overpowering in design. I used three classic patterns (dots, stripes, damier) for the C4 envelope covers, and added a stripe pattern with energizing colors for the inside.”
Designed by ConceptSeeker | Country: Spain
“ConceptSeeker is an attitude with regard to design, a commitment with the creativity, thoroughness and communicative accuracy. The working process is understood as a continuous distillation to reach the essence of the concepts. These will be crystallized in an effective and lasting communicative solution, with an elegant and attractive design.
The development of the logo sums up my work philosophy. With the use of geometry in an abstract composition it makes an self reference to a concept’s search, elaboration of a communicative strategy that encloses and focuses it, and finally the sintetización in a solid design. These three phases outlined separately, merge finally into a minimalist and sober logo.”
Designed by Corktown Seed Co. | Country: Canada

“Inspired by the hip feel of Soho, New York, Broome & Mercer™ is a company looking to create afordable luxury wristwatches that have class and a timeless sense of fashion, something that is lacking in the current market.
The name was directly inspired by the corner of Broome St. and Mercer St. in Soho which is the location of the restaurant where the idea was born.
The watches are intended to reflect the wearer’s personality but never to dominate their style, which is why a classic color palette of black, white and gold was chosen for the brand and a monogram and typographic combo that doesn’t draw too much attention to itself but rather complements the overall look of the watch.”

“Sevenly.org is a company out of Southern California that runs weekly campaigns that donate $7 from every item sold to that week’s charity. With a motto like “People Matter” it seemed almost mandatory to involve people in the process of putting the stationary together. From the sticker to the embossing on the back of the envelope, every step of sending out a letter involves a person. The paper choices and printing methods help to create a connection with the design and allow the recipient to physically engage with the object.
The business cards were letterpressed by the good people at Mama’s Sauce, and the rest of the stationery is put together by whoever sends you a letter or card.”

“Set within the gentle terrain of Laoshan in Nanjing, the architecture of Sifang Art Museum is a well-constructed mix of harsh angularity with an elegant appeal whereby the asymmetrical structure hovers in space. Every view angle yielding a different trapezoidal perspective; the collateral system adopts the trapezoidal form. The Chinese saying – Strength within Gentleness – is inspired by bamboo – the material and form used for landscaping and parts of the structure. This underpins the brand identity, describing the gentle landscape where in old China, scholars and artists took recluse to master their craft or refine their thinking. The demure that also balances the masculinity of the architecture. White, is also a canvas a museum would function as.”Next »
