An Understated & Elegant Brand

Sometimes I believe a brand just needs to be understated and elegant. Vie a la Table, meaning "Life at the Table" is a brand for my oldest son–an emerging and very talented chef.

My plan is to provide a full case study in the coming weeks.

National Geographic Water Exhibit at the Annenberg Space for Photography

Water: Our Thirsty World is a new exhibit showing at the Annenberg Space for Photography through June 13 in Los Angeles. The exhibit coincides with National Geographic’s April edition which looks at our precious resource of water from environmental, social, political and cultural perspectives.

We had the privilege of creating the brand identity and marketing materials for the show. These banners are just one of the pieces we developed for the campaign which also includes print advertising, collateral and POP. If you are in the LA area, I highly recommend you take the opportunity to visit the exhibit.

Design that Matters

This is a poster design we created for a conference on justice and relief for the World’s most vulnerable which is currently under development by Ken Wytsma and Matt Smith from Antioch Church in Bend, Oregon. I really appreciate their vision and encouragement to use design to help further a cause to help individuals who need it the most around the world. And on a personal level, this is one of the most satisfying aspects of design—when you can create something both beautiful and meaningful. I also love it when their is no need to provide a rationale or explanation. This visual says it all.
