The Cedar Room

January 27, 2015

The Cedar Room at the Cigar Factory will be an open and airy space in a historic circa 1880 building. We’ve had the pleasure of working on this project from the beginning, starting with the naming, logo creation and a teaser piece to help promote the space that will open this Spring. We used a handsome palette, metallic inks and traditional type to establish the tone for this inspiring space.

Montrose is a new lifestyle store in Houston Texas. We had the pleasure of working with Juley Thuy Le and Kim Nguyen to develop the logo and in-store materials. Named after and inspired by the Montrose neighborhood, their goal was to bring Paris to Texas in a thoughtful way. And they have succeeded. The store is a perfectly curated selection of clothing and much more. Congratulations on the opening – we can’t wait to come visit in person!

Evoking the bygone era of Old-World New Orleans, Balise is a new restaurant set in a 19th century Creole townhouse, featuring a Louisiana-focused menu created by Chef Justin Devillier (James Beard finalist for Best Chef: South in 2012, 2013, and 2014). The name Balise is derived from the first settlement at the mouth of the Mississippi River’s Birdfoot Delta, which controlled commerce coming from the Gulf of Mexico to New France.

The origin of the restaurant’s name served as inspiration for the initial brand development. Eccentric elements, coupled with New Orlean’s culturally rich past is reflective in the graphic details, hand-rendered type and color palette. We’re currently working with Justin and Mia on the printed materials and digital presence, which will launch in January.

Design Division

November 6, 2014

The mayor of Charleston, Joe Riley, Jr. created the Civic Design Center in 2001, which was renamed in 2014  as Design Division. Design Division is a division of the City of Charleston Department of Planning, Preservation and Sustainability. Design Division is the City’s in-house design studio. In addition, it is their mission to cultivate design excellence in the community and set expectations for the City’s development. As residents of Charleston and believers in design, this project was particularly rewarding to work on. It was a pleasure working with the director, Jacob Lindsey and his team on this project. We consulted on the renaming of the division, redesigned the logo and created a guideline of brand standards for their in-house department. Take a look at some of the many projects they are working on for the betterment of Charleston.

Biscotti Brothers New Logo and Brand Identity

October 2, 2014

We’ve been working with the team at Biscotti Brothers over the past several months on updating their brand. Biscotti Brothers specializes in baking traditional italian cookies. They maintain the artisanal quality of their biscotti by using the freshest natural ingredients, keeping their batches small and insuring that each cookie is actually touched by the hands of a baker. There were many elements and aspects of their existing brand which we thought were successful. We wanted to make sure to enhance those elements and bring a fresh perspective to the brand. We introduced new graphic elements and type as well new and different variations of the logo and sub marks. We’re in the process of redesigning their packaging now and are enjoying our collaboration more and more with each project.
