We were hired by a company called Spiritual Principles in Business Relationships to design their logo and text lock-up. The company facilitates and teaches practices to large corporations that help nourish and encourage multiple entity partnerships. With an emphasis on the magic that happens when two organizations come together, the logo has two circles coming together, and when they combine, newfound "vision" is created in the form of the eye in the middle. The logo also has a second read as a capital S for Spiritual/Spirit.

We were hired by Glassy Sunhaters sunglass company to design a promotional poster highlighting one of their pro skaters (Aaron Homoki) and his signature sunglasses, which had a green galaxy design on the frames. 

We designed a Digital Martyrs cryptic type treatment to mimic the Arabic Kufi style of writing for the hip-hop group of the same name. 

FoCo Cafe has a "pay what you can" business model and therefore makes it easy for anyone hungry to be able to obtain a meal, whether it be with the couple bucks they do have, or with bussing tables for an hour or two. It was an honor for us to design the poster for their annual bike-in music festival. 

The Giving Tree is a location at the FoCo Cafe for people with excess to drop off their goods for those in need to pick up. It's part of the non profit, good deeds that the FoCo Cafe is known for engaging in. We created this logo and branding on a volunteer basis to help contribute to the great work they do in helping to bring all aspects of the community together. 

We Ride By Train reached out to us to design some apparel. This is a sample of an all hand-lettered design we came up with for them. The vintage style of typography hints at a simpler time, when riding by train was more common. 

Lyrics Born once again hired us to layout/design the album art for his 7th installment of his Variety Show series. This artwork was done in collaboration with Geoff Kim and we created the custom typography for the cover by hand. 

Dreamcatcher Real Estate of Taos, New Mexico hired us to do their new logo and rebrand. They wanted to modernize their brand while creating a timeless mark that will stand the test of time. We designed the logo, the logo system/stationery and signage and provided elements to be extended across all platforms. 

We were hired by Tacci Olive Oil (a start up) to design their olive oil bottle labels based off of an old family owned macaroni company label from the early 1900's. The typography required reworking and to be redrawn and the illustration was redrawn and digitized. This project was completed in collaboration with illustrator Eli Halpert. 

Market Skateshop in Fort Collins, Colorado hired us to design/draw lettering for new signage for their shop. This lettering would also function like a logo to be used on skateboard decks, t-shirts, stickers and other promotional ephemera. 

Acclaimed alternative hip-hop and independent recording artist Lyrics Born hired us to design a logo for his Vintage Clothing company. He wanted it to hint at old time methods with hand-drawn typography and the type of imperfections/charm you would see in the good ol' days. We created custom typography for this logo mark.

Lyrics Born hired us to lay out/design his Real People album art. It was created in collaboration with father son team Brent and Bernard Collins. [CD art shown above]

These are the two poster designs for an EPMD show we helped put together. The legendary group has a lot of brand equity with their existing logo and name so we just wanted to emphasize that and let the logo function as it should, to draw in loyal EPMD fans. We used a split-fountain, hand pulled screen printing technique to print a super limited run of only 12 of each design. The printing technique makes each poster a one of a kind. 

Solarium International Hostel is one of the first hostels of it's kind to open in Fort Collins, Colorado. They hired us to design a highly ornamental, illustration based logo that consists of "swiss cheese plant," the name and a sun in the background. The client requested that the design have a "retro" feel so we chose to draw the typography by hand for this project. It will be used on signage, printed collateral and the website. 

Acclaimed alternative hip-hop/funk musician Lyrics Born hired us to design this logo for his independent record label, Mobile Home Recordings. He wanted it to be literally rough around the edges, have a hand-drawn feel while maintaining the boldness of conventional sans-serif typography. He really wanted it to be a unique type of mobile home and be super legible and translate well at small sizes (i.e. instagram avatar). 

Album art package for hip-hop artist Lyrics Born's sixth installment of his series of variety shows. L.B. wanted the album to appear like a vintage whiskey or scotch bottle, with handmade elements and very little negative space left over. We hand drew the typography for his name (Lyrics Born) and constructed all elements in a way that paid homage to a time when hand crafted items were the norm. 

Logo/Identity design for a popular San Francisco house music DJ known as Frenchy Le Freak. The aim here was to stay away from the typical and cliché headphones or turntables all too often used as DJ logos. The abnormal type suggest the "freak" part of his name while the strips of black provide a pseudo gradient that alludes to the crossfader/mixer element that a DJ uses. The logo also had to be fairly bold and sturdy to hold up well at smaller sizes on flyers and other ephemera of a like nature. 

We designed the main text/hand-lettering for the words Best and Omaha for the 2014 Best of Omaha issue of Omaha magazine.  The cover in totality was designed in collaboration with John Gawley and Ben Leuders and was printed using an innovative printing method similar to what is called a spot varnish.  This magazine cover went on to win the AIGA Gold award at the AIGA Nebraska Show event in 2014 (The highest level of award at the event) as well as the Best Magazine Cover at the 2015 Great Plains Journalism Awards .

The Enchanted Circle Tourist Map/Guide is a guide to an area in northern New Mexico known for its natural beauty and amazing sunsets. It was our job to design the front cover with images that were given to us and to redo the map on the back cover to match and be consistent with the front. Maintaining consistency, clarity and map readability were of great importance when creating this piece.

These logos were created for the re-branding of an existing Latin-French Fusion restaurant in Taos, New Mexico. The rooster was originally drawn by hand and was created as a culinary symbol of multi-cultural cuisine [since Gutiz is a fusion restaurant].
