Play crafts is a start-up company designing web tools for crafters, specifically quilters, to share their ideas and be inspired by designs. They had a lot of ideas but needed a way to bring them together in a whimsical design that could work across all their applications. I worked by hand to create the button image to give it more of a "crafty" feel. The rest of the collateral for this brand is yet to be released.
Huck Wirtz is an easy guy to find on even the busiest film set. You just scan the crowd for a straw cowboy hat. When he decided to open his own company down in Louisiana he needed a business card that would reflect his personailty and the unique location he'd chosen for his business. Inspired by type specimens from early American artistic printing and a few cowboy movies I set to work finding the right punch cuts of borders and details to make the design. The final cards were letterpressed on 300# cotton rag.
I chose a project concept, “Timeless” that fits with the mission of the brand and the history of the brand’s physical location. Neto opened its doors in the 1970s beside the historic steam clock in Gastown. I studied and sketched out a large variety of antique clock arms to come up with shapes that were incorporated into the final wordmark.
An identity and visual standards guide for Stinson Beach, a small beach community in West Marin. I worked in gouache to create a logos with a reductive vintage poster feel. The natural ragged edges that emerged from the painting were incorporated into the logo to express the off-beat vibe of the surrounding art and surfing community.
An identity and poster for the Cannes International Film Festival. I was inspired by the cut paper artwork by Henri Matisse and wondered how he might approach this project. The poster is the result of making cut paper collages to express the red carpet, the golden palm and the often off-beat vibe of French cinema.
