I have been working on more signage for the new bowling alley, Plank, in Oakland's Jack London Square. I have done a series of interior signs. Keep your eyes pealed, the soft openings are beginning soon!

I just finished up signs for a new bowling alley that is in the works for Jack London Square called Plank. The alley will have a nautical, steam punk vibe to it. The signs, which will be outside had to have a retro quality with a nice balance of modernity. Thanks to the lovely Alexandra Silverman, who is working on the interior design, I was able to take part in a great, fast project!

In celebration of the return of Milton and Small, I am posting their business card. It has been a little over a year but they are back! They are great folks and they have a great product, with a new chicory version to be added to their line. Let me remind you that I was thrilled to have won the amazing Communication Arts Design Award with the packaging I designed for M&S, so I have a very special place in my heart for my client.
I will keep you updated when their coffee hits the shelves once more.

Lucy Cuneo's photography website looks beautiful! She and her husband have recently relocated to Charleston, SC and have updated their site. I cannot take credit for the site but I can say they have made their logo I designed for them look even more lovely!

Solstice Press has done an amazing job printing the Fishkill Farms brochure and poster. This is the image they have posted on Instagram. Can't wait to pick them up and see them with my own eyes!
Early last year, Luke Chappell of Luke's Local Delivery came to me to design a new logo for his delivery business. He was not sure what he wanted but it needed to be genuine and timeless.
After much brainstorming, I came up with the idea of using a fox for the mark. In my research I found, that in alchemy, the fox was considered the cultivator of the Elixir of Life. In Northern Native American tribes the fox is considered a noble messenger. This was perfect symbolism for Luke's company because it felt in line with his philosophy. He considers it very important to run a company that is values-driven, that is environmentally sustainable and is good for the local economy. (His parents are well known for such ethical business practices, Tom and Kate, who founded Tom's of Maine, in 1970.)
As for the style of the mark, Luke decided on a woodblock feel. Because I do not consider myself an illustrator, this was outside of my comfort zone. Of course, being in that zone always ends up being the best experience for a designer, and Luke was very happy with his new logo!
