Black Balsam Wealth Advisors helps map a path for families and businesses to create, preserve, and transfer their wealth. They are partners with Northwestern Mutual, a 160 year old national brand with strict co-branding guidelines that need to be met and approved for use. Our solution adopts familiar navigation imagery to connect the name Black Balsam (a local hiking mecca) and the financial navigation services they offer to their clients.
The New Frontier
The Partnership (Henderson County Partnership for Economic Development) held its first Annual Event since 2019 on September 30th, at Jeter Mountain Farm. What a great event! We worked with the organization to help realize their theme of The New Frontier, which highlights the group's historic efforts to help grow Henderson County's various manufacturing sectors. Our services included the design of their annual report, report envelope, event invitation eblast, and event banner. On to 2022/23!
History In the Making
It has been a pleasure working with the Dry Ridge Historical Museum as they prepare to reopen in a new building at Lake Louise Park in Weaverville this summer. Many facts were learned about Weaverville, Reems Creek, and Flat Creek townships during our deep dive research for the new identity. The selected design incorporates the Dry Ridge, Lake Louise, and the sun into a quilt-pattern-inspired mark.
Your Home Your Office
Your Home Your Office is a website that features products from seven different Sherrill Furniture companies. 828:design worked with Sherrill to create a space that gathers home office products from their different brands. As the workforce adjusts to Covid-19, Sherrill facilitates the search for heirloom home office pieces, while increasing awareness of the entire parent company's offerings. Site database development by Integritive. To see more of our website work, visit our Websites page.

Spark of Inspiration
It was a pleasure to work on a new identity system for ArtSpace Charter School. It's fulfilling to work with a fun, creative group of people who are open to exploring and molding unique design solutions. The goal for this project was a combination of representing the sparks of inspiration in learning, and embodying the playful spirit of the students and staff that make up the school. We're excited to see how the school continues to grow, and how the new identity fits into their story.
Fun in the Mud
Really excited about the relationship we started with Muddy Sneakers last year to revamp their Pathways newsletter and appeal mailer design. These important pieces keep schools and stakeholders up to date on their goals and accomplishments. So happy to support their mission of experiential outdoor science education for North Carolina 5th Graders.
