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.
Happy & Healthy Pets
The Animal Hospital at Reems Creek has been serving the Asheville area since 2003. They recently reached out to us for a new logo and identity system, website, and exterior sign. The hospital is a good example of a client who had a clear vision of their identity but needed a creative partner to make that vision realized. The solution is an organized arrangement of elements to clearly define their name and type of pets they treat.
Make A Mark 2019
828:design recently participated in Asheville’s 2019 Make A Mark “Make-a-Thon” event. The Make-a-thon is a 12-hour design and development marathon benefitting local humanitarian causes. We worked with Jewish Family Services of WNC to redesign their website and bring awareness to the region that the organization offers support to people of all faiths. The new website will launch sometime in December. The team consisted of Chris Hunter from 828:design, Jennifer Drum from Pixel Princes Design, Mike Conrad from ENXO, and Leah Shapiro from JB Media Group.
Commitment to Clear Communication
828:design recently launched a new website for friends at Elly Wells Marketing + Project Management. Their focus is on the environment, arts, healthcare, nonprofits, and family-held businesses. We have partnered with Elly on a number of Asheville clients including Mercy Urgent Care, Roberts & Stevens, Joel Adams and The Hands of Sean Perry.

Moved In and Unpacking
On July 1st, we officially relocated to a great new spot at 60 North Market Street in downtown Asheville. We're on street level in suite C300 located between the back side of Thomas Wolfe Memorial/Museum and Mojo Co-working (if you know where those are). Stop by and see us sometime!
Igniting Creativity with Moog
828:design teamed up with Michelle Moog-Koussa, Executive Director of the Bob Moog Foundation, to create this brochure that highlights the foundation’s creativity and critical thinking mission. They provide hands-on, immersive opportunities for children and adults to explore and engage with the science of sound through Dr. Bob’s SoundSchool and the newly realized Moogseum, opening this Thursday, May 23rd.
Custom Site for Custom Furniture
We’ve launched a new website for Sherrill Furniture, just in time for the 2019 Spring Furniture Market in High Point, North Carolina. The site has multiple custom page layouts and functions to help viewers build their perfect custom furniture pieces. It also tells the hand-crafted Made in USA story of Sherrill and showcases their unique construction process.
828:design is proud to be a sponsor of the 9th Annual ReHappening, hosted by the Black Mountain College Museum and Arts Center. The event is inspired by “Happenings” that originated at the college nearly 65 years ago. 828 donated design services for the event, in the form of promotional posters, ads, tickets and the event program. Check out the unique event this Saturday, March 30th.
Lexington Home Brands is a global leader in the design, sourcing, manufacturing and lifestyle marketing of upscale home furnishings. 828:design led their site redesign project which included brand refinements and a site architecture strategy that emphasizes their six unique indoor and outdoor furniture brands. We partnered with E Dreamz who wove our design and front-end development work with Lexington’s extensive product database.
