Staying Afloat

Chalk another one up for 2020! We're NOT excited to announce that our office was recently flooded due to a sprinkler incident. We're working hard… remotely :) while our floors and walls are being repaired. Please know that we're here for you and we can be reached by phone, email, or through our contact form. We can't wait to see clients in-person again soon, with a shiny new stained concrete floor!

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.

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.
