CHERRY GROVE STORIES

This movie logo epitomizes the unique character of Cherry Grove, a community on Fire Island, New York, which became a safe haven for gays during 1960s through 90s when two men holding hands in public could result in arrest. In the documentary, residents share stories of typical weekend happenings: elaborate costume parties, flamboyant drag shows, celebrity visitors, and an infamous hookup spot.

SIERRA CLUB / 125th Anniversary

Sierra Club, America’s largest grassroots environmental organization, is celebrating a big birthday – 125! To mark the special event, we created a commemorative logo using the concentric circles of tree rings to represent their ongoing growth and development. In infographic style, two clean lines point toward inception and this milestone anniversary.

VYOU

Vyou is a new Roku channel for artistic short films from emerging videographers and experimental work from established directors. Simple letter shapes read perfectly when sized for those small app buttons. To stand out on the visually busy streaming player screen, we grounded this logo in atypical pink. Reflections of kaleidoscopic bokeh symbolize Vyou’s creative bent.

ERT

The Palo Alto Soccer Club and Juventus have joined forces to create Elite Regional Training (ERT), providing talented youth soccer players with the opportunity to play at higher levels and boost chances for admission to the National Soccer Academy. To reflect this merging of efforts, we combined elements from both clubs to create the “soccer ball” at the center of the logo.

Addison Elementary School

WHOOSH! We designed this “Super Incredible” new logo for the superhero-themed auction and a special-edition line of spirit apparel for Addison Elementary School’s fundraising drive. The school is our 2015 pay-it-forward project, and we think these incredible kids, parents and supporters are going to look ... well ... super in the irresistible logo wear.
