work wednesday: polis ventures.

we recently developed branding for a new investment company, polis ventures. they envisioned a modern yet traditional logo that reflected growth, elevation and also gave us the freedom to explore the acropolis and spartan/greek elements. their new business cards were letterpress on a double thick cover stock. the navy and grey logo stands alone on the front and their contact information is on the back. we wish raheem + omar best of luck in their new endeavor!

work wednesday: love me do photography.

the ladies of love me do photography were looking for a fresh new logo that represented their organic and artistic style. they loved the idea of combining a girly handwritten script with some simple typography. this is where we called in one of our favorite calligraphers, lindsey bee. lindsey created a few variations of cursive lettering for us to work with, along with some drawn floral and leaf elements. as you can see in our initial black and white sketches, we worked together to find the perfect balance of rustic and modern style. we are pleased with how the final logo turned out and feel it fits the personalities of the girls at love me do perfectly!

work wednesday: kristel closets.

kristel closets, inc. is an image consulting + personal shopping agency owned by megan kristel. with offices in philadelphia and the washington d.c. area, they service clients throughout pennsylvania, new jersey, delaware, maryland and virginia. they provide individual/corporate closet and wardrobe edits and personal styling/shopping services for both men and women. the well dressed woman is their monthly workshop held in their ardmore, pennsylvania studio. if that isn’t enough, megan also has her own blog the well dressed life!

when megan came to us she already had the existing logo for kristel closets, inc. she was in the process of starting a training branch of the company, style maker university. this is where she would teach aspiring stylists the fundamentals of earning a living in the styling/personal shopping world. in addition, we designed a logo for megankristel.com (launching soon!) which will be the umbrella company for both kristel closets, inc. and style maker university.

megan wanted her new logos to reflect the look of the existing mark for kristel closets, inc. she wanted the style to be simple, clean, modern and orange!

work wednesday: alexandra & company.

2010 holiday card for dc event planners alexandra & company. since the weather is getting cooler and the holidays are getting closer, it is time to start thinking about your holiday greeting cards!

alexandra’s card was an oversized, double-sided letterpressed card. she asked that we use her company blue and wanted something whimsical and wintry.
during the design process, a new company logo was born!

shortly after the cards, we created a logo for alexandra’s editquette classes how to hold fork.

wag.

here is a fun logo we designed for WAG: Whole Animal Gym. this gym recently opened in philly and is the city’s first veterinary rehabilitation center offering acupuncture, laser, and hydrotherapy treatments. they have a great little gym for dogs who might need to lose a little weight and get back on their feet. i (cheyenne) got the grand tour this week along with my 12-year old pitbull mix, milo, who had some treatment for his arthritis. he thoroughly enjoyed the special attention and just adores the owner/medical director tina! here are some pics from our visit…


the space is filled with a beautiful mural of dancing doggies.

milo waiting patiently for his turn. check out the doggie training course!

1st treatment of laser. this is used to stimulate tissues and help with muscle and arthritis pain.

hydrotherapy for restoring mobility and coordination. milo loves the water, but wasn’t too sure about the moving treadmill. he got the hang of it quickly.
later that evening…
