Whoa! How is it already December? The months seem to be flying by this year! With 2016 just around the corner, we took a moment to reflect on our past year and the amazing clients we’ve had the pleasure of working with. As one of Maryland’s award-winning graphic design and branding firms, we feel extremely lucky to work with a wide variety of clients and businesses. From restaurants to yoga instructors, nonprofits to apparel brands, we enjoy breathing some fresh air and creativity into a brand’s website, logo or even their physical space.
So, without further ado, we invite you to take a look at our past year in logos. On to 2016!
The logo for 3 Brüdrer (German for “brothers”) designed by our summer intern, Grace Rudder. Specialties from the kitchen of Old Stein Inn will be packaged for sale under the brand. Bacon jam and German chocolate-covered pretzels will be available soon. Trust us, they’re delicious!
Speaking of Old Stein Inn, this German-style restaurant, located in Edgewater, Maryland, recently renovated their Biergarten to make room for their new gastropub. Bier Bär has an extensive craft beer list and a modern small plate menu. In addition to designing the logo and menu, we recorded two ads that are currently in rotation on WRNR 103.1!
We held our first ever Peppermill Bingo Night this past October. We had so much fun and we can’t wait to host another Bingo Night in the near future. To make sure you’re on our next guest list, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also purchase a “Support Local Bingo” tote, tee or tank top for $10!
Waitlessness is an App developed by Reef Point Group that allows users to check the wait times at their nearby urgent care centers and emergency rooms.
We designed these cute stickers for Ocean Conservancy, a nonprofit environmental advocacy group based in D.C. They work to keep our oceans healthy by fighting for sustainable solutions and mobilizing volunteers in ocean cleanup efforts. Did you know that millions of plastic straws pollute our seas and oceans where endangered animals like sea turtles can choke on them? Pledge to skip the straw when you go out to eat!
Becki is a fantastic yoga instructor for private and group classes in the Annapolis area. This summer we designed the logo and business cards for her practice, “Centered Spirit Yoga.” The design represents a rippling effect of calmness, starting at the center.
After the unrest and riots in Baltimore earlier this year, we launched an online campaign called Bmore Love to raise money for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metropolitan Baltimore. Through the site, artists and designers submitted artwork to be sold in the form of apparel. All proceeds were donated to the BGCMB. The original t-shirt design was hand-lettered.
Above is the logo we designed for Spark Point Fundraising, a fundraising and business development firm dedicated to nonprofits. We loved working and brainstorming with Whitney, Spark Point’s Principal and Founder on brand strategy, name development, logo and identity materials. We look forward to watching this company grow and help nonprofits achieve their missions.
The rebrand for Maryland Hall rolled out this past year with a new logo and tagline. The arches in the logo symbolizes the reoccurring shape throughout the architecture of the building and “Art for All” emphasizes the Maryland Hall’s mission to provide art to the entire community. We just finished designing the brand new Maryland Hall magazine, so be on the lookout for those in your mailboxes soon!
We always enjoy a good restaurant project and El Rancho didn’t disappoint. The final logo incorporates elements of Peruvian design and culture, not to mention the main dish of the restaurant — chicken! Who DOESN’T love Peruvian chicken? And for an added bonus: a doodle of the cutest little you ever did see wearing a Peruvian hat. We think he would make a great cartoon character.
When Scooter Revolution came to us with the idea of local scooter rentals last winter, we were excited. Our punk/skater-inspired wheel logo makes a pretty cool sticker!
Emily, born and raised in Southern Maryland, currently owns two tattoo shops in Solomons, Maryland. Southern Luck is her latest venture —an apparel company geared to those who love hunting, fishing and feel Southern pride! Our logo design references her tattoo artistry by using a handlettered style.
Urban Walls Brazil has been such a fun and interesting project to work on this past year. Through murals and workshops, Roberta Pardo creates an exchange between cultures and opens the art market between the United States and Brazil. Roberta houses Brazilian graffiti street artists, so they are able to interact with Annapolis artists and work on community art projects.
Last but not least! We created a playful logo for this Washington D.C. catering company that needed a bit of an update. We stuck with the purple that had been used on their marketing material for years, but modernized the type and had fun with the “Sinfully Delicious” tagline.
