We were asked to help promote Collected Detroit’s exhibit Deeply Detroit, which presents work by area artists and artists from around the world who have local ties. When the term “Detroit roots” surfaced, the main image quickly emerged and we applied it to a full-page print ad, posters, and several online applications.
Chelsea State Bank wanted to communicate that their online banking services are alive and well. Our goal was to clearly put forward their message with a minimum of words and an evocative image. The resulting direct mail campaign will be in circulation through September, 2019.
More often than not, advertising for legal services employs an image of a gavel. We took advantage of that cliche and had some fun with it in order to promote Dr. Palmer Morrel-Samuels, an experienced witness in employment discrimination litigation. These ads for print and online publications are meant to attract the eyes and interest of defense attorneys that rely on accurate and concise evaluation of statistical analysis.
Last fall we had the opportunity to design an identity and labels for High Style Brewing Co. based in San Diego. They’re on the forefront of cannabis infused non-alcoholic craft beer. Currently we’ve assisted in producing marketing materials and some advertising to help get the word out on this innovative product.
We’ve been designing the Chelsea Chamber Players’ holiday posters for... wait for it... over twenty years. This selection of five poster designs from years past have been reproduced as holiday cards and are on sale at Bumbles Dry Goods in Chelsea, Michigan. Proceeds from sales go to the Chelsea Chamber Players.
The Kresge Foundation is a private, national foundation that works to expand opportunities in America’s cities through grantmaking and social investing in arts and cultural, educational, environmental, health, human services and community development in Detroit. We had the good fortune to design this year’s annual report which tells the story of how the foundation is evolving and expanding cross-disciplinary investments and partnerships to address intractable problems in America’s cities.

The Exhibition will be up from September 12-October 13, 2018 with a reception Friday, September 14, 5-8 pm, and a Gallery Talk Thursday, September 20 at 6 pm.
Unless you are a professional in the hospitality business, you probably don't recognize the name Horst Schulze. Think maverick combined with titan and you're getting warm. The design of his logo and business cards was meant to reflect the legendary hotelier: simple, sophisticated, classy. Thanks to Ann Arbor's Foresight Group for the foil stamped cards.
I know a guy who hosts a 2-day bike/camping event annually (this is the 31st year). Can't say where, can't say when, can't say much of anything, other than this: If you participate, you get one of these stickers we designed. Mysterious, no?
Another solid year of growth and service to the communities they serve from Chelsea State Bank.
Trust your pets to the person who invests in their corporate identity, a motto to live by for sure. We designed the logo and business cards to reflect Rebecca Indianer's business, and her personality: sharp, fresh, and to the point.
On Sunday, March 18th, the Chelsea Chamber Players will perform Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf. This family concert starts at 3:00pm in the historic Chelsea Depot in downtown Chelsea. It's another in a long line of memorable concerts that the CCP has presented to our community over the years, and we're always pleased to have an opportunity to help promote them.
Thanks to Peter Gahan of Detroit Art Specialists, these portraits have found a home at The Kresge Foundation in Troy, Michigan, from January of this year until December 2019.
