The Holiday Inn located by the St. Louis airport was looking for a way to get more guests to visit their cafe. In an effort to boost customers they decided to not only switch to the exotic Kahve coffee bean but, also committed to brewing fresh pots daily.
This will be where the all important promotion comes in. They were looking for a tent card to be used at the front desk and in rooms, as well as a sticker design to accompany the tent cards.

Taylor&Mathis is a real estate company that specializes in office building, suburban office parks and mixed-use projects. They needed a flyer for a new space opening up in the Tampa area and I was happy to oblige them with a beautifully designed flyer… or should I say, I’m glad they thought it was a beautiful flyer.
Modern logo design for a D.C. pastry company that plays off the name without using… a bird? yeah, I think I can do that.
I really fell in love with the idea of not incorporating an actual bird into this logo. I always enjoy logos that goes beyond the surface and create a deeper meaning.
One main aspect of this design, was color. As the pastry chef’s last name is Blackburd, using black was the natural choice. In most fruits and even vegetables labeled as being black( i.e. blackberry, black beans ), the color is actually not black and has more of a purple of red hue. I channeled that into this logo by not only using an 85% black but also infusing it with a touch of purple. I felt this gave the logo what it needed to stand out.
This is an old project that almost no one saw. The box design plays off of the company’s line of blooming teas. Therefore… the box blossoms when it’s opened. I revisited it a few months back and think I got something special.
