Rewined Candles are smart, smell great and now have a brand new logo and packaging. These handsome candles are all natural soy wax candles poured into discarded wine bottles. They have a family of intoxicating scents which are all designed to mimic flavors and aromas you find in your favorite varietals of wines. Adam came to us looking to enhance his current packaging. We redesigned his logo using hand-drawn type and redesigned his kraft paper labels with simple typography and a layered labeling system. Each candle has a  “vintage and producer” label, allowing each candle to be signed and dated by the candle maker. A wood veneer wax topper sits on top of the candle to keep them clean and free of dust before use. Read the rest of this entry »

We frequent the shop and it’s eclectic collection of merchandise for inspiration. It’s such a unique place, we just had to share. Read the rest of this entry »

October 17, 2011

We recently formed an exciting new relationship with the Gibbes Museum of Art.

Olde Savannah Flooring

October 10, 2011

Olde Savannah Flooring is a custom wood flooring company out of Atlanta Georgia. Their hardwood floors are crafted by hand using European and old world techniques for distressing and finishing. Everything from floor patterns to color and finishing is completely custom and always executed to perfection. Their body of work was truly inspiring to us as we worked on their logo. We sought to capture their attention to detail in their new brand. We are in the process of re-designing their stationery package and website and look forward to sharing those with you soon.

California African American Museum

September 29, 2011

The California African American Museum (CAAM) is in the midst of a major expansion that will enable the museum to expand its programming and curatorial activities. We were honored to be asked to help showcase the new design in this brochure we recently completed for them. The expansion of the building is beautifully designed by Huff + Gooden Architects. We worked closely with the team at Huff + Gooden while designing this piece. A key feature of the design of this new building is an exterior translucent glass scrim “word wall” which is reflective during the day but at night is backlit causing it to have a luminous glow.
