Since teaming in 1995, we’ve produced graphic design works for independent, non-profit and select corporate clients. Our identity systems rely on a strong, unique web presence as the backbone of the brand. We develop database-backed websites with custom CMS implementations and have produced web-scraping data collection tools and other specialized web-based apps. Whatever type of identity-establishing visuals we take on we’re looking for the unique voice of that project—and with Carrie coming at it from the art side and Ben the tech our combined forces are always able to find it. We think design lies not only in the visual but in the unseen structures that support it, both aspects keep us seeking the simplest and strongest solutions.

Daniel Lee for Culver City Council

/ Political Branding / Logo, Signage, Poster, Direct Mail

For social justice activist Daniel Lee we used environmental green to set him apart from the red/white and blueness of typical campaigns. Bold logo and consistent color blocking on a range of materials made his a winning effort in a hotly contested, large market local race.
