We partner with brands that have a story to tell. It’s our job to bring those stories to life, through clever characters, inventive illustrations, and bold brand design. Here are a few of our favorite illustration and branding case studies.
In the summer of 2020, we partnered with Leaping Daisy Ranch's owners to create a visual brand system for their off-grid getaway in the Sierra Nevadas. Working on their visual identity with a heavy dose of inspiration from nature and the outdoors became one of our favorite brand projects of the year, and it is still a growing partnership that we hope to continue with more projects to come.
We began our long partnership with the fine folks at Good Use — a startup building a global community of giving — at the end of 2019. Initially, we began working with Good Use on crafting a new brand but quickly moved into taking their current brand’s illustration style to new heights. We ended up working with the Good Use team, both in-person and online, for close to a year and created a large volume of illustrations and designs.
A dream project for any branding studio or freelancer is creating branding for a brewery. So in the spring of 2019, we decided we didn’t need to wait for a brewery to come to us. We could create one from scratch, just for the fun of it. Thus was born Bird Rock Brewing Co., a San Diego-based brewery right in the heart of Bird Rock's neighborhood. Below you'll find the story of the project creation, from early sketches to the finished product. We hope you'll enjoy it!
At the beginning of 2019, we partnered with Sureify to develop a unique illustration style and create illustrations for their new marketing site. The project spanned a couple of months and we developed a lasting friendship that continues to this day with a range of different projects. Below you'll learn more about our partnership and how we created their illustration style.
