To quote a popular yet shitty song, “It’s Been a While…”

Yes it has been a while. It’s mostly been because 2018 has been one hell of a year. I mean, we’ve been really, ridiculously busy with work. And the work’s been pretty awesome. And we aren’t even done with 2018 yet.

This year’s had some of our best branding & interactive work to date. With 2017 having ended on a pretty high note, we knew we needed to take that note up an octave or two. We took a hard look at the things we were doing well and the lessons we learned, and began to fine-tune just about every part of our process. We grew the team a bit (yay Zarah!), we collaborated with some highly talented people, and most of all we partnered with some pretty awesome clients along the way. Here’s a few samples of this year’s finest

 

Arxspan

We completed the rebrand of this awesome tech company with a cloud-based ELN (electronic lab notebook) application for research and labs teams ranging from pharmaceutical companies to food & manufacturing. This was a full-rebrand of their company & materials, as well as a new website that you can check out here. Case study will be coming soon!

 

Underscore.vc

We worked with Underscore.vc on branding their “Blockchain Core.Summit” back in April. The theme was centered around the future of Blockchain, and starting the conversation around that. This undertaking involved creating a full suite of illustrations and beautiful motion graphics, resulting in a summit that was just a straight-up hit. Coming to a known.case study page near you. In the meantime, check out the motion reel we created.

 

Preserve Brands

Preserve Brands has been a long-time client of ours, and up until recently was mostly B2B wholesale. While we redesigned their website towards the end of last year, we worked with them to build and launch their e-commerce presence for both Preserve Brands and their little sister brand, Piper By Preserve Brands. If you’re into beautiful gift packaging that’s also eco-friendly and 10x’s more special than Hallmark, take out that credit card and get yourself something pretty.

 

Netbrain Technologies

Another veteran client, we’ve worked with Netbrain Technologies on ten of their tradeshow booths in the past three years. Yes, you read that correctly—ten. The most recent one was for their booth at CiscoLIVE 2018 Orlando, which made an impressive standing at the convention. We also did design of two other Netbrain spaces at the convention, including a coffee bar. Coffee’s great and so are you, Netbrain Technologies.

 

Aside from these projects, we’ve got some heavy hitters in the works coming your way too, so stay tuned!
