One of my favorite types of work is identity work. Starting with a pencil and paper and wrapping up a company or organization's vision, mission, experience and impact in a single visual mark is a great challenge. These are some of my favorite logo projects.
Design: Elizabeth Bawol
1. Thirsty Fish - A marketing company with a playful vision for marketing company and organizational "stories" instead of their "pitch"
2. Seed - a woman-owned interactive think tank
3. Fast Spot - a progressive interactive company, constantly moving, innovating and exploring
3. Purple Tooth - one of my favorite's, a wine bistro with a silly, but memorable name
4. Ten Divide - a family-owned engineering consultancy based off of the division of land from the founder's ancestors, divided equally in ten parts among children
5. Cell 54 productions - a start up video and production company with an edgy backstory
6. Matt Mendelsohn Photography - a logo for a true artist of a photographer! This logo was designed combining the best elements of over 100 signatures of the photographer himself
7. Northwest Jersey Folklife Project - this logo was based off of traditional pattern making in quilts from local craftsman and folk artists
8. The Global Alternative Energy Foundation - this logo was finalized in China - while on an exploratory trip with the President of the Board - the Foundation sought to bring an end to energy poverty in western China and northwest Vietman. While the endeavor and mission were fraught with challenges, the vision was illumination through clean energy.
9. The Healing Touch - this was designed for a woman who described herself as an end-of-life caretaker and healer. She had a background in nursing, psychology, and end of life care, and we collaborated on an idea that was part rorschach ink test / part stylized hands
10. Entangled: Art & Word - this was a logo for an annual art event that combined poetry and visual art in unique pairings
11. Teacher's Hall - I have a lot of empathy for teachers, particularly those working in challenging urban environments with less resources than other districts. This logo was designed pro bono for a teacher who wanted to open up a modern restaurant space that offered food, music, but also free printers, computers and workspaces to teachers in Baltimore city.
12. Bark N' Bean - this clever local Maryland business was designed to be part coffeehouse gathering space and part dog wash
