Rouge started as a simple branding project, playing on the 'timeless' use of the word as a vintage descriptor for blush. With a rose as the centerpiece requested by the client, I played with incorporating it into a variety of slab-serif typefaces for a classy look.

SteelTree was a project with little direction other than a web company and a tree motif.

The architecture firm Om Design needed a simplified identity that could bring the culturally loaded symbol into a modernized form that still captured the vibrant energy of its origin.
