One Six Five
Kaleigh Shrigley and Claire Loew of One Six Five, felt that they had outgrown the original branding of their business and were in need of a refresh. They wanted something that reflected the characteristics of their jewelry — funky, bold, simplistic, and fun. I developed a logo that could pass as one of their pieces, but also bold enough to echo the entire One Six Five catalogue. I went with the shape of an eye to illustrate the unique personality and character found in each piece of the brand’s handmade jewelry. Check their pieces out!

Drose is a band from Columbus Ohio. They asked me to design a poster for a show they were having to celebrate the release of their new LP on Orange Milk Records. Musically, Drose is a different type of beast. The band members have crafted a truly unique sound(at least I think) that ranges from aggressive/experimental to noise, industrial, and metal parts of the music spectrum. For most people, the vocals are the main thing that separates Drose from the metal side of music. Throughout Boy Man Machine, Dustin’s vocals continually switch from his natural, higher-pitched singing voice to a melodic harrowing moan gasping for air. The drums are slow, deep, and devastating; the guitar is either non-existent or it comes in thick with the sound of a second guitar piercing through other sections that are receptive enough to put you into a trance. The lyrical content of Drose is very personal to Dustin—you can tell by reading them or listening closely as he sings—which was difficult to reflect in the poster design. To me, Boy Man Machine (the title of the Drose LP) symbolizes two things: the world’s growing obsession with integrating technology into every aspect of our lives, and the process of growing up to just become another cog in the machine. I wanted the poster represent all these characteristics as much as possible. I started with stark, anonymous imagery and kept it black and white to keep with the pacing of the music. I tried Then I work the typography around bounce back and fourth between human consciousness and computer programming. The posters was silk screened on french paper.
The 400 Market is a local Columbus farmer's & makers market located in the Franklinton area of Columbus, Ohio. It's hosted on Saturday mornings at 400 West Rich. This is not only the location but a building that acts as a collection of artist spaces, Strongwater Food & Spirits, & home of the market. The concept that was chosen was one that focused on the building turning into an icon since it represents one in the area being home to many artists & makers.

This project was a hypothetical rebrand for Tumblr. We worked to give Tumblr a more up to date brand that to be more artist centric & blogging freindly. We worked to make what users were posting to be what really stood out on the site whether it be an illustrator who uses the site to post their newest work or for someone who uses it blog about their recipes. We added a chat feature to allow easier communication between bloggers. Also we created a system where could categorize the blogs you follow to be into an individual feed but also keeping the endless scroll of all your blogs if you desire.
