The Luminary Center for the Arts is located in St. Louis, MO. and is a place for artistic research, production and presentation. I was asked to collaborate with Vadim Gershman on creating a brand identity for the center. The logo implies three-dimensional space while still existing as a two-dimensional mark. The implied space and architecture represents the Luminary Center and how it functions in the community as an open, experimental forum. The logo is a modular system further emphasizing the experimental nature of The Luminary.
Cirque du Soleil is a group of performers self-described as a 'dramatic mix of circus arts and street entertainment'. The current advertising and branding is mostly geared towards children.

27 is a brand of wine based off of the traditions of Morse code. The winery is based in California where the first trans-Pacific flight took off from and was the first flight to use radio telegraph communications. Morse code is an internationally recognized language that was used heavily in the 1900s primarily in radio transmissions. The number 27 was shorthand for the word Priority meaning that the message being received was of high importance. The 27 brand uses black and white 1930’s photography as well a primarily black and white color pallet, also, the labels are based on QSL radio cards from that same time period; all resulting in an unique, secretive identity.

LØM mats are delivered pre-seeded with hand picked flower seeds. The mats are rolled out and laid flat on soil for easy and quick growing.

These hand crafted designer gardens all use flowers that will return the following season. The cap of the tube packaging can be used as a vase once flowers have bloomed.
