Harvest Roots Ferments creates a variety of fermented foods and beverages, including kimchi, sauerkraut, curtido, beet kvass, and the ever-popular kombucha. Their model is focused on the highest-possible quality of sourced produce (mostly local and organic ingredients), aligned with a love of what fermentation can do when combined with a culinary focus on flavor. As the business grows from local health food shops to regional Whole Foods stores, so does their need for great branding and getting their message across effectively.

gambit cycle coaching

logo, branding, copywriting, jersey design

This mark references a few hallmarks of cycling that only cyclists would know: The sport we think of as "chess on wheels" (also where the term gambit originates), and the "flamme rouge", the triangular flag that marks the point in the race with only one kilometer remaining. This is the moment when a well-coached cyclist has his day.

Created for a carbon footprint app from students at the University of Wisconsin, this mark gets the quick and dirty treatment. Not every logo needs to be elegant and sophisticated; sometimes it needs to get the whole story across quickly while giving a sense of a product's positive energy.

BFF Bikes is a woman-owned, women-focused bike shop in Chicago. They came on the scene just at the right time, simultaneously creating and riding the exciting new wave of interest in women's cycling in all its facets: commuting, style, racing, and community. Their concept for the logo was pre-ordained by the owners and I was simply hired to make it work as a mark. The design has been evolved and improved over the years, but I'm proud to have been a part of their origins.

ha-lup-ka

logo, business cards, website, bike frame inlay

In my family, our last name is really its own unique brand, but the whale emerged as a symbol of our family heritage. I first put this image on the top tube of my bicycle as a reminder of where I come from, of what it takes to do good work, of the folks who got me to where I am. This inspires me to better work, whether on the bike or at my laptop. 

Over time, it gradually became my personal brand, and one which I'm proud to carry over into my professional world, as they aren't really distinct areas of my life anyway.
