Here’s something different. These marks are for the yet to published novel, The Wyldes of Portlandia. It’s a supernatural western, in case you couldn’t tell. There are cowboys and zombies and such. Fun stuff. Hmmm…does the fact that zombies like to gnaw on human flesh qualify this as food-related? Maybe not.
Bludgeon Brewery, 2010
For the Bludgeon logo, we created a rough, abrassive text solution with just a little bit of whimsy. The crown is part king and part jester, perfect for a brewery started by a couple of joksters.
Forager Creative, 2010
A little self promotion never hurts. The bird in our logo is a scrub jay, a delightful local bird that spends an inordinate amount of time hopping in search of delicious, all-natural bugs. Well, they think they’re tasty.
CEA, New York, 2010
The Culinary Entertainment Agency came to us with a simple request: create a logo that speaks to their commitment to the talented chefs, authors, and other creative folks they represent. Done and done.
Pug faces are tricky, as we discovered when tasked with creating a very simple icon for Boodapug, a pug-friendly apparel and more company in Portland. Tricky, but fun. To see what Boodapug is all about, check out www.boodapug.com or pay a visit to their tumblr page.
San Jose Stealth/Terry Smith Creations, 2003*
As a professional lacrosse team, the Stealth needed a logo that was big, a little scary, and perfectly suited for fans that love fast-paced action. Terry Smith provided the ninja, Rob did the rest. Rob also worked with TSC to design uniforms for the team.
San Jose CyberRays/Terry Smith Creations, 2001*
Sadly, the CyberRays no longer exist, but this is still a really cool logo. After co-designing the logo, Rob continued to work closely with the team, designing season tickets, media guides, marketing materials, and even the exterior of the team SUV. BONUS: the CyberRays won the WUSA Championship in their first season. Long live the Rays!
San Jose Sharks/Terry Smith Creations, 2008*
A different take on the Sharks redesigned logo for the team’s non-profit organization. An interesting project in that the idea was to take a sports team logo and transform it into a cleaner, more institutional logo.
San Jose Sharks/Terry Smith Creations, 2007*
For the redesign of the NHL’s San Jose Sharks logo, the team wanted a cleaner, more dangerous, and more in motion animal. The results speak for themselves. Rob also worked with TSC to create uniforms and various marketing materials for the Sharks.
San Jose Sharks/Terry Smith Creations, 2010*
For the Sharks 20th Anniversary Rob once again worked with Terry Smith to create a series of marks and patches that could work on uniforms, signs, advertisements, and more (like say, wine bottles, for instance).
8Legged Entertainment, 2008
For the “Tako 4 America” campaign, we also created an “Octocratic” logo for the party convention. Not sure what kind of a turnout they had since it took place underwater.
8Legged Entertainment, 2008
In 2008, Tako the Octopus ran for president…and lost, obviously. But we still think the logo system we designed was a winner. Very patriotic for an octopus.
