New Website: 1225 Designs

It was a pleasure to work with Katie Buck, a DC-area interior designer, to launch a new website for her firm 1225 Designs. We utilized her existing branding for a custom-designed background pattern and applied her color palette to a clean and contemporary layout for a fresh presentation of her work.

Rack Cards: Pace Development and Shannon Joseph

Clients Pace Development Group and Shannon Joseph Interiors recently enjoyed the honor having a project chosen for the Dilworth Home Tour .  The featured home was Shannon's own residence, built last year by Pace.  The two companies served as co-sponsors in the popular home tour.

For each of them, we created a simple, two-sided rack card to display at the home during the tour.

I am always so grateful to work with creative professionals, especially when they are good at what they do. Putting some polish on the branding efforts of a talented interior designer is fun work!

I am pleased to share the new logo and website of interior designer Shannon Joseph -- a simple presentation of some great photography of some great design work.

New Signage: K. Interiors

I am tickled with the beautiful sign erected this week at 708 East Boulevard. Clients K. Interiors, Deep Branch, and Heidi Kirschner have inhabited a new space in this old Dilworth house and we worked hard at the end of last year to design signage that would reflect their impeccable taste, clean aesthetic, and provide good visibility in their new high-traffic spot.

We created a metal sign with modular elements that would allow them flexibility as they took on new residents.  Primary letters are raised, with secondary lines printed, a solution that provided the drama of three-dimensional signage while allowing the flexiblity of providing additional information at a scale that wasn't cut out for diecut lettering.

Printer/Manufacturer Pheonix Signs was terrific to work with and produced a beautiful sign that my cursory photos are not doing justice.

Branding and Website: Bronwyn Designs

I am pleased to share the just-launched branding and website of Charlotte interior designer Bronwyn Ford. Her work is lovely and has been captured beautifully by Ashley Sellner Photography in this new portfolio and blog site.  Congratulations and thanks, Bronwyn!

Rebranding: Good Manors Interior Design

After 14 years in business with the same business card and no website, interior designer Nancy Maloney was ready to update her marketing materials to reflect her professionalism and success.

We freshened her logo with a new rendering by illustrator and architectural designer Michelle Sutton, and modernized the type selections and layout - all with the intention of honoring her original design.

BEFORE: Original Business Card

Using a swatch from a favorite wallcovering, we developed a pattern for use on the rear of her business card and as a background for her website.  Her new cards were printed on extra-heavy linen cardstock with rounded corners and custom 3x3 sizing.

AFTER: New Good Manors Business Card and LogoGood Manors' website features galleries of past projects, organized by room, as well as a blog that pairs before and after images with descriptions of projects.  Photography Ashley Sellner provided some stunning images of Nancy and Lauren in the studio, as well as some great interior shots of recent jobs.
