Isalita is a Mexico City street-food inspired restaurant in downtown Ann Arbor. The logo and other imagery was inspired by traditional wood carvings by the Mexican Artist Artemio Rodriguez. Each icon was hand carved into lino, printed, and transformed into vector art for use on menus, t-shirts, business cards and take-out bags.
Mikette is a French restaurant located in Ann Arbor, MI. The menu is heavily influenced by the cuisine of Southern France and the Provence region, thus I utilized the iconic bee symbol in the logo. In addition to developing the logo, I established the branding for the restaurant and designed all supporting collateral.
Stony Lake Brewing Company
Stony Lake Brewing Co. is a microbrewery in Saline, MI. For this client, I developed the logo, branding, and assisted with marketing efforts. For the logo, I used a section of the shoreline of Stony Lake where the owner's family cottage is located. This shoreline can also be interpreted as the foam on a beer glass.
It’s 3 am on the last night of final’s week. You just left the UGLi. Bert’s Café closed two hours ago; the street is desolate, lined with reminders that the restaurants and cafes are “closed.” Then, just as you’ve conceded to starvation, a familiar aroma reignites your senses and you see a warm, comforting glow radiating from the nocturnal mobile bakery, Starry Pied. Mmmm…the memorable smell of Pie Bites and coffee; the blissful snack shared by students across campus to refuel after a long, studious night (or maybe a night out). They don’t say “stressed is desserts spelled backwards” for nothing.
