2018 Mad & Dusty Logo Round Up

2018-Logo-Roundup-Blog.jpg

For the billionth time, I’ll say it “How is it 2019?!” Like every year, there were ups and downs. All in all, I’m looking back on 2018 pretty fondly. (I mean, 2018 is the year we became pregnant with our sweet twins. Finally getting those interns I’ve been needing!)

2018 was a fun year for logos here in the studio. We worked with makers, small businesses, solopreneurs and nonprofits. One thing they all had in common - each of these folks is making the world a better and more hopeful place through their work. Dusty and I are beyond honored to be a part of their story. Here’s a look back at the logos we created in 2018:

Chatterbomb Logo Design

ChatterBomb

ChatterBomb is a clothing company that celebrates encouragement and community. Jessica’s punchy shirts feature a message on the inside, close to the heart where it matters most. Her logo has a vintage flare and bold presence to match the brand’s personality.

Little Moon Rising Logo Design

Becca is a childbirth educator and natural remedy maker. (Her Elderberry Syrup will banish any cough or cold.)

Broadview Logo Design

Broadview Brand Strategy

Bethany launched her consulting firm, Broadview to help small businesses come up with a marketing strategy that communicates with customers in a way that connects. (Psst, She does free consults!!) As small business owners, we’re often too focused on the details of our business to know how to communicate our story to customers. Her logo is a nod to that old saying “Can’t see the forest for the trees.”

The Busy Bead Logo Design

The Busy Bead

Emma Kenney, a retired NICU nurse, created The Busy Bead out of her love for making and desire to share. She creates nature inspired jewelry with gems and stones designed to heal. Her logo is a cute and playful take on the name. (I have this bracelet and I wear it all the time!)

Behind the Scenes: A Styled Shoot for Marie Mae Co

Styled shoots have been one of my favorite projects lately. I love talking through the product and brand story with the client. Finding props, and then making shot lists and story boards - it's this magical combination of planning and treasure hunting.

For this shoot with Marie Mae Co., I teamed up with the lovely Angie Webb. She took care of photos and lighting, which allowed me to be all in when it came to styling. We had 4-5 major "scenes" for this shoot and about 10 products all together.

We shot the entire session at Ember Hot Yoga in Downtown Woodstock. Amazing natural light and white walls made for photo shoot heaven. 

One under appreciated skill is how to drop things beautifully. I think it's something I learned in art school. Styling photos is so similar to painting - laying out the composition, considering colors - it's all there.

Product photos have to tell the story for customers who are too busy to read your product descriptions (i.e. everyone). Like most visuals, product photos work as the receptionist. Good photography is like a warm welcome to your audience. It should say, "You're in the right place. This is for you."

Hope you enjoyed this behind the scenes peek! You can see the final pieces on this page. If you're interested in a photo shoot for your company, don't hesitate to reach out. Contact us to get a list of current rates in your inbox.

Hugs!
