They deliver the industry’s only true cyber resilience optimization solution that looks at IT security and financial controls/insurance to create an integrated, holistic technology and financial risk solution that can evolve with each client as the risk landscape shifts.
We partnered with Axio to develop a brand that better reflects their business. Starting with a new visual system and fresh color palette, we created a suite of sales materials and updated their website. The line graphics in the visual system are reflective of the Axio Quadrants – a proprietary tool that plays a key role in Axio’s methodology - paired with an expanded headline font and crisp illustrations to create a bold, confident new look.
Cyber risk is fraught with unknowns. But Axio’s innovative approach arms companies with the insights and abilities to make informed decisions, minimize risk, and optimize investment. (Developed at Hugo Collective)

Tech startup RoBotany had secured $35 million in funding to build its first commercial-scale indoor vertical farm, and was eager to come out of stealth mode with a new, consumer-facing brand. Rebranding as Fifth Season, we partnered with the team to create a new look and feel that reflects their goal of reinventing the produce category, bringing consumers back to eating locally-grown fresh produce, through tech enabled vertical farming. Powered by a team of locals and autonomous robots, the first farm is located outside Pittsburgh, in a historically steel-focused town called Braddock. With an aggressive launch plan, we created the new logo, packaging, interim website, copywriting, building signage and promo materials. The brand officially launched to the public in Jan 2020, with products due to appear in stores next month. (Developed at Hugo Collective)
We set out to transform Keurig into a brewing system that could stand for much more than just coffee. Building off the characteristics of simplicity, consistency, convenience and personalization, we developed a positioning centered on how Keurig makes it easy to make the things that make your day. We crafted a new identity and system inspired by the ease of the push of a button and the choice of pods offered by the Keurig system. (Developed at Prophet w/ Christian Dierig and Josh Levi)
During the summer of 2011, I was lucky enough to participate in the typography summer workshop at the Basel School of Design. This was a proposed poster for the 'Type in Motion Exhibition' at the Museum für Gestaltung.
As MetLife underwent a period of economic and technological change, they sought to create a new identity that reflected forward-looking strategy. We developed the partnership “M” monogram to represent the meeting point of two things. The overlay in the "M" then developed into the filmstrip system that allowed for storytelling across all communications and business units.
Following the visual identity rollout, the team was tasked to develop environmental branding throughout MetLife offices around the globe. Modern, Optimistic, Simple, and Tells a Story were the characteristics used in all the visuals to be considered on-brand. The wall coverings were grouped into four collections that work together to tell different aspects of the MetLife story: Core Brand, Heritage, Global Reach and Science of Understanding.

Established in 1993, non-profit organization Seeds of Peace inspires and cultivates new generations of leaders to come together and transform conflict.

In 2015, I was asked to create a graphic illustration as part of a collection of artists for an event called Immigrant Neighbors. The postcards would be handed out to raise money to benefit the important work of the Legal Aid Society Immigration Law Unit. My message was a simple: Protest against the border wall proposed by the 45th President of the United States. After the event, hand screen-printed bags were produced and handed out to the public.
Proposed identity for The Wharton Center, Michigan State University’s performing arts center. The primary mark of the identity is inspired by the shape of the building, the audience gallery and a smile. All three aspects play a key role in the experience of seeing a performance at The Wharton Center. Building on this idea, the simple mark turned into dynamic patterns and graphics to emulate dance, theater, music, and all things performance. (Developed at Prophet)
