Country Day Creative Arts Bags and Aprons

We were commissioned by the Metairie Park Country Day School’s Creative Arts Summer program to create a series of canvas bags and aprons, each using one icon and one word. We were given free rein to do whatever we wanted, so we created a pattern with each icon to illustrate its corresponding word. See the gallery above for the each icon, followed by the pattern we created using it.

This project was a lot of fun, and we love the way the finished pieces turned out. See more images of the final product here.

Rebrand: Lifelines Counseling Services


Lifelines Counseling Services is a non-profit agency located in Mobile, Alabama, that offers a wide range of programs to the Southwest Alabama community. Their services include professional counseling, crisis intervention, and education and prevention services. When they contacted us for design help, they had a single logo which represented all their programs.

We decided to update their existing logo with colors that are more cheerful and soothing. We altered the existing tree mark to remove the imaginary frowning face, and added a bright yellow circle behind the tree to reference “the light at the end of the tunnel,” and give an added boost of optimism. The three branches of Lifelines, represented by three distinct colors, are shown together in the parent mark, emphasizing the unity of Lifelines’ brand.

Next, we created Center Marks. Each counseling division is signified by a distinct color. Each center has its own two-color logo that clearly separates it from the other centers while showing an overall unity with the brand.

TABASCO Garden & Gun Magazine Ads

We were tasked with creating full-page ads as part of two TABASCO advertorials printed in consecutive issues of Garden & Gun magazine. We wanted these ads to reflect TABASCO’s role as a staple on all tables.

The first ad, “Setting the Standard for Fine Southern Tables,” was featured in the annual food issue. The ad was juxtaposed with an advertorial page featuring Chef Sue Zemanick of Gautreau’s restaurant. We created a more relaxed table in our next ad, “Setting the Standard for Casual Southern Tables.” This ad ran in the sporting issue across from an advertorial featuring Chef John Besh. We featured diagrams of the correct table settings in both ads to be interesting and informative.
