GTI Millwork Inc.

GTI Millwork was rebranded from the original Group Three Inc. We evaluated their company, employees, work, clients & vendors. In-depth branding discoveries were realized & from this collection of information, the GTI brand identity was created. The logo shape represents the unique quality of their traditional work & the blocky typography suggests the boxy nature of most millwork. The approach was pragmatic & traditional but with flair & uniqueness.

Rob McIver Photo

The ROB brand identity began with the iconic literal logo, which features the highlight color of any photograph shown within the center lens. When viewed on the site, the photography on display will highlight within this area of the logo. The main goal of this website was to be unique, but to also allow the photographs to speak for themselves, limit the unnecessary graphics & use neutral tones to allow the photos to pop.

Woodin + Associates

The rebranding of this Civil & Geotechnical Engineering, Land Planning & Surveying form involved a subtle transition from the old dated logo & identity into a newer, modern representation of the firm. The logo shape was inspired by a tool used in the surveying field & the branded orange swoosh was used as a consistent brandmark across all materials, representing the construction industry, while drawing your eye through & around the page.

Baiada Photography

Baiada was rebranded to communicate to clients having higher end weddings & events, who care about having beautiful documentation photography. The modern icon juxtaposed with the traditional logotype & filigree provides a contemporary identity with all the classicism of a wedding. The website is a custom Flash site, utilizing SlideShowPro Director, allowing them to easily make updates. The front-end is an ActionScript 3.0 built interface, which interacts with Director. The mobile version uses HTML5 slideshows from Director. The Baiada Photography website was the winner of SlideShowPro's website of the month in March 2010.

IMS

IMS approached us to brand their business, with the objective of presenting the business primarily as a landscape lighting contractor, while secondarily maintaining the company as a landscape irrigation contractor, which was their primary revenue source.

Lightwork Photography

Lightwork Photography's objective was to target female clientele, specifically brides & moms. Because Lightwork's owner is also a woman, it made sense to develop a feminine logo & identity. An iconic shape was used to hold the vintage style typography in a cohesive enclosure, while providing an icon & texture to be used throughout all pieces.

About Me

I am a Graphic & Website Designer & Front-End Developer working in Delaware & the Greater Philadelphia Area.

Experience

I have extensive knowledge from a diverse array of experiences: studying at D.C.A.D & The Pratt Institute; interning & working in NYC for various agencies; working as an in-house Art & Marketing Director for a publisher & an R&D firm; working as a dimensional package designer, production artist & paper engineer for Structural Graphics; & several other short term contract projects for various agencies.

Currently, I work as a freelancer & specialize in brand identity design, logo design, website design & development & print graphic design.

Process

All work begins in a blank sketchbook with pen, as all pieces are created from scratch. Initially, we conduct research & gather content into a document, followed by brainstorming & conceptualizing. This consists of iterating a series of drawings & mock-ups until they have been critiqued, revised & ultimately approved to go into production.

Philosophy

Each design problem is approached from a business perspective, discovering & analyzing the purposes, functions, goals, objectives, target audience & media of each piece. When the design problem is defined & understood, a solution will present itself through the process.
