We put together this fun and festive campaign for Distillery Row’s Summer Beach Bash in Portland, Oregon. The annual party is a chance for all of the distilleries in the Row to come together and share their craft spirits, make tasty and refreshing cocktails, enjoy some live music, and say “thank you” to the local community. The advertising and marketing campaign included posters, postcards, local newspaper ads, and social media graphics all centered around the fun and retro type treatment we created for the event, that even includes a tropical drink umbrella!...

The team at New Deal Distillery wanted a Summer drink flight menu that was a fun departure from their usual (delicious) offerings so they came up with a Tropical Tiki series of cocktails they called the Island Getaway Flight. Drawing on our love of all things retro, we created this small ad in a vintage style for Travel Portland magazine, and this drink menu with the same look and feel for in-house printing and use. Aloha!...

Oh, yeah ...

The panels are big and bright so they can be easily read from cars on the street. Whether you read the secondary copy or not, the big idea is already intertwined with the company name and logo, and hopefully stuck in your head. Click the image for a larger view. ...

Here's something a little different from us: a series of web banner ads for the 2011 Seattle Erotic Ball. The campaign we designed included posters, postcards, and print and web advertising, and was full of loud colors, grungy textures and gothic type. As you can see, we're fully adept at many different design styles and aesthetics. ...

Here's a fun poster we just did for the Pearl District’s Claus and Paws holiday benefit event for Dove Lewis. If you have a dog or cat, or even something more exotic please bring your little friend down to Lexidog Pearl on Sunday, December 5th from 11AM to 3PM and have their picture taken with Santa Claus. Yes, that's where the name came from. Did you think that it was the exciting story of a cranky cat who drinks too much and a seemingly dim-witted, but actually quite intelligent dog who work as extra Christmas help in the Pearl District,...
