Logo Inspirations and Benjamin Howes of Howes Design Service are currently holding the #outdoorbadgechallenge over on Instagram. The rules are simple - create an original outdoor badge logo and show the design process. Process pics, sketches and videos can be found on my Instagram account.
Recently announced in an article by GoLocalProv, BAR AND BOARD is a new, locally sourced restaurant concept by Carolyn Rafaelian, CEO of ALEX AND ANI. I've worked closely with Carolyn on this project over the past couple of years. It's had many faces and many names, but here we are. The first of the four locations is expected to open early 2018 in Providence, RI.
The Great International Beer Festival [was] America's largest international beer festival featuring two great shows of unlimited sampling from over 250 brews, food, and live entertainment hosted at the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence.

This has been such a fun project to work on. The founder is so passionate about what she does which comes through in her product. My dog and I could sit and split a bag together, no problem. Developing the brand through the logo and package design was led by the playfulness of the brand name and it's simple message of four healthy ingredients. Looking forward to seeing this brand grow and working on more projects.
Towards the end of January 2018, Dan Bilzerian took to Instagram offering $10k to the designer who could come up with a better logo than the one he presented. The only requirement was that it had to have the same goat skull in it. Needless to say, there were countless submissions but I threw my hat in the ring. While he made a...questionable decision in the end, at least the guy is a patron of the arts.
Some other recent works. A little of this, a little of that.
Every summer for the past several years Carolyn's Sakonnet Vineyard hosts an outdoor summer concert series. Each week since the series began I've made each artist a unique gig poster to promote that week's show. This is just a handful of the dozens and dozens in the archives.
