The Barn Raiser
A traditional “Barn Raising” is a collective action in which the movement for local farmland is built by members of the community. The Barn Raiser is a celebration and fund raiser for PCC Farmland Trust. 2017 was the inaugural year for this festive event which took place at the Westland Distillery and helped raise money to support Northwest farmland.
The Crop is the monthly e-newsletter published by PCC Farmland Trust that helps their mailing list keep up to date with all the happenings going on with the organization. I’ve helped out with rebranding this publication as well as on the email newsletter design and set up.
Modernist Cat designs with you and your pet in mind. They offer a line of modern litter box covers and dual-purpose furniture that caters to your sense of style AND your need to spoil your pet! An Etsy featured shop, they have received press from all over, including The Eichler Network, Hauspanther and Wired Magazine to name a few.

Community Farmers Market of Chehalis
Farmers markets are great places to shop because they support small communities of growers and introduce consumers with a wide variety of locally grown products. So it was important for the Community Farmers Market logo to include a diverse group of products grown in and around Chehalis. We printed, scanned and vectorized the logotype from a lockup of metal type. The typeface here is super bold with imperfect edges, lending a sort of hand made quality to the design. This was combined with vectorized artwork based on a sketch of farmers market goods that are often available for purchase Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Chehalis.
PCC Farmland Trust Programs
There are many ways for PCC Farmland Trust’s audience to participate and engage with local farms and farmers. Local Chefs for Local Farms brings together chef, farmer and consumer to enjoy a spectacular multi-course dinner prepared by a Seattle-area premier chef. On the Farm educational series gives community members a unique opportunity to head out to a working farm for an insider’s look at sustainable farming practices and farmland preservation across Washington State. All In For Farms is part of a world-wide push for environmental change. In collaboration with musician Jack Johnson’s charity, All at Once.
This company’s proprietary technology converts steam and waste heat into electricity – a challenging concept to capture in a small graphic symbol. We used a classic design to keep the idea simple. The logo’s cleanliness also makes it easy to size down for application on machinery, ensuring that Practical Steam’s branding is recognizable in more places. We also created a website for Practical Steam ›
This family run farm nestled in between Olympia and Portland is a place near and dear to us. We wanted to develop a symbol that includes members of the farm family. We were also specifically asked to include the landmark oak tree overlooks the property – a great idea and one we happily met.
Federal Army & Navy Surplus
We like this spec logo for its traditional representation of a classic retail industry. The logo features (what else?) patriotic stars and stripes in an insignia-shaped lockup.
