Brennan Real Estate
Brennan asked us to develop a new identity and visual messaging strategy to be used across media for their high-end real estate firm. With four emerging areas of business ( Brennan Marking & Sales, Brennan Development, Brennan RISE, and Brennan Property Management), the identity needed to serve as a unifying image, yet allow for the creation of a coherent set of visual communications targeting their four very different audiences.
Our work for Brennan has won awards from the 45th Creativity International Print & Packaging Design Competition, and the 45th Creativity International Media & Interactive Design Awards.

The Pratt Graduate Communications Design department wanted to express its core qualities to prospective students, and Level Design Partner Jennifer Bernstein / Visiting Associate Professor GradComdD was asked to lead that effort. Dialogue is central to a GradComD student’s education and thus it is the central concept around which this publication was constructed. The book reflects how — as designers — we are constantly engaged in multiple dialogues with ourselves, our community, and our work.
In Dialogue has won awards from Graphis, Core77, Good Design®, 50 Books | 50 Covers, University & College Designers Association, and the Print Regional Design Annual.

The Indi Surfs website won The Indi Surfs Website has awards from the 45th Creativity International Media & Interactive Design Awards, and 2015 American Graphic Design Awards
How Democracy Works Now
Shari Robertson & Michael Camerini are a directing / producing team who have created numerous award-winning documentaries. The filmmakers asked us to develop the overall visual branding, main title sequence and on-screen graphics for their twelve-part film series about the Democratic process. We created a title sequence that suggests the character-driven nature of the films, and the intricate layers and nuances that make up Democracy in action today. There are twelve unique variations of the Opening Titles, tailored to each of the “stories” that make up the series.
"How Democracy Works Now" was shown at the New York Film Festival, The Walter Reade Theater at Lincoln Center, and on HBO.
