Adrian Chalk loves wine. He loves the people who grow it, the places from which it’s sourced, the process that produces it, and the meals during which it is rightly enjoyed.

We worked with Adrian to develop his logo for the wines he imports as well as his sales materials, website, and online presence.

Bari Gisin    ︎        ︎       ︎       ︎

Bari Gisin grew up seeing the world through the lens of her father’s camera. Years later, now with her son in tow, she witnessed the world through her own camera lens and watched the wonderment in her son’s eyes as they captured the face in the moon, the magic of a balloon in flight, the majesty of wild horses at play.

Bari’s photographs capture the beauty of the world we live in, the emotions we share with the animal kingdom, and the perfection of nature — either recalling our own experiences of them or exemplifying them for those who are too busy to see them in real life.

We helped Bari build a business from a passion.

It took a year for father and son Jay and Mark Eisenhofer to write “Black Shadow,” their debut science fiction novel. They wanted to invest a year promoting the book as well.

The year was 2020 — a science fiction story all its own. Schools and bookstores were closed, but kids had plenty of time to read. We reached them via Free Little Libraries up and down the Eastern Seaboard. We called attention to the books with bookmarks in the libraries on social media. A modern-day golden ticket.

We honored the idea that inspired the novel: Mark’s comment that the best characters are “a little bit good and a little bit bad.” We shared this as a novel that inspires superheroes and supervillains.

We established, populated, and left an evergreen presence for Black Shadow on Amazon, iTunes, Goodreads, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and
