Paper Truly

Paper Truly

The Challenge This was close to home. Since 2009, Melissa had been creating inventive wedding invitations under the moniker One Little M, but it was time to change. We weren’t so little, and there was more than one of us – plus, let’s face it, “onelittlem” is kind of a mouthful to say, and it’s not exactly easy to spell when you hear it. It was time for something new. The Solution We wanted a name and a logo that would communicate elegance with a touch of whimsy without locking us into the wedding market. Invitations will always be a core part of the business, but we wanted to keep the door open to more stationery and other paper creations.

Manda Marie Photography

Manda Marie Photography

The Challenge An established, independent photographer came to us looking to re-create her brand from the ground up. Name, logo, website, branding materials – everything was on the table. As a wedding photographer, she needed a name that was whimsical but professional, a logo that was modern with hints of classic elegance, and a website that put her amazing work front and center. The Solution It all starts with a name.  The client’s name, in fact. After trying many different combinations of words (in English and other languages), the simple, alliterative, and rhythmic won out. From there, we drew on influences from the Art Deco era of design and photography to create something clean, modern, and beautiful. Completely Re-imagined  New Name, New Look  Fundamentally Rebuilt  Photography First  Great Impressions   Beautiful Photos, Front & Center.    Opening A Storybook Letting clients put themselves into the story r Visuals That Inspire Featured galleries that prompt new vision in a familiar medium  First Impressions to Last Impressions An experience that keeps clients smiling from the first time they see the 3D business cards to delivery of their final prints. Elegant, Modern, Awesome.   In an industry cluttered with over-wrought whimsy, we wanted our client’s particular brand of honest creativity to shine through. The care that she puts into her craft had to be evident from the first time a potential client saw a business card or clicked an ad. Check out the finished product.

The Sweet Divine

The Sweet Divine

The Challenge A small cake and confectionery came to us looking for a complete identity for their new business. Their dream was to own a mobile “Sweet Shop” for events and pop-up sales that would supplement a traditional storefront cakery. It had to be fun, it had to be bright, and it had to stand out in a cupcake-crazed market. The Solution We talked with the client extensively about their vision for their business. They weren’t looking to just cash in on a fad, they wanted something they could build a following around. With creative cake-making at the core, they wanted an identity that would set them up for years of growth. They got a big boost when they were featured on an episode of TLC’s Cupcake Wars – and won!
