Global packaging for FRISKIES
Worked directly with Cultural Strategy Group to create new direction for this product. Checker liked the design comps, so they hired us to complete final packaging.

The NERVE Brand, like much of our work that has taken place over a couple decades, Nerve transcends the traditional designer/client relationship. We have done everything possible under the sun for the founders of this company, from product design to filmmaking. We have also raced in 24hr bikes races as a team, and slept under the stars. This is a Colorado brand through and through. Assorted collateral, web site AD, promotional materials, product design, films, trade show design and strategic planning and positioning consultant
Another day, another label. We have always liked the way this one came together. Bright and bold.
Packaging design and production
This is another long term client . We have been written menus, designed signs and been involved in their well-earned success for many years. Their mission to give back to community was ahead of the curve in terms of marketing trends. They live it.
Growing up in Wisconsin, I often went to various pubs with my Dad. The founders of Bensons had roots in the Upper Midwest, so the friendly design, accessible old neon sign and pub menus were inspired by fish fries and corner bars.

THE HUNT and SURPRISE ENDING
This is our design studio, located in Colorado's largest historic district. We recently sold the space. The project had a hidden bar behind a wall, rooftop deck and glass conference room.
Handmade steel and iron adornments throughout. This project allowed us to have fun with every touchpoint. The design story, all true, revolves around founder and head mechanic Anton Van Lueken, a Dutch bike racer with a long history as a local wrencher, and the son of xyxling imigrants in upstate New York. The shop needed to quickly establish itself as a classic shop that had existed for many years.
...aaah, the holidays.
