Moving an old barn from New York to North Carolina and turning it into a beautiful wedding venue is quite an undertaking. We’re very pleased to be involved with the branding of this unique venture. Because of the interesting story behind the venue, we wanted to incorporate barn imagery into the logo, while still conveying an elegant tone. The resulting brand makes use of gold and Carolina blue, which combine beautifully on printed stationery.
The woman behind Your Beeting Heart is an urban homesteader and therapeutic chef whose passion for food is obvious and contagious. When she began her Bay Area business, Stacey approached Curious & Co. to create a brand that would, among other things, feel homemade. The final result includes a hand-drawn beet and a rich, vegetable-inspired color palette.
After branding the new business, we worked with Stacey to create a website with a focus on her classes and food events as well as her educational (and entertaining) blog posts.
The women behind Just Bloomed create supportive exercise apparel for nursing moms. It was important that the identity for their new company appeal to active moms without being overly feminine. It was also important to keep in mind how the logo would appear on the garments themselves. Inspired by the company name and the active women who wear the apparel, we landed on a hummingbird in flight with a cheerful, modern color palette.
After a few years of perfecting French-style gluten-free pastry recipes, Brûlée Bakery was ready to refresh its retail presence. We created a patisserie-inspired logo, and designed new product labels in that same style. Now the packaging is just as delicious as the treats inside.
Pinterest Fail is where good intentions come to die — in other words, a safe place for Pinterest lovers to share the projects that didn’t turn out quite how they hoped. Inspired by Día de los Muertos, the site incorporates bright colors and fosters a good-natured celebration of ‘dead projects.’ We created the papel picado logo and banner header to set the fun tone. Since the site depends so heavily on contributions from its strong community, revamping the submission process was a priority.
