Feed Me Logos ~ Round 1

by Julia Balfour

I have a few rules for logos. They have to be memorable, unique, simple, and scalable. Below is the beginning of a logo system for one of our favorite clients, Feed Me.

We always design a logo system, not a single logo lock-up. That system typically breaks down to: a mark or monogram, a horizontal logo lock-up, and a square logo lock-up. For this suite, we’re going to include a badge lock-up as well. Above are a few options that we presented to our client today. This is the start to a great new logo system… Take a look. What’s your favorite?

Our Latest Creation: Backus Hospital’s Responsive Website

We’re so excited to announce, with our friends at Backus Hospital, their new responsive website. The site was a collaboration with the Backus Marketing team, combining the latest on health and hospital news. All of our sites are a joy to work on and this was no exception. When we proposed a responsive website last year, it hadn’t yet been determined “the latest thing”. Lucky for us, our great clients at Backus trusted us, and our web predictions were right on the money. Responsive website design is now a must-have. Take a look:
