We spent the day learning all about the incredible story and philosophy behind @botniaskincare, visiting Botnia's flagship @skinremedysf as well as their micro-farm and lab in Sausalito. We're thrilled to be working together to reimagine their packaging design!
The new website we built for @hodofoods features combined storytelling through video, lifestyle photography, and hand-drawn illustrations, all which supported the ultimate goal of driving deeper engagement. We considered the user’s experience of the site in detail, optimizing functionality and flow for ease of use and desired results—in Hodo’s case, increased recipe and store locator views.

Our client @hodofoods has been disrupting the American market by making delicious, tofu and yuba that’s organic and non-GMO for more than a decade. We partnered with them to create a new website, starting with thoughtful strategy that included these user journey maps.

In a climate of booming construction, we set apart Build Group from its competitors by tapping into its founders’ gutsy but professional personality, telling their story in compelling ways. Our choice for the striking, electric blue enlivens Build Group’s brand identity in the digital space. Each landing page features an unconventional but captivating grid layout that showcases an impressive range of projects. Robust project filtering makes it easy for users to explore their interests, find relevant work, and connect to appropriate contacts. Take a further look through the link in our profile! (3/3)

Sneak peek of our tasty shoot with @ashateahouse. We're excited to share more work from this project soon. #chendesign
The Laurel Inn is a boutique hotel in the charming Pacific Heights neighborhood in SF with strong mid-century modern sensibilities. We had the opportunity to build a new brand identity system, which included exploring and creating custom typography for the logo. Read through our lead designer's thoughts behind the concept below and swipe left to see more photos!
"I wanted to create something quiet and refined, elegant and practical. Instead of scrapping the previous mark concept (a laurel), I thought it would be nice to simplify the icon to something more symbolic, less illustrative. In contrast to the organic mark, the letters are angular (referring to the exterior) and funky — the contrast of the letters flares in a way that alludes to common shapes in mid-century culture."—@yehoshuawhite #chendesign

Auction Napa Valley, hosted by @napavintners, is an annual weekend of events that includes vineyard parties, vintner-hosted dinners, and live auctions to benefit disadvantaged families in the region.
