In fall 2014, Woolrich launched their own line of footwear. To celebrate the heritage of the brand, we dug into the archives for inspiration. The result is what you see here. A mashup of their iconic buffalo check plaid, 1973 sheep logo, raw craft paper, wood, felt, and metal.

Ben Edtl, the world’s most passionate handballer, approached us when Edtl Handball was just an idea kicking around in the back of his mind. We had the opportunity to get in on the ground floor to create a complete brand identity for him, as well as help out with product development, attracting investors, and all aspects of launching and marketing this awesome new brand to the global handball market.

Merrell lept into the barefoot running shoe movement with both feet and came to us for something that would stand out in the outdoor market. Our concept was to take the product benefit of being "connected to the ground," and look at the product and activities from the Earth's perspective. The result was this highly successful campaign.

Sauvie Island Coffee came to us looking for a way to get noticed in a town known for its coffee roasters and connoisseurs. We thought, what better way to soar above the crowd than to celebrate the island's status as a bird sanctuary.
So with that in mind, we created new bird-friendly branding that features a different Sauvie Island bird for each roast, an eye catching color palette, copy, and imagery that ties it all together.

Twice every year we get the fun job of developing launch materials for Woolrich Footwear's amazing new line of boots and shoes. The shoes feature luxurious leathers and wool from the historic Woolrich Woolen Mill in Pensylvania, and we use these as inspiration in creating wholesale catalogs, look books, product photography, video, and social media content to support both the trade launch and consumer launch of each line.

Legendary tool company Milwaukee Electric Tool came to us for help with a creative concept to help explain the benefits of Heated Gear, their new line of battery-powered apparel.

Once upon a time, we shared an office space with the good folks of Trout Mountain Forestry. So we were stoked when they tapped us for help in freshening up their brand and launching a new website. We even got to tag along on several trips to the forests they manage to capture them in action. It's good to know there are people like these guys looking out for the trees.

We worked with the cool people behind MadeHere PDX to create a logo and branding for their new store.

The gals at Handful can be a rowdy bunch, and we love channeling those feisty and fun-loving personalities in their advertising. A highlight is creating an attention-grabbing ad for the annual trade show where they introduce their new products to prospective retailers. Nothing like making a good first impression.

When Merrell launched their suite of footwear and apparel product technologies, they challenged us to find a way to dramatize the consumer benefits of these technologies. We developed this concept of animated and still illustrations which show what's going on behind the scenes in all of those cool shoes and clothes.

When Legit Organics was launching their brand new line of organic candy bars, they asked us to create a retail display to introduce their brand and put their delicious chocolates within easy reach of natural food store shoppers. We created these displays, designed for easy set-up and maximum branding at the point of sale. Do yourself a favor and try one of their Shotcaller bars. Mmmmm.

ENELL sport bras have long been a favorite of well-endowed women in the know. They are specially designed for C-cup and above and are renowned for doing the heavy lifting where others fall short. When they launched their new everyday bra, ENELL asked us to find a way to quickly tell the story of how these hard-working bras will provide unparalleled support and still feel comfortable all day.
