Bill designs for the Hudson Valley Current, a non-profit with local currency to be used in the Hudson Valley. Currents are companion currency to the US dollar (with the same monetary value) that encourage local purchases by keeping money in the community.

We started with bills that would use a Hudson Valley Visionary, for example, Sojourner Truth, Thomas Cole, Eleanor Roosevelt or Pete Seeger. On the back of each bill, there’d be a description of the contribution the person made.

Our final designs featured Hudson Valley animals and their habitats – a Bee in the fields, a Blue Heron in the streams, a Blue Tailed Skink on the rocks and a Rainbow Trout in the river.

Logos for RUPCO’s newest project, Energy Square, a green energy building located in the heart of Kingston. A $22-million development, Energy Square replaces a vacant bowling alley with 57 affordable apartments, 11,000 square feet of civic and commercial space, and an elevated urban park. The building advances New York State’s clean energy goals by meeting a “net-zero for living” standard, which combines solar panels and energy efficient features to make it the first net-zero affordable housing development in the Hudson Valley.

Branding and interior artwork for Wilde Beest, a modern farm-to-table restaurant in Kingston, NY. We designed all of the restaurant’s branding and collateral – their logo, website, windows, menus, business cards, gift certificates, and more.

Inside the restaurant, the large-format artworks are “enhanced Audubons” – classic Audubon illustrations with mixed media painted on top. First, we chose animals that suited the space, then added white paint, black charcoal and oil pastels to make the prints more alive. We then enlarged and framed the art on the walls, with a nod to humor (squirrels over the bar), intensity (a bobcat hovering over a 5-top) and beauty (an alluring fox in the entry).

Thomas Cole National Historic Site

Design and collateral items for the Thomas Cole National Historic Site in Catskill, NY. Their new exhibition, The Parlors, features a new way to experience a historic house museum. We designed their 2017 materials, including invitations, brochures, advertising, and high-end donor materials. The invitation got more comments than any other printed piece they've done!
