    We’re thrilled to share our branding work for Indianapolis’ newest Cultural District, Market East!

    Earlier this year, we worked with Indianapolis Downtown, Inc., the Indianapolis City Market, local developers and the Mayor’s office on naming and defining what made this new district different from existing ones and how it could attract not only out-of-towners, but folks from out of state. 

    We kicked the process off by facilitating a large group brainstorming session to gather ideas on the District’s look & feel, personality traits and positioning.

    These findings coupled with additional stakeholder interviews determined the following overarching ideas to guide us through the design phase: 

    1. Market East needs to speak to a ‘design-minded’ audience ( people who appreciate or are involved in architecture, public space planning, graphic design, fashion and art )

    2. Market East’s identity needs to reflect movement ( and transit ) associated with a bustling downtown core

    The final identity system positions Market East as a vibrant, design-centric community in downtown Indianapolis. We invite you to follow along this year as we continue helping the city promote it!

    An unsung hero behind any successful design project is a client who works with you, values what you do and allows you to make great work.

    We’ve got a responsive website and some other cool projects in the works for one of our favorite Indiana microbreweries, Daredevil Brewing Co.

    Stay tuned!

    Our package design work for Sitka Salmon Shares was just featured in Entrepreneur Magazine's Annual Branding Issue as their packaging of the Month! 

    You can grab the issue wherever, um, Entrepreneur Magazine is sold. Or, perhaps you could borrow it from one of their 620,000 subscribers.

    Cody and I are headed down to Evansville later this month to present to the Evansville Design Group. We’ll be sharing our story ( from graduating, to starting CODO, to focusing on the food and beverage industry ) and it’ll be chock full of design horror stories, cursing and interpretive dancing.

    Kind of disappointed it took 5 years of running CODO for us to order custom brass knuckle door handles for a client. 

    These bad boys’ll be installed on the Natural Born Juicers’ Mass Ave. location later today!

    Went to a great panel discussion last night on how to open a craft brewery in Indiana. It was hosted by Indy Beer News and featured Ray from Indiana City Brewing, and the fellas from Mashcraft.
