The Line is a conceptual retailer based in NYC. It is defined by two components: an online ecommerce website that illuminates the stories of the objects sold through weekly editorials, and its offline home The Apartment is a physical store space in Soho that places all of the web product in the intimate context of what feels like someone’s loft. The Apartment is also an event space that is used to host film screenings, dinners, discussions, and workshops. The two components create a complete brand immersion for the customer and enables them to experience the brand in multiple dimensions.

The new identity of USPS reinforces the importance of its services while emphasizing its relevancy. With the use of geographic references, the omnipresence of USPS is made noticeable. The logo is rooted in the motif found on vintage airmail envelopes. In the identity's context, the slanted quadrilaterals are representative of individual units or parcels, which are the core of USPS. The directional forms suggest movement and distance, but their point of connection implies how a piece of mail is a uniting factor between people and locations.

Identity

A redesigned identity for a photography museum with applications ranging from web, print, environment and emerging media. The identity is based around settings on a camera; when you adjust the exposure, shutter speed, f-stop, or focus you are altering the outcome of the perceived image. Similarly, the physical environment in which you view photography has its own settings that can be changed; ultimately affecting the way an image is taken in by the viewer. Everything in the APS identity shows how if one setting is adjusted the entire end result is altered.

Packaging

A line of disposable amenities (dry shampoo, sunscreen, bug spray, salve and chapstick) for the recreational camper. Convenience is the main intent of the line. Products are premeasured for short camping trips so they can be thrown away at the end. The packages come on utility cord, so they can be hung on backpacks or tents; they also can be interlinked with each other. The line is all natural and eco friendly, as the packets are made from biodegradable materials.
