Selected Work—Updated 05.2021
Brand Identity

space150 was approached by an exciting  transportation opportunity in collaboration with the city of Los Angeles and the L.A. Dodgers baseball club. The task was to brand a gondola service that would take passengers and baseball fans from downtown Los Angeles to Dodger Stadium in a 5 minute, scenic ride. The logo abstracts the gondola cables with bold lines ascending into the sky. The resulting negative space creates a secondary symbol of a bird in flight.

Veteran Village Farm
Branding, Identity

Speculative branding for a veteran-owned and operated farming project based in Minnesota. The design was scrapped due to timing and logistic issues but remained top-of-mind as a fun exploration of heritage-infused identity system for a non-profit.

Brand Identity

Inspire is a sleep apnea treatment that works inside the body to treat the root cause of sleep apnea. The challenge was to break this revolutionary medical technology brand out of the typical clinical and cold visual communication to something much more hopeful, friendly and warm. Together, we established a logo, stationary, signage, illustration-style, animations and a website to help patients understand that relief was finally achievable.
