Stonington Capital is a collaboration between a building developer and a finance company to create a financing company focused on helping people buy and renovate houses. For this company I drew inspiration from some old school Boston-area financial companies. I wanted to give their customers a familiar look and feel from the great history of Boston.

ReDoos (pronounced like “reduce”) is an early-stage ride-sharing startup. They wanted a logo that reflected reduced traffic and eco-friendliness. I also designed their prototype app UI and UX (but I can’t show that to you just yet).

Torrington Properties buys and develops commercial and residential spaces. Their work is of high quality and I wanted to reflect that in the logo. The logo graphic represents both the crossing of steel beams and creates the siloutte of a building at the intersection. The owner of the company was so pleased with the logo he has put it on everything from company swag to uniforms to beer glasses… and it makes me happy whenever my work gets put to good use.

Ribon Therapeutics is a newly-formed cancer research startup. I helped Ribon take an almost-finished logo and add the final touches that make it a stronger logo. The changes were subtle, but made a big difference. I extended the line over the “ri” to give the logo more balance and call out that the name is pronounced “rye-bon” and not ribbon. The second tweak to the logo was to swap around the shapes in the graphic burst to match up to the molecule Ribon is studying. And finally I adjusted the colors to be a bit warmer and aligned with Pantone standard colors.

I made the logo for this company back in 2014. The company is not active anymore, but you can find someone noodling with their synth rig featuring one of the Slow Nova modules (upper rack, just to the left of center). The owner of the company had this vision of a slowly exploding supernova, hence “Slow Nova”. I wanted to invoke the forward-looking NASA mission logos of the 1970s with a tinge of psychedelia.

Owl’s Head is a marketing consultation company started by a former Timberland shoe executive. He named the company after his favorite mountain to hike in New Hampshire. The owl is also a symbol of foresight and wise insight. The owner of the company is a quirky and fun person so I wanted to have his logo both reflect the earth tones of the outdoors, but also reflect his fun and positive attitude.
