What happens when the zombie hordes and our favorite characters of The Walking Dead become gummy, 8-inch stop-motion animated puppets? If Robot Chicken is at the wheel, it's bound to be something interesting.
We took the creative direction developed by [adult swim] for the The Robot Chicken Walking Dead Special: Look Who’s Walking marketing campaign as a jumping off point. Then we visually expand upon it making use of the it's inside jokes and buckets of rubbery, stop-motion animated, fake-blood for the final design.
When the Coca-Cola Company wanted to shift the target audience of Diet Cherry Coke away from older and middle-aged consumers to twenty-somethings they called us. Being experts in the visual language of pop-culture and knowing how to present it in mass-marketing format, we created a distinct, edgy new visual look for the Diet Cherry Coke packaging. It was so successful that we were further contracted to develop in-store marketing materials, look-books, and a brand style guide.

For DreamWorks/Cartoon Network's "How to Train Your Dragon" we designed a media kit box for their PR materials, screener DVD, and a toy dragon. The box was based "The Book of Dragons," a key element used by the show's main character.

What does a superhero do when he makes a career change. Become a lawyer. of course. Sure he's still fighting for justice, but now it's in the courtroom not on the streets.
To capture the absurdity of the Adult Swim series, we designed the three box sets for the complete Harvey Birdman series to look like leather bound law books, but each having an irreverent twist: a doodled-in law book, a "dummies-guide" for law school, and a trashy law magazine.
The on-screen DVD navigation further incorporated the absurdity of the show featuring everything from quirky, messy desks to embarrassing office party photos.
Bakugan was a huge hit for Cartoon Network. We designed all of the packaging and onscreen navigation for all four season's DVD releases.
Sometimes small projects can be big winners. This project was designed for a wedding where the bride and groom brewed their own specialty beer at a local craft brewery. Even working within the limits of two-color printing and standard label materials to keep costs low, we created an international award-winning package design. Let us design your beverage packaging to help you get the recognition your products deserve.
Often when companies start owners produce all branding and artwork themselves, or use a patchwork of friends and freelancers to do it. But as their business grows, they find they need to more efficiently allocate time and resources. This is when they usually turn to reliable design and branding professionals. We are a perfect fit for this next step. We are a small agency with both specialty and big-brand experience. We can take products and services to the next level and support them when they get there. We produce innovative and exciting solutions that speak to the ways customers define themselves. The Caffeinds packaging illustrates how we helped a small, local coffee shop go from hand stamped and stickered bags to a professional, retail-savvy brand sold in their store and online.
To reward the fandom and celebrate the success of Cartoon Network's hit show "Adventure Time" (plus sell some DVDs), Cartoon Network created a limited-edition DVD that included a fleece hat like what the show's protagonist wears.

To celebrate Turner Classic Movies' 10th anniversary we were hired to design a commemorative package and book for three select titles from their "Essentials" series.
