A Milwaukee based horn band with a cross between New Orleans brass, ska, and Latino! They will bring a zip and a "party" feel to the local shows and dive bars that the band generally plays. We want peoples legs to start fidgeting, their heads to start bobbing and feet tapping to the beat until they can't help but get up and shake what their mama gave 'em! The music is like putting a little extra cayenne pepper on whatever you’re eating!
They are the gumbo of ska bands, they have all of the things you'd expect from a ska band but with a personality like a pop-punk band (that’s the cayenne). They bring the party rather than being brought to the party, you can either dance to them or tap your foot at the bar, either way, once they leave everybody will still be groovin’.
Zippy, fast-talking, energetic, comical, life of the party, radiant, colorful
A marketing company that proves themselves to be a diamond in the rough of social media marketing. There are a lot of people out there who claim to know how to market on Facebook and Instagram but they are all just red lobsters. You know, the same old things you always see. Only Blue is the blue lobster, the rarity that gives you actual results and doesn't try to lose you in jargon to the point you are not sure if you're getting the bang for your buck you want.
There are so many people out there who talk about knowing everything about marketing and blowing out your eardrums with everything that they can do while claiming to be a master of everything. Only Blue focuses on social media marketing and baking up their knowledge with data, they don’t work for the paycheck. They focus on telling people the right way rather than the fast way, they focus on the road less traveled.

A Green Bay-based auto club with a taste for European cars. This group spends every ounce of their expendable cash on making their cars go faster, sounds louder, and look sharper than a brand new razor. They were formed in order to bring a group of car-loving fanatics under one unifying mark. Something they could carry with them wherever they go and spread the word about what they do and love.
They are a group that wants to show their colors like a biker gang does, everything they can slap their tag on to get it in front of more people, they are going to do it. It’s about pride for European cars in America, and what’s more American than biker gangs (oof!)? The pride, simplicity, and power are their guiding principles.

A collection of logo marks created for various startups, side projects, grand ideas, or future dreams.
The USCCA Brand identity was convoluted and attempted to capitalize on too many different areas and spreading themselves too thin. This resulted in a fractured identity and little to no continuity between collateral and brand pieces.
The logo, website, and photos were the primary drivers of this identity work. The project included a full website UI and UX redesign, a photoshoot, and a reworking of the primary logo and logo system while considering future brand architecture.
The goal was to focus on clarity and simplicity for scalability, so the direction of white backgrounds, large white spaces and open areas was chosen in order to focus on those guiding principles.
