Cynic Gym

Cynic Gym is an eclectic modern rock band that started in the early 1990s as Chocolate Houses. During a late-night rehearsal, a college music professor named Jim, barged in and demanded that the volume be cut by 50% or for the band to “forget about it!” The band forgot about it, but did not forget about the incident and changed their name to Cynic Gym in honor of the infamous professor.

Mantra Artisan Ales

In early 2015, brewers Derrick Morse and Chad Frost set their sights on historic Franklin, Tennessee as the home of Mantra Artisan Ales. Derrick, out of Boulder, Colorado had been brewmaster of a local brewpub for the past few years, creating a complex array of intricate beers earning him the nickname of “mad scientist.”

Chad returned to Franklin from a professional brewing program in Berlin, Germany. With the news that a local brewery would be vacating their facility to expand, Morse and Frost jumped the opportunity. Joining forces with chef Maneet Chauhan, the Mantra team set out to create premium, worldly-inspired artisan beers.

For us, drinking beer should be a curated experience that provokes a conversation.

I AM ART IMPACTS ARTISTS & CHILDREN

“If the pain of your story is not transformed, it will be transmitted.”

-Richard Rohr

conflict resolution

We cannot remove pain and conflict from our story, but we can change how we respond to it. I AM ART connects our personal story to God’s greater story of redemption, so we can rest in the peace of our true identity: Art of the Great I AM.

One of the most important parts of a story is the element of surprise – the twist in the plot that illuminates deeper meaning. Cognitive psychology recognizes the importance of the “discrepant event”: something with an unexpected outcome that is remembered because it engages our brain, encouraging problem solving and critical thinking.

I AM ART uses the surprise of conflict in a creative process to help us process the conflict in our personal story through external symbolism. This process allows us to safely explore conflict and challenges us to think about our healthy responses that will help heal trauma.

The Quetzal is the national bird of Guatemala and symbolic of liberty. Legend says the Quetzal dies in captivity. It is the perfect metaphor for freeing children from the bondage of abuse.

Athentikos

Scott & Amelia Moore founded the nonprofit, Athentikos in 2008 to authentically give back to Guatemala, the birth country of their two adopted sons. After wrestling with infertility for over a decade, Scott and Amelia adopted two sons, Micah and Elliot. During their adoption process, they learned about Guatemala’s tragic history and met children who were still hurting. They couldn’t just adopt their sons and move on with their lives. They had to respond. So, they decided to use their creative talents to tell a story. That’s how it all began …

Logo Symbolism

Visually, the logo represents the Volcano Agua seen through the arch in Antigua, Guatemala. Thematically, the logo represents sanctification – the continual process of being drawn closer to God (and our authentic identity) over the course of life.

CREATIVE INSPIRATION

Humulus Project Rethink and Survey

Humulus Project

The brewers at Life Is Brewing developed a new line of India Pale Ales that did not fit into the existing brand catalog, so I developed an entirely new branding imprint called the Humulus Project. Everything about this brand is bold and demands attention. The design jumps off the shelf, the copywriting is introspective. This brand is designed to be enjoyed without distraction at the end of the day as you reflect on things that matter most.

Boldly Unwind

Branding

Rethink Humulus Logo

The Humulus logo is derived from the Humulone molecular structure, an organic acid, is a bitter-tasting chemical compound found in the resin of mature hops (Humulus lupulus). Humulone is a prevalent member of the class of compounds known as alpha acids, which collectively give hopped beer its characteristic bitter flavor.

Branding Design for Craft Beverage

At Silver Hand Meadery, it’s our passion to rediscover and reimagine, not just mead, but everything. Though mead is an old drink, we are not attempting to recreate what it once was. Our rediscovery of mead seeks to reimagine and reinvent mead, to bring it into current times, and make it relevant for today.  We carry this principle of rediscovering and reimagining into the meadery in other ways. From the brick and corrugated metal on the walls, to the use of old barn wood and old doors to create our bar tops and tables, we want to use old things of beauty and give them a new purpose. 

Our Mission: create exceptional meads and unique experiences so that our guests can savor what is good together.
