#SMSSummit First Responders – Logo design

LMI+D creative studio designed a badge-style logo for the Social Media Strategies Summit First Responders conference. LMI+D has been branding the @smssummit events for over a decade by first starting with the social media icon globe.  The challenge for this new brand for the #SMSSummit was to incorporate the social media icon globe into what would take the form of a universal badge.

Here is the badge logo with the event title.

LOGO DESIGN
Social Media Strategies Summit Public Agencies & Government

Branding and identity development for the Social Media Strategies Summit. This logo was developed for the Public Agencies & Government portfolio of the #SMSSummit series.

I developed a circular badge style logo to share that same familiar presence as the presidential seal.

Late Summer 2020 – A Typographical Presentation

The latest works from the LMI+D creative studio are presented here through animation and static imagery.

LMI+D Branded Stories

A new logo for BrandStrat Conference using bold colors choices in black and cyan along with a more modern font updated the previous look from a few years past. The client, GSMI, was pleased with the result and the look of the logo reversed while it occupies the website.

The “Direct Connect” logo was created for a member benefit for members of the NCIA – The National Cannabis Industry Association.  You can see the logo in place here:  DIRECT CONNECT.

Finally, Marchesi, which was launched earlier this year, was a design based upon modern luxury using gold foil throughout the application of the logo on labeling.

Marchesi 2017 Chardonnay – BRANDING & IDENTITY

Graphic Design & Innovation, Wine Identity & Design
Marchesi 2017 Chardonnay – il mazzo di fiori

The Marchesi family isn’t new to making wine, but is new in the California, Sta. Rita Valley region and the American market. The creative process began earlier this year through conversations on skype  and a few brief east-coast meetings (non-direct fights to Italy).  My studio proposed to create a modern floral design to embody the meaning of  “il mazzo di fiori”.  Translated from Italian, it means “the bouquet of flowers.”

Soft, feminine colors of pinks and peaches colored the line drawings of the illustration.  Gold foil was used prominently against the deep brown label to capture attention, romance, and the feminine quality of this offering.

Rosario (Marchesi) was instantly captivated by the simplicity this communicated to the potential customer.

Bellissima!

 

Maison Le Voleur (House of Thieves) – PINOT NOIR BRANDING & IDENTITY

Maison Le Voleur Pinot Noir 2015  – “House of Thieves”

I live to design for the passionate wine creator. That is exactly who Christophe Ranacourt is. I met him several months ago on a business trip in which we had the most delightful discussion about wine – mine for design and his for the creation of the finest blends. He wanted his labels redesigned and I was inspired to take on this task.

Christophe isn’t new to thievery, that is, the commoner stealing his ideas & techniques.   I asked about the new name and we joked about naming it the “House of Thieves.” I asked what the French would be (as Christophe is from Normandy) and he said “Maison Le Voleur.”  We agreed that those who steal ideas from artists (of all disciplines) is the most offensive.

And here is Maison Le Voleur wine label design and branding. 

A traditional approach developed this concept through using classic typography and dark, burnished gold foil stamping on cream colored textured paper. Through this design, he brings his cherished childhood chateau right into the presentation of his offerings.

The bottom images show the technical notes, or the tasting notes that were designed for his distributors and for his upcoming website.

Pinot Noir Wine Label Design + Identity // Mignanelli

Wine Identity & Design
Mignanelli Pinot Noir Nelson Family Vineyard • Santa Cruz Mountains 2015
Here’s the creative direction and graphic design for the pinot noir wine labels which follow the same design principles for the chardonnay that was previously created.
All wines have a corresponding wine technical sheet that describes the promise of the wine along with retail price and specifications. The section of  “points” is placed high and in a prominent section of the design to bring attention to the excellent reviews from the reputable sources of Wine & Spirits Magazine and Burghound online.
