Logo/Identity Design: Umba Box

Think of that one friend you have with amazing taste. Now imagine her sending you a present every month. How could that be anything but awesome? Umba Box is a really cool new subscription service (think wine-of-the-month club) that combines the best of independent, handmade products with the fun and surprise of a monthly gift box delivered to your door, for just $26 a month. I'm super excited to be working with them to create and illustrate their visual identity, starting with their new logo: Featured in this month's box: these very cute leather and canvas clutches from Velle Purse. I've been working in advertising for close to a decade as an art director, writer and creative director, so it goes without saying that I love helping to build brands -- including yours! If you'd like to talk about what I might be able to do for your company, drop me a line at and say hi!
