Order

Identity, print, website, merch, social 

GrandArmy worked with Negotiatus to rebrand as Order — a tool that works in-stride with businesses to streamline the experience of juggling vendors, workflows, software, and purchasing processes. Overhauling the brand, we helped position Order as the trusted partner of finance, operations, and procurement teams everywhere.

Adidas Valentine’s Day

Campaign, digital, print, art direction


GrandArmy worked closely with adidas to develop the identity for their 2022 Valentine’s Day collection. Practice Love celebrates the many ways people show love for their partners, friends, and teammates. Focusing on capturing moments of affection, we translated this concept into a flexible design system that feels warm and nostalgic, like a hug from a loved one. From beginning to end, we guided and executed the initial ideation, language development, photoshoot, and visual system, all of which culminated in the delivery of print materials and digital elements to be implemented globally.

Ephemeral Tattoo

Identity, print, website, social, facade

Ephemeral Tattoo creates tattoo ink that disappears within a year and has their own tattoo studio in Williamsburg. The logo is actually four interchangable logos, representing Ephemeral’s everchanging nature. Made mainly for people who find tattoo shops intimidating or don’t want permanent marks, we chose a softer color palette inspired by nature to create a calm atmosphere.

NPR Podcasts

Identity, digital, social, art direction

The identity and campaign are centered around “More Voices, All Ears” referring to both the podcast creators, hosts and producers voices as well as listener’s voices. Calling on the community, we commissioned illustrators and designers to bring podcast content to life in their own voice. The combination of styles, bright colors, bold type and structured, simple design draws attention to the artwork and achieves a fresh and inclusive take on community.
