Women and Health Initiative

When Design Makes a Difference

The Women & Health Initiative at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health has an unique agenda focused on women’s health needs and women’s critical roles as both formal and informal participants in healthcare systems across the world.

W&HI came to us recently with a project: create attractive, readable versions of our case study data from information gathered globally. The results included eight case study booklets – cohesive in design though categorized by color – and corresponding one-pagers. The booklets encompass a project titled Adding Content to Contact: Case Studies on Antenatal and Postnatal Care.

W&HI has recently finalized a series of articles based on the larger case study project for An International Journal of Obstetrics & Gynaecology. BJOG will also be reproducing the case studies we designed to supplement these new articles.

We look forward to seeing our work printed and published in such an esteemed journal.

Veronica and Ryan Wedding Invitation

Congratulations Veronica and Ryan!

The lovebirds recently exchanged vows down on Cape Cod, and we were so proud to have been part of their big day.

Crafting a Chinese-American Wedding Invitation Design

Our studiomates at Studio Nouveau, already hired to photograph the wedding, only had one emphatic recommendation when the bride asked where to get invitations designed: Someone Creative. And we were excited to have a client willing to Go There when we suggested a silkscreened poster for this Chinese-American wedding invitation, wrapped, rolled and mailed in a glossy gold tube. Veronica’s Chinese ancestry and Ryan’s modern aesthetic greatly influenced the design: a huge gold dragon enveloping clean, crisp, red text and an intricate red pattern on the back. Coupled with letterpress gold favor cards and origami boats as escort cards, the guests knew exactly the kind of fun and stylish wedding they were invited to celebrate.

Lucent Wedding Films Logo Design

A Wedding Videography Genius

Justin Schroth is a video master. Not only does his Lucent Media brand cover sporting events and offer a slow motion video booth service, but the man shoots weddings as well! And we aren’t talking your average, run-of-the-mill wedding videos – those interminable and stale momentos only watched once by the newlyweds. We are talking Wedding Films. Sweeping shots, the perfect music, just the right amount of cuts to dancing queens – his films truly capture the energy of his clients’ weddings.

Logo Design for Lucent Wedding Films

When we were asked to help rebrand Lucent Weddings, we had some great footage to pull from to really understand what his brand is all about. We started with the name: adding Films is an instant nod to prospective clients that this service is provided by a craftsman. Next: Lucent. Justin had initially wanted a fun play on video + wedding but once we got down to sketching, we knew it had to be deeper than that. His energy and unique creative perspective had to be matched with the amount of fun he brings. Once we delved into the definition of Lucent as “emitting light” – like a projected film or camera lights do – the ideas flowed. And the Lucent firefly, coupled with a friendly but sophisticated typeface, was born.

Justin is in total love of his company’s new identity and feels fully confident moving forward with a professional logo design for wedding videographer that speaks to exactly what he is all about.

Elinor Ross Event Planner Brand Design

Our good friend Elinor Ross recently decided to leave her in-house Event Planner position at a local private school to start her own planning business. With a huge footprint in the community and an expansive network of contacts as well as venues, she was already in a great position to make it happen.

Event Planner Brand Design

Having created the brand identity for another of Elinor’s ventures, Miss Artsy Craftsy, Someone Creative was hired to do the brand identity design for this latest project. Miss Artsy Craftsy conveyed so much of Elinor’s personality that we made the decision to have the identity of her planning business be an extension of that – a cousin to it even. We designed the Elinor Ross logo, stationery and direct mail pieces as well as a simple interim slideshow-portfolio website and Facebook business page.
