2016 Ohio Brew Week Poster Art

June 3, 2016
OBW2016

The Ohio Brew Week design was a fun one this year! When prompted with a sort of “history of brewing” theme, KMS went all the way back to the monks (they’ve got such a classic look). OBW 2016 was inspired by the artwork in medieval manuscripts and the process & tradition of brewing. Can’t wait to get to tasting! The 2016 Ohio Brew Week is July 15th thru July 23rd. Yes, that’s 9 days of [...]

The good folks at Casa Nueva wanted a new look for their salsa jars. They wanted to promote their new ventures Casa Cantina and Casa Bodega along with their Casa Nueva Brand. The idea was to use their iconic storefront as a way of advertising all three brands. The result is an oil painting of the restaurant’s classic storefront that includes scenes of their core services: food, drinks, and entertainment. The storefront scene even includes [...]

GO in Style!

GObus2016

The wonderful folks at Hocking Athens Perry Community Action who manage the Intercity Bus Route also known as GoBus, came to KMS for some ideas for designing the look of their new buses. The original idea was to do some flames like an old hot rod, but then we thought that a “bus on fire” wouldn’t be very appealing. We settled on wings. It creates the feeling of speed AND comfort, like you’re floating to [...]

One of our favorite clients is Space, from Space Cadet Soaps. She is truly a beautiful person. You will not find more kind, roots righteous people than Space her husband Smiles and their three boys Simon, Eli and Forest.

kevin_morgan_athens_county

Kevin was approached by the Athens County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau to update the logo for the Athens Tourism Bureau. He wanted to keep the logo simple and inviting, so he used bright colors, flowing lines and a “sunburst e” to grab your attention and keep you focused on the word “Athens”. Reaction to the new logo has been fantastic. Check out their Facebook page to see the logo in action.
