Hair Salon "Hairspray"
small salon needed not only a new facelift, it desperately needed
a business identity! The salon's overall floor
plan was unecessarily divided into a few small rooms, making the
space look small. The walls were painted into a wild pallet of colors.
The salon's space was not utilized to its full potential. The good
news was a substantial ceiling height which allowed to archive interested
lighting effects and to create a relaxing atmosphere for customers.
Clean lines, the natural cozy feeling of wood and splashes of bright
colors created a unique look of the space. Sexy images framed on
walls are attractive and inspiring.

Law Office of Virginia Webber
Virginia Webber, an estate planning and business attorney, wanted
to freshen up the look of her office and to create a feminine comfortable
atmosphere for her visitors. The existing space lacked a character
or a sense of a professional law
office. One of the design goals was to preserve a familiar and
“home like” sensation for the estate planning clients.
selected yellow tones for the walls to bring more light and joyful
feelings to visitors. The white trim framing each room also added
more light and traditional character to the office. We’ve
specified paintings by Daniel Merriam
to bring desired femininity and weightlessness to the overall design.

Store Front Redesign
old store needed a fresh look and to attract passers-by
. The existing signage was outdated and the overall
look of the building did not have any appeal. The store is visible
from a near by road but how would you make it more inviting? The
store name signage did not tell a story of the product.
product and the overall branding of the store we
came up with the new store front idea. Images of jumping kids in
clouds playfully illustrate softness of the beds. A new acrylic
sign was added on the corner of the building as well. New acrylic
lit-up panels were applied around the store windows to complement
the existing building’s design.
store front - AFTER
leading man not only earns Oscars but also a prime spot on the cover
of Vanity Fair's first green issue. In association with his award-winning
role in Syriana, Clooney launched Oil Change, a campaign to say
good night and good luck to America's dependence on oil.
And to drive the point home, he's frequently seen out and about
with his eco-friendly Tango
electric car, which is a commuter's dream car. The revolutionary
Tango combines the speed and agility of a motorcycle with the security
of a high-performance sports car. To most, it really looks like
a regular car which was slightly squished on the sides to make it
go between two lanes in traffic. Look for yourself HERE!
