Spoke

wine bar and eatery

Spoke is a fine neighborhood eatery specializing in farm-to-table food and a curated drink menu. Most importantly its warm, intimate atmosphere provides a place where conversations and community can happen.

GSS designed a logo that connotes a speech bubble and an end quote. The bottle and wine glass graphics were designed into a felt mural that ran the length of the restaurant. Using the colored felt supported the look and feel and helped create a space conducive to conversations.

Tufts Community Appeal

Tufts Community Appeal

Tufts Community Appeal is the annual faculty and staff opportunity to donate to a cause of their choice, through payroll, that enhances the greater good.

GSS created the campaign’s logo and materials for two years of appeals. The new design features the elephant (Tufts University's mascot) with a large heart and a trumpeting trunk to represent the generosity of the community as a whole. Paired with speech bubbles, the first poster connotes a chorus of voices that together creates a larger impact while conveying a feeling of celebration. Repeating elements designed around a central theme of flowing hearts are used in subsequent campaigns to convey the appeal’s core message that many small acts of caring and generosity yield powerful results.

What You Don't Know About Me

What You Don't Know About Me

Community-Based Collaborative Art Project

Charles Coe, a 2017 Boston Artist-In-Residence, gathered personal stories from residents of the Mission Hill neighborhood highlighting unexpected or surprising aspects of their lives. The project seeks to encourage us all, in an increasingly divided society, to move beyond stereotypes and preconceptions and engage our neighbors with open minds.

GSS designed the logo and exhibition panels. The show, originally based out of the Tobin Community Center in Dorchester MA, is ongoing in the main branch of the Boston Public Library.

Squam Art Workshops

Squam Art Workshops started as a retreat in 2008 where like-minded souls who had originally collected in online communities could connect in place, and in nature, and explore different artistic mediums on Squam Lake in New Hampshire. Now in its 10th year, Squam, as it is now fondly called by its thousands of dedicated acolytes, attendees, instructors and sponsors, continues its mission of 'creativity as a way of life' both in situ and online.

GSS was instrumental in the conception and design of the original website and materials for Squam's first three years.

With Tenacity

with Tenacity

withTenacity was developed to be a consortium of high-level female marketing consultants that could pool their talents to offer businesses marketing consultation on an ad-hoc and short-term basis. The firm gives clients access to a high-level alternative to employing a fulltime in-house marketing team while allowing the women in the consortium to work flexible hours.

GSS designed an identity that was both flexible and tenacious, using a kit-of-parts approach to their look and feel. The hummingbird was chosen for its iconic energy, multi-tasking curiosity, and its tenacity.

The smaller saddle-wired pocket agendas contained fold-out leaves to hold the floor plans of the event.

What Flow Looks Like Today

WFLLT.space is a website where I share my artistic output that doesn't fall neatly into the category of graphic design. My graphic design work is nourished by my personal work, and my artistic pursuits are enhanced by the eye I have developed in my years as a graphic designer.
