This event is a free annual Spring art and wine festival held in downtown Mountain View. When the festival logo was redesigned in 2009, the association wanted a fun and unique logo that conveyed the variety of offerings at the festival: art, music, and food. (Many of the restaurants offer outside dining).
The logo serves as the centerpiece for all of the print and online collateral pieces: • Poster • Newspaper/online ads • Social media graphics • T-Shirt • Wine Glass

Client: Tse Chen Ling Center for Tibetan Buddhist Studies (San Francisco, CA)
When Tse Chen Ling requested a logomark they wanted it to represent their growing center and its mission of serving the community by offering teachings in a supportive and compassionate environment. The lotus and couch shell are two of the eight auspicious Tibetan Buddhist symbols. The lotus symbolizes compassion and purity. The conch shell symbolizes the calling together of an assembly, and the Buddhist teachings spreading in all directions like the sound of the couch trumpet. The melding of the two symbols created a modern logomark, steeped in tradition.
