The studio has created a diverse range of brand identities. From Modern, Vintage, Contemporary, Traditional, International to a blending of various styles. I have an expansive visual vocabulary that I use to give your brand a unique, identifiable look. This signature studio quality is what distinguishes all our logos/logotype solutions. I'd love to discuss any visual asset needs you have. Logos are a mix of Jargon Boy Design Studio & The Local Brand Co. 

The Vitameatavegamin Productions branded wallpaper logo was featured in The New York Times Fashion & Style section in an article on founder Maria Arena Bell (Former MOCA Co-Chair & current Life Trustee). Click the case study link to find out more about the thinking behind the logo and it's applications. The project was produced as Jargon Boy Design Studio.
