A peek into a recent branding with the passionate team at For Life. They will be offering a tasty selection of organic, cold-pressed juice for immunity support, energy, and overall health. A selection of iconography was created to coincide with the brands mission of finding vitalization through nature and Earth’s natural resources. For the typography, a sans serif, geometric typeface was curated to establish the minimal aesthetic. Look for these crafted elixirs in Seattle markets and fine establishments in the coming months.

The Latino/a Educational Achievement Project (LEAP) exists to improve the academic culture for Latino and Latina students in Washington state. Ballasiotes helped transform the look of the organization to relate to the younger generation while still being relevant to the NGO sector and their respected partnerships. With a color palette representing advocacy and syncing with LEAP’s parent organization, Sea Mar, the branding approach fits in perfect unison with the goals of this community-lifting company.


These past few weeks, I’ve been working on a handful of fun typography, branding, and pattern projects. Below you’ll notice a few works in progress. I’m loving these colors and the mixture of cut paper patterns and ink brush strokes.


Ballasiotes was tasked with the challenge of developing an identity for the photo and direction studio, Cave, with the main goal to build a brand creative that could be applied to the studios portrait photography (subject) as well as their accessory work (object). Several concepts were designed to be used for multiple applications and mediums. Type design and photo applications were created to show the branding in use and it’s broad range of possibilities.


I always have a fun time getting to work with the creative individuals at Compendium here in Seattle. These typographic journals are filled with inspirational and uplifting messages to help encourage writing, brainstorming, and doodling. Compendium has a bunch of other stylie, little creative tools and you can snag this journal and others from their online shop here.

I had the pleasure of working with one of my best friends on this fun little branding project. He came to me with the idea of starting a non-profit, afterschool program for kids. The focus would be on engaging activities, solid moral values, and giving the kids a foundation of love and nurturing that they might not receive elsewhere. The program hasn’t begun yet, but when it does, it’s gonna be radical.
