Go (math) team, go!

Every week, the president of the National Museum of Mathematics creates two puzzles that appear in both The Wall Street Journal and the website varsity.momath.org. The task here was to create a logo for these puzzles for their title: Varsity Math. The number to the bottom right of the logo indicates which week the puzzles are related to – a later addition to the design that I’m quite pleased with. It reflects the theme and is easily changed from week-to-week.


It’s getting real (estate) in here.

Eventually I’m going to run out of real estate puns… or whatever you’d call these truly awful headlines. I was contracted to create a new brand (logo and business card) for a pre-existing client who was considering branching out into the real estate market. We were looking to create a look that said “high-end” condos and co-ops for the up and coming sections of Western Brooklyn & Queens. The venture is still being developed, but the logo and card have been solidified. And here they are:

Rising to the occasion

Being hired to update a logo concept is an interesting exercise. It isn’t purely creative but a challenge in creating a variation that (one) doesn’t forget the “feel” and (two) respects the original design. I was handed the hand-drawn version which I felt had a very personal feel to it… kind of street and also welcoming to a curious customer. Trying to keep this in mind, this is the final result.

Down(real-e)state New York

tiny little mind has recently been engaged by Clarke Realty to create new business cards and promotional material for their real estate sales efforts in New Rochelle and the surrounding area. When I went up to meet with the client I was blown away by the beauty of the place… even in the dead of this crazy New York winter. I cannot wait to go back up with my camera to take pictures when Spring really takes hold for the upcoming direct mail campaign. Below is newly designed business card concept.

In search of a healthy lifestyle…

On the heels of the logo design for The Fitness Detective, here are the business cards we designed. We (and the client) were quite pleased with the slogan we developed for her as well. It helped marry the concepts of detective work and personal training which otherwise might have been at worst meaningless and at best confusing to the target audience.  “Why ‘The Fitness Detective’?” Because we solve the mysteries of personal fitness.


The right “fit” for a logo…

Jannette La Sota is a personal trainer and fitness coach in Queens, New York, who decided the time had come for a fresh new brand for her business. She contacted tiny little mind and after a meeting to learn as much about her business, clientele, target audience, and hopes for the future of her endeavor, we created a logo and began the process of crafting a brand that would fulfill her needs. If you are looking to get in shape, look no further than “The Fitness Detective.”
